The Refugee Crisis

The flood of refugees from Syria into Europe has multiple causes. But whatever they are, the pictures for followers of Jesus Christ are horrifying.

Praying for the refugees flocking from war-torn Syria to Europe right now.

Praying that wherever they end up, they will be welcomed by Christians who, in serving and welcoming these poor people, know that they really are serving their Lord (Matthew 25:31-46).

Praying too, that God will give wisdom and compassion to the leaders of the world in dealing with these people, the helpless victims of a barbarous regime and the rise of Isis.

Praying also for safety and help for the hundreds of thousands of Christians already displaced from Iraq. Praying for all Christians who face persecution and the threat and reality of murder and maiming for their faith in Christ in Muslim countries.
