Dear God & Father, I pray for believers throughout the Middle East: Protect, provide for, comfort, strengthen, encourage & guide them. May they stay strong & united in faith, hope & love, committed to Christ & growing in numbers & maturity. Bring members & leaders of ISIS & other extremist groups to repentance. May their changed hearts help stabilize this region, rebuild Christian communities & make things safer for all, including in surrounding areas. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
