Chained by an Unhealthy Fear

[229] prayers in [18] nations have been posted for Middle Eastern Believers.

Although the Middle East is predominantly Muslim, a number of churches operate openly in countries like Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon and Syria. One Middle Eastern Christian leader believes these churches have too long been operating in a spirit of fear. “The main issue in the Christian church … is the unhealthy fear among both Christian background believers and Muslim background believers.” This leader asks people to pray for believers in the region to overcome their sense of fear for the sake of the gospel, no matter the cost.

  • Father God, You know that it is easy even for the most faithful of Your people to fear. This world is not our home. Please let Your Spirit of love, power, and a sound-mind reign over the believers in Muslim nations. Help them to see JESUS. Please bless them and make a way for them to meet and encourage each other as many more come to Christ.

  • Lord, Your Word says that You have not given us a spirit of fear, so we bind that fear in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and tell it to be gone from believers everywhere. Instead we ask that You fill Your people with Power Love and a sound mind, especially in these areas in the middle east where they face so much violence. Give them Your Joy, Lord!
