The Iraqi Cabinet approved a law to mark Christmas Day, December 25, as an official holiday across the country. The Cabinet voted on an amendment to the national holidays law in the country that Christmas Day is a holiday for all Iraqis, and not only for the Christian community. There were about 1.4 million Christians in the country. Their numbers have dwindled to roughly 300,000 after hundreds of thousands fled the country following violence and attacks by various armed groups over the years. Pray that the people will realize the need of their life Savior and commit to Him. Pray that the specialization of the day will increase faith in the Believers (The Bible, Psalm 118:24).
