What a sad news! A twin blast at a bus park in Nyanya near Abuja, the capital city of Nigeria which has left about 71 dead and over 100 injured(Media Reports).
As I am sitting right here on this seat, I can’t still believed that terrorism can thieves well in my beloved country, a place once known to be peaceful. Thousands killed, many raped, homes destroyed, dreams shattered etc.
I am indeed grief-stricken. My hearts go out to the bereaved, especially those who have been orphaned and widowed and those now deprived of their bread winners by this evil act. I share in their pain, their anguish and their loss and pray that those behind their grief must not escape justice.
Then, the Church must rise to this occasion. We must not fold our hands and watch this evil act. Yes, the gate of hell must not prevail. The Church must pray against this evil. The Scripture recorded this:
“So Peter was kept in prison, but the church was earnestly praying to God for him” Acts 12:5(NIV).
There is power in prayers and God is still in the business of making the impossible possible.
Let’s pray for the dead, the injured, the bereaved, the innocent victims of terrorist violence.
Bless them all, Jesus. Amen.
