PRAYING WITH LEAH SHARIBU AND HER FAMILY
We pray for God’s protection over Leah physically, mentally and spiritually, and for His grace to comfort her. Ask God to reveal to her a vision of His army of angels as they surround her. For His glory and her good!
We pray for strength–that Leah would be reminded of Your promise never to leave or forsake her. We pray for Your words to flow through her mind.
We pray for peace. We pray for calmness of spirit that only God can provide. Ask God to give Leah and her family enduring patience, to place peace that passes all our understanding in their hearts and that through the peace others see, many in their paths will come to know Christ.
We pray for a bold witness. Ask God to be Leah’s light in this darkness and make her life a living testimony. May her witness be so profound to her captors’ eyes, ears and hearts would be opened to the truth.
We pray for comfort. Ask God to be tangibly close to Leah and her family–that His presence would give them peace, comfort, strength, faith, and even joy as they set their eyes on Him.
We pray for rescue. Pray that God would open closed doors to bring Leah and the rest of the captives home. Ask God to work a miracle so divine that it would astound her captors and lead many of them to Him. We ask that her captors’ eyes might be open to the heavenly realm, and the myriad of angels surrounding Leah.
We pray for the women hostages with Leah. Remember them by name as you pray with the Sharibus: Hauwa Mohammed Liman and Alice Loksha Ngaddah.
We pray for the family of the executed midwife, a mother of two. Ask God to comfort her husband and children as they learn of this news and possibly see the video.
We pray for the Nigerian government and President Buhari–they will be convicted to work diligently and do all they can to release all hostages. Pray that the international community will not remain silent on this, but will assist the government to fulfill their responsibilities towards these citizens.
In Your Son’s name, we pray and ask for these things… #RememberLeah
