We bring the present situation in Iraq before you, Lord Jesus. We ask that the murderous advance of ISIS be stopped, in Jesus’ name.
We recognise that there is a pack mentality at work vying for power, whether under the guise of ISIS, Sunnis or Shiite factions, fuelled by outside stakeholders fanning the flames. In all this madness, the civilian population is terrorised, brutalised and forced to flee their homeland.
We ask for righteous, godly Iraqi rulers to take over the reign of this country to bring lasting peace among the various groups, even if it requires a miracle. We boldly ask for such a miracle, on behalf of your own Iraqi people, the people of God, our brothers and sisters in Christ.
Prov. 29:2 “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn”.
