There is an ongoing genocide in Burundi, Africa and you can do something to stop it.
The news in recent months and more specifically these last days have reported deaths of dozens of people in the streets. 

The Church around the world should not and must not be silent at this hour. We have to voice out clearly to the world what is going on in Burundi, Africa and do not fear anything! Violence, unrest, persecution and killings must stop in Burundi!

Check these links for recent news: 

We must pray and intercede for the nation! 220,000 Burundian refugees have fled the violence to neighboring Rwanda, Tanzania, Uganda and Congo.

Please, ask people to pray. Share this article with your networks. 

This coming days ask people in your church to pray. Please, take some time during the services to pray for this desperate call. Let us pray for reconciliation and peace to take place immediately in Burundi and in the region. Let us pray for the authorities so they may follow Justice and Righteousness. Let us declare in the name of Jesus: no more violence, it is enough. We call Peace, Shalom in the land.

This is our prayer and declaration: “Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall; JESUS lifts his voice, the earth melts. The Lord Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress. Come and see what the Lord has done, the desolation he has brought on the earth. He makes wars CEASE IN BURUNDI to the ends of the earth. He breaks the bow and shatters the spear; he burns the shields with fire. He says, “Be still BURUNDI and know that I am God; I will be exalted among Hutus and Tutsis, among you all; I will be exalted in the THE GREAT LAKES.” The Lord Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.” Psalm 46:6-11 

For the suffering Church and all people In Burundi
