Some of the 120,000 refugee Christians in Kurdistan have written a song to explain that being ‘N’ (the letter IS scrolled on their homes) means unconditional love, to build bridges of peace, to believe in Jesus Christ, to teach, to forgive regardless of the crimes against you They sang their song on a SAT-7 TV broadcast. Meanwhile, a Christian child from Cairo called Mario called the studio to pray for Iraq and all the Arab countries. Mario prayed over the air:
“We thank you for extending your glory to everything in our lives, Lord… We pray for Iraq and all Arab countries, they’re in your hand, Lord. Let there be peace and forgiveness… Even those killing others, you love them very much. You wait for them that they may come back to you again. Lord Jesus, you said, ‘Come to me, you who are weary and heavy laden, and I will give you rest.’ Yes, Lord. May we come back to you in everything, Lord Jesus. Whether it be a small problem or a big problem, whether it be among nations or something material, or anything… you will be glorified, Lord Jesus.”
The innocence of a child’s prayers are an uplifting witness during such trying times. God can use the next generation to shape a different future for the region according to His will.
