#5 - SYRIA
Christians are not only caught in the violence of the on-going war in Syria, but are specifically targeted by Islamic extremists for attack, abduction and murder.
For strength and protection for Christian leaders who are choosing to stay in Syria and be the light of Christ to the people despite the risks.
For provision for the thousands of displaced people who are simply too poor or infirm to leave the country.
For courage for Muslim-background believers - in some areas they face being rejected/or worse if they are discovered.
SCRIPTURE: Colossians 4:2-5
