Please pray for the persecuted Church, the remnant of believers in Syria who are in immediate and significant danger from jihadi elements present in Turkish forces advancing in Syria.
Specifically pray for Christian converts in the area of Kobane. Conversion is forbidden by Islam, and these Kurdish converts will be both isolated and exposed by the withdrawal of U.S. support in Syria.
Jihadis in the Turkish military attacked Christians in Aleppo, Christians in Afrin, and now if they can, they will attack, murder, and destroy or drive out Christians in northeast Syria, especially Kurdish Christian converts.
As reported by the Christian Post, the church pictured above was newly dedicated this month. It is protected by the same Assyrian Christian soldiers who fought side-by-side with US forces, Kurds, and Arabs against ISIS.
