Even though Christians have been present in Syria since the first century, Islam is now the main religion. Since the war broke out in 2011, Islamic extremist groups, previously oppressed by the government, have been able to operate openly. Many of these extremist and violent groups, such as the Islamic State, seek to remove Christianity from Syria.

Pray: For those Christians who still choose to stay in Syria, that the joy of the Lord will be their strength.
