In less than a year's time, ISIS grew into a terrifying reality in the Middle East.

Thousands have been persecuted and martyred by this network of Islamic terrorists, and their numbers are increasing. It seems impossible to turn to the news without hearing of new atrocities committed by this violent organization. As ISIS continues to gain momentum and advance its territory, many Christians find themselves feeling powerless and afraid.

What can be done in the face of such evil?

In this timely, compelling book, Lorraine Marie Varela exposes the spirit behind ISIS and provides seven specific prayer strategies to effect real change in the Middle East.

Through true-life stories of supernatural intervention, you'll see how God is already at work in the midst of the violence in the Middle East--and you'll learn how to join His work through powerful, effective prayer.

Don't be afraid.

Partner with the purposes of God--and declare to ISIS that Love is coming after them.
