Iraq - ISIS and Christians: A call to prayer

Open Doors UK and Ireland

Please continue to pray for our church family in Iraq.

At the end of last week ISIS issued Christians in Mosul with an ultimatum:
'Stay and convert, pay Islamic tax (more than most families can afford) or leave.'

And a threat:
'Those who refuse 'will have nothing but the sword!'

Most Christians have now left Mosul.

At ISIS checkpoints Christians have been forced to leave everything behind, including cars, money and mobile phones - the only things they could keep were the clothes they were standing in. They then had to walk in the heat to safety.

Open Doors is supporting fleeing Christians in Iraq
