The Syrian refugee crisis shows no sign of ending, but prayer can make a huge difference in resolving it.
Around 11 million people – more than half the population of Syria – have been displaced by the civil war, each of them left traumatised and vulnerable by their ordeal. Along with practical demonstrations of the love of Christ, they need our prayers.
Compelled by Jesus’ love for these displaced people, Serving in Mission has produced , a tool to help Christians pray in an informed way. WEC is delighted to be partnering with SIM on this resource.
Steve Smith, SIM UK director, says: ‘We are joining together to call for concerted prayer for this crisis. Away from the media headlines, churches across Europe have a key part to play in loving their neighbourhood refugees during the approaching winter. We must stand together with them in Christ’s mission.’
The resource can be downloaded from here. It can be used at any time, by individuals, prayer groups and churches.
