An International Day of Prayer and Fasting for the Syrian Church will be held on Saturday, May 11th, 2013. Syrian churches from all denominations will be unified in seeking God for mercy on their country. They are asking Christians worldwide to join them by praying for divine protection of the Church in Syria.
In a country that is 90% Moslem, Syrian Christians suffer not only from the humanitarian and political crisis, but also from religious persecution. You can read more about this day of prayer and fasting and about the Syrian church.
Our family has never yet fasted for religious reasons, and I wouldn’t know how to go about it. Perhaps that ought to change. In the meantime, however, we will be praying for our Syrian brothers and sisters tomorrow.
Will you join us?
