Sabah Gurgis (55), a Chaldean Catholic business owner in al Saa, Mosul, was shot and killed on March 7. Sabah leaves to mourn his wife and child. His killing is the latest in a series of deadly attacks on believers in the city, including the recent murder of three men earlier this month (click here for more information).

Ask God to fill those who mourn for Sabah with a peace that surpasses understanding in the midst of their grief (Philippians 4:7). Ask God to continue to equip Iraqi Christians to be cross-bearing disciples as they serve Him. Pray for the peace of Jesus to reign in this troubled land.
