Lord, today we pray for Central African Republic (CAR), where Fulani herdsmen and Muslim extremists significantly persecute Christians. Lord, we grieve those who have been killed for their faith in this land. We are distraught that your children need to flee their villages and are denied access to farming fields. We pray for CAR's leaders to correct these problems. We pray for the Fulani herdsmen and Islamic terrorists to be moved by the testimony of your children, seeing you in their countenances even as they suffer. Reach the persecutors' hearts. We do pray for your children to have courage as they deal with these trials. Give them wisdom about when to flee and when to take a stand. Help them recognize opportunities to share you with others, and strengthen them to make the most of those opportunities. In Jesus' name we pray, amen.
