Christians Pray for God's Wisdom in Iraq War at 9/11 Vigil

On the eve of the sixth anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001, a prayer vigil was held in Lafayette Park across from the White House to remember the victims of Sept. 11 and to pray for God’s wisdom regarding decisions to be made about the Iraq war.

“It is essential that the faith community humble themselves and urgently seek God for His wisdom, guidance and direction,” said Patrick J. Mahoney, director of the Christian Defense Coalition. “We [gathered] at the White House, on the eve of 9/11, to cry out to God for His mercy and grace and ask Him to superintend over the war in Iraq and the affairs of our nation.”

The group that met together in the park was comprised of both local and national Christian leaders. They began the evening candlelight vigil with worship and then prayed for the president, law enforcement and the military. Mahoney believes that the nation, which is still involved in full-scale war in Iraq, is in a critical period of time, and that believers must pray for God to intercede.

“The decisions that will be made concerning the war in Iraq over the next several weeks will have a profound impact on the future of America and the entire Middle East,” Mahoney said. “We need to seek God.”
