Prayer for Persecuted Christians in Nigeria

ICC Note:

Nigerian Christians are asking for Christians around the world to pray for the violence to stop in Nigeria's middle belt region. Thousands have been killed in attacks by the extremist group Boko Haram, many of the victims Christians. Recently, eight were killed as they worshiped at St. Rita's Catholic Church in Nigeria. When will there be and end to the violence? 

11/10/2012 Nigeria (ChristianToday) - Nigerian Anglicans are asking Christians around the world to pray and fast for an end to violence in the country.

Northern Nigeria has been hit by a wave of deadly attacks on churches, mostly blamed on Islamist militant group Boko Haram.

At least seven people were killed and dozens injured in a suicide bombing during mass at a Catholic church in Kaduna last week.

Archbishop Ikechi Nwachukwu Nwosu told the Anglican Consultative Council (ACC) meeting in New Zealand that the situation for Christians in Nigeria was "terrible".

He appealed to Christians to lobby their governments to intervene in the situation in Nigeria.

Christians in the country are uniting in a week of prayer and fasting starting on 12 November and they are asking believers around the world to join with them.
