Seventeen Members of Boko Haram Surrender and Seek Forgiveness

[252] prayers in [14] nations have been posted for Former Boko Haram Members.

On May 28, 17 members of Boko Haram surrendered to the Nigerian military after President Muhammadu Buhari offered amnesty to any fighters willing to turn in their weapons and seek peace. Those who surrendered said they had been forced to join Boko Haram after their town was raided four years ago. The men also said they realize the group is “serving the course of the devil” and ask for forgiveness for the pain they have inflicted on others. Pray that these men will surrender to Jesus and be overwhelmed by his mercy and grace. Pray that many more fighters will surrender their weapons and seek peace. Pray that the millions of Nigerians who have been harmed by Boko Haram will receive God’s peace and that Christians in the north will continue to share God’s love.
