Daily Prayer - Wednesday 18 January 2012
Please continue to pray for our Christian brothers and sisters in Syria in these uncertain times. According to the United Nations, more than 3,500 people have died during months of anti-government protests in the country. Most Christians have not been involved, as the churches have been generally well treated under the regime of President Assad, despite being subject to various restrictions. But some believers have been killed, and all are facing the menacing possibility of a new government dominated by Islamists. Pray that the current international efforts to restore stability to Syria will succeed, and that future political change will benefit and not harm the Christian community.
