Dear praying friends,
On the first day of Ramadan one year ago, the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham, ISIS, officially began its campaign of terror. The atrocities they have committed, primarily against followers of the Lord Jesus Christ, have dominated news reports. Many in the Middle East expect the group to escalate violence during Ramadan, June 17 – July 17, 2015, in celebration of their one-year anniversary.
This morning, the 2015 class of Dallas GPA delegates from 26 different countries gathered around Pastor AA, their brother from Syria, to cry out to the Lord about the imminent threat. Dr. Richard wishes to ask all of us, also, to pray urgently and fervently. Please pray
- That God will give His people the strength to endure and be at peace.
- That those being persecuted will deepen in faith and love, and be glorious witnesses of the Lord Jesus Christ.
- For God’s miraculous deliverance
- Of the persecuted from earthly evil, for the glory of His name.
- Of the persecutors, from heart evil, that they may be transformed to glorify Jesus’ name.
