In Washington, DC, a prayer vigil will be held on Monday, Feb. 14, at 11 a.m. in front of the White House. The purpose of the vigil is to support persecuted Christians and religious freedom in Iraq.
The prayer event begins with the observance of "The Rogation of the Ninevites," which is among the oldest of Christian traditions. The Rogation has its ancient roots in the Prophet Jonah and is observed by Assyrian, Chaldean, and Syriac Christians in Iraq and around the globe.
