I Prayed have prayed
LORD, give us courage to expose Islamism's brutality. As we put a face to these horrors, cause truth to burn in the listeners.

“How are we being antisemitic?”

That was the sarcastic retort of a Georgia high school student recently, when a teacher noted parental complaints of antisemitism in the school district.

Have you taken your place on the wall?


In view of the “pro-Palestine” protests engulfing university campuses across the country, it is important to recognize the real-world consequences of supporting Islamism-based hatred and wickedness. Enemies of truth are using pathos rooted in lies to brainwash millions. How much more powerfully might a pathos rooted in truth burn in the hearts of hearers?

Like that high school student, most young people do not recognize the connection between their pro-Palestine/Hamas activism and Jewish hatred. Nor do they recognize the connection between their Jewish hatred and the anti-Christ agenda. Nor do they recognize how the progression of all of these things connects with their personal faith, future safety, and eternity. And like that student, many others in the West (especially my Gen Z peers who are being used as a cover for the on-campus presence of paid professional agitators) refuse to acknowledge the core flaws within Islamic society, or the horrors that befall those minority populations the Islamic state considers enemies.

Meanwhile, leftist teachers and professors are only too willing to provoke and then even feed off their students’ ignorance, so that only the false narratives prevail. After decades of bad teaching, at least two generations are now infected with corrupted morals.

A Faithwire article reports on the plight of one a Roman Catholic family in Pakistan. According to the account: “Police officers in Pakistan are reportedly refusing to help a Catholic family who fell victim to an attack by armed Muslims.” Shahnaz Yousaf and members of her family were out harvesting wheat when a large group of Muslims toting guns and other weapons attacked and began beating them. The attackers returned later to steal the harvested food while the victims were away seeking medical treatment: ” ‘When we reached the police station and told them what had happened in our absence, the officer on duty refused to register our complaint and said that our plight will end only when we surrender to the demand of the Muslim landowners,’ [Shahnaz’s brother] Ashraf Yousaf told Christian Daily International–Morningstar News.”

This attack is just one more incident that follows years of harassment the Yousaf family has suffered at the hands of their landlords, not to mention the constant dismissals of law enforcement officers. Such conditions are commonplace in Pakistan and other Muslim-majority nations.

According to an Open Doors report: “Pakistan’s notorious blasphemy laws are often used to target minority groups, but Christians are disproportionately affected. Indeed, roughly a quarter of all blasphemy accusations target Christians, who only make up 1.8% of the population.”

Experiences like those of the Yousaf family make clear that Islamism is the spirit behind the October 7 massacres in Israel. Such stories should be recounted worldwide, even as prayer for families like the Yousafs must continue.

Are there any young people in your sphere of influence with whom you could share accounts of Islamism’s harmful effects? Will you commit to doing so daily, as a counter to Satan’s false narratives?

Pray against the violent presence of Islamism in our world, and ask the Lord to bring gospel light.

Question: did Rev Chaplain Barry Black pray for the families of the victims in Israel (both murdered and perhaps still in captivity) on October 7, 2023, just as he did for the families in Iran who were mourning after the deaths of the President of Iran and others in the helicopter crash?

Jesus, You are so amazing! You do all things well. You cause what the enemy means for evil to unleash Your goodness. I want to lift up that little boy in the picture and ask for a miracle in his life.

I am coming to You boldly as You commanded. My request is that this boy in the becomes godly man who submits himself to You and leads multitudes to the LORD Jesus Christ – from many nations. Cause him to lead his own people to You. May he be a Mighty warrior in the Sprit as he prays and proclaims “Your kingdom come. Your will be done.” I pray that he loves you like David did! Use what satan means for evil, to bring about much good.
Your kingdom, In Jesus name! Amen.

The mindless stupidity of pro-Hamas “protestors” is only matched by their ignorance of any knowledge about the Mideast. The Jews had a 2500 year history in Israel until they were evicted by
the Roman “colonizers”. There was never a state of Palestine…there were various peoples throughout
the area until the Mideast
was controlled by the
Ottoman Empire until it was defeated in World War I. The Turks had allowed various Arab squatters to move in but they were never a nation or a cohesive tribal entity. They’re lived with tension among the Jews (and even cooperated with Himmler during WE II to try and set up Arab run death camps to slaughter as many Jews as possible. In 1948 the UN proposed a 2 state solution giving the prize, East Jerusalem, to the Arabs. The Jews accepted, the Arabs of course refused and nearly 80 years of warfare has ensued as 10,000,000 Jews regularly defeat well over 15 that number of Arabs (which should settle which God or god is stronger…Yaweh or
the Arab desert moon
“god Allah). Israel belongs to Israel, in fact will eventually be much larger than the original UN offer.
This is a tribal war and pampered college kids should know they have nothing to offer. Christ, not
some satanic Mahdi will
rule in Jerusalem and Islam
WILL be destroyed once
and for all.with the
destruction of the coming antichrist due to his betrayal of the Jews. because he is possessed
by satan. As for the “Palestinian” arabs, Egypt and Jordan want no part of them because the majority
supports the Hamas
cowardly butchers of
children and are nothing
but trouble. The problem is that islam is an evil lie. It hides its true face until gaining political power at which time it throws off the veil
And begins the slaughter of all who will not bow to their demonic sharia law. So support, these monsters fools, and find out how good eveything was that
you rejected. And lost.

Father, I pray for the people of Palestine. Strengthen the Christians and provide for them. Encourage them to know that you are with them. Remind us daily to pray for our suffering brothers and sisters in the Lord to be encouraged; praying as if we were suffering with them.

    Darlene, I was reminded of “The Prayer” reading yours…

    “Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.”

    “…praying as if we were suffering with them.” Amen

Numbers 23:19 God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent; Has He said, and will He not do it? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?

John 14:14,15, 27 If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it. “If you love Me, you will keep My commands. Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Your heart must not be troubled or fearful.”

Dear Lord and God Almighty, You are El Emet, God of Truth. You are firm, reliable, and trustworthy. When You speak, it is done. There is nothing too great for You to bring down and nothing too small for You to raise up. My prayers are small but they are offered to You, the Great God, the Father of Jesus Christ, my Savior. They are offered to You with Holy Spirit power. I pray You will speak a word into every deceived heart? I belive that’s all it takes Lord. With a word, You separated the light from the darkness, will You do this again? I ask this in the Name of Jesus Christ who says His peace is with us. He tells us not to be troubled or fearful. He says “If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it.” I love You Lord. Amen
