Lord, we are sick to our stomachs today to learn that young women
and girls who escaped Boko Haram are now being raped and abused by those who
are supposedly protecting them: the police and military at their refugee camps.
Lord, words fail us. We are absolutely outraged that these “protectors” would
instead take advantage of these young survivors. Thank you that the truth has
come to light about this. We pray for effective measures to be taken that will
prevent this abuse from continuing. We pray for justice for these young women. We
pray for those who have harmed these young women or who are considering it to
feel absolutely deeply convicted to such a degree that they will make right
choices in the future. Lord, please bring healing and hope to these young
women. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
