In Matthew 16:15-19 Christ asked Peter who he thinks He is. Jesus responds to Peters affirmation that He would build HIS church and Hell would not stop it. He then says” I will give you the Keys of The Kingdom of Heaven.”
I believe that the keys He is speaking of is PRAYER. OUR PRAYER ARE THE KEYS THAT ADVANCES GODS KINGDOM. Think about that! Let us be faithful.

Leah Sharibu, Nigeria
Keep persecuted Christians in Nigeria in prayer. It has been almost 18 long and painful months since Rebecca Sharibu’s teenaged daughter Leah, was kidnapped by Boko Haram Islamic militants. While Leah’s schoolmates were eventually freed, the insurgents refused to release Leah because she would not relinquish her Christian faith.
Now, Sharibu is turning to the U.S government in a desperate plea for her child’s life.
“I have brought my cry here. Leah is a beautiful child, she loves the Lord and I am so proud of her for not giving in,” Sharibu told Fox News. “But she has spent her 15th and 16th birthdays in captivity and we need her home.”
The anguished mother is part of a small delegation of Nigerian activists to have descended on Washington recently to ask for help.
- Pray for Leah that she would keep her faith strong,
- for Leah and others protection & release,
- for the Nigerians visiting Washington to have the ear of Congress.
- That the Nigerian government would protect its Christian citizens
UNREACHED PEOPLE GROUPS:
Continue to pray for unreached people in Islamic countries.
