A Call for Prayer: President Trump Launches Airstrikes on Syria

April 13, 2018 by Brian in Persecution updates

President Trump announced airstrikes on Syria in coordination with the UK and France on Friday.

The strikes come nearly a week after Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s use of chemical weapons on his own people took the lives of more than 40 adults and children.

In a special address to the nation, President Trump said he recently ordered the United States armed forces to launch precision strikes on chemical weapons targets. He went on to say, “The evil and the despicable attack left mothers and fathers, infants and children thrashing in pain and gasping for air. These are not the actions of a man. They are crimes of a monster instead.”

Please join us in prayer for the people of Syria during this tragic and complex time.

Syria is experiencing extremely difficult circumstances. For believers and non-believers alike, they are living with constant threats from a monstrous regime and unending civil war to poverty and overall instability.

We work closely with many partners in Syria.

And we know many of you have joined with your brothers and sisters in Christ in Syria to help them rebuild their homes, churches in communities in the wake of ISIS. These brave believers returned to their homes to be a light and many of them live in Homs and Damascus—near the targeted strikes.

We will keep you updated on their well-being as we hear more from our team on the ground.

We firmly believe it’s in the DNA of every believer to care for the suffering church—and we ask for your urgent prayers.

We wait in hope for the Lord; He is our help and our shield. In Him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in His holy name. May your unfailing love be with us, Lord, even as we put our hope in you.

Christians in Syria are facing so much, and you can stand with believers in this region in their greatest time of need by giving today.
