Lord, today we pray for Nigeria's fight against Boko Haram. Thank you that their intelligence agency recently apprehended nine of these extremists. May they celebrate this accomplishment and use it as further motivation in the fight against terror. Lord, we do pray against the work of Boko Haram. Their evil beliefs and actions are atrocious and grievous. We pray for the thousands of girls and women who have been kidnapped by, raped and forcibly married to Boko Haram fighters. Please protect their minds, so they do not assimilate into Boko Haram’s violent culture. Please minimize the damage to their bodies and souls. Please bring them to safety soon. May their government not give up hope and continue to rescue as many as possible. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
