Peaceful Muslims in Northern Nigeria

Peaceful Muslims have attacked Christians and police in Northern Nigeria the past few days.

That police stations, a prison and a customs post were attacked along with churches tell me that this is an attack on the whole society there, at least on those who aren’t peaceful Muslims.

Do join me in praying for the targets of these thugs.

MORE: I should add that the targets of these thugs likely include Muslims who aren’t as extremist as they. So do also pray for Muslims who really are peaceful.

Pray for the thugs too. Remember what Jesus himself said. Also remember what happened to Saul of Tarsus. Saul likely presided over the stoning of Stephen,the first martyr, and a number of the men and women he arrested were likely stoned too. Yet he met Christ on the road to Damascus and became a changed man. Pray that they also will meet Christ, the one whom they are persecuting.
