ISIS KILLS CHRISTIAN CHILDREN
KILLS CHRISTIAN CHILDREN
September 22, 2014
Jean Lesley the sister of a
Christian Missionary in Northern Iraq is asking
for prayers but I believe we can do more. “We the Christians” need to get to
work and tell our Government, NOT ask to stop procrastinating and stop this
madness, NOW! ISIS is at our door steps and if we don’t stop them they will be
at your home or workplace, then it will be to late. I’m asking, no, telling all
Christians; get on your knees and pray for GOD’S help, then get up and start
working towards putting ISIS out of commission... THIS IS REAL!!
I have received these two
emails from our missionary friends, one yesterday and one this morning. I just
wanted to pass it on so that as many people as possible can pray specifically
for our brothers and sisters. Much love and blessings
This is so sad... A friend
just got a text message from her brother asking her to shower him and his parish
in prayer. He is part of a mission and ISIS has taken over the town they are in today. He said ISIS is systematically going house to house to all the
Christians and asking the children to denounce Jesus. He said so far not one
child has. And so far all have consequently been killed. But not the parents.
The UN has withdrawn and the missionaries are on their own. They are determined
to stick it out for the sake of the families - even if it means their own
deaths. He is very afraid, has no idea how to even begin ministering to these
families who have seen their children martyred. Yet he says he knows God has
called him for some reason to be his voice and hands at this place at this time.
Even so, he is begging prayers for his courage to live out his vocation in such
dire circumstances. And like the children accept martyrdom if he is called to do
so. She asked me to ask everyone we know to please pray for them. These brave
parents instilled such a fervent faith in their children that they chose
martyrdom. Please surround them in their loss with your prayers for hope and
She was able to talk to her
brother briefly by phone. She didn't say it but I believe she believes it will
be their last conversation. Pray for her too. She said he just kept asking her
to help him know what to do and do it. She told him to tell the families we ARE
praying for them and they are not alone or forgotten -- no matter what. Her e
mail broke my heart. Please keep all in your prayers. Thanks
This came this morning...
Just a few minutes ago I received the following text message on my phone 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
(Qaraqosh). It fell to ISIS and they are
beheading children systematically. This is the city we have been smuggling food
too. 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 it's 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 email.
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. Send it to
your pastor and phone him/her to pray on Sunday during the service - making a
special time of prayer for this. We need to stand in the gap for our fellow
Love, light and blessings
