Join the Call for Prayer for the People of Iraq
We continue to pray for all in Iraq suffering violence and for all those who are in danger.
The Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR) in a statement released on Wednesday called for all people of all denominations to join in a moment of prayer on Thursday, June 19, at 6 PM (in your local time zone) to pray for the people of Iraq, an end to violence and the protection of minority Christians in Iraq.
“We believe that prayer has the power to change the course of events in Iraq,” Sister Carol noted. “We stand with our sisters and brothers who courageously remain with the people they serve and will join with them in prayer for as long and as often as it takes until the violence ceases.”
