URGENT - Prayers Needed for Jos
Please join me in prayer RIGHT NOW for the people in Jos who are in a 24 hour curfew after violence erupted again today. People out during the curfew will be shot on sight, so they are basically trapped wherever they happened to be earlier today when this was instituted. Many of them do not have enough food to last beyond a day or two, if that, and see smoke from the burning buildings. I asked one of my friends if she still hears gunshots (4 pm their time), and she said "we are used to it" because it's continual. Fears are high, especially for those who've been traumatized by past violence. Please pass this prayer request along to any prayer chains and people that you think might add to our chorus of prayers. Peace and protection please!
