Praise about release of Yazidi captives

Heavenly Father, today we celebrate the group of Yazidi women and children released by the Islamic State to return home to Iraq! After more than four years in captivity, we rejoice that these survivors have a chance to heal and to live freely among their own people again. We are thankful for the Kurdistan Regional Government’s efforts to bring these women and children home. Lord God, you know what lies ahead for them. You know the trauma they’ve experienced and the devastating losses to their community, due to ISIS’ genocidal intentions toward them. Please bring people and resources into their lives to help them recover and thrive. Draw them close to you. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
