ISIS – beheading children for their faith

We received this urgent prayer request this week.

Who will stand in the gap?  The POTUS has not sent troops.  Tell me again he isn’t Islamic?  Children are being executed by beheading for their faith.  CHILDREN

What would you do?

On Thursday, October 30, 2014 7:22 AM,

This is from our Missionary friends in Alaska Bible College .

Missionaries in ISIS controlled city
Urgent Prayer Request.

Prayer Request from Dan and Marilyn Wilson M’naries who are in the areas that are being attacked by ISIS are asking to be showered in prayer.

ISIS has taken over the town they are in today. He said ISIS is systematically going house to house to all the Christians and asking the children to denounce Jesus. He said so far not one child has. And so far all have consequently been killed. But not the parents. The UN has withdrawn and they are on their own.

They are determined to stick it out for the sake of the families – even if it means their own deaths. They are very afraid, have no idea how to even begin ministering to these families who have had seen their children martyred. Yet he says he knows God has called them for some reason to be His voice and hands at this place at this time. Even so, they are begging for prayers for courage to live out their vocation in such dire circumstances. And like the children, accept martyrdom if they are called to do so.

These brave parents instilled such a fervent faith in their children that they chose martyrdom. Please surround them in their loss with your prayers for hope and perseverance. One m’nary was able to talk to her brother briefly by phone. She didn’t say it, but I believe she believes it will be their last conversation. Pray for her too. She said he just kept asking her to help him know what to do and do it. She told him to tell the families we ARE praying for them and they are not alone or forgotten – no matter what.

Please keep them all in your prayers.

Just a few minutes ago I received the following text message on my phone from Sean Malone who leads Crisis Relief International (CRI). We then spoke briefly on the phone and I assured him that we would share this urgent prayer need with all of our contacts. “We lost the city of Queragosh (Qaraqosh). It fell to ISIS and they are beheading children systematically. This is the city we have been smuggling food to. ISIS has pushed back Peshmerga (Kurdish forces) and is within 10 minutes of where our CRI team is working. Thousands more fled into the city of Erbil last night.

The UN evacuated its staff in Erbil . Our team is unmoved and will stay. Prayer cover needed!” Please pray sincerely for the deliverance of the people of Northern Iraq from the terrible advancement of ISIS and its extreme Islamic goals for mass conversion or death for Christians across this region.

May I plead with you not to ignore this email. Do not forward it before you have prayed through it. Then send it to as many people as possible. Send it to friends and Christians you may know.

Send it to your prayer group. Send it to your pastor and phone him to pray on Sunday during the service – making a special time of prayer for this. We need to stand in the gap for our fellow Christians.

My soul waits in silence for God only; from Him is my salvation.

He only is my rock and my salvation, my stronghold; I shall not be greatly shaken.

Psalm 62:1-2

And I say again. Rejoice.

I praise you in this storm.

Everything is happening perfectly.  By that I mean, in His time (not my own).

I have had a headache for 2 days, stress.  This too shall pass.

Prayers that we find a resolution to release ownership of Wiley to rescue; preferable to animal control.  Due to his age he is likely to be immediately euthanized.  He deserves better.

Father.  Your will be done.
