SHBC Mission Outreach of the Week:
World Vision & The Syrian Refugees
Please join us as we intercede for these oppressed and displaced peoples…. Thanks!!
- Praise for Gospel based servants on the front lines like World Vision!
- Praise that… “everything is in subjection under His feet. Now in putting everything in subjection to Him, He left nothing outside His control. At present, we do not yet see everything in subjection to Him.” [Heb. 2:8]
- Let us Understand: Over 350,000 lives have been lost since the conflict began in 2011; 30,000 people report trauma-induced injuries every month & homes and businesses are being destroyed in the violence. Thus, we invite God to send help to those in conflict and come to a peaceful solution, such that civilians may resume their daily lives. God can “make wars cease to the ends of the earth.” [Psalm 46:9]
- In our helplessness may European government leaders come to compassionate solutions for refugees in these dire circumstances. Lord - open our ears to what Your Spirit is saying about our personal involvement in helping meet the overwhelming needs of refugee children and families.
- We lift our brothers and sisters in Christ living in this region. May they be strengthened with power through the Spirit. And help them to endure and remain faithful to follow, knowing that nothing can separate them from God’s love! “that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in your inner being” [Eph. 3:16]
- Knowing Jesus loves children & each Syrian child is precious to God: May He protect their bodies from dangerous diseases, bring healing to those already sick, hedge children from predatory adults who are looking to harm or profit from them, bring loving adults to watch and nurture them as they strive to survive the harsh realities in which they live. “but Jesus said, “Let the little children come to Me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.” [Matt. 19:14]
