Please Join Us Today in Prayer
We believe in the power of prayer to heal sickness, to provide for families, to surround believers with a hedge of protection, and to change lives for the better. God’s Word tells us that all believers can go boldly unto the throne of grace in times of need, whether those needs be our own or those of others. Please join us in praying for others around the world.
Who We’re Praying For Today
Nigeria: The Shalom Center, a long-awaited trauma center in Nigeria from Open Doors, started operations in March 2019 after it was delayed by a year due to challenges with security in the area. The center is intended as a place where people who have suffered various kinds of trauma can come for extended care to find peace. Since opening on March 1, the center has trained trainers and provided weekly in-depth care to survivors of violent attacks. Pray for grace, wisdom and perseverance for Rauta, the center’s hired staff counselor.
Nigeria: Pray for two Nigerian Christian villages that were attacked by Fulani militants.
On January 8, militant Fulani herdsmen killed 13 Christians in Plateau state. Approximately 20 herdsmen surrounded the village of Kulben at 8:00 pm, descending with guns and forcing the villagers to flee into the bush. In total, 13 Christian villagers were killed and three others were wounded. The victims are members of the Church of Christ in Nations.
On the same day four students were kidnapped from a Catholic seminary in neighboring Kaduna state. Unknown armed bandits shot sporadically at The Good Shepherd Catholic Major Seminary late in the evening. Although no injuries were reported, four students were missing in the wake of the incident.
