Hundreds of girls have been kidnapped in Nigeria because they had the audacity to want to get an education.
Be in prayer for these girls and that they might be brought back to their families safely. It’s hard to imagine that so many girls could be taken away. Social media as been buzzing trying to draw attention to this problem.
Sadly this problem is not just located in Africa but every day women, men and children are sold into modern day slavery and sex trafficking.
Despite all of the rhetoric and differences that get thrown around Christian circles there should be a united front from all followers of Christ. These girls (or any person for that matter) are not property to be bought and sold and exchanged for goods. If we truly believe in the divine presence of God indwells within all of humanity then we should be outraged at the actions of this terrorist group in Africa. Not just because they are a terrorist group but because they are stealing the innocence of these girls.
Pray for their safety, prayer for their families who struggle to cling to hope and pray that peace will come to earth and this never happens again.
Come, Holy Spirit, Come.
