Pray for the family of Rev Lawan Andimi, a senior Christian leader in Adamawa state, Nigeria, who was kidnapped and killed by militant group Boko Haram earlier this year. Praise God for his strong faith: in a video released by his captors, he said he was ‘in the hands of God’.

Prayer Shield

29 March 2020 – Indonesia

Praise God for the powerful witness of congregations such as Surabaya Central Pentecostal Church who continued to meet immediately after the 2018 bombings in Indonesia. Pray their determination to remain faithful to Christ will cause many to want to know more about Him.
