Christians and Religious Minorities in the Middle East: We stand by you!
While staying in Iraq with the #HelpForIraq Expedition, CitizenGO had many, many conversations with Christians and Yazidis. We sat with Bishops, priests, monks and ordinary people of different ages, and we listened to their concerns, their needs, and their requests.
The biggest concern that people - especially the relatives of persecuted minorities - have, there, is the fear of being forgotten by the world community. That is precisely why they were so pleased and grateful for our visit...as well as the fact that we brought material assistance with us.
The biggest request from the Iraqi people, especially from the Christians and the Yazidis, was a request for prayer. How often did we hear: "Please pray for us, for safety, for a good future. Please pray that we can soon return to our towns and villages, and to our homes, from which we had to flee for fear of the so-called Islamic State. Please pray that we can live there again in safely, and not be persecuted. Pray, pray, pray!"
We encourage you to please give a little of your time for the oppressed Christians, Yazidis and all the religious minorities in the Middle East, and pray for them. For peace, security, and to ensure a bright future.
This petition is launched to show the oppressed Christians, Yazidis, and other persecuted people, that they are not forgotten.
If you wish, you can also include a personal message in signing this petition. We will refer these messages, along with the list of signatories, to the Bishops, priests, and other ministers of the Christian communities in northern Iraq, as well as to representatives of the Yazidis, and assure as many members of the oppressed minorities of your prayers and your genuine sympathy.
Thank you for signing.
