“For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.” Matthew 6:13 (NKJV)

Damascus, Syria

Damascus, the capital of Syria, was long renowned for its beauty and has been called the “Pearl of the East” and the “City of Jasmine.” It is still a major cultural center of the Levant and the Arab world.

Sadly, today large portions of the eastern and southern portions of the city have been destroyed by the civil war. Refugees from other parts of the country have come to Damascus, putting extreme strain on housing and other resources. With the disruption of many businesses and industries, unemployment and widespread poverty are high.

Bashar al-Assad is still in power, and the only true hope for the healing and transformation of Syria is the good news of Jesus. Thankfully, many Syrians report that the Messiah revealed Himself to them in dreams and visions while fleeing the country.

As conflict has diminished and stabilization has increased in the country under Assad’s oppressive control, Jesus-following Syrians have the opportunity to return to their homes and share with their people an unfading, imperishable pearl of great price.

Ways To Pray:

  • Pray for the end of violence and for Christ-exalting, multiplying house churches in the 31 languages of Damascus.
  • Pray for wisdom, courage, and supernatural protection for the Gospel SURGE teams working in the country to bring Jesus to the people.
  • Pray for refugees, the poor, and the broken to find hope and healing in Jesus’s name.
  • Pray for the Kingdom of God to advance through signs, wonders, and power in military, business, and government leaders.
