Bring Back Our Girls
                        —Dianna Ortiz 

With hearts broken, we grieve
With the families of young Nigerian women
Taken from the security of home and school.
Their despair calls to us.

The sound of their weeping
Echoes in our own communities.
We pray for their safe return and
An end to their fear.

Be with them, Lord, in their suffering,
And be with us as we work to create a world
Free from violence towards women
Where all recognize
The human dignity
of every girl child,

Of every female.
May the pain of these young women
Be transformed into hope
Through our unceasing efforts
To bring about a more just world
For all our daughters and
For all the children of God.
