Prayers sustain Nigeria-Gowon

We mustn’t loose sight of that. Thank God for those praying for the country

Gowon-360x270[1]Former Head of State, Gen. Yakubu Gowon (rtd) on Sunday at the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Olive Tree parish, Banana Island, Ikoyi, Lagos led several Christian leaders to intercede for Nigeria and its leadership with particular reference to the South West geo-political zone of the nation.

The initiator of Nigeria Prays, led the Vice President, Lagos State governor, RCCG General Overseer as well as the Oba of Lagos, Oba Rilwan Lukman who were represented, Lagos State CAN executive members and other denominational leaders to pray specialised prayers beginning with confessions and repentance of national sins, national thanksgiving, prayer of renunciation and redemption.

Gen. Gowon commended Vice President Yemi Osinbajo for making his parish available for the intercession, noting “we assemble here humbly kneeling and standing, with praise and worship before our Lord God to pray for Nigeria, for our leadership at all levels, from the president to the governors to chairmen of local governments, traditional leaders throughout the country, and the good people of Nigeria.”

According to him, God has been faithful and has kept the nation in one peace in answer to fervent prayers of both Christians and Muslims in the country.

“You just take a look at all the problems in Nigeria over time, challenges that take Nigeria almost to the brink because of what we are doing to ourselves politically, socially, economically etc. But then at every stage, somehow we come out of the brink and are able to re-organize ourselves and move forward.
