Pray

“Remember the prisoners, as though in prison with them, and those who are ill-treated, since you yourselves also are in the body.”

– Hebrews 13:3, NASB

The church universal is still being persecuted all over the world.  According to reports by International Christian Concerns known as our bridge to the persecuted church, Christians in the Middle East, Syria and Africa are facing serious persecution at the hands of enemies of the cross.

According to an article on their website:

300,000 Christians Flee War, Persecution in Syria

4/7/2013 Syria (Asia News)

Some 300,000 Christians are living as refugees after escaping war and persecution in Syria, Asia News reports. While people from every political, ethnic, and religious background are suffering in Syria’s civil war, Christians have found themselves in a very unique and frightening situation, having widely chosen not to take up arms or to openly support either the rebels or the regime. However, as time goes by, “host families do not have enough resources to help Syrian refugees,” the CNEWA director noted. By contrast, “requests are increasing day by day. Soon no one will be able to afford even the most basic aid.” Christians in Syria also fear they might become a target for Islamic extremists. (www.Persecution.org)

 

 

Please pray for safety, for shelter and help for the refugees and that above all our God will be glorified and His name proclaimed.
