Chibok Girls to Pray for, of the Week:
Ruth Lawan & Leah Sharibu
We are also featuring Leah Sharibu, whom, according to different reports, is rumored to have passed away in Boko Haram captivity. These reports are unconfirmed, however. Please pray with me that they are false.
“Dear Lord Jesus,
We thank You and praise You for Ruth and for Leah. We know that You know all things, and that they are safe in Your Arms. We pray now that both would see freedom from Boko Haram, and that they would come to You if they do not know You yet. Draw them close to You if they already do know You as their Lord and Savior.
In Your Name we pray,
“The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.”
(2 Peter 3:9, NIV)
