Syria (MNN) — A prayer request from Syria sent out by E3 Partners reveals disturbing news: ISIS is attacking another village in its unrelenting pursuit of Christians.

The urgent prayer request from “Amir” appears on e3 Partners 8thirty8 Facebook page.

“Peace to you in Jesus’ name. Please pray for our brothers and sisters. ISIS today kidnapped 90 Christians from one village, and now they are trying to enter another village to take more Christians…Please, please we have ministry there! We have brothers and sisters there! ISIS has started to kidnap and kill the Christians in that area. We have very bad situation now as a Christian. We have nothing to do [but] pray and ask you to pray with us. Yes, we need your prayers with us and our families in Syria. God be with you.”

Voice of the Martyrs USA echoes the urgent need for prayer.

“In light of the kidnapping of dozens of Christians yesterday in Syria, we received an e-mail from a Syrian Christian leader giving specific ways to pray.

Will you join our Syrian brothers and sisters in lifting up the requests he shared?

  1. Pray that the Lord will encourage Christians in Syria so they can be a living testimony, in the midst of war, to others around them.
  2. Pray for God’s protection of the Christian community in Syria.
  3. Pray that young Christian men will turn to God and put their hope in Jesus.
  4. Pray for children and women who are being taking hostage by IS.
  5. Finally, pray for peace in Syria.
