Interceding on behalf of the persecuted
Tuesday, Feb. 24, 2015 — Like most, I have been appalled at the activities taking place in the Middle East at the hands of men operating under the banner of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.
I have not watched any of the videos of the beheadings that have taken place or of those burned alive. My imagination is sufficient to stir my heart and compel me to search for ways I might be of help.
My first reaction was to turn to prayer on behalf of the people who live in this region and I still regularly intercede for them in prayer. In prayer, I have actively been seeking ways I might help.
