Jordan

Visitors are attracted to Jordan's ancient historical sites and unspoiled natural locations. Today however, Christians make up only two percent of the population and face potentially being ostracized from their families and communities.

MORE INFORMATION ABOUT JORDAN

  • Population: 7,930,491 (July 2014 est.)
  • Official Language: Arabic (official)
  • Religious Make-Up: Muslim 97.2% (predominantly Sunni), Christian 2.2%
  • State of Economy: With one of the smallest economies in the Middle East, Jordan struggles to provide adequate supplies of water, oil, and other natural resources to its citizens. In the past three years, the government has approved a handful of relief and budgetary supplement packages meant to improve living conditions for low and middle class Jordanians. However, the country continues to rely heavily on foreign assistance, especially as a continued influx of Syrian refugees affects expenditures.
  • State of the church: Evangelical believers in Jordan comprise less than .1% of the population. Small fellowships of Muslim background believers have begun to develop. Large areas of the country have no groups of believers gathering in them.

Pray for Jordan

Thank You, Father, for the country of Jordan with its beautiful deserts and immense mountains. Thank You for an encouraging growth of Your church despite some pressure from authorities. We pray for the Jordanian people as they are overwhelmed with the number of refugees from Iraq, Iran and Syria. Let the Jordanian Christians reflect Your love onto them and give the government the ability to deal with the situation wisely.
