ISIS claimed responsibility for an attack on a Christian family during a gathering to celebrate Easter. Masked men with guns arrived on a motorbike and began shooting. The attackers then failed in an attempt to enter the house, but family members found the bodies of their loved ones on the ground shortly after. ISIS claimed that a “covert unit” had succeeded in targeting the Christians.
How to Pray: Pray for comfort and peace for those who have suffered loss, especially Shama who is now widowed with seven children. Pray for safety, restoration, and provision for the children. Pray for authorities to bring justice to those responsible for attacks and wisdom to protect those targeted by ISIS.
