Convert Dies in an Eritrean Dungeon

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile.” Romans 1:16

Iraq

Sectarian violence caused tens of thousands of Christians to leave the country in 2011. Christians feel that the government fails to protect them, with individuals being threatened, robbed, raped or kidnapped and churches being bombed. Iraq’s constitution says each individual has freedom of thought, conscience and belief, but there is no article on changing one’s religion and Islamic law forbids conversion of Muslims to other religions. In August, at least four churches were targeted by bomb attacks in Kirkuk. The situation in Kurdistan, for a long time considered a safe haven for Christians, has deteriorated due to Islamic extremism.
Pray:
  • For the many Christian refugees who have been displaced from their homes by religious violence
  • For wise leadership and government to bring Christians justice and protection from terrorist groups
  • For Open Doors workers training trauma counsellors to help children and families affected by persecution.

  1. Prayers of Salvation for Believers in Christ with Divine Protection and Deliverance through and during persecution and oppression and that they do not deny the Salvation in His Name. May the Light of the Truth penetrate this region with the Glorious Gospel of Jesus Christ, that it may yield a great Harvest of Souls for salvation in Christ. May the Spirit of the Lord, and the God of All Comfort be with them in Him in this region of the world that the Refuge in His Name be known among the nations.
    • If any two agree on anything in His name he will do it for us. I agree with this prayer by the authority of the name of Yeshua our saviour. Now let it be so.
      • Father, Worthy God, I praise You for sparing lives. I pray for the church in Iraq to stand, for the persecuted to find protection and encouragement through the Spirit at work in fellow believers. I pray for strength and comfort for fathers, mothers, and children. Keep the Word in their hearts. Thank you, Almighty God.
  2. Dearest Father, thank-You that there have been no casualties from these recent church bombings. Please work in the hearts of the terrorists. I ask that their eyes would be opened and that they would see Jesus. Please give the government officials wisdom and boldness to protect the Christians. I pray that they would have justice. For our brothers and sisters who have fled Iraq in fear, dear Lord, please protect them, provide for their every need, fill their hearts with Your peace. Let them know we are praying for them. Thank-You that Open Doors is training trauma counsellors to help those affected by persecution. Please give them wisdom, strength and protection. Please pour out Your Spirit on Iraq and Kurdistan.

    That the Christians would stand firm in their faith in Jesus despite the persecution.
    That God would raise up leaders who would protect Christians from the religious extremists and any others who would put them in harm’s way.
    For salvation of Iraq’s people.
    For me to point the way to Jesus and His Word.
  4. Almighty God,may the sons of Ishmael become passive so that those who preach Jesus can have an open door into their ears and hearts. We know your word will not return void. May the the faith of those who became martyrs give those who hate your Son pause and wonderment at their their willingness to live for Christ than to die for the world, In the name of Jesus, Amen.
  5. Heavenly Father Who Art In Heaven,
    Thou knowest the spiritual stronghold/strongholds over the country Iraq. Move mightily
    in the heavenlies to protect our Armerican loved ones there, to bring them home safely.
    Bless the Iraqis who are persecuting Americans and believers, bless them; help Open Doors
    do good there, help the American soldiers do good there. Help us to leave a good legacy for
    the people of Iraq. Thank you Father, for the opportunity to pray to you for hope, health
    and healing in this beleagured nation. Give believers the peace that passes all understanding
    and joy unspeakable as they continue to endure to the end.
    In Jesus’s name I pray.
    Amen
  6. Dear Lord,
    We pray Lord that you would touch the Christians of Iraq. Persecution of Christians throughout the world is stronger than ever, especially in Muslim countries. Please be with these people, strengthening them to endure what they must and to encourage one another in their love for God. We know that by trusting in you, no matter what happens for the short time we are on earth, that we will be with you for eternity. I ask that you let them know that people around the world are praying for them daily.
    In Jesus’ Name,
    Amen
  7. Father,
    We lift up our Iraqi brothers and sisters. Give them peace and strength to stand up to the enemy. Gird them with the armor of God. We pray that you would leash your angels over the believers and soften the hearts of the unsaved. May they come to know your amazing love! Thank you for the missonary support from Open Doors and others. In Jesus precious name we pray this. Amen.

    UNIUS REI VS NIMROD BAAL IMF 666 -- Micah 5:1-6 [a]Marshal your troops now, city of troops, for a siege is laid against us. They will strike Israel's ruler, on the cheek with a rod. 2. "But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans[b] of Judah, out of you will come for me, one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times." 3. Therefore Israel will be abandoned until the time when she who is in labor bears a son, and the rest of his brothers return, to join the Israelites.

    UNIUS REI VS NIMROD BAAL IMF 666 -- 4. He will stand and shepherd his flock, in the strength of the Lord, in the majesty of the name of the Lord his God. And they will live securely, for then his greatness, will reach to the ends of the earth. 5. And he will be our peace, when the Assyrians invade our land and march through our fortresses. We will raise against them seven shepherds, even eight commanders, 6. who will rule[c] the land of Assyria with the sword, the land of Nimrod with drawn sword.[d] He will deliver us from the Assyrians, when they invade our land, and march across our borders.

    God the Creator of the heavens and the earth and man said in the Holy Quran. (83) Say (O Muhammad): We believe in Allah (God) and That Which is revealed unto us and revealed unto Abraham and Ishmael That Which Was and Isaac and Jacob and the tribes, and That Which Was vouchsafed unto Moses and Jesus and Their prophets from the Lord. We make no distinction between any of them, and unto Him we have surrendered. (84)Surah Al-E-Imran - ANSWER - IF YOU were doing the works of God and the prophets? you would never have killed innocent people (Christians), but Satan is your father, because you do the same works that murderer of Muhammad had done, in fact, you do not follow the teachings of Jesus, it is impossible for a Muslim to enter, in heaven if despise the Bible, or the Gospel, but many Muslims Satanists, they burn the Bible and the Gospel!

Both And they used to eat (earthly) food. See how We make the revelations clear for them, and see how they are turned away! (75) Surah Al-Maeda: in = jesus bible say = This is eternal life: that they may know You the only true God and Jesus Christ Whom you have sent, but, Christians worship messenger. - ANSWER - you will not be condemned for being a Muslim, because Muslims good people? go to Heaven, you will be condemned, because, not having, received a divine revelation, you personally, as many Muslims, who have become Christians, you judge the infinite things of God, to do harm to innocent people on matters of conscience

    if you understand Christianity? then, also, you will be killed by the Muslims, because, in their eyes, you will always be, a blasphemer and idolater! but this is the truth, God has given free will, while satanaAllah, has captured:: taken it! se tu capisci il cristianesimo? poi, anche, tu sarai ucciso dai musulmani, perché, ai loro occhi, tu sarai sempre, un blasfemo ed idolatra! ma, questa è la verità, Dio ha dato il libero arbitrio, mentre, satanaAllah lo ha tolto!
