31 May Respond
first a bit of
Now that you’ve spent a month praying and learning about the refugees, don’t stop there. It is time to respond. We challenge you to respond with your actions and your voice. Your voice can make a difference. Use it.
“When I heard of the injustices, something stirred in my heart and I knew I had to be a voice for those who cannot speak for themselves. Teach me, God, to love them as you love them.” –Leonna, a young Christian woman from Nigeria dedicated to serving refugees in Germany
“The doors of opportunity are already closing fast, but this is still a historic time to act. We need to continually acknowledge that refugees deserve our compassion, not our fear, and then we need to respond with love.” –Georgia, a volunteer from Seattle, WA
“Then Jesus came to them and said, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” –Matthew 28: 18-20
Pray and thank God that he has invited us to participate with Him in this crisis through prayer. Tell God you have faith that your prayers (and the collective prayers of thousands on The Syrian Circle) are making a difference. Ask God to help you grow in your prayer and faith life for the sake of Jesus being known among all people.
Thank you for your faithful prayers!
