Nigeria (Christian Herald)
For many years, Christians throughout the world have experienced a spike in persecution as the Christmas season approaches. Unfortunately, this trend continued for a family in Nigeria as two adult brothers were killed by Fulani militants in late November. As the militants began shooting and the family attempted to flee, the two brothers were fatally shot. The mother of the family was also kidnapped during the ambush, but was released two weeks later following the payment of a ransom.
- Pray for comfort for the family as they mourn the loss of the two brothers.
- Pray for the mother as she recovers from the trauma of her kidnapping.
- Pray for the Nigerian government to take stronger action to prevent Fulani violence.
