The fate of Leah Sharibu, a 15-year-old Nigerian girl abducted by Boko Haram, could spark a full-blown sectarian war. It is reported that she refused to renounce her Christian faith, leading her captors to deny her release. Bishop Emmah Isong warned that the peace of the country hangs on the federal government’s promise to secure her release.
How to Pray: Pray for peace and wisdom for all churches involved in this situation. Pray for God’s comfort and protection for Christians who have experienced loss of loved ones due to Boko Haram. Pray for the government to bring justice to those responsible and have wisdom to secure Leah’s release.
