In Niger, radical Islamists burned over 45 churches, looted Christian homes, and killed 10 people and injured 200 in retaliation for the publication of cartoons of the Prophet Muhammed by the French magazine Charlie Hebdo. Church leaders have vowed to rebuild. Pray that:

  • the Holy Spirit would comfort brothers and sisters in Christ who have lost loved ones and whose homes and churches were destroyed (Matthew 19:29)
  • that the Gospel would spread throughout Niger, including to those who attacked Christians (John 3:16) (Matthew 5:44)
  • peace during efforts to rebuild the churches (Matt. 5:9)
