Syria (MNN) — The nightmare is deepening as reports confirm the worst-case scenario: ISIS is killing off its kidnapped Christians, one-by-one.

At least 15 of the 300+ hostages have been shot or beheaded, and more executions are allegedly on the way. Catholic news source “Crux” cites on-the-ground sources, saying a mosque in Syria had been inviting Muslims to “a mass killing of infidels.”

“All you hear are the horror stories,” notes Mike Dworak of E3 Partners Ministry, “but God is moving. God is moving.

“I’m sure you guys have heard the quote before, ‘The blood of the martyrs is the seed of the Church’ — that’s a hard thing for us to hear, especially in light of this,” Dworak admits.

PRAYER is God’s weapon, NOT for destruction but for Salvation! 

So, how will YOU respond?

We’re praying for the persecutors, along with the persecuted — that God would be glorified,” he explains.

“We don’t know exactly what’s going to happen, but we do know that prayer works.”

The growth of God’s Kingdom in the Middle East is proof of that, he says. More Muslims have come to faith in Christ during the last 10 years than during Islam’s 14 centuries of existence.

The work of missions is prayer,” a Nigerian pastor once told Dworak.

“We can strategize all day long, but the real work of missions is prayer…. We will see God do things that we can’t even imagine.”

So, how will YOU respond?
