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. Bring ISIS members, leaders & other extremists to repentance. May those in the surrounding culture come to know Christ. May changed hearts & lives enable the Church ro grow in numbers & maturity, rebuild Christian communities & restore hope. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
