Please Pray...

On Life with Lynnie (LwL), there is something I feel you need to know about.

Here is an article by that is entitled, Seminarian Found Dad After Suspected Boko Haram Kidnapping

Did you read that article?  In case you couldn't, I will share it with you (I copied/pasted):

02/07/2020 Nigeria (International Christian Concern) – Nigerian Christians are mourning the death of 18-year-old seminarian, Michael Nnadi, who was kidnapped along with three others studying at Good Shepherd Seminary in Kaduna.
The three other seminarians, Pius Kanwai, Peter Umenukor and Stephen Amos, were released near the end of January. One of them was found along the side of Kaduna-Abuja Highway badly injured. It was on this same highway that Nnadi’s body was found. This stretch of road has been marked as an “unspeakable nightmare for Nigerians” with bandits and kidnappers roaming the region.
Bishop Matthew Hassan Kukah announced in a statement, “with a very heavy heart, I wish to inform you that our dear son, Nnadi was murdered by the bandits on a date we cannot confirm. He and the wife of a doctor were arbitrarily separated from the group and killed.”
The woman with whom he was found, Bola Ataga, was kidnapped from her home in Kaduna along with her two children on January 24. After her body was found, her children’s whereabouts remained unknown but the ransom being demanded has reportedly been lowered. Ataga’s family was unable to pay the original ransom demanded.
Nnadi’s father, Joel Usman, has called on believers to pray for the “great distress” they are facing in Nigeria in a recent Facebook post. Archbishop of Lagos, Alfred Martins “For a while now, many Nigerians from different walks of life have been calling for a revamping of the security arrangements in the nation even if it means the replacement of the Heads of the various Security Agencies in order to give room for new ideas”.

Even though I just read that article and shared it with you, it was posted February 7, 2020.

It truly made me sad, because fellow Christians who live in Nigeria, Africa... are being persecuted and/or murdered.

Even though this article didn't say that the Christians were being persecuted and/or murdered by Muslims... that is how it has been happening... as I mentioned in the past.

Yes, in the past, other articles... and some people I met, living here in the city where I live, told everyone that it was Muslims who were murdering Christians.

After all, years ago... one lady told me that she was from Africa... and had been hiding... to stay away...  because she saw... Muslims were murdering everyone in that area she was in... including her family.

Yes, Christians have been persecuted by Muslims, because they are Christian and have refused to become Islamic/Muslim.

However, those Christians who died, were to be blessed by God... for they would spend eternity in Heaven.

Thinking about that, made me think about Matthew 5:10, "Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.".

Amen!  Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

In that article, I hope you recall reading that believers were wanted... to pray.

I pray.

Do you pray?

If you are a believer and haven't prayed yet, please... pray.

If you pray, I believe God will bless you..

Thank you!

Thank You, Lord!

Until next time...
