Dear God & Father, I pray for Leah Sharibu, Alice Nggadah, any other abduction victims & their families: Protect, provide for, comfort, strengthen, encourage & guide them. May they stay strong in faith, hope & love, committed to Christ. Bring many of those involved in these abductions & other forms of violence, to repentance. May their changed hearts & lives bring an end to these human rights abuses. May Christians in the region sand firm in their faith, growing in numbers & maturity. Amen.
