Description: Palestinians in Jordan descend primarily from refugees who fled Palestine (the West Bank) between 1947 and 1967 following the creation of the state of Israel. Today, most are fully integrated into Jordanian society. Jordan is the first country to intentionally try to integrate its Palestinian refugees.

Prayer Points:
• Jordanian Palestinians are torn between the desire to return home to the West Bank and their new home in Jordan, which is all that most younger Palestinians know. Pray that in Christ they might find their eternal home and an anchor for their souls.
• Palestinians in Jordan still face discrimination, and their is mounting unrest as they are increasingly denied access to universities and other institutions. Pray that Arab Christians in Jordan might advocate on their behalf and welcome them into their homes and churches.
• There are around 370,000 Palestinians still living in ten UN refugee camps in Jordan. Pray that churches might be started in these camps and permeate the atmosphere with the powerful praise and worship of Jesus.

A Prayer: Heavenly Father, may that which has been lost among the Palestinians be restored in your Son Jesus. May they find in Him the hope which they are searching for.
Each year 28,000 Jordanian Palestinians die without Christ.
