The Tragedy of Baga

The 'Charlie Hebdo' murders were horrible. But the ongoing murderous rampage of Boko Haram in Nigeria recently included a massacre of 2000 innocent people.

Until a few hours ago, the Nigerian government, apparently wanting to portray an image of stability to voters in the run up to an election, has been shy about even acknowledging the instability caused by the terrorist group.

And the international community's focus on Paris has kept the horrors in Nigeria off most radars.

Please pray for the people of Nigeria, asking God to give them safety and peace.

Please pray for the government of Nigeria, that it might protect its citizens.

Please pray for other governments of the world that they might provide appropriate help.
