Heavenly Father, the God of Light & Life, thank You for the believers in Iraq & Syria. Bless them & keep them. Empower them by the Holy Spirit to rebuild their homes as Nehemiah rebuilt the wall of Jerusalem. Destroy the spirits of doubt, despair & fear that would hinder them & fill them with your Holy Spirit that they might walk in power, love & temperance. Thwart every attempt of their enemies to steal, kill or destroy from this day forward. Cover their lives, homes, schools, workplaces & communities by the cleansing blood of Jesus to begin anew with peace. Let them build their lives on the Rock, that their homes, communities & countries might be restored in the hope & joy of the salvation of Jesus Christ. In the powerful, matchless name of Jesus Christ we pray, Amen.
