In Need of Prayer


Mayan, 46, and her children, Hareman, 6, (left), and Manaa, 8, (right), had to flee their home in Nineveh and take refuge in another part of Iraq.

Iraq is the cradle of biblical families. Abraham, the father of faith, came from Ur in the south. Mosul, on the northern Plains of Ninevah, is in the area where the prophet Jonah ministered. It is distressing to see ancient places of worship and cities where faith was nurtured become places of persecution against Christians and other ethnic and religious minorities.

In 2015, World Vision assisted Iraqi refugees living in churches in Jordan with winter clothing. Inside Iraq, World Vision staff there supported churches’ efforts to care for displaced families. 

Please pray with us for families in the Middle East who are in need:

“Lord, You pronounced blessing on those who experienced persecution for Your sake (Matt. 5:10). Bless those today who are suffering persecution with Your peace. Comfort them in their affliction and lead them to safety.”
