Subject: Urgent Prayer Request (Franklin Graham)
Lacking any government authority to which to turn for help for these people, I can only look up – please consider doing the same.
Prayer Request Ladies & Gentlemen – this is an urgent prayer
FROM SAMARITAN’S PURSE MINISTRY: Dear brothers, got this as a very urgent request…counting on you guys to pray and also forward to others who will do the same…This is urgent news from Samaritans Purse. This was sent for prayer from Chaplains with Rapid Response Team. Pray & pass to others.
Just a few minutes ago the following text message was received 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 to. 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 its 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 e-mail. 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. We need to stand in the gap for our fellow Christians.
