‘When the wicked advance against me to devour me, it is my enemies and my foes who will stumble and fall. Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then I will be confident.’ Psalm 27: 2-3
On Feb. 19, 14-year-old Leah Sharibu was one of 110 girls taken from their school by Boko Haram. In March, following negotiations by the government, the girls were put into vehicles to go home. Leah wasn’t among them. She wasn’t released because she refused to convert in exchange for her freedom. In September, we learned that Boko Haram is threatening to kill Leah and aid workers Hauwa Mohammed Liman and Alice Loksha Ngaddah, unless the Nigerian government meets their demands.
• For Leah, Hauwa and Alice to be released
• That they would know and be comforted by God’s powerful presence
• For God to comfort the families of these three women
• That God would give those working on this case supernatural energy and resources
• For God’s blessing on the work of our advocates, working to secure the their release
“I am very sad… but I’m also jubilating too because my daughter did not denounce Christ…I want the Christians to continue praying for Leah.” Leah’s father, Nathan Sharibu
Prayer and action together are powerful: Evangelical Church Winning All, the denomination to which Leah’s parents belong, is calling for urgent prayer for
the release of all three women.
Join us in praying at 5:30 p.m. every day until they are free.
