Thank you for covering Baghdad with 24-7 prayer this Ramadan! We’re excited to see God’s Kingdom grow in this city.

Haifa Street

Haifa Street is a two-mile-long street that runs parallel to the Tigris River and houses many high-rise residential apartments. There was significant unrest and a number of deaths on this street around 2004-2007 and in that period it was riddled with insurgent hideouts. In 2023, the prime minister of Iraq launched a campaign and project to rehabilitate Haifa Street to turn it into a “model street”. The project included the paving of the sidewalks with decoration, removing deformities, installing decorative lighting poles and for the buildings, constructing four fountains, furnishing the street’s traffic signs, installing bicycle lanes, painting the façades of the buildings, and area planning.

Pray for:  Despite being rich in natural oil, Iraq’s economy is weak and heavily relies on its neighbors by importing most of its food from Turkey and Iran. Pray that like Haifa Street was turned around, that not only that Iraq’s economy would flourish, but for believers to have influence in the decision making and that hearts would be turned to Him and not on their economic situation.
