An explosion in Beirut- Lebanon rocked Sassine Square-Ashrafieh due to an explosive device placed in a bombed car near Farah library, 200 meters away from Kataeb division leading to the death of 8 persons and 100 others injured according to the Red Cross.

and seven other people dead and 78 people wounded, in the first such attack in the Lebanese capital since 2008.
Your Brother in Christ

Dear Prayer Partner,
Your prayers began showing their immediate effect as we gathered for the 23rd day of Prayer for the Arab World & USA.
Saturday April 28, 2012, was a momentous day. Crowds began slowly but surely filling up the very large Sutherland Auditorium of Biola University, till it became fully packed by the second session. Choirs led us into a heavenly worship. Reports of the Lord's work in the Arab World & US, stirred us into a standing detailed prayer session for every country. Then more heavenly choirs lifted us up, along with a God glorifying testimony
The second session, brought continued joy, and an unusual presence of the Lord with a touching worship by Bro Ayman Kafrouny, and a lively message by Michel Abbas.
Every Prayer Request sheet was taken from the book tables. Several decisions for Christ were made. Strong commitments to continue in prayer were taken. The dinner in the end was a blessing.
This last week-end,of April 2012, many churches, in several countries, were participating in praying with us for the Arab World & the USA . No wonder Heaven came down, hearts were lifted, the Lord's vivid presence was felt, and our love for Him was magnified. Our experience was that of the Psalmist in psalm 116:1 " I love the Lord, because He hears my voice and my supplications."
Let us continue the prayer momentum, expecting continued showers of blessings throughout the Arab world and the USA, for the glory of God & our Savior Jesus Christ.
In these difficult days, God has prepared for us the best resource, Prayer.
"Prayer makes the darkest cloud withdraw,
Prayer mounts the ladder Jacob saw,
Gives exercise to faith and love,
Brings every blessing from above."
On behalf of every child of God, present or future, in the Arab World & USA, thank you. Thank you for your continued stand with us. And to God alone be all the Glory, in Christ.
