Escalation between Iran and Gulf States

Within the past few months, Iran-backed Houthi rebels have taken over the capital city Sanaa in Yemen. The Houthi’s are a minority Shi’ite group in Yemen who have been in conflict with the Saudi-backed, Yemenite president. Now this rebel group has been trying to expand their territory of control essentially bringing Saudi forces into a type of proxy war with Iran. More than 1,000 people have been killed in the past month in this Sunni-Shiite conflict. Now other terrorist groups like al-Qaeda are capitalizing on the mayhem. Please pray for the stability of the Middle East and for God’s sovereignty on any shifting that will occur through these wars.
