Prayer Fuel

Day 10 - March 19, 2024

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

Green Zone

The Green Zone, or International Zone is a heavily fortified 10km2 area in the city located on the western shore of the Tigris. It protects the world’s largest embassy, belonging to the US, along with many other embassies. Special permissions and pre-arranged appointments are needed to enter and most Baghdadis will never be allowed to enter throughout their lifetime. It has been the target of some rocket attacks in the past several years mostly as a protest against US and western presence in the city. It was created to mark a “safe” place in the city while the rest of Baghdad was considered “red” as dangerous. The Green Zone is a constant reminder to Baghdadis of western presence and fortification from danger. 

Pray for:  That Baghdadis would know that God is that Sanctifier and that He alone can redeem and protect. Pray also against the stronghold of hate and unforgiveness that comes from years of war and trauma. 

Song: Oh the Cross:

Characteristic of God: Our Sanctifier 

“I am the Lord, who makes you holy.” Leviticus 20:8b

“For if, because of one man’s trespass, death reigned through that one man, much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and the free gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man Jesus Christ.” Romans 5:17

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.
