Peoples of Yemen

Yemen continues to rage. Psalm 46:6 (ESV) says: “The nations rage, the kingdoms totter; [God] utters his voice, the earth melts.” But God doesn’t stop there! Verse 7 says: “The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.” The Lord of hosts–the commander of angel armies–is with the Yemeni believers. God is their fortress, their defense! Verse 1 encourages dependence on the Lord, who is their “refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” These are times of trouble in Yemen, but Jesus is with His people. One of the most soul-sustaining promises of Jesus is: “I am with you always, to the end of the age” (Matthew 28:20). Pray for Yemeni believers, asking that the Spirit will remind them that they are not alone; God is with them. Pray that they will take refuge and find strength in Jesus’ presence. Ask God to protect them from the schemes of the evil one to destroy them. May they experience the help of God’s presence in times of trouble.
