Having grown up in Iran, Marta Greenwood understands well the importance of prayer in supporting a healing outcome for the situation in Libya and other areas in the Near and Middle East where governments are being challenged. In this chat, she stresses the First Commandment's insistence that there is one God and the importance of accepting God as the only power and only law in one's own life--and in prayer about the turmoil in Libya, Tunisia, Egypt, and other countries. Marta says that our prayers, no matter how little they may seem in the scheme of things, "they count 'big time.' Never underestimate the power of your prayers."

Among the questions asked by site visitors: How can we prayerfully address the situation of the tens of thousands of refugees fleeing the conflict? Please address the fear associated with possible threats to the oil supply. How do you, Marta, pray for the world? What is most important for us to be praying about regarding world leaders and peoples so there can be progress and liberty? Regarding violence toward Christians in the Middle East, how can we pray to protect them?

We'd love to hear from you!
