Prayer about kidnapped Dapchi girls

http://time.com/5175464/boko-haram-kidnap-dapchi-schoolgirls/

Lord, today we are absolutely sick to our stomachs to learn of the confirmed kidnapping of 110 schoolgirls by Boko Haram in Dapchi, Yobe. The bile rises up in our throats and the tears come to our eyes. “How long?!” we cry out. “LORD, how long shall the wicked, how long shall the wicked triumph?” (Psalm 94:3). With 100 Chibok girls still missing after their 2014 abduction, we are infuriated that Boko Haram would take 110 more girls. We are completely disgusted by their disregard for human life, their mistreatment of young girls’ bodies and minds, and the destruction they wreak on thousands of people. We would like to see them smote like Sodom and Gomorrah! Thank you, Lord, that we can pour out our hearts before you, sharing our raw emotions. We do plead with you to act! Bring complete confusion and disarray within Boko Haram. Strike the terrorists with sickness, hunger and fear. Cut off their leadership. And, Lord, open their eyes. We pray especially for young and new members to see the horror of what is happening and to leave, taking captives with them to freedom. Stir up the government of Nigeria to act promptly, efficiently and powerfully. Rally anyone else who can assist to action. Lord, we call out to you for help: bring back the Chibok and Dapchi girls. In the mighty name of Jesus we pray, amen.
