 The UAE And Things To Know

Hump Day - Day Of Prayer For The Muslim World Vol. 152

"I will bless those who bless you." Genesis 12:3

Last Thursday, August 13, 2020, President Trump surprised the world with the announcement of a remarkable agreement that had been made between the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Israel.

Since the agreement was reached, Israel and the UAE have instituted direct phone service between the nations and agreed to mutual studies on finding a cure for COVID 19.

You may not know much about the UAE, so today we focus on this nation located on the Arabian Peninsula.

The UAE - Fast Facts

  • Its actually a federation made up of 7 separate emirates
  • Population - 9.9 million
  • Only 1/9 of the Emirate residents are citizens - the remainder are foreign workers
  • Home to the world's largest shopping mall and tallest building 
  • Mohammad bin Zayed Al Nahyan (see photo below) is considered to be the most powerful Arab in the world!

The UAE And Religion

  • Apostasy is punishable by death based on Sharia Law
  • Stoning and flogging are legal forms of punishment
  • Women who report having been raped are frequently jailed and sometimes flogged for reporting the rape
  • 31 of 36 people groups in UAE considered to be unreached
  • 1.19% followers of Jesus - the vast majority are foreign workers from non-Muslim backgrounds

The UAE And Israel Agreement - Its Effects

  Prayer Points - (JF = Jesus Followers)
  1. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem (Psalm 122:6)
  2. Pray for the three men who were architects of the UAE and Israel agreement (I Timothy 2:1-4)
