Iraqi Christians: bidding prayer suggestion

Well it does to the people who post here... dispassionate and reasoned debate, with a good deal of humour thrown in for good measure.

Iraqi Christians: bidding prayer suggestion

Post by BobHayes » Thu Aug 07, 2014 7:49 pm

Possibly of use:

We pray for Christians and other faith communities persecuted in Mosul and elsewhere in Iraq. We pray that their faith may help them in their tribulations and their search for sanctuary, so they may then receive compassion and care.

Or, more simply:
We pray for Christians and other faith communities persecuted in Mosul and elsewhere in Iraq.
We do have a habit of laying down conditions or specifying outcomes in our prayers.
