#PrayforLeah – online event
Leah was one of 110 girls abducted from their school in Dapchi, Nigeria by Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP) an offshoot of Boko Haram in February 2018. The next month, following negotiations by the government, the girls were put into vehicles to go home.
However, Leah wasn’t among them. She wasn’t released because she refused to convert in exchange for her freedom.
Gathering to mark Leah's 17th birthday
On 14 May 2020 over 250 of us joined together online to mark Leah’s 17th birthday in the best way we could think of – by praying for Leah, her family, and the wider crisis in Nigeria.
With contributions from Matt Redman, Rev Yunusa Nmadu, Pete Greig, and others – join us for a powerful evening of prayer and intercession.
Over the past two years we've prayed and protested many times for Leah. Although we can't gather together in person, we can still gather online and pray.
