Missions Moment: PRAYING FOR THE PERSECUTED CHURCH - (Top 10 con't)

#2 - IRAQ

There has been a church in Iraq for 2,000 years; today it's on the verge of extinction.
To remain in ISIS controlled territory as a Christian is effectively a death warrant.

PRAYER POINTS:

For continuing provision and strength for refugees and those who serve them.
For protection for women and girls - ISIS gives it's fighters permission to rape the women they capture.
For courage for believers from Muslim backgrounds to keep following Jesus, despite the pressure they may face from their families and communities.

SCRIPTURE - Psalm 34:17-19 (ESV)
