From the body of Christ in Turkey, to our holy and faithful brothers and sisters in Christ around the world, grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. We are writing to you from Turkey - from the land of Noah, of Abraham, of Paul, of Mt. Ararat and Harran, of Antioch, Ephesus, Galatia and the Seven Churches of Revelation...... Yet today in our land of 72 million, which is 99.8% Muslim, the size of Christ's flock is only a handful. We are writing to ask, indeed to plead for your prayers.
As Turkish Christians we love our country very much. Pray for God's will to be done, and for His Kingdom to come! Pray that the Lord's hand will be with us and a great number of people will believe and turn to the Lord.
We, the church in Turkey, have invited the worldwide church to pray for the land and the church of Turkey this day, April 18. We ask you at your church to pray for us, joining the prayers of millions around the globe. April 18 is when back in 2007 three of brothers were murdered brutally for their faith, the first martyrs of the modern Turkish church.
We are praying for you, and asking God to fill you with the knowledge of His will through all spiritual wisdom and understanding and we beg you brothers .
Pray for us! The God of peace be with you all. Amen.
2 Corinthians 1: 11 "You also must help us by prayer, so that many will give thanks on our behalf for the blessing granted us through the prayers of many.
On behalf of the body of Christ in Turkey
