Jordan

For most of Jordan’s history since independence, King Hussein (1953-99), who maintained good relationships with major world powers and signed a formal peace treaty with Israel, ruled Jordan. Following Hussein's death, his son, King Abdallah II, ascended to the throne.
Today, turmoil in the Middle East profoundly affects life, due to loss of land, massive influx of refugees and economic disruption. Jordan relinquished its claim to the West Bank area, but Palestinians are the largest group in the nation.
Islam is the state religion, but the constitution prohibits discrimination and promotes the free exercise of religious belief and worship. The Church has a visible public presence and relative freedom, but there is some pressure on evangelical churches. Jordan is a centre for many Christian activities and ministries, and much Christian work in the Middle East would suffer were a setback to occur in Jordan. A number of converts find life difficult; pressure comes from family, work and society. Emigration is often seen as an obvious and safe option.

Prayer Requests

  • Pray for Christians who face the challenges of living within the constraints of Islamic law.
  • Pray for the freedom to proclaim the gospel and for followers of Jesus to be able to remain in Jordan.
  • Ask God to bring forth more church leaders and other servants of the Lord in Jordan to continue His work in the nation (Matthew 9:36-38).

    [terrorism of Al Quaeda: for Saudi imperialism] video: "Terrorists of the USA kill dozens of people in a great attack to destabilize the government of Syria"]], Two powerful explosions hit the region of Qazaz in Damascus on Thursday, killing around 55 people and leaving hundreds injured. "Two terrorist explosions hit Damascus near al-Qazaz intersection at the southern ring-road", state news agency, SANA, said, adding that the explosions "took place at a densely populated area as they coincided with the employees and the students are going to their jobs and schools". Television footage at the site of the blasts showed an apocalyptic scene with charred bodies and the carcasses of vehicles with smoke still rising from them. STOP BLOODSHED. The Head of the UN mission in Syria, Major General Robert Mood appealed for help to stop the bloodshed in the country, as he visited the site of the attacks.

    [terrorism of Al Quaeda: for Saudi imperialism] video: "Terrorists of the USA kill dozens of people in a great attack to destabilize the government of Syria"]],"This is yet another example of the suffering brought upon the people of Syria from acts of violence", the Norwegian general said as he visited the site of one of the blasts. "We, the world community, are here with the Syrian people and I call on everyone within and outside Syria to help stop this violence", he said, according to a statement. Mood surveyed the damage left by the explosions which came just a day after the Norwegian general escaped unharmed when a roadside bomb exploded as he led a team of UN observers into the southern flashpoint city of Daraa. Six Syrian soldiers escorting them were reportedly hurt in Wednesday's bombing.
