Fr Solomon Calls For Prayer

Rev Fr Solomon Patrick Zaku, the National Director of the Pontifical Mission Societies Nigeria, is calling for our prayers and support amid the recent attack on Christmas Eve, claiming over 200 lives and saw 37 villages razed to the ground, leaving many people homeless.

“The insecurity in Nigeria is worrisome. No part of the country is safe. It is making missionary work difficult in the country. The attack on Christmas Eve was barbaric and senseless,” commented Fr Solomon.

The ongoing conflict that continues to tear the country apart is highlighting the need to find long-term solutions for peacebuilding, through dialogue.

At this dark time, which he hopes will reach the hearts of many and raise awareness of the seriousness of the situation in Nigeria:

“There is a serious humanitarian crisis in the area now. I call on you all to support us with your prayers so that the insecurity and persecution of Christians in Nigeria will come to an end. Your prayers and support will be greatly appreciated.”

In the memories of the people who lost their lives on Christmas Eve, Fr Solomon is offering this prayer, which he hopes, will be heard worldwide.

“For the victims of the massacre on Christmas Eve in Nigeria, that God may console the family and friends and grant them the fortitude to bear the loss. Amen”
