Thank You for all of our blessings, great and small.
We come to You with an urgent request for Christians who are suffering in Iraq. Please protect and sustain Your beloved amid worsening violence. Thank You for the overcoming faith of Canon Andrew. Please protect him, give him wisdom and renew his strength. Please, Father, bring an end to the bloodshed in Iraq and an end to the fighting, which is mainly between Sunni militants and the Shia-dominated government.
We know there is a Great Plan to Your workings, please bring to us understanding. And peace. Please, Father, bring to us peace.
In the name of Jesus we pray; Your Will be done.
"Canon Andrew White, known as the 'Vicar of Baghdad', has asked for urgent prayer for the church in Iraq amid intense violence.
"With frequent bombings and shootings in cities such as Baghdad and Mosul, monthly death tolls have soared recently. January's toll of 1,000 dead was the highest for almost six years..."
