"Prayer needs no passport, visa, or work permit. There is no such thing as a 'closed country' as far as prayer is concerned...much of the history of mission could be written in terms of God moving in response to persistent prayer."
God is calling Christians not only to prayer, but also to move with Him through the neighborhoods of their towns, as well as along the sidewalks and paths of the world. Thank you for your willing heart to hear and heed His call to intercede for the world one step at a time.
Sadly, children bare the biggest brunt of war. Regardless of one’s political views, we firmly believe that we must do all that we can to support children and families in need of critical life-saving support. Until recently, Syria might not have been known to many, but with the current state of affairs, we definitely hear about it daily on the news. Let’s show the children of Syria that the international community cares. Every human life is valuable.
Since the beginning of the conflict on March 2011, 11.4 million Syrians are in need of humanitarian aid, over 140,000 have died, 6.5 million are internally displaced and over 2.4 million live as refugees live in neighboring countries. Daily, over 8,000 people become refugees.
The toll of the on-going conflict on Syria’s children is increasingly an issue of critical importance and priority. Syria’s children are being referred to as the “lost generation”. From the refugee populations in neighboring countries, over 50% are under the age of 18 and 75% are women and children. Shocking numbers show that three in four children has lost a loved one. One in three children has an injury. Over 3,000 schools have been destroyed and an estimated 90% of Syrian children do not attend school.
