Christians in northern Nigeria maintain a bold witness for Christ despite violent attacks by Boko Haram and Islamic Fulani militants. We can help them stand firm in faith by praying for them.
Here are some specific ways to pray for persecuted Christians in Nigeria:
- Pray for the encouragement of Nigerian believers suffering repeated attacks. Pray that they will withstand persecution and persevere in faith.
- Pray for the comfort of Nigerian Christians who have experienced great loss in these attacks.
- Pray for the safety of Nigerian Christians as they share the gospel with Muslims.
- Pray that those ministering to Nigerian believers will have renewed strength and access to needed resources.
- Pray that the persecutors of Nigerian Christians will come to faith in Jesus Christ.
