Persecution

The Islamic State group have been systematically killing Christian and Yazidi youngsters n Iraq, as recorded in a report by the United Nations Committee on the Rights of Child. There have been mass executions of boys under the age of 18, as well as IS using them as suicide bombers, bomb makers, informants and human shields. The UN group has also received reports of IS beheading children, crucifying children and burying children alive. Even some Muslim boys have been amongst the IS victim. Pray that the IS militants who order or carry out such atrocities may each have a powerful personal encounter with the living Lord Jesus, and may turn away from their violence and persecution (Acts9:1-5).
