Mothers seek spiritual intervention for abducted schoolgirls
National Coordinator of the Nigeria Mothers Pray, Pastor Esther Okorie, has called on women to pray for peace in the country and for the safe return of the over 200 students of Government Girls Secondary School, Chibok ,Borno state abducted by suspected insurgents last week .
A statement from the organization signed by Pastor Okorie urged women to put away religious, ethnic, political considerations aside and unite in prayer and positive action to salvage the country before it becomes too late for all.
“Which woman will fold her arms and watch her child at the brink of destruction and not do all in her power to salvage that child? Not even the mad one. But it seems that most of us have become too busy to hear the cry of our child of destiny - Nigeria!”
While lamenting the recent bombing of a bus station in Abuja, Pastor Okorie urged Nigerians not to forget in a hurry the Rwanda experience 20 years ago adding that women and children always end up being the worst affected victims of genocides and wars.
She called on women to become vanguards for change saying every woman can make a difference in her very corner.
