Countries to pray for this Christmas

From Christian Today

 

Christian Solidarity Worldwide has issued a prayer list to help people stand in prayerful support of Christians around the world who are under pressure for their faith.

 

Iran

 

A wave of arrests of Christians usually occurs over the Christmas period. Church services are raided and Christians interrogated about their church activities.

 

Pray that Christmas services would be allowed to take place in peace, and that unjustly jailed Christians would be released.

Nigeria

 

Christians in northern and central Nigeria are frequently attacked by Islamist militia groups, including the terrorist group Boko Haram and its offshoot Ansaru. Churches are particularly vulnerable during Christmas and New Year celebrations.

 

Pray that any terrorist groups planning violence would be discovered, and their plans would fail.
