TURKEY & SYRIA CRISIS
SOME REALLY HELPFUL FOCUS POINTS FOR PRAYER BY PETE GREIG
So how (really) do I #prayforTurkey and #PrayforSyria? We know that devastation has come to these two great Bible lands, thousands have died, and it’s natural to feel helpless - wanting to pray but not knowing how. That’s why I find it helpful to focus my prayers on 4x “P’s” -
(1) PEOPLE affected -
Comfort for those suddenly grieving the tragic loss of loved ones, those who’ve lost homes, those injured and scared.
(2) PEACEMAKERS -
Resilience and resource for NGO’s, frontline workers, medics, search and rescue teams etc.
(3) POLITICIANS -
Wisdom to co-operate & communicate well, making good and speedy decisions for those worst afflicted.
(4) PASTORS -
Strength as they process their own trauma whilst also seeking to bind up broken hearts, caring for the poor, arranging funerals, and preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ.
