O Lord God,
Your Son Jesus Christ suffered and died for us.
In his resurrection He restores life and peace in all creation.
Comfort, we pray, all victims of intolerance and those oppressed by their fellow humans.
Remember in your kingdom those who have died.
Lead the oppressors towards compassion
and give hope to the suffering.
Through the same Jesus Christ our Lord.
Prayer from the Church of England
"According to Ann Bulwalda, the executive director of the Jubilee campaign: "Approximately 60 percent of the world's Christians that were killed for their faith [(in 2013) were] in Northern Nigeria.'"
The details of this attack are brutal, and very difficult to take. You may read much more at Islamic Militants Hack to Death, Brutally Murder 106 Residents of Christian Farming Village in Nigeria, by Morgan Lee, at The Christian Post.
