Day of Prayer for the persecuted Church - Syria
Country/Region: Middle East and North Africa, Syria
As Syria has descended into chaos and civil war, Christians have increasingly suffered targeted violence from the opposition forces, and tens of thousands have been displaced from their homes. Ask the Lord to meet the needs of His suffering people, those still in Syria and those who have fled abroad. Pray for God’s guidance for church leaders, that they may be able to protect their flock, spiritually and physically. Pray for all those Christians who have been bereaved, that they will know the comfort of the Lord Jesus. Pray too for an end to the fighting and for peace to be restored.
