this came by email today, please see about the Christians in Damascus–telling others about Jesus rising.
and prayer requests for them:
“A new al-Qaeda-led jihadist coalition, Hay’at Tahrir al Sham, recently perpetrated several devastating attacks deep inside the ancient city of Damascus. On March 19th, the jihadist group launched a massive military assault just two kilometres from the walls of the Old City, having entered the area through tunnels. While they were eventually driven back, it is the closest the militants have come to the city centre.
In recent years, the population of Damascus has swelled from less than two million to well over four million as Syrians, including hundreds of thousands of Christians, have sought sanctuary inside the city’s security cordon. The Maronite Archbishop of Damascus, Samir Nassar, writes of “a very bitter Lent,” while proclaiming the Resurrected Christ and encouraging the faithful to not give up.
Ask the Lord to intervene in the Middle East, bringing protection and provision to His suffering people in Syria — including those who have been forced to leave their homes while fleeing danger. Pray that these steadfast followers will be strengthened and encouraged to continue living wholeheartedly for Him. In spite of the political unrest, may they become even stronger spiritually, so that through their Christian witness many others will seek and find the one true God. Ask Him to grant wisdom to the church leaders, equipping them to minister effectively during these perilous times. Additionally, intercede for all who are opposing God and His people so that they, too, will personally come to know Jesus as Risen Saviour and Lord.”

Judah, you are he whom your brothers shall praise: your hand shall be in the neck of your enemies; your father's children shall bow down before you. Judah is a lion's whelp: from the prey, my son, you are gone up: he stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as an old lion; who shall rouse him up? The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and to him shall the gathering of the people be. Gen 49

Yes, Abba, agreeing that You would show Yourself strong on behalf of our brothers and sisters in Syria who are suffering tonight. Rise up o Judge of the earth and pour out Your mercy and grace this day in fresh and supernatural ways. Send forth Your ministering angels to help those in Syria who are inheriting Your salvation. In Yeshua’s Name we pray.
John 14:1-3 “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also."March 30, 2017 at 10:24 pm #130059
Regina, the persecution of our family in Christ in these countries is the most heartbreaking for me. Praying God speed blessings of strength and peace and in Jesus’s name protect them from harm.
Also praying for our President of the US for guidance and wisdom to fight this most evil enemy.
