Prayer for north-eastern Nigeria

“Father God, we ask You to bring peace to north-eastern Nigeria, where the murderous violence of Boko Haram jihadist reached new depths in the first week of January, as they attacked the city of Baga. We are grieved to know that the number of people killed  could be as many as 2000-mainly women, children and elderly.

Please comfort those who mourn, and help our Christian brothers and sisters, who are so often targeted by Boko Haram, to be channels of peace and hope to all affected by the violence. We ask this in the Name of Your Son Jesus, the Prince of Peace.”
