Praise and Prayer

Pray: In the northern state of Zamfara, the authorities are threatening to demolish 14 churches, claiming that the state has too many Christian worship centers, according to a report from Nigeria Online News. Zamfara state has been prominent in promoting the Islamic sharia law in Nigeria. Less than five percent of the population is Christian. Pray for the church in Nigeria, as it faces continued challenges by the push for sharia law in many states. Pray for the Nigerian government, that the constitutional freedoms will be respected and enforced throughout the country.
