Prayer requests containing the term “house”:
urgent prayer for martyrs in Iraq

September 27, 2014

A friend from Ohio just got a text message from her brother asking her to shower him and his parish in prayer. He is part of a mission team and ISIS has taken over the town they are in today. He said ISIS is systematically going house to house to all the Christians and asking the children to denounce Jesus. He said so far not one child has. And so far all have consequently been killed. But not the parents. The UN has withdrawn and the missionaries on their own. They are determined to stick it out for the sake of the families - even if it means their own deaths. He is very afraid, has no idea how to even begin ministering to these families who have had seen their children martyred. Yet he says he knows God has called him for some reason to be his voice and hands at this place at this time. He is begging prayers for his courage. These brave parents instilled such a fervent faith in their children, that they chose martyrdom. Later we received the following text message from Sean Malone who leads Crisis Relief International (CRI). "We lost the city of Queragosh (Qaraqosh). It fell to ISIS and they are beheading children systematically. This is the city we have been smuggling food too. ISIS has pushed back Peshmerga (Kurdish forces) and is within 10 minutes of where our CRI team is working. Thousands more fled into the city of Erbil last night. The UN evacuated it's staff in Erbil. Our team is unmoved and will stay. Prayer cover needed!" Please pray for deliverance of the people of Northern Iraq from the terrible advancement of ISIS, and its extreme Islamic goals to massacre all Christians in the region.
