Prayer for Refugee Ministries

[163] prayers in [10] nations have been posted for Syrian refugees.

Lebanese church leaders request prayers as they minister to refugees. More than 1 million Syrian refugees have entered the country since 2012, increasing Lebanon’s population by nearly one-fourth. Despite hardship, many evangelical churches in Lebanon not only welcomed but also cared for Christian and Muslim refugees with limited resources and few rights in the country. One refugee woman described how the kindness of a local church changed her life: “I stopped wearing the veil and went to church to get the food parcel to help my family. They gave it to me regardless of who I am or what I wear. I discovered that they are loving people, not as our religious leaders told us about Christians.” She added, “At first, I thought, ‘This is not for me,’ but after coming to church for a while, I started to feel peaceful. Something changed in me that I cannot describe. I feel the peace, the joy of worship. … This is the work of our Lord, Jesus.”
