Pray for Christians Suffering from Recent Attacks

[260] prayers in [15] nations have been posted for Kitibu Christian villagers.

On Jan. 16, Fulani herdsmen attacked the village of Kitibu, Taraba state, in northern Nigeria, killing more than 100 people. They burned more than 1,000 homes, some with people still inside, and many people are still missing. Most of the village’s 7,000 residents are now scattered throughout Taraba state in camps for internally displaced people. This is the latest attack in a wave of similar raids carried out recently by Fulani herdsmen and members of Boko Haram. Pray for the comfort of those who lost family members and friends. Pray that those who lost homes and businesses will find permanent shelter and sources of income. Pray that those who carried out these attacks will repent of their sin and follow Jesus.

  • Father let these believers be of the same mind, maintaining the same love, united in spirit, intent on one purpose. Doing nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regarding one another as more important than themselves. Having the same attitude which was in Christ. Let them rejoice in the Lord always.
