Release International: Easter, Good Friday, Nigeria, Sri Lanka

Easter Saturday

In the stillness and sadness following Jesus’ death, His disciples must have struggled with their sense of loss. Ask God to comfort those who are still trying to make sense of bereavement and loss as a result of persecution.


Good Friday

As we remember the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross, let’s remember all those who have died for His name’s sake in recent years. Thank God that they are now united with Him in heaven.


Sri Lanka

Please pray for our Christian family in Sri Lanka as they prepare to mark the second anniversary of the Easter Sunday suicide bombings targeting churches and hotels in Colombo, Negombo and Batticaloa.


Nigeria

Pray that God will build unity in the church in Nigeria so that it might be a beacon of light throughout the nation.


Nigeria

Please pray for God’s protection over our partners in Nigeria, courageous believers such as Archbishop Ben Kwashi, Rev Hassan John and Mark Lipdo of the Stefanos Foundation who serve persecuted Christians and speak up for their rights.


Nigeria

In Nigeria, Plateau state Governor Simon Lalong recently said: ‘Innocent people cannot be killed without anybody being apprehended and put to trial.’ Pray for an end to the killings and that those responsible will be brought to justice.


Nigeria

In Nigeria, Christian community leader Bulus Chuwang Janka was lured out of his home in Rasat village, Plateau, with a phone call – then murdered. Pray for his wife, Chundung, and their son, who saw him die.
