Prayers for Peacemakers, October 14, 2015
Pray that civil war will not break out in Iraqi Kurdistan. The government has not paid civil servants’ salaries for three months. Demonstrations across the region have left five dead, and dozens injured, and dozens detained by the secret police. The ruling KDP party has forced the Gorran (Change) party to leave the government and the capital. The majority of those who demand changes to the current situation do not condone violence. They call for the changes to come through non-violent means. Pray that those voices and actions prevail.
