Lead Them, Lord!

This is what the LORD says: “In the time of my favor I will answer you, and in the day of salvation I will help you; I will keep you and will make you to be a covenant for the people, to restore the land and to reassign its desolate inheritances, to say to the captives, ‘Come out,’ and to those in darkness, ‘Be free!’ “They will feed beside the roads and find pasture on every barren hill. They will neither hunger nor thirst, nor will the desert heat or the sun beat down on them. He who has compassion on them will guide them and lead them beside springs of water.” (Isaiah 49:9-11 NIV).

Father, in the name of Jesus,

Pour out Your favor upon the Nigerian school girls and their families and all those involved in their rescue. Help them O Lord to be very courageous in the face of adversity. Give them boldness to resist and fight back against the enemy who would harm them. Create in the minds and hearts of rescuers, wisdom and insight to fight them and get them back to their families. Strengthen and comfort the hearts of those whose children were abducted. For every man or woman who has compassion in their hearts and will rise up to save and guide them to safety, reward them 100-fold for the rest of their lives. O Lord, our provider, our healer, our protector, we stand on Your Word, and with great expectation, wait to see the salvation of the Lord in the lives of these girls. We thank You for hearing and answering prayer, all to Your glory so all may know, that You and You alone are God! Amen!

For all who read and agree with in prayer, may God bless you richly as you continue to pray for the safe return of these girls to their families.
