Boko Haram Again Attacks Village of VOM-Supported Pastor

[230] prayers in [15] nations have been posted for Pastor Matthias's Village.

Boko Haram fighters have again attacked the village of Pastor Matthias Yuguda, a VOM-supported front-line worker in Adamawa State, Nigeria. The Islamists shot and wounded an 80-year-old man during the attack, and stole food and personal items from villagers. In a previous raid, the attackers burned Pastor Matthias’s home as well as a village church. Christians in the village live in constant danger, not knowing when the next attack will come. Pray that the villagers will experience the true peace that only Christ can provide. Pray for their protection and that their faith will be emboldened by this ongoing persecution.

  • Dear Lord God, we pray fervently for our brothers and sisters in Pastor Matthias's Village, they have endured much. Jesus who "is able" defeated death on the cross and left his peace for us. 2 Kings 6:17 we pray as Elisha prayed "O Lord, open their eyes so they may see. Hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around." Defend Your people Lord!
