Voice of the Persecuted asks that you will participate, share with many and take this appeal seriously as if you or your own family were suffering. It is time for the Body of Christ stand up, speak out and unite against all evil in this world. Jesus said that he who is in us is greater than he who is in the world. His power is greater than the power of the enemy. When there is a head-on conflict between the power of the enemy and the power of God, the power of the enemy will lose every time. It is time to recognize that we are the Church with the power that is rooted in Christ.

Aleppo (Agenzia Fides) – Hundreds of boys and girls in Aleppo, Christians and Muslims, will meet on October 6, to pray so that the spiral of death unleashed in recent days especially on their defenceless children stops in the battered city they live in, and throughout Syria. This is what Archbishop Boutros Marayati, at the head of Armenian Catholic archieparchy in Aleppo reports to Agenzia Fides. The initiative will primarily involve school children. They will also put their signatures and their fingerprints on an appeal to ask world rulers to put an end to the massacres especially towards children, who in all wars are the most vulnerable. “But above all, they will pray. They will pray for all of their peers. And we trust in the fact that children’s prayer is more powerful than ours”, added Archbishop Marayati.

The bombings and massacres of civilians in Aleppo have expressed, in a devastating manner, the fragile and partial truce declared less than two weeks ago. In this regard, Archbishop Marayati is able to provide first-hand information on what is happening in the Syrian metropolis: “On Wednesday – reports the Armenian Catholic Archbishop – the representatives of the government and the Syrian army convened a meeting to explain that soon an appeal would be spread to the civilian population settled in the neighborhoods under rebel control. The appeal warned that gates would be left open to allow the population to leave those areas, and head for areas considered safe, without fear of incurring in retaliation. In fact, many civilian families left those neighborhoods and were welcomed in areas controlled by the government army, confirming that the appeal had somehow arrived at its destination. For groups arriving, housing facilities were set up for the reception. But it was not a mass evacuation. Perhaps many cannot leave. And the appeal also contained an expiration date, and the ultimatum expires in coming days. 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”. (GV) (Agenzia Fides 24/09/2016)

    I do believe the sincere prayers of children especially move God’s heart. I pray that God will divinely keep his children out of the crossfire in Aleppo, and out of danger from ISIS.
