Syrian Bedouin make up around 12% of the population of Syria and have special
reservations in the Syrian parliament. Though many have been forced by the
government to settle in towns, many maintain their pastoral lifestyle and a strong
tribal loyalty which unites them.
• Bedouin life in Syria has undergone enormous strain with intrusions from non-
Bedouins into their traditional lands which are draining water tables and degrading
the land with modern technology. Pray for specialized ministry that will help
address these needs with the compassion of Christ.
• The Bedouin's livelihood is under
threat by rogue militias in need of resources for the Syrian war. Pray for peace to
come to Syria and
that God might use this situation to draw those he is calling to salvation in the
Prince of Peace.
• Thousands of Syrian Bedouins have become refugees in Jordan and Turkey but they are
often not given aid because
they refuse to register or stay in official camps. Pray for those seeking to reach
out to them that they would find open doors and hearts to God's word.
Heavenly Father, our hearts break for the suffering of the Syrian Bedouins but you
alone have the answer. Send your Holy Spirit into their midst and draw them into the
redemptive love of your Son Jesus.
