A special prayer was offered for Christians in Iraq while Reverend Shahid Miraj said that Iraq has been home to Christianity from centuries.
“I pray for the security, love, and protection of God Almighty at this difficult time in Iraq and other parts of the world. We also pray for the wellbeing of the bereaved families of martyred Iraqi Christians and ask the Divine Power to grant them consolation and closure. We pray for Him to place fear in the hearts of those responsible for the attacks, to prevent them from engaging in the merciless slaughter of Christians in Iraq,” Reverend Shahid Miraj said.
