Wednesday's Voice - Iraq

Christian man shot and killed in Kirkuk, Iraq

Christians in Iraq have expressed fear of renewed violence after 34-year-old Hani Salim Wadi was shot and killed in front of his home in Kirkuk on June 7. Hani, a Christian businessman, is survived by his wife and daughter. Those who witnessed the shooting have described it as a "targeted killing." Several Christians in Kirkuk and Mosul have been the targets of serious attacks in recent months Chaldean Archbishop Emil Nona said: "We are seeing another, the umpteenth, attack against Christians. The violence continues without relief." (Source: Zenit)

Pray for those mourning the loss of Hani.

Ask God to guard the hearts of Iraqi Christians against fear and enable them to continue serving Him with boldness.

That they will know that the Heavenly Father defends the oppressed and the fatherless ( Psalm 10:17,18)
