Persecution Post – Nigeria

Persecution Post – Nigeria

Pray for our brothers and sisters in Nigeria! They are undergoing intense persecution and martyrdom. Remember those who are standing in the midst of genocide, rape and deprivation. Remember those who shine His Life at the peril of their own.

May the grace and the presence of God be their portion, may they know of His deliverance and Peace in the midst of the brutality of the ungodly. May His Love hold them and deliver them from fear knowing the heavenly prize which awaits all those who are faithful in such circumstances. May your comfort Lord fill them in the loss of family and friends, may their tears be felt by all those who call upon your name.

The Golden Rule of Prayer…
That we would pray for them AS
we would desire them to pray for us!

Life for Christians in Nigeria
“Nearly all Christians in northeastern Nigeria have lost family members due to the violence perpetrated by the terrorist groups. Entire congregations have been displaced, and many pastors have been forced to leave the region. Being active in the church looks much different than it did 15 years ago. Today, it takes great courage and faith to openly worship and serve Christ. Thousands of Christians remain in camps designated for internally displaced people. With few schools able to operate because of the violence, families are concerned about their children’s education. Life is a constant struggle and, in some places, it’s even difficult to find food”

Voice of the Martyrs

May the Lord knit us more deeply by His Spirit to His people all over the world!

  1. I believe that our Lord is slowly allowing us to see that persecution is spreading in our world. Christianity is now being seen, (by more than we care to think, who are in the progressive movement, as a superstitious uneducated unscientific and immortal scourge that is opposed to making our world great.
    We must remember that the world is the enemy of Christianity. Christianity in the US was blessed by God because of our Constitution and the Bible’s influence on our country, but that document has been watered down to eliminate the Judeo/Christian impact of it’s content. The world about which we are warned in scripture, has been but even more so today is our enemy. When you come too close to the fire it will burn you. Truly we must uphold the persecuted church, even as they are prepared to do for us.
    These things are real, yet, I have Christians who tell me that to say these things is fear mongering, and not helping with unity among Christians. It may be possible to join with the world, and avoid persecution, but at what cost?

    1. A great cost…
