  2. That God would speak to our leaders to take the right steps in addressing the dangerous situations into which we have put ourselves.

  4. That God would continue to be with the electoral umpire, INEC, to stand firm without iota of partiality in making sure that elections are free and fair.
     
  5. That God should judge anyone out-rightly, who, out of selfishness is planning to create chaos in the forthcoming elections no matter how highly placed in the nation.
     
  6. That the electorates would come out and vote the right people into power, those who will make promises and fulfill them. 
     
  7. That daily blood shedding of innocent people and other violent acts in Nigeria should be put to an end by our government and for divine intervention.
     
  8. That the Lord should show us mercy as a nation concerning the blood of innocent people already shed in this nation, that is calling upon God for vengeance.
     
  9. That God would cause the terrorists, the gunmen, the bandits, the kidnappers and other violent people in our midst to abandon their evil ways and give this nation respite.
     
  10. That God would give the military upper hand in subduing the terrorists and other violent people causing mayhem in our nation and that He would divinely fight for Nigeria against these evil people and their financiers. 
     
  11. That our generation would experience a new Nigeria where there are equity, justice and people irrespective of ethnic group, religion or political affiliation.
     
    The Prayer is expected to hold simultaneously on all denominations, as we jointly seek the face of God concerning Nigeria.

Insecurity: CAN Declares 3-Day Fasting, Prayer for Nigeria

The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has declared three days of fasting and prayers against insecurity and bloodshed in the country.

CAN National General Secretary, Daramola Joseph, announced this in a circular dated May 11, 2021, and addressed the Christian body’s leadership at various levels.
He explained that the leadership of the association is concerned about the various killings, banditry, terrorism, and other problems facing the country, Hence there is a need for important prayers to be offered to God.

The address states that “This is to inform you that the CAN President, in view of the continuous killings, banditry, and host of other problems in Nigeria has considered it imperative and absolutely necessary that our country needed prayers for God’s mercy and intervention in our land. “Consequently, all local churches are expected to gather in the evening of each day (May 28 – 30th) set aside for the prayers to pray to God in the attitude of mourning or soberness for the bloodshed of many innocent Nigerians most especially Christians. “In the light of these, the following are the suggested prayer points to be followed during the said prayer meetings:

“That we are sad and pained for the blood of many innocent Nigerians that evil people in our midst had shed or for those kidnapped and abused in various ways.

“That our leaders would do justice in leadership and show fairness to all ethnic and religious groups in all their actions so as to douse ethnic and religious tensions we have presently.

“That the law enforcement agents would rise to their responsibilities and provide the necessary security we need in Nigeria.

“That every step the terrorists, bandits, kidnappers, gunmen and other wicked people in our midst take henceforth would be failed. That unseen hands and the army of the Lord would fight them and Nigeria would be at peace.

“That the plans of the evil people in our midst to paralyze human, social and economic activities in this nation and throw the nation into chaos would be foiled by the Lord Jesus Christ.

“That God should forgive our sins wherever we as a church or Nigerians, especially our leaders had sinned against God.”

The CAN leadership had repeatedly expressed its displeasure with the current state of affairs in Nigeria, particularly the rising of insecurity across the country and demanding for better governance and security.
