Pray for Nigeria

Numbers 6:27
So they will put my name on the Israelites, and I will bless them.

2 Chronicles 7:14


If my people who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from Heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

Jeremiah 29:7
And seek the peace of the city where I have caused you to be carried away captives, and pray to the Lord for it: for in the peace thereof shall you have peace.


This is a call to repentance to each person. We need our land to be healed, but first we must humble ourselves, and seek God. Then turn from our wicked ways.

Please let us remember that God can not be mocked. The Bible tells us that whatever a man sows, that he will reap. Corruption has gone on for decades in Nigeria, but this is a call to all who have chosen to serve God, who are thus called by His name, to cry out to Him. He is a merciful God, and He will hear us. 

We need to cry out to God to stay this plague of destruction, waste and rage and heal our land, cleanse us from all the fury and blood thirst, and make us human again, especially to our fellow brothers and sisters.

Please let us pray for Nigeria. Yesterday I was angry, today I am broken. We need help from above, as no man on earth can help us. 

Dear Lord, We are your children, redeemed by the blood of Jesus, and called by your name. We have come to you broken. We acknowledge that there is no one like you, we declare your awesomeness and know that indeed, no one compares with you.
We cry to you today to please mend the fractures of our land, for your children are afraid. We stand upon you word which says if we pray and seek your face and turn from our wicked ways you will hear us from heaven, forgive our sin and heal our land. We ask for your mercy and that you will indeed heal our land. Your word makes us understand that you will not withhold any good thing from your children who walk uprightly. The same word makes us understand that you will not destroy a nation for the sake of a few of your children who are there.

Heavenly Father, please have mercy on us. Save our land. Lead our leaders aright. Teach us to walk in your precepts. Help us to do the right thing and know that you are watching us always. 

Grant us peace in our hearts and our land, for your word has said that in the peace of the land lies our own peace. 

This we ask in Jesus name. 

Amen!

  1. And for those who don't know how to pray... Just recite the second stanza of the national anthem, every line is a strong prayer point.

    In the mean time, while praying, let us actually turn from our wicked ways. And let it be for real, or else... these prayers will be a mockery oo
