Please pray for Iraqi Christians

Please pray for Iraqi Christians, who are experiencing a surge in persecution directed at them. Several reports tell of Christians being murdered in their homes; of believers fleeing to other cities or leaving Iraq altogether; of people receiving death threats; of Christians being forced to abandon school, work, or other activities. Earlier this month (December 2010), a 26-year-old man was gunned down in broad daylight without warning in Mosul by terrorists demanding items in his shop. Pray that the Lord would protect His people in Iraq from further attacks; that the international community will recognize its responsibilities to Iraq’s persecuted Christians and other minorities in Iraq and take urgent action to help them; and that Iraqi Church leaders will know how to advise those Christians who are trying to decide whether to leave or stay.
