Khalil* is heavy-hearted for the struggling Church in his homeland. As the conflict in Syria intensifies, so does the passion in our media worker’s prayer life. Alongside rejoicing at the news of fellow-Syrians turning to Christ, Khalil is burdened for the future of the Church. He shares:
“Every day we pray and cry out to God to know His will for Syria. Will the Christian presence in Syria disappear altogether? Will all the churches close?
The pastor of one church in Damascus reports that only fifty people remain from the regular congregation of over 250. Some Christians are afraid to leave their homes while many have fled to Jordan, Lebanon or Turkey.
So I echo the words of the prophet: ‘Oh, that my head were a spring of water and my eyes a fountain of tears! I would weep day and night for the slain of my people.’ (Jeremiah 9:1)
We are weeping and pouring out our hearts before the Lord, begging Him to have mercy on the people of Syria, to protect His children from being scattered and His Church from disappearing.”
Join Khalil in interceding for our brothers and sisters in Christ caught in the crossfire. Whatever the conflict’s outcome, may a strong Christian presence remain to share the gospel of grace with Muslims. Labour with us in prayer for a remnant to glorify Christ in post-war Syria.
