Pray for Iraq - facebook page

Iraq is known as the “cradle of civilization.” Modern Iraq occupies what was once ancient Mesopotamia. Yet today the world knows Iraq less as a memorial to its vibrant history and more as a bloody battleground. All solutions have failed - giving only brief periods of respite followed by continued sectarian violence and terrorism. The Shiite, Sunni and Kurdish people groups composing the majority of modern-day Iraq have been in conflict with each other for centuries. The Assyrian Church of the East, the Syrian Orthodox Church, the Syrian Catholic Church, the Chaldean Catholic Church and the Armenian Orthodox Church are all seriously affected by persecution in Iraq, especially from Islamic extremist movements and non-Christian leaders. They also face discrimination from government authorities. In central and southern Iraq, Christians often do not publicly display Christian symbols, such as a cross, as this can lead to harassment or discrimination at checkpoints, universities, government buildings and in workplaces.

Praise Report
Praise God that the extreme violence perpetrated by IS in recent years has led to revival, resulting in many Iraqis, including traditional Christians, seeking a saving faith in Christ and becoming bold witnesses (The Bible, Acts 22:15).

Prayer Request
Pray that the Iraqi Believers will courageously stand firm in their faith despite persecution and terror and losses in life (The Bible, 1 Corinthians 16:13).

Call to Salvation
Pray that God’s work of healing, provision and restoration will takes place leading to a stable democratic government and that the next generation of Christians in Iraq will find hope and security to remain in their country as salt and light (The Bible, Matthew 5:13).
