As I am concerned about my family I am aware that there are families in Nigeria who have been torn to pieces, and have no idea where there girls have gone or in what condition they may be. Let us pray for all whose families are in a state of confusion, disruption, and facing the unknown.
God who parents us, we give you thanks for your loving care. We thank you that you guide us when we are lost or confused, that you surround us with your loving arms when life is hard to face, that you challenge us when we become complacent. We pray today for all families in the ups and downs of life they face. We pray for those trying to put their lives back together after the tornadoes and storms. We pray for those whose girls have been kidnapped. We pray for those who are squeezed as a sandwich, facing both joy and sorrow. And we pray that you will help us to be instruments of your loving, healing touch in all situations.
