How to Pray

Lebanon’s government allows its citizens freedom of worship; however, in outlying areas, Islamic extremist groups continue to persecute Christians. Over 1 million Syrian refugees have found safety within its borders, creating unique opportunities for the spread of the gospel.

01
Pray for boldness among Lebanese Christians to share their faith with Syrian refugees.
02
Pray for wisdom and resources for Christian organizations as they engage in outreach opportunities in refugee camps.
03
Pray for protection of Christ-followers living in persecution at the hands of their Muslim familiy and community members.

Unreached people groups live in areas where Christ is unknown and there is little to no local church presence.
