Now more than ever, followers of Jesus Christ in the Middle East need our prayers, encouragement and support. In recent days, churches in Israel and Iraq have been attacked by religious extremists. The seige of a church in Baghdad by radical Islamic terrorists leaving 58 dead and 67 injured received significant international media coverage. The firebombing of an Arab Christian church in Jerusalem — possibly by radical ultra-Orthodox Jewish terrorists – has received almost no media coverage. Yet our brothers and sisters in both places need us to intercede on their behalf, and to mobilize others believers to pray for them and to stand with them in their time of need. This is a key mission of The Joshua Fund, mobilizing Christians to bless Israel and her neighbors in the name of Jesus, according to Genesis 12:1-3.

  • Let us pray for the courage of believers in both countries
  • Let us pray for the healing and recovery of those wounded
  • Let us pray for the comfort of the families and friends who have lost loved ones
  • Let us pray for the pastors in both countries to have courage to stand for Jesus Christ amidst the persecution, and for the believers there to rejoice that they have been chosen by the Lord to suffer for His Name, as instructed in the Scriptures
  • Let us pray for the perpetrators to be brought to justice, but also that the Lord would open their eyes, that they would repent of their evil acts, and that they would come to faith in Jesus Christ
  • Let us pray that the good news of God’s great love, forgiveness and salvation through faith in Jesus Christ would continue to be proclaimed without shame or apology or fear at this critical time.
