Dear Beloved Brothers and Sisters, May the God of all Comfort, comfort you in this heavy affliction. May it help you to know Christians are shocked by what you have endured, feeling with you part of the terrible sorrow. My prayer for you is thatJesus Himself will manifest His tender love for you and your daughters in a way that can never be taken away from you. Lord, uphold these families in this trial so that their faith will not fail, assure them theirgirls will be protected, and brought home.
In 2020, pledge to pray weekly for Christians who share your faith but not your freedom.
