Saw a program about them on TV last night. They are being terrorized.

One woman whose little boy was abducted had his head returned to her on a platter of rice.

I mourn with those poor Iraqi Christians and pray for them and their families. I pray for an end to the terror and pray that the terrorists will be stopped and converted. I also pray for healing and international support for the Christian families in Iraq living at risk. I pray that God will enable the Iraqi Christians to live without fear and will keep them safe from future attacks. Amen.

*Oh my gosh, this breaks my heart. How horrific! :frowning: I think we (well, I certiainly do) lose sight of sometimes, how ‘‘easy’’ it is to practice our faith here, with such freedom, in the United States, and in many parts of the world. :frowning: Praying for those persecuted Christians, that someday very soon, they will have the freedom we have to practice their faith without fear. Thank you for this sober reminder…I am grateful you shared this with us. *

We continue to persevere in prayer for our brothers and sisters in the persecuted Church wherever they are. Give them hope and comfort. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
