God calls us to bear one another’s burdens and we take this as our call to action (Galatians 6:2). Anglican Aid is working with local church partners, giving aid to respond to urgent needs and rebuild lives as well as providing Bible training to strengthen churches.

The Bishop of Zonkwa Diocese, Rt. Rev Jacob Kwashi, was the team leader in the distribution of the food and roofing sheets to villages in southern Kaduna. “No organisation, not even the government, provided any relief to the thousands of people that were displaced by these senseless attacks,” said Bishop Kwashi. “This has given us hope as well as assurances of the prayers of our brothers and sisters. We are grateful.”
Mrs Lawan Andimi was given a grinding machine to help feed her six children. Her husband, a Christian leader, had been kidnapped and killed by Boko Haram in 2020. She said, “Please give my gratitude to the brothers and sisters in Australia who have made this sacrifice.”
A prayer for persecuted Christians
Eternal Father, almighty shepherd of your people,
You have promised that those who follow Jesus will be persecuted. We pray for your children around the world who are suffering mistreatment, imprisonment, loss of possessions, and threats of death for their allegiance to you. By your mighty power keep them faithful to you. Be their shield and defence, their refuge and their stronghold.
Shelter them under the shadow of your wings, that they may not fear their enemies, and help us to uphold them in prayer, that together we may walk in the light of the resurrection of Jesus Christ, and not be ashamed to confess him as Lord, to the glory of your name, Amen.
