Prayer Needed: There is a Church in Syria

There have been Christians in Syria since Biblical times, and today the country is home to a flourishing Christian population of 2.3 million. Hundreds of thousands of Christian refugees from Iraq have also escaped there from anti-Christian violence and cruelty in their homeland.

Until last year Syria was the one of the easiest places in the Arab world to be a Christian. The churches could practise their faith without much interference, and they were respected by the Muslim majority and even by the government.

But with the Arab Spring their conditions changed -- very much for the worse...

Please pray for our brothers & sisters in Syria.
