Release International Prayer Shields, Columbia and Nigeria


Thank God for the bravery of Christians in Colombia who put themselves at great risk to transport Bibles into remote rebel-held areas.


Colombia’s rebel groups target pastors in particular because of their influence in their communities. Ask God to protect church leaders in dangerous areas, give them wisdom and renew their strength.


Continue to pray for the church in Colombia, especially in the so-called ‘red zones’ of the north and west where guerrillas and paramilitary forces are active. These groups violently persecute Christians.


Pray that the international community will wake up to the persecution of Christians in Nigeria, rather than dismissing the violence as land disputes, and put pressure on the Nigerian Government to take firm action.


Praise God for the overcoming faith of Naomi. Widowed young, she and her five children were forced to flee their home in Borno state after Boko Haram attacked. They spent two years living rough, then as refugees in Cameroon, before returning to Nigeria. Release associate ministries now support them in Plateau state.


Praise God for the release in Nigeria of Professor John Fatokun of Anchor University in Lagos. Fulani militants captured him as he travelled from Jos to Nasarawa state. ‘My faith remains unshakeable,’ Prof Fatokun said.


Pray for the families of two church leaders killed in Niger state recently: Rev John Gbaakan Yaji of St Anthony’s parish in Gulu and Pastor Jeremiah Ibrahim who led an evangelical church in Kobwa Kuta, Nigeria.
