Pray for Christians in Areas Controlled by Paramilitary Groups

[237] prayers in [22] nations have been posted for Christians.

Since the signing of a peace agreement between the Colombian government and FARC rebels, members of a paramilitary group have begun taking over some towns and villages. The paramilitary group has warned that any support of guerrilla groups in these disputed regions will lead to massacres. Some murders have already occurred, causing villagers to flee their homes in fear of further violence. Please pray that Christians in these areas will remain strong in the Lord and continue to share the gospel.
