These Muslim and Christian children are proving that despite differences, they can come together for one cause!
Next month, in Aleppo, Syria, two groups of people will come together in prayer in hopes of deliverance from the atrocities committed upon its citizens. This group is unlike what we imagine. You see, they are both Muslim and Christian children that will unite in prayer and plea with world leaders, to assist in ending their sufferings.
According to ChristianToday.com, there was a brief truce that collapsed, with bombings killing nearly 200 people on Friday and Saturday, with thousands unable to flee and in desperate need of provisions.
“But above all, they will pray,” Archbishop Marayati stated, in regards to the children’s future petition. He is the head of the Armenian Catholic church in Aleppo. He continued, “They will pray for all of their peers. And we trust in the fact that children’s prayer is more powerful than ours.”
“New blood will be shed if the powers behind the two warring parties do not decide to really put an end to this dirty war,” said the Archbishop, in regards to the battle that has been ongoing for 4 years.
I pray that God keeps these children safe from harm and that their courageous selflessness, will encourage others to take back their homeland. It can only be accomplished through prayer and fasting; but it can be met, with the help of God!

10 Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.
11 For we which live are always delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.
