Today's Prayer

Sorani and Behdini Kurds of Central Asia

January 26, 2015
Sorani and Behdini Kurds of Central Asia “There are approximately 500,000 refugees living in our city, and that number rises daily. Many of them escaped their homes with only the clothing on their backs and what they could carry. They live in tents, abandoned buildings, schools, churches, under bridges, etc. We have seen firsthand the loss of human dignity they suffer on a daily basis, from cleaning themselves in toilet water to fighting over a small bag of clothes. If you watched the news this summer, you may have heard about the plight of the Yezidi people. They are a distinct Kurdish people group who practice a different religion than those around them. Other minority groups like them include the Kakai Kurds, Assyrians and Chaldeans. Many of them have suffered great persecution as a result of their religious and cultural differences, and they continue to suffer now. Will you intercede for them? Right now their main concern is surviving the winter and the rainy season. Please ask for provision for their immediate physical needs. Pray that people will be moved to help in the face of this human suffering. Ask that the local church will rise up and care for its own. Pray that those in captivity will be released. Pray that those who suffered so greatly this summer will receive the comfort and hope found in Christ. Pray for workers to be sent into this harvest field of unreached peoples. Pray that these people groups will hear and receive the Good News of Jesus Christ.”
