“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” 2 Timothy 1:7 (NKJV)

Mosul, Iraq

Mosul, the capital of Ninawa Governorate, is Iraq’s secondlargest city. The population has traditionally consisted of Kurds and a significant minority of Christian Arabs. After much ethnic conflict, the city fell to the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (ISIL) in June 2014. In 2017, Iraqi and Kurdish forces finally pushed out the Sunni insurgents. Since then, efforts have been made to restore the war-torn region.

Tradition says that the prophet Jonah established a church in what is now Mosul, though this is just speculation. Nineveh was on the east bank of the Tigris river in ancient Assyria, and Mosul is on the west bank. Nebi Yunis is revered as the traditional tomb of Jonah, but it was destroyed by ISIL in July 2014.

Today only a few dozen Christian families have returned to Mosul since it was recaptured in 2017. New teams of Jesusfollowing church planters from other parts of the Middle East are now entering Mosul and sharing the good news with this recovering city.

Ways To Pray:

  • Pray for the advancement of God’s Kingdom throughout the 14 languages of this city.
  • Pray for the teams who have dedicated their lives to planting churches and sharing the gospel in this city; pray for their supernatural protection and for wisdom and courage.
  • Pray for a mighty movement of prayer to be birthed in Mosul that multiplies throughout the country.
  • Pray for followers of Jesus to walk in the power of the Spirit. Pray for a resurrection of God’s divine purpose for this city.
