Source of persecution: Islamic extremism/Dictatorial paranoia/Tribal antagonism
The church landscape is comparable to pre-civil war Syria, with a certain amount of freedom for traditional Christians. There is relative tolerance for Muslim-background believers; however, leaving Islam is not officially recognised and public evangelisation of Muslims is against government policy. Converts can find their marriages annulled and children taken from them. They also encounter discrimination and the threat of mental and physical abuse. Radical Islamists are becoming more active in society and there have been reports of violence and killings of Muslim-background believers.
Give thanks for encouraging signs of growth, both from within the nominal Christian community, and Muslims coming to faith
For the growing church among refugees from Iraq and Syria
Jordan has not been greatly affected by the Arab Spring. Pray that the political situation will remain stable.
