Praying for peace in Nigeria

Yesterday gunmen opened fire on a church service in Nigeria, killing six and injuring much of the congregation.  This is not the first of such attacks and raises concerns about the peace and stability in Nigeria between the Christian and Muslim people.

Let us pray
Dear Lord, we bring before you today all those killed, injured and bereaved by the acts of violence in the name of religion in Nigeria.  We ask that you bring understanding, peace and restraint to the country.

Further attacks have been reported across Nigeria with figures around of over 150 deaths; please continue to pray for peace and understanding and acceptance.

It is only God that can deliver our country "Nigeria". We all need to pray for all this deadly bombing to stop. God help us.
