PERSECUTION of Christians is on the rise in Africa, especially central and northern states of Africa such as Nigeria. Please pray for believers in these countries who are being threatened by extremist jihadist forces bent on persecuting and eradicating the Christians from their nations. Pray for the terrorists themselves, as many will become Christians if we earnestly pray and intercede for them. They think they are doing God a service by killing Christians. In this great deception, they do not realize that they are going to an everlasting hell and taking many people with them. So please pray for them. Prayer to the Lord Jesus changes things.
