Pray for Rebecca, a Widow Who Fled Boko Haram with Her Children

[287] prayers in [16] nations have been posted for Rebecca.

Rebecca, one of the many widows VOM serves in Nigeria, was forced to relocate to Jos after Boko Haram attacked her village in Adamawa state at the end of December. She and her children fled to another village, where a VOM worker met them and brought them to Jos. During the attack, Boko Haram destroyed only churches and the homes of Christians. Pray that God will provide for Rebecca and her children as they seek His direction for their lives. Pray also for those who lost loved ones and homes in the attack.

    Create a pure heart in me, O God,
    and put a new and loyal spirit in me.
    Do not banish me from your presence;
    do not take your holy spirit away from me.
    Give me again the joy that comes from your salvation,
    and make me willing to obey you.
    Then I will teach sinners your commands,
    and they will turn back to you
