Let us pray. Almighty God, we are grieved that hundreds of Christians in Nigeria were slaughtered this week, as the Muslim jihadist group Boko Haram has vowed to “eradicate Christianity” with church bombings. We pray because we are part of the same body, the Body of Christ (Hebrews 13:3). We are called to “bless” and “do good” to the very ones who would break both our bodies and our hearts (Matthew 5:44). By faith, we lift up your Church and those who would destroy your Church and commit them both to your love and justice, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
