More Than 100 Students Kidnapped from Baptist High School

[186] prayers in [19] nations have been posted for kidnapped children.

Radical Fulani Muslims attacked Bethel Baptist High School in Nigeria's northern state of Kaduna on July 5, 2021. The attackers rode in on motorbikes, shooting wildly into the air as they broke through the fence surrounding the school. The exact number of those kidnapped is uncertain, as some were able to escape in the attack. The Bethel Baptist Church pastor's son was among the students who narrowly escaped. "Right now I'm speechless," the pastor said. "The school is an educational ministry of my church. This is a very, very sad situation for us." Please pray for the safe return of all the students who are still missing, and pray that their kidnappers will be brought to justice. Pray also that the parents whose children were kidnapped will be comforted.

  • Dear Jesus, I pray that Your Holy Spirit would minister to each student and each family and heal them of dreams and panic attacks and any physical damage to their bodies from their capture. Help them to be able to sleep in peace. Convict the ones who captured them of the evil they did and bring them to repentance and conversion to Jesus.
