Subject: urgent prayer request for Iraq
(I just received this email, prayed over it and had to send it out. Brad)
Just a few minutes ago I received the following text message on my phone from Sean Malone who leads Crisis Relief International (CRI). We then spoke briefly on the phone and I assured him that we would share this urgent prayer need with all of our contacts.
“We lost the city of Queragosh (Qaraqosh). It fell to ISIS and they are beheading children systematically. This is the city we have been smuggling food too. ISIS has pushed back Peshmerga (Kurdish forces) and is within 10 minutes of where our CRI team is working. Thousands more fled into the city of Erbil last night. The UN evacuated it’s staff in Erbil. Our team is unmoved and will stay. Prayer cover needed!”
Please pray sincerely for the deliverance of the people of Northern Iraq from the terrible advancement of ISIS and its extreme Islamic goals for mass conversion or death for Christians across this region.
May I plead with you not to ignore this email. Do not forward it before you have prayed through it. Then send it to as many people as possible.
Send it to friends and Christians you may know. Send it to your prayer group. Send it to your pastor and phone him/her to pray on Sunday during the service – making a special time of prayer for this. We need to stand in the gap for our fellow Christians.
“And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly and to love mercifully and to walk humbly with your God.” -Micah 6:8
Michael Brown, this 18 year old boy, “not man,” who was jay walking across the street with his friend was stop by this police officer not because he just stole cigars from a store, but because he was target for jay walking across the street. A real officer would not stop him for something so petty unless he was racial profiling him. Zimmerman did the same thing to Trayvon Martin and he was not even a real cop. This kid who just graduated from high school was shot four times in the arm running from the police. When he stopped, turned around, and raised both hands in the air to surrender, he was then shot two times in the forehead. This young black kid, “not man” was executed in broad daylight by a white police officer, a person of authority, who supposes to protect all citizens, no matter their race or creed. It troubles me how they protected this police officer since day one by not showing his picture, at first they didn’t give his name, and they have yet to press charges. It’s just sad, I pray to God that they will bring him to justice because what he did is inhuman and it’s injustice. The question is, “What did this 18 year old boy do to deserve to be shot four times in the arm and twice in the head after he surrender to the cop?” He didn’t have a weapon on him. Think about this America, “This could have been your child.”
