Baghdad, formerly named “city of peace”, is the capital of Iraq and one of the largest urban agglomerations in the Middle East. Baghdad was revered by Muslims as the cosmopolitan center of the Arab world when Iraq was at the height of its stability and economic stature in the '70s.

After enduring seemingly constant war and conflict over the past 30 years, this emblem feels like a fading memory to its people.

Today, most of Iraq’s traditional Christian minority groups can be found in Baghdad, numbering around 250,000 people. With unprecedented population growth and continued economic instability, a window of opportunity is opened for Jesus followers in Iraq to heal their fractured nation through the peace of God found only in the Messiah.

Prayer Emphasis

Pray for a mighty movement of prayer to sweep over the house churches.
Pray for the historic church to be filled with God’s grace and boldness as they share their faith with others.
Pray for the Kingdom of God to advance through prayer and evangelism.
