The Iraqi Bedouin live primarily in the Southern part of Iraq. Large numbers can be
found near the port city of Basra. Their travels through the desert are largely in
pursuit of water sources for their herds of camels and sheep.
• Many Iraqi Bedouins are considered "stateless" citizens and are without ID cards.
As a result they can be imprisoned on suspicion of being terrorists if caught in
cities. Pray that the Iraqi Bedouins might find their true identity in Christ and
look to him alone for their hope and security.
• Due to the many wars fought in Iraq, Bedouins are in constant danger from hidden
mines that can kill lives or destroy their livestock. Pray for specialized ministry
to assist the Bedouins in identifying and clearing these explosives.
• Iraqi Bedouins have taken a strong stand against Islamic terrorist groups and
made a major contribution in fighting them. Pray that both young and old warriors
Bedouin might be reserved for the proclamation of the Lord Jesus throughout Iraq
Heavenly Father, open a highway for the gospel to advance among every Iraqi Bedouin
family, clan and tribe. May your healing hands touch their land and bring them
