Russian Navy Dispatches Three Ships from Naval Base in Syria

In yet another disturbing development in the ongoing Syrian crisis, the Russian navy has dispatched at least three ships to their naval base in Tartus, Syria. Russia has a long history of supplying arms, equipment, training and even personnel to support the Syrian regime. They are doing everything possible to prop up this brutal dictatorship during the ongoing bloody civil war despite the rising death toll.

As I read this story this morning, my mind went back to the story of Elisha found in 2 Kings, chapter 6. Bands of Syrian soldiers were sent to take the prophet captive. Elisha prayed, and God blinded the eyes of the enemy and delivered His people. Elisha had great power in his praying, and you and I have great power as we pray together as part of the Jerusalem Prayer Team. Remember that no battle can be won in the physical realm until it is first fought and won in the spiritual realm.
