I have been looking at the news surrounding Ingrid Betancourt's freedom from captivity and I was not surprised that she mentioned her continuous praying to God for this day to arrive when she would be once again with her mother and her children. That day was July 2nd, 2008 and it shows that God has plans for each and every one of us. It shows that we are able to keep our faith even under harsh realities.
Let us now pray for those estimated 700 hostages still held by the FARC because we can only hope and pray that the lost of the 15 to them does not make them become more cruel to those still unde their control.
Heavenly Father we ask you to watch over and protect all your people in captivity, especially those in the Colombian jungle under the FARC. Help them to keep their faith and help their oppressors to know and love you and to realize that it is time to set these people free. Send them a Moises, Dear Lord to show them the way to freedom. In your merciful kindness let them know and love you, AMEN.
