PRAYER POINTS

Redemptive Gift

  • Nigeria has a redemptive gift of leadership.  It is a land full of kings, called to exercise spiritual authority over Africa and the Middle East but compromise with the world and sin is currently robbing them of effectiveness in this.

Problems to be solved / Prayer Points

  • Pray for the protection of Nigerian Christians, particularly women who are in danger of being abducted.  Pray for the many displaced and oppressed Christians across the nation.
  • Pray that corruption would be exposed and that wise, just and courageous leaders would be raised up.
  • Pray that the wicked strategies to destroy the Church and to overthrow the democratic government would be defeated.

Signs of Hope

  • Church growth and the many who have come to know Jesus in Nigeria
  • Bible college students have been successfully mobilised to evangelise across the nation, sharing the Gospel with their Muslim countrymen and women
  • Growing heart for missions
  • Nigeria’s prayer movement is one of the world’s strongest
