Over 40 people were killed in a coordinated series of bomb and gun attacks on churches and the security services in five Nigerian states on Christmas Day. The majority of the fatalities occurred at a church in Madalla, near the capital, Abuja; around 35 worshippers were killed when explosives were hurled at the congregation as they left the service. Militant Islamist group Boko Haram claimed responsibility for the attacks. It is the second consecutive year that the group has staged anti-Christian violence at Christmas. Pray for all those who have lost loved ones as a result of Boko Haram’s terrorist campaign, that they will know the Lord Jesus as their Wonderful Counsellor and Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6).
