Please pray for her and her family– that she would have a safe and quick return home!

Hi friends and readers.
As many of you know, today is National Day of Prayer. It would be remiss to ask all of you to please pray for the Chibok girls, as well as the return of Leah Sharibu.
But I also have a few other prayer points that I hope you’ll pray for as well. I’ll put them into short form here:
- It is no surprise, but Hollywood is actually a very dark place. Pray that celebrities would come to know Him, and that Jesus’ Love would be spread and a revival would happen in Hollywood specifically.
- The 30,000 people held in Internally Displaced People’s camps in Monguno, Nigeria.
- The families of at least 186 people who have died recently at the hands of ISWAP and/or Boko Haram in April, and the families of approximately 800 people who have died from terrorism since the year started.
A lot must be done; the best thing we can do is pray. Please do so with me.

Jesus hears our every prayer! Matthew 18:19 says, “Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven.”

It is with sadness in my heart that I have learned and now report that two football players, Dwane Simmons and Corey Ballentine have been involved in a shooting, leaving Simmons dead and Ballentine injured.
Let’s please say a prayer for the families of these two players, as well as for Ballentine and his injuries.
Hi Friends and Readers.
On April 14th, 2018, in Central Nigeria, a church full of Christians celebrated the life of beautiful newborn baby. This child was dedicated to the Lord, and a feast was had
And then, came the carnage. Shots were fired by muslim Fulani Herdsmen, and 17 men, women and children were killed in an instant, the laughter of celebration replaced with screams and cries for help. The baby’s mother was killed in the attack; its father survived and is in the intensive care unit.
As if this were not enough, a bombing happened in Sri Lanka perpetrated by Muslim jihadists, killing almost 300 people on Easter Sunday.
This happens much more than one would think, sadly. One thing is clear: satan does not like the fact that Christ died and rose again, as shown by these horrific acts all around Easter. One person who is apart of Sri Lanka’s Open Doors program affirmed that prayer “is the most powerful weapon” that we have against the enemy. To encourage this more, a virtual prayer wall has been put up to inspire others to pray for those in Sri Lanka, and just to remind those people that they are not alone.
More attention needs to be brought to those suffering in Nigeria! While I do not have the technology to create a virtual prayer wall for those in Northern Nigeria, I would like those who read this blog to please leave your prayers in the comment section of this post. I want to try to figure out a way to get these prayers to the people who need to know and hear the most that they are not alone in this, either—perhaps by linking it to the Bring Back Our Girls’ Facebook page.
Whatever happens, please be praying hard and staying vigilant about these things. Our brothers and our sisters in Christ need us now more than ever.
Your Sister in Christ,
