Because They Have Names

Proverbs 31:8-9
English Standard Version (ESV)
8 Open your mouth for the mute,
    for the rights of all who are destitute.[a]
9 Open your mouth, judge righteously,
    defend the rights of the poor and needy.
Psalm 82:4
English Standard Version (ESV)
4 Rescue the weak and the needy;
    deliver them from the hand of the wicked.”
Isaiah 43:1b
English Standard Version (ESV)
“Fear not, for I have redeemed you;
    I have called you by name, you are mine.
I tried to take a moment to read each name from the list of kidnapped Nigerian schoolgirls, but it called for more than a moment.  It called for my prayers.  These girls we call ours are also God's.  His Son died for the evil we perpetuate upon one another.   What I can't understand, He does; and I can trust Him.  So I pray for the Heavenly Father's dearly loved Nigerian daughters that they will be brought back home.
