Have you ever wondered at what made evil people so evil?
How the villains who make headlines for their crimes became the person in the pictures?
They were a child once. They once
Lived on nothing but milk, people who were helpless,
not only in taking care of and doing good
But in even taking care of themselves.
But now, here they are.
Weapons in their hands;
Hatred in their veins.
Shekau, do your parents weep for you?
Do they pray for the light to dawn on your soul,
Lamenting who you could have become?
Sources say they do– (source).
Praise God, “Right” in religion has not become so wrong–
may those who love you never smile in pride at your headlines.
Shekau, don’t you feel empty?
“allah” keeps stringing you along,
lying to you about the wages of your deeds.
that you are made sick by what you have done–
that you are broken and rebuilt by the Christ you
look to in disdain.
Right now, you are
the embodiment of evil.
But so was the apostle Paul. This gives me Hope
–Even for you.
May your leader be seen for the coward he is;
may satan be cursed and cast down forever.
and may all those who do his work
These are my prayers for you, Shekau. You’re disgusting–
but not even you are a hopeless case.
I pray, I pray, I pray.
So Shatter, Shekau!
Christ alone has the glue
and the kind of Love needed
to rebuild you.
“’You have heard that it was said, “Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.” But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that?”
– Jesus Christ

Do you know Jesus?
Without Jesus, there is no real salvation. He alone is the only One who can save our souls– including even the repentant soul of someone like Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau. Learn more about Jesus, and why we need Him, here.
Please pray for…
– The Chibok girls and Leah Sharibu. Find their names and pictures, here.
– Abubakar Shekau. Evil as he is, Christ has the power to change his entire life– as He did with the Apostle Paul. Let’s pray for his salvation.
– Justice. What Shekau and Boko Haram has done is nothing short of the very essence of evil. Let’s pray that Justice is served for those who have suffered senselessly at the hands of Shekau and Boko Haram.
– Salvation for all people. Including Boko Haram members.
Thank you for your prayers and support!!!
