Pray for Refugees

Many of us are familiar with multi-ethnic communities enriched by cultural influences from Europe, Asia, Africa, the Caribbean and more.  Similarly, the Arab world sees movements of people across borders.  Jordan, for example, has many Palestinians, who shifted east of the Jordan River in several waves last century.

With recent conflicts, many Iraqis, Syrians and Libyans were forced to move and now live as refugees in other countries – namely Turkey, Jordan and Tunisia.  A number seek access to Europe with varying degrees of success, too.

Spotlight on Syriasmall child in poverty

Some estimate that 2,000 refugees* are crossing the border from Syria into surrounding nations every day. Each person represents a home, a family and a community devastated by the ongoing violence and hatred in the divided land of Syria.

Pray for these people on the move.  May God meet their needs through His people. May they also pursue a journey of faith in Christ.

The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it,
the world, and all who live in it…
Psalm 24:1
