 For Christians around the world, the road to Damascus is a symbol of transformation.  According to the Bible, the Jewish pharisee, Saul of Tarsus persecuted the followers of the Nazarene, Jesus.  One day, on the road to Damascus to persecute more followers, Saul was blinded by light, possibly heat lightning, and for the next three days, Saul was blind.  We presume that during those three days, Saul was instructed by God because he converted and became the evangelist Paul, that we know from the New Testament.

Long gone are those days of early Christianity.  Today, Christians only make up about 10% of Syria.  

We must pray for poor Syria, not only for the too many years of civil violence, extreme terrorists' organization, but also for natural disasters.
