Prayer about suicide bombings in Damboa, Nigeria  Photo credit: Reuters
Heavenly Father, we pray today for the suicide bombings that took place Saturday in Damboa, Nigeria. We pray for the families who lost loved ones. Comfort them in their time of sorrow. We ask that you save the lives of those who were severely injured and heal them completely. Father, the Nigerian people desperately need your help. This region continues to be a primary target for attacks by Islamist militant groups, and there are tens of thousands of people living in refugee camps. Guide the actions of the government in their attempts to stabilize the region. Bring victory to the military as they continue their efforts to drive out militants from the area. Father, we can only imagine the fear that the residents of Damboa must live with as they anticipate the next attack. We pray that you bring security and peace to the region. Help them to know that you are with them always, and give them hope as they face each new day. We pray in Jesus’ name, amen.
