Christians on the run in Iraq

We often make the mistake of thinking that countries like Iraq are thoroughly Islamic. A recent article by the New York Times sadly reveals the suffering of Iraqi Christians at the hands of intolerant Muslims. The Church of Jesus is present in Iraq but they need Christians around the world to stand with them in prayer. I Peter 5: 7-9

Pray that the forces of darkness seeking to silence the witness of Jesus in Iraq would not prevail.
Pray that pastors, their families and their congregants remain steadfast in the face of death.
Pray for the peace of Iraq and the growth of the church in that region
