Prayer Fuel

Day 30 - April 8, 2024

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


Saydiyah is a neighborhood close to the Baghdad International Airport. It is a middle-class area that was still not immune to the violence of the civil war in the mid-2000s. A large mosque Um Al-Tabul is seen from the highway in Saydiyah along the road to and from the airport. More construction is happening here every day to accommodate housing for more people moving into the city. 

Although the above picture is not in this neighborhood it represents life and so pray for life to come back to Baghdad. The Tigris River and the Euphrates River which is located west of Baghdad have both been dangerously low in the past years due to neighboring countries damming the rivers from the north and lack of rainfall.

Pray for:  This region is known as the Fertile Crescent and Mesopotamia, or the land between the two rivers. Pray against the destruction of the ecosystem here as many are being forced to move to the cities as the rural areas are becoming uninhabitable due to heat and lack of water. May life return here physically and spiritually!

Characteristic of God: The Life

“Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6

In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” John 1:4-5

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.
