Join us in daily prayer
Prayer for today:
Islamist militants who seized the town of Marawi in the southern Philippines last year targeted non-Muslim civilians for extrajudicial executions; almost all the victims were Christians. They were often asked to recite the shahada (Islamic creed) or respond to Muslim greetings, and those who did not were killed. Praise God that the town was liberated after five months, and pray that the bereaved families will find comfort in the Lord, particularly by remembering that their loved ones died for Christ.
