Prayer about hostage situation in Pigcawayan

Lord, we pray for the hostage situation that is happening right now in Pigcawayan town in North Cotabato, Philippines. Lord, we pray for the military to have success in shutting down the terrorists who have taken over this school and captured these hostages. Please be with the hostages, granting them great ingenuity and courage if there is an opportunity for escape. Give them peace and hope as they are in a terrifying situation. We pray for military leadership as they have to make strategic decisions, while these terrorists are attacking two different parts of their country simultaneously. Help them know just what to do in both locations. Lord, we pray against any of the hostages being harmed. We pray that the terrorists would recognize that killing more people will not help them, particularly if they harm innocent students and/or school staff purely as a diversionary tactic. Even terrorists are people, Lord; you know that better than anyone. Please sear their consciences so they will do the right thing. In Jesus name we pray, amen.
