There is a Church in Syria
Don't let this be
The Church in Syria
Targeted for destruction
- Kidnap and torture
- Sexual assault
Christians in Syria are not only caught in the crossfire of the country’s civil war but are also singled out for atrocities by Islamist rebels. Christian leaders are particular targets, and numerous church buildings have been deliberately destroyed.
Displaced and desperate
Attacks, threats and the invasion of Christian areas by extremists have forced hundreds of thousands of Christians to flee their homes with nothing. Hunger and hardship have become the norm. Food, water, medicines, electricity and petrol are in short supply, and prices have sky-rocketed.
- That every Syrian Christian will know the peace of the Lord despite the trauma they are enduring
- That any decisions made about Syria by Western governments will be made with all Syrians, and especially vulnerable minorities, in mind
- That God will meet all of their material needs
