Weekly Watch Focus: Persecuted Christians in Syria

FRIDAY, Dec 6, 2013,
In recent days nearly 450,000 people, more than one third of the Christian population of Syria have fled the country. Christians have lived in this region of the Bible Lands since the time of Christ. In the last two years war, persecution, massacres, and daily violence have displaced these Christians. Many have been killed by extremist, jihadi groups that are supported by Western governments. Today, thousands of Syrian Christians are in dire circumstances, living in refugee camps in neighboring countries. Pray for our Syrian Christian brothers and sisters. Pray that peace would return to Syria and that these thousands could return to their homes. Also remember in prayer other persecuted Christians under great pressure for their faith in many Islamic nations.

Ps. 91:9-11,  “Because you have made the LORD, who is my refuge, even the Most High, your dwelling place, no evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling; for He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways.”

Romans 8:36-37, "For Your sake we are killed all day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us"

2 Cor. 12:10, "Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ's sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong."
Isaiah 19:23-25, “In that day there will be a highway from Egypt to Assyria, and the Assyrian will come into Egypt and the Egyptian into Assyria, and the Egyptians will serve with the Assyrians. In that day Israel will be one of three with Egypt and Assyria—a blessing in the midst of the land, whom the Lord of hosts shall bless, saying, ‘Blessed is Egypt My people, and Assyria the work of My hands, and Israel My inheritance.’”
