A Church Attack in Burkina Faso

On December 2nd, 2019, a church in Burkina Faso was attacked just as Christians were exiting the church. Women were told to go back into the church; the men and boys were slaughtered one by one, as cloths were put over their faces. In all, 14 people died (source).

I heard about this attack from my pastor (find the video here). Hearing and reading about this tragedy is heavy. A church full of people who love each other was attacked, lives ripped away from those who treasured them most. And it reminds me: we truly are blessed, not only to be able to follow Jesus, but to spend time being with other believers.

One of the faithful who survived the attacks asked that we would pray against the terrorism, and for the safety of their people. It’s true: prayer should be our first resort, not our last one.

With that being said, will you pray with me over those who, almost a week later, are grieving and mourning? They must be lifted up in prayer; let’s let our brothers and sisters in Burkina Faso know that they are loved.

Do you know Jesus?

Christ came to this messy, dark, painful world to save us from our sin. Learn more about Jesus and why He did what He did, here.

Please pray for (find the prayer sheet here)

Thank you for your prayers!
