After reading this very heartbreaking, nightmarish article on how young, innocent lives have been forever traumatized by Boko Haram, it is hard to not be mad at Christ for not “zapping” (as if He ever did such a thing), and killing those who are responsible for such heartache and misery.
Hearts scream out for Justice. Peace. An end to the suffering.
Will you please join in prayer?
“Dear Lord Jesus,
I don’t know what to write here, Jesus. There are no words.
No words but what comes wailing out, as one reads this article: “Justice! Jesus, bring Justice!”
That is my prayer.
My broken, face-turned-down prayer to You.
Dear Sweet Jesus,
Please, bring these people to know You… to know who You really are.
Please bring beauty out of ashes for these people.
Weeping into dancing.
May those who have gone through trauma not try to cover it.
May they lift their stories to You, so that You might restore what satan, the world, and our sinful selves have tried to take away.
May all people involved in this… and I say it with honest rage towards those I am praying for… but may even the members of Boko Haram who have done this, come to know You.
No one, not even them, are outside of Your Love.
Thank You, Jesus.
In Your Name I pray,
Please continue to pray for these people as you feel led. Thank you.
