Much of Iraq’s Christian population—halved and halved and halved again since the 2003 U.S. invasion—now finds itself shoved into the Kurdish corner of Iraq with nowhere else to go but cities like Erbil and Duhok, cities isolated from the rest of the country and surrounded by mountains with limited transit routes. War in Syria, hostility in Iran, and a closed border to Turkey all leave the Christians forced from Mosul and Nineveh Plain this summer with next to no options—and so they have crowded into church courtyards, sleeping in streets and parks, living out of tents or on open ground. 

Are we continuing to pray for our brothers and sisters, lifting their arms as they fight the good fight of faith,  or have other more "pressing" matters drown out their cries for help, and crowded out their tears?

Could this happen in America?  Yes!! -  And should God allow it, would we wish christians in other nations to be as faithful to pray for us as we have been to pray for the persecuted church in Iraq and around the world.

  1. Could it happen in the U.S.? I think this article makes a good case that God may very well use Islam to punish the USA.

  2. I think a strong case could be made that God is already using Islam to punish America. Case in point, POTUS. - Muslim Barack Hussein Obama.

  3. Just heard that ISIS has abducted a precious three year old girl from her Christian parents. Please pray!! It seems daily it continues to get worse and worse. We wrestle not against flesh and blood, but..... No plainer could this be seen than in the actions of ISIS.
