Pray for Iraq - facebook page

A mass grave was discovered in a formerly Daesh (ISIS) controlled area near the banks of the Tigris River in northern Iraq containing the bodies of men and boys. The hundreds of men killed are believed to have been prisoners who willingly turned themselves in. Under the laws of war, these prisoners should have been given fair trials, a crucial step seemingly skipped by their captors, as evidenced by the unmarked, hastily-dug resting place. Despite Daesh’s horrific crimes, Baghdad should treat former Daesh combatants humanely because it’s the right thing to do. It is in Iraq’s best interest. Pray that the government will refrain from revengeful punishments. Pray that the traumatized victims will overcome by forgiving their enemies (The Bible, Romans 12:19).

Iraq’s opportunity to reconcile
