Rise up Father and live mightily through your children in the Middle East. May your light shine through them. Wrap your arms around them. Love them. Protect them. Reveal yourself to them. Give them strength, wisdom, peace, and joy. Lead them to souls that are open to you. And lead my heart to prayer at times when I can support them before your throne. We will spend eternity worshiping you and sharing our stories, but until then help us fulfill your mission. Grace and peace, Father.
