Weekly Watch Focus: Christian Suffering in the Middle East

Friday, Nov 7, 2014, Prince Charles this week has emphasized the terrible persecution and murder of Christians and other minorities in the Middle East and called on Muslim leaders to help end the “indescribable tragedy” in Syria and Iraq. Addressing the House of Lords, the Prince of Wales claimed that Christians are the most persecuted minority in the world today, especially in the Muslim world. Christians, Yazidis, and other young, minority women continue to be enslaved and misused by ISIS terrorists. He pointed out that Christians have lived in peace for 2,000 years, but not have been made homeless.

Pray for our suffering brethren in the Middle East and other parts of the world such as Pakistan and Nigeria. May the American, British, Canadian, and other allies have success in destroying ISIS.

Let us give thanks for the peaceful, midterm elections that took place with few reports of fraud. Pray for the newly elected, that they will have grace to help restore and strengthen biblical values and standards in our nation. 

This week, let us also honor our brave veterans who have valiantly served our nation, helping keep us free. Pray for all those serving presently in our armed forces and give thanks for their families. May angels continue to protect all those wearing the uniform of our armed forces.

Col. 2:15, "Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it."

Rom. 8:38-39, "For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."

Rev. 12:11, "And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death."

1 Timothy 2:1-4, "Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth." 

Ps. 91.
