In Days 11-20

But the fruit of the Spirit is … kindness … – Galatians 5:22

Pray for forgiveness for any lack of kindness in your heart toward members of ISIS and others who have not yet experienced the mercy of Jesus Christ.

Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. – Ephesians 4:31-32

Pray that the rich mercy of God would be known among members of ISIS. Pray that they would learn of the heavenly kindness God showed them by sending His Son.

But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved—and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. – Ephesians 2:4-7

May God give ISIS members a love of kindness. Pray that they would become advocates, not of religiosity, but of the oppressed: the widow, the fatherless, the sojourner, and the poor. Pray that they would do away with plotting evil against others.

Thus says the Lord of hosts, “Render true judgments, show kindness and mercy to one another, do not oppress the widow, the fatherless, the sojourner, or the poor, and let none of you devise evil against another in your heart.” – Zechariah 7:9-10

Pray that members of ISIS would know the immeasurable riches of God’s grace in kindness and that it would lead them to repentance. Pray that this kindness would touch them to the core of their being and that they, too, would extend kindness freely to others.

Amira’s husband had been killed in the Syrian conflict. So had her father and her sister’s husband. So with five small children, the three widows fled for Jordan. But with no money for food, they were nearing desperation. Just as they began to wonder if God had forgotten them, they met Cassie, a Frontiers worker. Read how these women discovered the Lord’s kindness in The 3 Syrian Widows.
