A prayer vigil in front of the White House will take place this morning in support of persecuted Christians and religious freedom for all in Iraq.  A statement from the Christian Defense Coalition says the prayer event begins the observance of “The Rogation of the Ninevites,” described as one of the oldest traditions in Christianity.  The “Rogation,” which finds its ancient roots in the Prophet Jonah and is observed by Assyrian, Chaldean and Syriac Christians in Iraq and around the world, includes three days of fasting, prayer, and repentance.  The observance ends Wednesday.
