Three Christians kidnapped in Iraq

Please pray for three kidnapped Christians in Iraq.
Three Christians were kidnapped near Kirkuk on September 21, reports Middle East Concern.

The believers were returning from a hunting trip when their vehicle was stopped by a group of armed men. A fourth person, of Turkoman ethnicity, travelling with them was also kidnapped. The group's burnt-out vehicle was found shortly afterwards, and the remains of their hunting dogs were found inside.

Iraqi Christians fear that this is incident is yet another attack aimed at the Christian presence in Iraq.

Iraqi Christians request our prayers that:
  • The kidnapped men will be released unharmed.
  • They and their families will know the peace and presence of Jesus.
  • The kidnappers will know the Spirit's conviction, the Son's offer of forgiveness and the Father's welcome to relationship with God.
