Over the past two weeks, Nigerian Muslim militants have killed 70 people, destroyed 15 villages, and displaced 20,000 people, reports Christian Today. The attacks were on the primarily Christian Irigwe ethnic group.
This is nothing new for Christians in Nigeria as Muslims have waged an all-out war to root out Christians from the area. A new report by the International Society for Civil Liberties and Rule of Law found at least 43,000 Nigerian Christians have been killed between July 2009 and July 2021.
Please pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ in Nigeria who constantly face severe persecution.
Romans 8:35-37 asks, “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written: ‘For Your sake we are killed all day long; We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.’ Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.”
