When most people think of Syria, they think of the devastation of war, levelled buildings, and masses of refugees. But Syria is home to historical cities that predate the broken buildings and refugees by millennia. In fact, its capital city, Damascus, is one of the oldest inhabited areas in the world. Syria's location on the fertile Mediterranean coast has historically made agriculture and tourism a critical part of its struggling economy. War, violence, and terrorism have shattered and decimated this nation. Hundreds of thousands have lost their lives. Millions have been forced from their homes, leading to a mass humanitarian crisis of historic proportions. War crimes, such as chemical warfare, have been reported on all sides, leading to unspeakable horrors among Syrian civilians. Capitalizing on Syria’s instability and chaos, IS has started a “war within a war” - taking control of huge areas across northern and eastern Syria. IS has brought nothing but terror and suffering to an already terrorized people. These complex conflicts and the resulting humanitarian crisis have led to one of the largest recently recorded refugee exoduses.

Praise Report
Praise God that He continues to draw Syrians to Himself bringing them out of the ashes of death into new life. Keeping the faith-filled New Testament Church of Antioch before them, many persecuted Syrian believers are rediscovering the zeal and faith of their fathers (The Bible, Acts 15:23).

Prayer Request
As the war keeps raging in Syria, support for basic necessities is still very much needed. Pray that God will restore peace and make an end to the fighting in Syria as all things are possible with Him (The Bible, Mark 10:27).
Pray for physical and emotional healing of those who were directly harmed by attacks.
Pray that God will heal their wounds and comfort them (The Bible, 2 Corinthians 1:3).

Call to Salvation
Pray for the suffering Syrians. Pray that in the depths of their suffering, they will come to Christ who knows the pain that they are experiencing and wants a relationship with them (The Bible, Luke 9:11).
