Please Pick One

I picked Sicker Abdul.  Nigerian Protest

Her last name means “servant” in Arabic and I hope her first name is not a reflective of her first days on the earth.  She’s been identified as a Christian.  I don’t know her age.

She is one of the 180 girls named yesterday as among the students kidnapped from their school in Chibok, Nigeria on April 14th by Boko Haram.  Although 276 girls are still reported missing, we only have 180 names.  You can read more about the situation here.

The  kidnappers are reportedly selling these girls for about $12 each to potential “husbands.”

Praying for 180 girls by name – much less 276 girls – is overwhelming to me and my pathetic commitment to prayer. But I can pray for one Nigerian schoolgirl.  And I am asking you to pray for just one girl as well.

Please choose one name – one girl  – and pray for her until she is found.

I picked Sicker Abdul.  She’s my girl.

Who will you pick?

If it helps to hold you accountable, I invite you to share your choice in the comment section of this post.  Thank you.

    I have chosen Rebeca Joseph to hold up in prayer. The Holy Spirit also lead me to the name Lydia Simon. I will be praying sincerely for these girls by name and for all of the girls as a group. May our Lord surround them. God have mercy on the souls of their captors, and may these men be convicted by the Holy Spirit to let these girls go.
