25TH JANUARY 2014
TEXTS: PSALM 85:12; ISAIAH 46:10
FOCUS: O LORD, DELIVER NIGERIA FROM ALL KINDS OF EVIL
INSIGHT FOR EFFECTIVE PRAYING
God is interested in the affairs of Nigeria as a nation. This nation had passed through many crises in her Nation-building, yet she remains one indivisible entity up till date.
However, Nigeria is embroiled in fresh crisis in her polity, economy, education, sectoral allocation, religion and social welfare.
Yes, evildoers are increasing daily. Nigeria has gotten to the height of man’s inhumanity to man. People had made covenant with death, grave, demons, witches, wizards and other inanimate objects in the universe.
Religion leaders are not helping the matter. There is desecration of the holy writ (The Bible) and strange interpretations to support unwholesome practices.
Shedding of innocent blood, menace of “Boko Haram” and other monsters, corruption in virtually all facets of the society; Embezzlements and lootings of the National treasury have become the order of the day. If there is anytime to cry to God for our beloved country, it is now!
