Dear Ones,

On this Mother’s Day of 2014, please pray with empathy for the mothers of the Nigerian girls who were kidnapped last month. Some have escaped, but over 200 are still captive. And of course, pray for the girls and for their safe return. These girls not only face sex slavery, but also forced conversion away from their Christian faith to that of Islam. Of course, it is possible that they can keep the love of God and Christ in their hearts, even under great duress, but once they are separated from each other, they will have very little support for all that is familiar and dear to them.

I am relieved that there is international concern for the welfare of these girls. Perhaps the sheer number of them compels us to pay attention. They were targeted because they were being educated, as have other girls been persecuted in various areas where radical Islam has taken a foothold.

This world can be an ocean of suffering, and such it is right now for these poor girls, who already had so little in their lives, but they at least had their families and neighbors and their faith.

God is in everyone, but the concept of “Love thy neighbor as Thyself” is clearly not uppermost in the minds of the kidnappers:

“I abducted your girls,” Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau, said in a video released last week. “There is a market for selling humans. Allah says I should sell. He commands me to sell.”

The laws of karma seem to move all too slowly to correct such soul ignorance, but in God all things are possible. May the forces of Goodness and Light protect these girls and return them to safety, and may the hearts and minds of their persecutors be lifted up into the Light, as well.

The names of the girls are listed below. You can pray for them individually or as a group. Even to think of them with Divine Love and to see them in Light can be very helpful at this time.

In His Love,

Mary Kretzmann
