Last week, the terrorist group Boko Haram attacked the city of Baga and surrounding villages in Nigeria. Around 2000 people died and several churches were burned in what is being declared the deadliest terrorist act by Boko Haram to date.
The Christian Post reports, “Nigeria recently found itself at No. 10 on persecution watchdog group Open Doors’ list of countries where Christians are most heavily targeted for their faith, largely because of the actions of Boko Haram.”
As we continue to see evil and violence in our world, let us remember to pray for those who are suffering, to participate in actions of justice, to be advocates for the marginalized, and to raise our voices for those who are no longer able to speak. Lord, in your mercy!
