Lately, there has been a lot in the news regarding Nigeria about defeat, frustration, and loss. But I found something today– something that we can all celebrate, even if it’s a “small” thing to celebrate.
Late the night of Friday the 15th, the Nigerian army drove away Boko Haram from the town of Marte! An uncounted number of Boko Haram fighters were killed, and seven of their trucks were destroyed! This is no doubt a relief and a morale boost for these men and women, fighting the ongoing battle with Boko Haram.
It is a small thing in the huge battle against evil in Northern Nigeria, but it is a victory worth celebrating. It is important to celebrate with those who celebrate (Romans 12:15)– and it’s just plain fun!!!
May those in Boko Haram turn to Jesus before it is too late; and may the Nigerian military continue to succeed. For now, let’s raise a glass to all that Jesus is doing in Nigeria! 🔹
We thank You and praise You for all that You are doing in Marte, Nigeria. Thank You for the victories You give to those who are fighting so hard; thank You for lifting them up and strengthening them.
We pray now that You would keep the morale of the soldiers up. In Your Name we pray, Amen.”
Do you know Jesus?
He came to this earth 3,000 years ago to save us from our sin. Learn more about what He did, and why it is relevant to you, here.
Please pray for…
- The continued success of the Nigerian army.
- For salvation for Boko Haram members.
- The demise of Boko Haram.
- The protection of towns of Christians and Muslims in Northern Nigeria.
Thank you for all your prayers and support!
