Pray for a Church Recovering from an Islamist Attack

[266] prayers in [16] nations have been posted for Recently Attacked Church.

Islamic militants threw Molotov cocktails through windows of the Evangelical Christian Baptist Church in Kaji Say early on Jan. 3. Although the inside of the church was badly damaged by the resulting fire, an open Bible on the altar survived the flames even though the altar cloth was destroyed. In addition, firefighters discovered several bottles full of gasoline that didn’t ignite. Viewing these as signs from God, church members have been encouraged to stand firm in their faith. Pray for church members as they recover from this attack. Pray that the surrounding community sees their resilience and Christ-like character as they move forward. Praise God for his protection of the church members, and pray that those who caused the fire will repent and seek forgiveness.

  • May each pray Psalm 51:
    Create a pure heart in me, O God,
    and put a new and loyal spirit in me.
    Do not banish me from your presence;
    do not take your holy spirit away from me.
    Give me again the joy that comes from your salvation,
    and make me willing to obey you.
    Then I will teach sinners your commands,
    and they will turn back to you
