The Middle East, that teeming region at the center of history, continues to draw the eyes of the world by violence, conflict, and tension. Since the beginning of the Syrian civil war four and a half years ago, Christian Aid Ministries has been deeply involved in bringing aid and comfort to refugees from both Syria and Iraq. Millions of people have been forced from their homes and are in desperate need of basic supplies.

Flimsy tents hardly keep out the bitter wind of winter. Bare concrete floors make cold beds. Dry bread crusts do not fill the hungry stomachs of growing children.

Because of our generous supporters, we have been able to distribute monthly food parcels, mattresses, clothing, and other aid to these desperate people.

But the conflict in the Middle East will not be soothed by food, medicine, and warm clothes. Only God can bring resolution and peace to the hostile hearts that provoke violence and hatred in Iraq, Syria, Israel, and other Middle Eastern countries.

Please join us in fervent prayer for peace in the Middle East. Pray for our staff stationed in various countries, that God would grant safety, wisdom, and courage to answer hatred with love.

“Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.” James 1:27
