“Over 95% of Iraqis are Muslim, and an alarming 98% remain unreached by the Gospel.” -PrayerCast
Iraq is a Middle Eastern Country located in the middle of Jordan, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Iran, Kuwait.
Iraq has faced a lot of war, poverty, and terror and desperately needs the love of Jesus. Many Christians, however, have fled the country due to persecution and some believe that Christianity will be completely “cleansed” from Iraq.
Yet with our God there is always Hope.
“…Even amidst horrific terror and violence, a light is dawning. The redemptive power of God is again at work, bringing light from darkness and hope from despair. In the midst of, and even because of this conflict, unreached people groups are now experiencing the love of Christ, and Muslims are turning to Jesus in unprecedented numbers – even from extremist backgrounds. God’s love reaches into every corner of this broken nation, from the fertile plains of the Tigris and Euphrates to the deserts of the west and from the mountainous north to the southern marshlands. He alone is the answer. He alone is their Deliverer.”- PrayerCast
