The persecuted church–Syria (Re-posted)

Exodus 25:31-32 (NKJV)
“You shall also make a lampstand of pure gold; the lampstand shall be of hammered work. Its shaft, its branches, its bowls, its ornamental knobs, and flowers shall be of one piece. And six branches shall come out of its sides: three branches of the lampstand out of one side, and three branches of the lampstand out of the other side.

Isaiah 11:1-2 (NKJV)
There shall come forth a Rod from the stem of Jesse,
And a Branch shall grow out of his roots.
The Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon Him,
The Spirit of wisdom and understanding,
The Spirit of counsel and might,
The Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord.

O Lord, we cry out for the church in Syria. May she be a light upon the hill.
Let the Spirit of the Lord indwell her and the Spirits of wisdom, understanding, counsel, might, knowledge, and the fear of the Lord flow from her. Just as the seven branches of the gold lampstand in the tabernacle illuminated the showbread, may the sevenfold Spirit of the Syrian church reveal Jesus, the Bread of Life. Amen.
