Nigeria Prays Holds One Day Prayer Summit in Lagos
In line with its commitment to keep interceding for Nigeria, Nigeria Prays, the non-denominational prayer group established by Nigeria’s former Head of State, General Yakubu Gowon has concluded plans to hold a one-day prayer retreat in Lagos.
The last time such retreat was held in Lagos was about two years ago.
But the Nigeria Prays group normally holds prayer rally every month moving from one state of the country to the other. The group has also had to travel out of the country to hold such rally.
But the Lagos rally is organized by the Lagos Chapter of the group and it was conceived to bring together believers from across the state so they could cry unto God for Nigeria.
A statement by the Lagos state Chapter Chairman of Nigeria Prays, Pastor Toyin Kehinde and his vice, Pastor Afolabi Raphael indicates that the prayer summit will hold at the Good Shepherd Parish of the Redeemed Christian Church of God 232/234 Herbert Macaulay Way, Alagomeji, Sabo, Yaba-Lagos on October 27 by 2p.m.
The theme of the prayer summit according to the statement is; Oh Lord Arise Heal Our Land”
The statement informed that Christians from all over the state are expected to grace the occasion. “It is mainly an intercessory session. It is true that we have been praying. But prayers can never be too much. While we keep calling on God, we keep appealing to our people to work hard and live lives that will bring glory to God. Our situation is not irredeemable. If people say we pray they don’t get results, what if we have not prayed at all? But the fact is that it is the prayer of the saints that have been keeping Nigeria as a country.”
The body then encouraged Lagosians to avail themselves the opportunity of coming to intercede for the land. “We are calling on all Lagosians to come and be part of this one-day prayer summit. It is going to be a time of refreshing. It will be a time of visitation from the Lord. We are very optimistic that the salvation of Nigeria is closer than before.”
