Prayer Fuel

Day 24 - April 2, 2024

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

Abu Nawas

Abu Nawas is an area on the east coast of the Tigris next to the famous district of Karada. Even just a few years ago it was an area with broken swing sets and dying grass. It has since been built up with a running track along a newly paved sidewalk representing how the city of Baghdad is starting to rebuild after years of devastation. There are now multiple playgrounds for kids and community grills for people to have picnics along the Tigris. Despite this, the area is still known for prostitution and drunkenness. One testimony that was posted online is that a depressed man was looking into the Tigris and instead of seeing his face’s reflection, he saw the reflection of who he knew to be Jesus. He has since given his life to Him and no longer is bound by depression!

Pray for: The people of Baghdad to know that they are seen by God this Ramadan. Pray that they would realize they do not have to strive for His love, but simply accept Him.

Characteristic of God: The God who Sees

She [Hagar] gave this name to the Lord who spoke to her: “You are the God who sees me,” for she said, “I have now seen the One who sees me.” Genesis 16:13

Praying as a group?

Leading others in prayer is a great step in making disciples. We want to celebrate your and their faithfulness. For each person that prays with you, we will add 15 minutes to the 32.8 days of prayer committed so far.
