Pray for Elizabeth as She Waits for Her Daughter's Return

[252] prayers in [16] nations have been posted for Elizabeth and Mariam.

After waiting three years for Boko Haram to release her youngest daughter, Mariam, Elizabeth is now waiting to bring her home. The Islamic extremist group released Elizabeth’s 20-year-old daughter and 81 other “Chibok girls” in May. Since then, the girls have been in the government’s custody and their families have received no explanation as to why. Elizabeth has only seen her daughter for about 24 hours since her release and doesn’t know when she’ll see her again. Pray that Elizabeth and the other parents experience God’s peace as they wait for their daughters. Pray for Mariam and the other girls as they remain in the government’s custody and continue to heal from their time in Boko Haram’s captivity. Pray for the 113 girls Boko Haram still hasn’t released.
