Prayers for Peacemakers, 8 January 2020 Iraqi Kurdistan



Please pray for an end of hostilities and escalating threats of war between the U.S.A. and Iran. The world needs people of all faiths and walks of life to rise up and say: No to war! This war, if triggered, would devastate many countries and impact millions of lives. 

U.S. and Iranian leaders are exchanging escalating threats and their militaries are engaging in escalating retaliation against each other, which is forcing the region to the brink of full-scale war waged on Iraqi soil. This war would have devastating consequences not only for Iran and the U.S.A., but especially for Iraq and Kurdistan. The devastating impact of vengeful acts of war or full-scale war will ripple across the Middle East causing massive death and destruction.  

As the tensions rise by the hour, the CPT Iraqi Kurdistan team and our partners worry tremendously about what will happen to the whole region if these escalating aggressions continue or erupt into full-scale warfare. We ask for prayers and continued actions around the world calling for de-escalation of war and renewed commitment to diplomacy. Please pray for a miracle of peace and take actions for peace and against war in your home community.
