Arab Gulf Shia

(SHEE-ah) – As two believers shared breakfast with Zahra, the topic of prayer came up. One of the believers asked her if Allah spoke to her when she prayed. She responded by saying no, that she does not have a relationship with him because he feels too far off. This opened up an opportunity for the believers to share the story of when God met Hagar in the wilderness. Hagar had responded, “You are a God of seeing. Truly here I have seen him who looks after me” (Genesis 16:13 ESV). The believers shared that the God of Christianity is different and desires a relationship with her. Pray for Zahra to believe that God sees her and is standing at the door, waiting to welcome her.
