Pray for the Church in Nigeria.
Muslim persecution of Christians in Nigeria has been going on for years. But it has become more severe in recent weeks. One bishop has been murdered. Another’s family was viciously attacked by assailants looking for the bishop (who was out of the country at the time).
Now Nigerian Muslims are using the Mohammed cartoons as an excuse to kill Christians and destroy their churches and shops. Some have been killed in their churches.
My REC parish made a special point to pray for the Church in Nigeria yesterday. I ask that you do the same.
UPDATE: Archbishop Akinola has released a statement.
