President Goodluck Jonathan has attributed the relative peace in the country to prayers offered by different religious faiths.

The made the disclosure on Sunday at the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Olive Tree Parish, Ikoyi, Lagos, where he attended Church service.

The service was attended by the General Overseer of the Church, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, his wife, Pastor Folu, and the Resident Pastor and former Attorney-General of Lagos State, Pastor Yemi Osinbajo (SAN).

The First Lady of Lagos State, Mrs Abimbola Fashola, the Deputy Governor of the state, Mrs Adejoke Adefulire were also at the service.

Also at the service was Ms Olajumoke Akinjide, the Minister of State for FCT and the Supervising Minister of Police Affairs.

President Jonathan said the country had experienced unfair share of global terror but remained united and unshaken because of the prayers of faithfuls.

“I want to thank all of you for your prayers for this country. I thank Christians and other religious groups who prayed for this country, especially at the period the whole world is facing a lot of challenges.

“You will agree with me that whenever you tune your television, especially the international news centres like CNN, Aljazeera or Sky news, you always see breaking news.

“All the breaking news are always negative, you hardly see any positive breaking news all over the world.

“In Nigeria too, we have been having our own unfair share of these negative news brought about by Boko Haram, but we believe that God knows it all. Without your prayers, probably it will have been worse than this”.

The President, who said God had been faithful to Nigeria, added that “God will continue to hear our prayers so that our country will get out of these challenges and other crimes”.

Jonathan specifically thanked Pastor Adeboye and the Redeemed family for the 100 days fasting and prayers declared since January, saying “for the Redeemed family, we have to sincerely thank you because you declared 100 days of fasting which is not an easy task.

“Even to keep faith with the orthodox 40 days fasting during the lent period which I also participate, it is not easy.

“You fasted not because of your personal interests, but for the country. I have to thank the General Overseer and all of you who have been fasting. May God answer our prayers”.

Pastor Adeboye said the Church would continue to seek the face of God for the country and its leadership.

He said “I can assure you that we are praying and we will continue to pray because we have no other place to go to and God has a reason for that”.

The pastor enjoined the congregation to always seek the face of God and patiently wait for God’s visitation.

He gave Biblical references of Sarah, Rachel and Modeciah, whom he said God remembered and turned their situation around after many years of waiting. (NAN)
