Who will set Syria Free?

Syrian Christians brace themselves for civil war.

Syria is facing a civil war and Christians are preparing for the worst.

Fundamental Islamic groups have orchestrated violent protests against the Syrian government. This could result in a new regime, even worse than that of the current brutality of President Assad.

If a change of power occurs…the revenge of the Sunnis could be more bloody than the over 8,300 deaths that have occurred since March 2011.

Open Doors has been working around the clock to deliver whatever is needed to prepare Syrian Christians for difficult years ahead. In fact, 2011 was the best year ever in terms of our distribution of Bibles and Christian materials.

Christians in dozens of countries around the world face the same complex dilemma where they cannot count on governments to protect them.

But they can count the prayers of the church and the power of God through His Word to see them through whatever battles are sure to come.

“Before I didn’t see the importance of prayer,” Leah* says from Syria. “I began to see how the people of God are coming together in fasting and prayers then understood what it means to be the body of Christ.”

“My faith became stronger because I am not alone.”

Would you please join Leah and millions like her who ask that you pray for their safety and courage?

Through your prayers and the delivery of Bibles, discipleship training and practical support, they can find that courage and security in Christ.

Thank you for supporting our brothers and sisters who live where faith costs the most.

 

In Christ,
