Young Girls in Iraq forced to Marry at the age of 9 ,letsTake A Stand Against Underage Marriage


Please pray for young girls in iraq who now face an Iraqi Marriage Law  that subjects them to marriage even if they are  Younger. This  Iraqi bill  would permit girls younger than nine from the country's majority Shiite population to marry.
Child marriage is defined as a formal marriage or informal union entered into by an individual before reaching the age of 18.  Many below the age of 15 are married and have children.Every year 14 million girls. are married as children, denied their rights to health, education and opportunity, and robbed of their childhood.
many underage girls are still forced into marriage in the world, placing them under great emotional stress and
 more likely to die in childbirth.

Please pray for the Young Girls in Iraq and all over the world
