I am asking everyone who reads this to stop what you are doing and pray. Pray for the release of these girls young African daughters. Pray that they are found and are unharmed. Pray for justice to be served. Pray that Christians around the world will rise up and pray against this evil. Pray that the Nigerian government will act throughly, toughly and decisively on this issue and that the nations of the world will rally around Nigeria to help locate these young girls. Pray for comfort and peace for the families of these young women. And pray that women across Africa will be given the rights and privileges they deserve.
This issue is close to my heart. My daughter is a teacher in another African country, Burundi, where she teaches in a secondary school. They are attempting to provide a western education to all their students and the government has been supportive.
