A recently a video emerged from Boko Haram showing the kidnaped Nigerian girls dressed in burqas while being held captive. The girls have been held hostage for a month now, and each passing day brings more fear and uncertainty.

Open Doors is on the ground in Nigeria, and other countries, supporting women and children like these who have had their lives turned upside down by the horrific acts of extremists.

Through programs like trauma counseling, training to stand strong in the face of persecution and even rebuilding homes and churches destroyed by extremist groups, we are able to stand with these dear sisters.

In a communication, Open Doors said, “to keep these vital programs going, we need your help! As the attacks in Nigeria and other countries continue to increase, your support is desperately needed… In 2013, more than 700 Christian girls were kidnaped in Pakistan and hundreds were kidnaped in Egypt as well. Christian women and children have been increasingly targeted by extremist groups and deeply depend on your prayers and support. Thank you for standing not only with the Christian girls who have been abducted, but with the countless others being persecuted for their faith!”

May the words to the hymn, “Holy, Holy, Holy,” be our prayer to our Lord!

Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
Early in the morning our song shall rise to thee.
Holy, holy, holy! Merciful and mighty!
God in three persons, bless Trinity!

Holy, holy, holy! All the saints adore thee!
Casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea;
Cherubim and seraphim falling down before thee,
Which wert and art, and evermore shalt be.

Holy, holy, holy! though the darkness hide thee,
Though the eye of sinful flesh thy glory may not see,
Only thou art holy; there is none beside thee,
Perfect in power, in love, and purity.

Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
All thy works shall praise thy name, in earth, and sky, and sea;
Holy, holy, holy! Merciful and mighty!
God in three persons, blessed Trinity!
