Pray for the Persecuted Church - May 30, 2018
As a result of Boko Haram targeting everyone and everything that is not "true Islam", tens of thousands of families in Nigeria have been eliminated or torn apart. In Boko Haram's efforts to create a territory in Nigeria that is purely Islamic, there are now nearly 50,000 widows and more than 52,000 orphans in Borno State alone.
According to the June issue of Voice of the Martyrs, "From January thru September 2017, 84 children were used as suicide bombers, four times the number for all of 2016. Fifty-six of the bombers were reportedly girls, most of whom were younger than 15."
Please pray fervently against this incomprehensible evil and for the parents and family members who are being impacted and live in constant fear of violence they may sustain. Though we live worlds apart, our prayers - your prayers - do reach around the globe and make a difference to these courageous believers.
"My prayer is not that you take them out of this world but that you protect them from the evil one." John 17:15
