Prayer for Wednesday 4th June 2014

Today, from our church family, we pray for Gary Mayo.

In the middle of April, 276 girls were kidnapped from their boarding school in Chibok, Nigeria by the Islamist terrorist group Boko Haram.  At the time of preparing this prayer diary, the girls are still missing and Boko Haram has said it is going to sell them into slavery.  The anger of the entire civilised world is gaining momentum at the lack of progress by the Nigerian authorities. Britain and America have offered to help in any way they can.  Dearest Lord, we  cannot imagine the terror of the children who have been taken, nor the anguish of their helpless parents, who are desperate for news.  Be with all those who are working to end this awful situation and give courage and strength to the children and their relatives as they wait for this dreadful predicament to be resolved. Lord in your mercy, hear our prayer.
