Nigeria: Praise God for the revival in Gambo after the martyrdom of nine believers.

Father, I thank You for Your loving care for our brothers and sisters in Nigeria. Thank You for their boldness and willingness to lay down their lives for Your sake. I pray that You would continue to uphold whatever family members they left behind. I pray that You would give them not only the food, shelter, and medicine they need to survive, but also give them hope and joy for the days to come, for a crushed spirit, who can bear? Lord I pray that You would use those revitalized believers and new converts who came to know You deeply following the deaths of nine of Your children to bless the widows and orphans. I thank You for using the tragedy of those nine deaths to breathe new life into the people of Gambo. I pray that it would be a revival that would not end, but rather one that would grow and blossom, bearing fruit of spiritual maturity, additional salvations, and local outreaches to the hurting communities around them. Let them be known by their love for one another and for their love for the lost and hurting in that region. Glorify Yourself in Your people and make Yourself known through them, in them, and to them. Continue to safeguard them in the shadow of Your wings and uphold them with Your mighty right hand. In Jesus’ holy name, Amen.
