Join us in daily prayer
Prayer for today:
After a recent fact-finding visit to Nigeria, Baroness (Caroline) Cox and Rev. David Thomas estimated that at least 7,000 Christians have been killed in northern Nigeria in the last five years, with Christian pastors and community heads specifically targeted when Islamist Fulani militias attack. Despite the catchphrase “Your land or your blood”, religion and ideology appear to play a key part, in addition to the Fulani herdsmen‘s stated desire for pasture. The attackers often shout “Allahu Akbar”, “Destroy the infidels” and “Wipe out the infidels”, and they have destroyed hundreds of church buildings. Pray to our God, who makes wars cease, that He will bring an end to this violence against His people (Psalm 46:9) and that they will not give way to the temptation to retaliate.
