 3 Great Reasons We Should Pray For Nigeria Today


Today, I want to turn your attention to the operations of prayer, channeling the discourse towards praying for our dear nation Nigeria. Let me start by encouraging you that prayer still works. Yes, PRAYER WORKS. I know some of you are fed up with all of these "prayer things" for different reasons. But the truth remains that God still answers prayers, and He can do things beyond our own human actions and strategies. 

I know we pray. But one of the reasons it appears as if our prayers are ineffective is because we are not praying the right type of prayers. Yes, there are different types of prayer, and for a truth, the kind of prayer we must focus on right now in Nigeria is "Prayer of Mercy".

Nigeria has dipped herself vehemently in unrighteousness and dark corruption. Hence, we, as a nation, must take a posture of humility and plead for mercy from the LORD. 

Fortunately, the Bible says: "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 heal their land." II Chronicles 7:14 NKJV

So, you see, as we engage the mercies of God, we must see to it that we are repentant indeed. We must forsake our sins and turn back to God. It means, as a nation, we must decide to do away with terrible things like kidnapping, murders, corruption, tribalism, etc. As an individual, you too must do away with your personal sins - pride, sexual immorality, malice, alcoholism, telling lies, stealing, etc.

Once we are repentant, we will easily attract God's mercies sufficient to transform our nation. 

So, take time to pray for God's mercy over our land today. And if you need encouragements, then here are three great reasons you need pray for Nigeria today:

1. God has great plans for this country. You can partner with God to make His perfect Will a reality in Nigeria. 

2. God has a reason for making you a Nigerian. Nigeria is yours and your earthly home. You are a major stakeholder. 

3. The country needs as much prayers as she can get right now. The truth is, there is a limitation to what humans can do to transform this country. We really need God's help. 

God bless Nigeria.
