Prayer Resources for the Middle East

The prayerfulness and boldness of our Christian friends in the Middle East is an inspirational example to us as they work and witness through the present crises. This is a most significant moment for us to stand with them in prayer to let them know they are not alone.

People outside the Middle East should be praying. Here are five suggestions.

Pray for:

  • Christians under pressure
  • refugees and displaced people
  • extremists
  • governments
  • Christian workers in the region.

The best thing people outside the Middle East can do is pray.

  • pray in church services
  • give out headlines for special and regular prayer meetings and events
  • resource home groups and support groups for people working internationally
  • pray personally

MECO’s quarterly magazine has more information and prayer points.

National Offices can tell you of existing prayer groups or advise how one can be started.

MECO is partnering with SIM UK and three other agencies, Interserve, ECM and WEC to stimulate prayer for Syrian refugees: those who are refugees in Syria itself, those who have fled to receiving countries bordering Syria,Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq, Turkey and Egypt who are either in camps or living in the community, and of course those on the move across Europe.The 7 Days of Prayer resources can be used as a personal devotional plan, in a church service or a special prayer meeting. There are no set dates, so please us them regularly as best suits your situation.
