A new chemical weapons investigation team has started work on identifying the culprits behind alleged attacks in Syria. Member states of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons agreed one year ago to give The Hague-based body new powers to assign blame for attacks. Syria has already blocked access to the chief of the so-called Identification and Investigation Team, while Moscow and Damascus have accused the Hague-based OPCW of becoming "politicised.” The team "has initiated its work to identify the perpetrators of the use of chemical weapons in the Syrian Arab Republic,” OPCW director-general Fernando Arias said. The team would be "identifying and reporting on all information potentially relevant to the origin of those chemical weapons" where their use has previously been identified by OPCW teams, he said.

Pray that the destructive plot of the enemy will be exposed.
Pray that the culprits will be booked (The Bible, Jeremiah 9:21).

While many tribal and Chinese Malaysians have become Christians, the Malay Muslims remain difficult to reach. It is illegal for Malays to convert to Christianity. Marriages between Malays and Christians are not legally recognized. Discrimination towards Malay Christians can be tangible in the work place, community and legal courts. One Christian ministry is supporting a safe house for Malay Christians who need to flee persecution for a time.

Pray for these Christians to be encouraged in their faith.
Pray that God will open up doors for them to be reconciled with family members.
Ask God to provide for their needs (The Bible, 2 Corinthians 9:8).
