Iraq: A Kairos Moment in History
Abby Abildness, Director of Healing Tree International

Having recently returned from Northern Kurdish Iraq on a medical training mission on crisis response, I have gained perspective on the strategic moment in history the United States is facing in that region. Iraqi Kurdish government physicians told us they rejoice at their newfound freedoms since the fall of the Saddam regime, and the United Nations establishment of the City of Refuge and Healing in that region. Their Kurdish Globe reports that Duhok is proud to be a business gateway of massive rebuilding housing and business projects. Their people are impressed as they watch President Bush’s resolve to continue the fight no matter the opposition. Iraqi’s are impacted by the integrity of American values so much that they welcome us to come into their land to live and teach them. They want to learn how to rule with justice, and how to heal with medical and spiritual wisdom. They want to learn our faith as they see trustworthiness they don’t see in their own people. They say it would be good for the United States and for them if we remain in their land for security and rebuilding. Pray the truth of this good comes out in the media and that we see this positive diplomacy for the victory of our government purposes and sacrifices of our soldiers. Intercession for God’s purposes to be fulfilled is critical since rebuilding is determined not by might, nor power, but by His Spirit (Zechariah 4:6). I see the potential fulfillment of Isaiah 61:4 for Iraq in rebuilding the ancient ruins, and raising up the former desolations, repairing the ruined cities, the devastations of many generation and (verse 7) instead of shame there shall be a double portion, and instead of dishonor they shall rejoice in their lot and have everlasting joy.

Our nation is founded on the faith of our fathers, and has been called to be a nation to show the Father God’s heart to protect and care for other nations in need. This battle in Iraq is a KAIROS moment in history as the eyes of the world are watching and being impacted by the unveiling of justice and truth to the Middle Eastern people. It is no wonder the media battle rages with such high stakes. Prayer Surge is critical in releasing the power of the Spirit of God to bring victory in that region. Just as Northern Iraq is becoming a gateway to rebuilding business and housing, to bring healing to the land of Iraq, it will also be a gateway to healing for America and the world. As other nations are watching, we are providing a powerful witness to the faith of our nation’s founding fathers. This war is a sacred task. If we can keep the focus as One Nation Under God on healing their land we will find it will bring healing to our land. America has a Father’s heart to bring justice and healing to nations. If we trust in God for success, we would come out of there having done a great thing for the world.
