Prayers Matter

Minaret of the Umyyad Mosque, Damascus, Syria (2007)

When you watch the news and think you can’t do anything about the world around you, know that people in the midst of the crisis are grateful to know others are thinking about them and praying for them.  My friends in Damascus are living in hell right now, this is the post from one of them after today’s fighting in the capital:

Thank you all [for your prayers and messages].  It’s davistating and scary.  My dad doesn’t want to leave the house and we can’t leave him alone.  Now we can’t leave the house at all.  Out side is a mess .  So the best thing either to stay home or go down to the basement.  I don’t know what to do.  My heart is in my mouth.  I am trying to pray and sometimes I walk around the house can’t even sit.  BUT SOOO GRATEFUL TO YOUR PRAYERS
