Prayer for Christians in Iraq
Lord, The plight of Iraq is deep and the suffering of Christians is severe and frightening. Therefore, we ask you Lord to spare lives, and to grant patience, and courage to continue the witness of Christian values there with trust and hope. Lord, peace is the foundation of life; Grant us the peace and stability that will enable the people of Iraq to live with each other without fear and anxiety, and with dignity and joy. Glory be to you forever.
This is a prayer request from the U.S. Catholic Conference of Bishops and Pope Francis.
