Lord Jesus Christ, we pray today for the “Chibok girls” of Nigeria, kidnapped from their school in Chibok during the night of 14-15 April 2014. You know, O Father, the ordeal that these mainly Christian girls suffered, as they were forcibly converted to Islam and made to marry jihadists. We pray especially for the 100 or so who are still in captivity. Be close to them, speak to them in their hearts, reminding them of Your love and the truths of Your Word. Enable them to cling to You as their Saviour, Lord and God, despite the teachings of radical Islam forced on them for four long years. Thank you that around 160 girls have escaped, been rescued or released; we ask that you would help them too, as they recover from the trauma of what they have endured.
