Several governments in the Middle East are experiencing extreme instability in light of civil unrest, ungodly leadership, terrorism, and the movement of millions of displaced peoples. God wants peace to reign in these nations.
Pray for unstable governments and their leaders, that they would seek to obey the Lord and His commands. Pray that leaders would be saved and that they would be awakened to the knowledge of truth in Jesus Christ.
Pray for Syria, Iraq, Yemen, and other countries in the Middle East, that their leaders would submit to the authority of Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace. Pray they would seek only His honor and His will. Pray that these countries would know the peace of which there is no end, and that they would be ruled with justice and righteousness.
Pray that citizens in unstable countries would humble themselves before the Lord, seek His face, and turn from their wicked ways. Pray for a spirit of humility and repentance, and ask God to bring His healing to their nations. Ask Him to intervene with stability and godly order.
Three million Syrians have fled across borders as their government wreaks havoc on their cities. In Deraa, near the border with Jordan, the Syrian military blew up every building, block by block, as residents fled into Jordan.
We are naturally appalled that a government would act so horrifically. But may we be ruled first by compassion to demonstrate the love of One who rules with peace and justice. That compassion is what compels field workers to give up comfort and safety to love refugees. Read more in the Syrian Refugee Crisis Update.
