Pray for Christians in Iraq

I am saddened by today's CNN report of another Christian church bombing in Iraq. This was "the seventh Christian house of worship in the country to be bombed in three days."

"Many of Iraq's estimated 1 million Christians have fled the country after targeted attacks by extremists. In October, more than a thousand Iraqi families fled Mosul after they were reportedly frightened by a series of killings and threats by Muslim extremists, who apparently ordered them to convert to Islam or face possible death. At least 14 Christians were killed in Mosul in the first two weeks of October."
