Winter in War-Torn Syria
With Syria facing its seventh year of conflict, the humanitarian situation in the country continues to deteriorate. Caught in the middle of a war zone in central Syria, Rabeha was living a nightmare. Her brother had been killed and her mother lost her legs when the family’s home was destroyed. Rabeha’s father suffered a stroke that left him paralyzed. Unable to secure a job, Rabeha couldn’t afford food, medicine for her parents or heat for the winter. The family endured cold, hungry nights before they enrolled in a Presbyterian World Service & Development food aid project with Canadian Foodgrains Bank. Now that her family receives food baskets, Rabeha is saving money for other needs and was able to face the harsh winter with greater peace of mind.

Heavenly Father, nourish us with your word of Life and make us one with you in Love and Prayer. May we know your peace and love, removing distractions that take our gaze away from your glory. May we quiet the noise that pulls us from adoration from you and may we see your goodness and glory. We pray for those in need, especially for Cathy Kay, Dorothy Clow, Heather Ford, Louise Weeks, David MacIntyre, Eddy Dykerman,Wendell Nicholson, Gwen Henry, Aneila River- Watts, Irwin Campbell and Elwin Corbett. May the words of our mouths and the actions of our hands all bring Glory, Honour and Praise unto Christ. Amen
