( - Recent bombings targeting churches in the cities of Baghdad and Mosul killed at least four people and injured approximately 30 others. On July 11, two bombs ripped through the St. Joseph church in western Baghdad at approximately 10:00 p.m.

The next afternoon, three bombs exploded within 15 minutes of each other outside three different church buildings in Baghdad. That evening, a car bomb detonated outside a church building in the eastern region of the city. Only minutes later, another bomb exploded outside a church building in Baghdad's Dora district. On July 13, a car bomb detonated near Our Lady of Fatima Church in the city of Mosul.

Pray for those who have lost loved ones. Ask God to guard the hearts of Iraqi Christians against fear and enable them to continue serving Him with boldness. Pray that those responsible for these bombings will repent and come to know Christ as their Lord and Saviour. Join in interceding for persecuted Christians in Iraq by posting a prayer on our Persecuted Church Prayer Wall at
