About Qatar

  • Leader:Emir Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al-Thani
  • Government:Republic
  • Population:2.1 million (210,000 Christians)
  • Main Religion:Islam
  • Persecution Level:Severe

90% of Qatar’s population of about two million is made up of migrant laborers. The Qataris (10%) enjoy the highest GDP per capita in the world. Expatriates and migrant workers are generally perceived and treated by Qataris as slaves. Forced labor and human trafficking are major problems. Working conditions for migrant workers can be inhumane and dangerous; they face underpayment, domestic violence, sexual abuse and lack proper living conditions. It is not uncommon for them to die at their work place.

Prayer Points for Qatar

  • Pray for Christian migrant workers to show the love of Christ to employers who abuse them.
  • Pray for Christian converts who feel they cannot share their faith with Muslim family members.
  • Pray that Qataris would be drawn to Christ by whatever means God deems necessary.
