The Middle East is in the news even more than usual these days. Here are some key points for prayer:
- Pray for wisdom for world leaders as they make decisions that can drastically affect the lives of many people in the region (1 Tim. 2).
- Pray for believers in conflict zones to trust in the Lord’s protection, for him to protect them, and for opportunities to demonstrate the love of Christ through word and works.
- Pray for the refugees that have streamed into surrounding countries. Pray that God would raise up many people to provide for their immediate relief needs, as well as those who would be able to think ahead to development needs whenever the conflict subsides.
- Pray for churches and ministries in this region to have wisdom to know how to serve refugees well, as well as how to continue faithfully in their ministries during times of uncertainty.
