This Sunday is the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church. A five minute video on persecution in Nigeria from VoiceOfTheMartyrsUSA.
From the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church resources:
Almighty God, we cry to you on behalf of our suffering Christian family in Nigeria.
We especially remember families who are grieving today: be for them a father to the fatherless and a defender of widows.
We cry to You Lord: bring justice and righteousness to Nigeria, give strength and hope to Your people, enabling them to shine as lights in the darkness.
In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
