How to pray for Syrian Christians

It can be difficult to pray for those that are far away from us, dealing with problems that we do not understand, living in places that we have no context for. In the following interview, Middle East expert Jonathan Andrews explains specifically how we can pray for the Syrian church in the midst of this horrific conflict and violence.

Andrews was with Middle East Concern for over 10 years. He is now an independent writer and researcher. His most recent book, Identity Crisis: Religious Registration in the Middle East explores an interesting facet of religious liberty in the Middle East.
