Pray for Iraqi Refugees from Destroyed Qaraqosh

[274] prayers in [19] nations have been posted for Iraqi Refugees.

Qaraqosh, Iraq’s largest Christian city, was liberated from the self-proclaimed Islamic State (ISIS) in October 2016, but believers who lived under the terrorists’ control for two years continue to struggle for survival. More than 20,000 people fled the city as Iraqi and Kurdish forces fought for its liberation, with thousands of Iraqi Christians fleeing to Iraqi Kurdistan and neighboring Jordan. These people have lost everything. Their city has been destroyed, and ISIS stole everything they owned. VOM workers recently distributed MP3 New Testaments to many families from Qaraqosh, praying with them and offering encouragement. VOM also ministers to 1,000 Christian families from Qaraqosh living in Jordan. “It is difficult for me to describe the needs of the people we minister to,” a VOM worker said. “They are overwhelming and the suffering is indescribable. They are comforted in knowing their Western brothers and sisters know of their suffering and are praying for them.”
