MIDDLE EAST

Continue to pray for the end of the Syrian conflict, as fighting escalates and prevents humanitarian aid from entering cities in need. According to NBC news, the city of Aleppo has become the focal point of Syria’s civil war, a war which has been on-going for the past five years and responsible for at least 470,000 deaths. There are many as 275,000 people caught in the middle of the city, which is divided between government and rebel forces, trapped without access to food, water, shelter and medicine. Pray that aid would be received quickly, for the vulnerable and displaced, and for peace in the nation.
