From the CNN news yesterday: Armed men kidnapped an American missionary from a school in Nigeria and have demanded the equivalent of almost $300,000 for her safe return, Nigerian police said Tuesday. The Rev. Phyllis Sortor, a missionary with the Free Methodist Church in Seattle, was identified by her church as the U.S. citizen abducted from the Hope Academy compound in Kogi state.
“Dear Heavenly Father, please intervene in this situation. Lord Jesus Christ, please glorify Your name in the life of Your daughter and servant. Dear Holy Spirit we pray that you comfort Sister Phyllis and free her. May the robbers see Christ in this woman and be converted. We come against any evil spirit energizing these men. We bind you and reject you! We destroy the occult power of any charm that emboldens the robbers. Holy Spirit please come down and give us, the Body of Christ a fresh testimony of Your power and grace! We vow to give You alone all the glory! In Jesus name we pray, amen!”
