- Pray for God’s comfort and strength for all those affected by these recent attacks and abductions.
- Pray that all those who have been kidnapped by Boko Haram during the past few months would be released.
- Pray the Lord will grant favour to those who are attempting to shield villagers from attack and bring an end to the violence.
