Pray for a Christian Village Threatened by a Neighboring Community

[259] prayers in [23] nations have been posted for Christian Village.

 Christians who have already faced numerous hardships because of war and Islamic extremists and are now being threatened by a neighboring Muslim village. In the past when Muslims from the nearby village seized the Christians’ property and land, the Iraqi government stepped in to evict the Muslims. But the Muslim villagers are now threatening the Christians again. Pray for the safety of the Christians, who have little means of protection. Pray also that the Christians will love their neighbors and be a testament of Christ’s love and forgiveness.

Give abundantly to this village the things they need, which you know well, and let their testimony be blazing and pure, that the other village may be saved.
