TOPSHOTS-EGYPT-LIBYA-UNREST-CHRISTIANS-IS

By Pastor Glem Melo

Relatives and friends of Coptic Christians beheaded by ISIS terrorists mourn upon hearing the news on February 16, 2015. I mourn with them. I am sure that you do, too.

EGYPT-LIBYA-UNREST-CHRISTIANS-ISLet us all remember to pray for them and the work of the gospel in the Middle East.

“O God, the creator and preserver of all mankind, we humbly beseech You for all sorts and conditions of men; that You would be pleased to make Your ways known unto them, Your saving work unto all nations. More especially we pray for Your holy Church universal; that it may be so guided and governed by Your good Spirit, that all who profess and call themselves Christians may be led into the way of truth, and hold the faith in unity of spirit, in the bond of peace, and in righteousness of life. Finally, we commend to Your fatherly goodness all those who are in any ways afflicted or distressed, in mind, body, or estate; [especially those for whom our prayers are desired]; that it may please You to comfort and relieve them according to their several needs, giving them patience under their sufferings, and a happy issue out of all their afflictions. And this we beg for Jesus Christ’s sake. Amen.” – Book of Common Prayer

About Glem Melo

I am a believer and follower of Christ, happily married, and have 3 wonderful kids. I am the founder and CEO of Open Eyes Mission, under the care of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) Chicago Metro Presbytery, pastoral intern at Faith Church in Dyer, Indiana, and studying Master of Divinity at Mid-America Reformed Seminary. The Bible teaches that God is real, man is sinful, hell is real, and Jesus is our only hope of salvation. I believe these truths with all of my heart, and I hope to help others learn of them as well. "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life." (John 3:16) May God give you grace and peace.
