Join us in daily prayer
Prayer for today:
Today is the day on which Armenians mark the anniversary of the terrible genocide, extended over many years, which peaked in 1915. Millions of Armenian, Assyrian, Greek and Syriac Christians were massacred or died from hunger or hardship as they were forced to trek across the Middle East. Many settled in Syria, where they were welcomed and protected. But today the Christian presence in the region is threatened again, firstly because of violence by Islamic State (IS) and similar groups and secondly because of the anti-Christian hostility amongst local Muslims which IS has created and left as a legacy, even after IS has been defeated militarily.
