Gowon urges prayers to dislodge B’Haram
Speaking during a national prayer rally at the Olive Tree Parish of the Redeemed Christian Church of God in Lagos on Sunday, Gowon noted that the terrorists’ activities were the most disturbing of the nation’s problems.
In view of that, “there is need for Nigerians to begin to change their orientation and pray according to the will and purpose of God. The only way prayer can be of benefit to all is for us to ask that God’s will be done. We should pray that God answers our prayers in a way that it will be a blessing to all.”
He said the incessant suicide bombings are enough cause for worry because “it is sad that some people willfully take their lives and the lives of others. There is no longer respect for lives. There is no regard for human dignity. That is why I really appeal to Nigerians to raise an altar of prayer for Nigeria.”
