Let’s Pray Everyday for the Persecuted Church in Iraq

All of us have heard the reports of the persecution and execution of Christians in Iraq. There has been pressure to convert to Islam, leave or die. Many have died and others have fled. Each day their lives are in danger with new threats and actions. We have people in our church whose families in Iraq are facing these challenges on a daily basis.

What can we do? PRAY. We must take the plight of our brothers and sisters in Iraq to the throne of God in prayer. Let’s pray for their protection, for the international community to respond, for God to mightily work in and through Iraqi believers, and for the church worldwide to recognize we are in a war against demonic and evil powers. We must stand together as the body of Christ.

May every daily news report from Iraq be our reminder to pray.
