Strict lockdown measures have been in place since May to contain the spread of the COVID-19 virus. However, trade unions and health inspectors report that garment manufacturing factories were ordered to remain open. This has resulted in outbreaks in the factories and the boarding houses where many workers live. Job speaks of horses that God has created who recognize the blast of the trumpets, the shouts of the commander and the call to battle. Today, how much more do we hear the call to battle in prayer? We respond by asking God to intervene in our world, struggling under the weight of the pandemic. We pray for the vulnerable, like factory workers, for mercy to abound (The Bible, Job 39:25).
Lord rain down Your miraculous manifestations over the country of Iraq and reveal Your glorious saving power to them. Avenge the enemies, the persecutors of the Christian Believers and the destroyers of the Churches to fall at the feet of God and act strongly with Your justice. Bring into subjection the Iranian-backed militias targeting Iraqi cities and air bases with drone attacks. Lord prompt the Iraqis to turn to God in repentance and seek His gracious forgiveness of sins as the COVID-19 infections are spiking and causing great concern in the Ministry of Health. Help the authorities to speed up the awakening process and protect the people from the danger of the virus remaining at such a high level of infection that may lead to the emergence of strains that make the virus more lethal. (The Bible, 1 Peter 5:8).
