At this point in time, if you think that the country needs divine intervention, then you should not be reluctant to join those who have called for intercessory sessions as a way of finding a lasting solution to the current security situation of the country.

The Primate of Church of Nigeria, Anglican Communion, the Most Rev. Nicholas Okoh, has called for seven days prayer and fasting with effect from November 12, in view of the present security situation in the country.

Okoh made the declaration at a press conference on the forthcoming Divine Common Wealth Conference (DIVCCON) in Abuja on Wednesday. He maintained that people needed to pray for government programmes to bear fruits.

In his words: “We know that human beings have their part to play, but no matter what we do, except the Lord build the house, the labourers are working in vain… This is why the prayer is very vital. We are not saying those who are given the responsibilities in government should not do it.” He also noted that the church was more concerned about the devastation brought by the activity of the Islamist sects on churches.
