 Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life. He does not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life. – John 5:24

We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life. For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we shall certainly be united with him in a resurrection like his. We know that our old self was crucified with him in order that the body of sin might be brought to nothing, so that we would no longer be enslaved to sin. For one who has died has been set free from sin. Now if we have died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. We know that Christ being raised from the dead will never die again; death no longer has dominion over him. For the death he died he died to sin, once for all, but the life he lives he lives to God. So you also must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus.

Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal bodies, to make you obey their passions. Do not present your members to sin as instruments for unrighteousness, but present yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life, and your members to God as instruments for righteousness. – Romans 6:4-14

Deir ez-Zor is also a major province controlled by ISIS. Deir in Arabic means monastery. It has Christian heritage but unfortunately it is known as the place of the Armenian genocide. Currently it is known as a place of mass death, but let us pray that God would make it a place of life.

  1. Dear Father, as depressing as it is, Ecclesiastes 3:16 describes the world today: “I looked at everything that goes on under the sun and realized that in place of justice, wickedness prevails.

    In the Precious Name of Jesus, break down the wals of evil that are over Deir ez Zor.

I beseech thee, O YeHoVaH God of heaven, let now thine ear be attentive to the prayer of thy servants, who desire to fear thy Name: and prosper, that keepeth covenant and mercy for them that love Him and observe His commandments, judgments and statutes, feasts and sabbaths which we pray before thee now, day and night, for the children of IsraEL, thy servants, and confess our sins of which we have sinned against thee.

    Hear my cry, O God; attend to my prayer. From the end if the earth I will cry to you when my heart is overwhelmed. Lead me to the rock that is higher than I. For you have been a shelter for me, a strong tower from the enemy. I will abide in your tabernacle forever. I will trust in the shelter of your wings. For you, O God, have heard my vows; you have given me the heritage of those who fear your name.
    Please hear the cry of all the innocent blood that has been shed in this place. Please be a shelter for your people. Please save those whose hearts are bent on evil. Please help now, Lord. We pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.

  12. Oh Lord, 100 years ago it was my people, the Armenians being slaughtered in Deir ez-Zor, the end point during the death march. Now, it’s happening again to all Christian minorities in Syria, including Armenians. Once again this place is a mass grave. My heart breaks. I cry out to You to stop the killing. Open the eyes of the killers and bring them to saving knowledge of You.

  13. “For we wrestle not against flesh” but the spirit of murder and death, and deception. Father you have conquered death through your resurrection from the grave. We pray for death to sin and deception in those who have been misled to take the murder of the innocent as a sacrifice to their god. We come against the principalities of darkness that have made Dier their territory. Set the victims free in both the spirit and physical realms, In Jesus name.

  14. Dear Father, Elisha told his servant, “Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” The Syrians who had surrounded Elisha’s city to kill him were themselves surrounded by your chariots of fire. I believe that is still true today. Even though your people–the People of the Cross and your people Israel–are surrounded by isis and other terrorist nations, you are still greater. You are as present now as you were then, and even more so because Jesus has risen from the dead. Lord, Elisha prayed blindness on the Syrians, but we want to pray that you would open their eyes to see Jesus and his truth. Lead the armies of islam to you where they can be saved and fed at your great eternal feast when Jesus returns. Even so, come, Lord Jesus! Amen.

  15. Oh Lord, as an Armenian the name Deir ez-Zor sends shivers down my spine. I know the bones of my people, surely even my family, reside there. But You, Oh Lord, are the one who redeems. I ask You to redeem this place that has seen so much destruction. Bind the principalities that have controlled it for far too long. I ask You to change the hearts of ISIS. Transform them into men who will spread Your love. Thank You for what You will do.

  16. Dear Father, you have used nations as tools of judgment against other nations. When the iniquity of the Amorites was complete, you used the Israelites as your tool of judgment, according to Genesis 15:16 and Deuteronomy 9:4-5. There are so many thoughts in my head, Lord–are these terrorists part of your judgment on Western civilization for abandoning you? Or are you starting to bring your judgment against islam? We pray for repentance unto life for all of us, Father. There is none that doeth good, no, not one. Please let us fall into your hands and not into the hand of man because your mercies are very great. Lord, why should the nations say, “Where now is their God?” Help, for the godly man perishes. Please let your will be done today. Please give us the perspective to see what you’re doing and pray accordingly. Please, Lord. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

  17. Dear Father, we thank you for life and for new life available to all through Christ. Please deliver these terrorists and their victims from the power of death, both physical and eternal. We pray in Jesus’ name and for your glory. Amen.

  18. Father,
    We pray for the Christians in this area of Syria. This was once a place of prayer and dedication to You, Lord. Now satan is trying to destroy Your people again, 100 years after the previous genocide. Father, forgive us for our complacency and show us how to best serve our suffering brothers and sisters in Christ.
    Be glorified in Your people and strengthen us and prepare us for the persecution. But let us speak up to our representatives about this violence! Amen

  19. Dear Father, on Sunday we celebrated Jesus’ victory over death, hell, the grave, and satan himself. We declare that permanent victory now in this area that has been infested with murder and death. We speak the abundant life of Christ to every person in that geographical area. Thank you that Jesus is greater and his love is stronger than anything or anyone else. Thank you for the people you will save there even today. “Death is swallowed up in victory. ” (1 Cor. 15:54) We give you praise and honor and glory in Jesus’ name. Amen.

  20. The Armenian Genocide began April 24, 1915, 100 years ago this month. We pray that God will subdue and overthrow the principality of death and destruction that has controlled this are. We pray that God would liberate from the control of this principality all those who are in this region. May God touch each person who resides there and apply the Blood of Jesus to their hearts. Save their souls and let them become Godly soldiers of Christ. In Jesus’s Holy Name. Amen.
