PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

Lord, Command the kidnappers of the 150 students in northern Nigeria’s Kaduna state to immediately release the innocent mass starving without food. Empower the unstable and feeble government with Your might to ensure safety of their citizens and children. Bring to end of this kind of continuous raids and attacks as this has happened for the tenth of such attack and mass kidnapping of children since December 2020. Expose the Boko Haram bandits terrorizing civilians, destabilizing the region and empowering jihadists, and make the government eradicate them completely. Strengthen the Churches to wage a war against the latest alarming trend of waves of mass kidnappings of students, endangering millions of children’s futures. Lord, give justice to the weak and the fatherless; maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute. Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked (The Bible, Psalm 82:3-4).
