Christian Girl Remains in Boko Haram Captivity

[453] prayers in [19] nations have been posted for Leah Sharibu.

Leah Sharibu remains in captivity almost four months after Boko Haram kidnapped her and 109 other school girls on Feb. 19 from the Government Girls Science and Technical College in Yobe state. Most of the girls were returned about four weeks after the kidnapping, but five were reportedly killed and Leah is still being held. She is believed to be the only Christian among those kidnapped. One of the released girls said Leah hasn’t been released because she refuses to deny Jesus. Pray that Leah will remain strong in faith and experience Christ’s presence during her captivity. Also pray that she will be released soon and that her mother will be encouraged and strengthened during this ordeal. Pray that members of Boko Haram will be inspired by Leah’s faith and seek to know the God she serves.
