Dear God & Father, I pray for believers in 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. Open the hearts of extremist & terrorist members & leaders to You. May their changed hearts & a growing Church help rebuild strong Christian communities & bring pace, hope & justice to these areas & make things safe for all. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
