Prayer Requested

Dear Body of Christ:

Pray For ThemIn the last year specifically our dear brothers and sisters in Christ in the Middle East have been under consistent terror and threats to their lives as well as lives of all in their community.

It is with this in mind that we ask you to pray consistently for confusion in the enemies camp, as well as pray fervently for God’s protection for the millions that are being persecuted for being followers of Jesus Christ.

We encourage you to go to the following site to enlist your prayer support for them now, today June 29. Please go to Pray For Them today to show your support for them. Let’s pick up our support as the enemy ramps up their attacks to coincide with their religious holidays.

Let this be one of your prayers for the Middle East today: “Almighty God, you are a miracle worker. And I come to you in the mighty name of Jesus asking for a miracle in the Middle East.

Mobilize the hearts of thousands of people today to pray, asking that on July 2nd millions of Muslims will seek you on the Night of Power and discover the love and forgiveness found only in Jesus

Awaken our hearts with a passion for you, Jesus. That your name will be made famous in all the earth! In Jesus’ name, Amen.”

So here are the suggested actions that would be very much appreciated by all in the Middle East:

1. Go to Pray For Them.com and post a prayer.

2. Like the PrayForThemCom Facebook Page and share it with all your friends.

3. Follow@prayforthemcom on Twitter.

We are praying for 25,000 people to join us in this mighty prayer effort! Please go to the PrayForThem.Com site and post a prayer, Like the movement on FaceBook or follow on Twitter.

Thank You and God Bless!
