Prayer summit: 57 men of God, others pray for Nigeria
The National Impact Magazine recently organised a prayer summit at the National Stadium, Surulere, Lagos, where 57 ministers of God and others prayed for the nation. The event with the theme: “Arise Oh, Lord! Let Your Will Be Done In Nigeria,” was to commemorate Nigeria’s independence at 57, and gave participants opportunity to ask God for specific needs concerning the country.
Speaking at the event, the Editor-in-Chief of the magazine, Omenihu Alfred, said the event was created from deep reflection of the National Anthem’s second stanza.He said: “The National Impact Magazine has been part of national evangelism through our columns: “Men of God Speak” and “Gospel Corner,” where we relate with men/women of God on issues of the gospel and national importance. Earlier before the event, these men/women of God opened up on the problems of Nigeria and proffered solution on what they thought should be done.”
Rev. Dr. James Okocha of Life Givers Assembly said Nigeria has a major problem of injustice. He advised political leaders and Nigerians to stop abusing privileges and give justice supreme opportunity in every sector of the country, as there will be accountability on the last day.
Similarly, Prophet Darlington Unichi, founder and visioner of The Ark of Holiness Evangelical Mission (TAHEM) said politicians don’t usually fulfill their campaign promises after winning elections.
To the General Overseer of Sanctuary of Nations Assembly, “Pastor (Dr.) Biodun Adeneye-Marcus, the problem of Nigeria is in two fold: The forced union by the colonial masters because of what they thought they could benefit, and because Nigerians were not prepared to live together, which is why there is no brotherly love for one another.
While bemoaning the level of corruption, Adeneye-Marcus advised the leaders and the citizens, to change their psyche. “Nigeria is not only monetarily corrupt, she is equally attitudinally corrupt,” he said.
He said youths should be given opportunity to rule the country, as they are creative, educated and have a lot to offer.Prophet David Okorie of the Narrow Way Gospel Church Inc. called on the leaders to put the nation first, love the people that voted them into office, avoid ethnic rivalry, religious and tribal sentiments, when treating the people’s affairs, avoid using party influences to victimise people, groups and segment of the country and that Nigerians should shun violence and live peacefully with one another.
