The WEA continues to encourage focused and concerted prayer for Syria and all the people of Syria. The WEA has learnt that the churches in Syria have decided to hold a special day of united prayer on Saturday, May 11th, 2013: please consider joining our brothers and sisters in Christ as they pray. Millions of people are affected by this conflict; estimates are that 4.25m people are internally displaced in Syria, and 1.3m in Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey and Iraq: Many of them are cared for by Christians.

The WEA has received the following suggestions for intercessory prayer and commends them to Christians around the world.
