Though religious tensions have been increasing in Sri Lanka, they have largely been tensions between radical Buddhist nationalists and their agenda against both Muslims and Christians. Now the Islamic State is taking responsibility for suicide bombings on Easter Sunday which killed more than 300 people in tourist hotels and a well attended church. Pray that many people in Sri Lanka will have their eyes opened to the terrible agenda of religious hatred. Pray that the love, comfort and healing that only Jesus can bring will touch the lives of many people. Ask God to bring glory to His Name in the midst of tragedy (The Bible, John 14:13).
