Prayer about surrendered Boko Haram fighters
Lord, we are thrilled that 76 Boko Haram members have surrendered to Nigerian authorities! These starving terrorists (and their children) did not have the strength to continue the fight. Lord, bless the Nigerian military’s efforts to choke the activities of this wicked terrorist group. The recently surrendered captives tell us there are more terrorists who want to turn themselves in. Lord, compel them to capitulate. Thwart their efforts. Cause any reasonable voices among them to be heard as they urge the group to give up the fight. May their concern for their children and wives impel them to raise their vision toward more important goals in life—efforts toward peace and productivity. But, Lord, we also pray fervently that the Nigerian military’s de-radicalization efforts will be effective. Do whatever it takes to compel true heart-change and mindset renewal for these terrorists. We pray that nothing will move them back toward their old ways. We ask in Jesus’ powerful name, amen.
