The families of our men and women serving in Iraq and Afghanistan are in need of your prayers. It is our responsibility to stand in the gap for them through our intercession and acts of loving kindness. Our hearts go out to neary 4000 American families whose hearts have been broken with the knowledge that their son/daughter, father/mother, brother/sister, grandson/granddaughter will never return home. And there are still others who are waiting for news regarding soldiers who are missing in action.

Would you join us for a very special conference call tomorrow morning (11/17) for an interview with father who lost his son in Iraq? For details of this interview and our conference call number, please contact prayersurgenow@gmail.com.

Have you been praying for our troops & the people of Iraq?

Focus on the Family Radio This Week

Experts on post-traumatic stress in our military and the spread of global Islamic jihad were among the guests on this week’s Focus on the Family with Dr. James Dobson. Please consider listening to the members of our military and Chuck Colson on these highly critical issues.

The following programs are available for listening, purchase and free download (www.family.org):

11/5 & 11/6: Standing Strong in a Dark World (Parts 1 & 2)

Author Chuck Colson describes how Christians can have a greater influence on the culture as we apply Romans 12:21“Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.”

Part 1: Chuck Colson says when the church historically fulfilled its mission, the culture inevitably changed. So, what should Christians do today if they want to transform society? Colson, the founder of Prison Fellowship Ministries, describes why Christians should follow the example of 19th century abolitionist William Wilberforce. Look for next week’s DVD release of “Amazing Grace”, the major motion picture about how God use Wilberforce to end the British slave trade.

Part 2: "How can we stop the spread of a destructive worldview that advocates jihad ["holy war"] with the West and death for non-adherents?" The answer, says Colson, lies in Christianity, which provides the best answers to the four questions that define worldview: Where do we come from? Why is there suffering? Is there a solution to the suffering? And, what's my purpose in life?

11/7, 11/8 & 11/3: Post-Traumatic Stress in the Military

A panel describes how post-traumatic stress in the military affects families and how Christians can help support those who are suffering from post-traumatic stress. As our brave soldiers fight for freedom in Iraq and Afghanistan, they face the sobering knowledge that, any moment, they could be wounded or killed. They routinely witness bombings, bloodshed and the senseless killing of innocent civilians, including women and children. The emotional and psychological stress of combat can be far worse and last much longer than physical wounds. Soldiers attempting to readjust to civilian life often face a condition known as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Learn more about PTSD and how military families can find hope and healing. It's an important broadcast for adult listeners. "[PTSD] is a normal reaction to abnormal stress. When you go through gut-wrenching things that man should never see, it is understandable that the body reacts." - Major General Robert Dees

The distinguished panel members include:
Major General (Retired) Robert Dees is the Executive Director of Military Ministry for Campus Crusade for Christ International;
Dr. Loree Sutton is a psychiatrist and a colonel in the U.S. Army, currently serving as a commander at the Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center in Fort Hood, Texas.
Commander (Retired Navy SEALS) Mark Waddell is a vice president and the Director of Special Projects for the Humanitarian International Services Group.
