Dear God & Father, I pray for Christians throughout the Middle East: Protect, provide for, comfort, strengthen, encourage & guide them. May they be & stay strong in faith, hope & love, committed to Christ & grow in numbers & maturity. Restore entire communities; enable Christians to be a vibrant & strong presence again. May their lives draw those around them to Jesus. Bring ISIS members & leaders to repentance. Through their conversion, may peace rule. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
