NIGERIA: Suicide Attack on Church in Jos, Central Plateau
A 'Church of Christ' in the central Nigerian city of Jos was attacked today by a suicide bomber who drove a car packed with explosives into it, killing at least two and wounding 38. This was followed by a riot by Christian youths in which two Muslims died. It is suspected that Islamist group Boko Haram are behind the attacks.
Please pray for the injured and bereaved on both “sides” in this latest atrocity, and that here would be no more violence. Please pray for the youths who rioted. Please remember all our Nigerian brothers and sisters in your prayers in this time of very great uncertainty and confusion in their nation.

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? As it is written, For your sake we are being killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered. No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
