THE Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has officially announced that Friday, November 4, 2022, will be a national day of prayer in order to pray for the intervention or God in the administration of Nigeria.
The Christian regulatory association disclosed that in a terse statement issued by the Chairman, National Prayer Day Committee, Archbishop John Daniel, on Wednesday.
According to CAN, it is important for the Christians in Nigeria to come together and pray to God for his directions in the administration of the country.
The statement read thus: “We consider this imperative in view of the fact that our nation is passing through very challenging times at the moment, despite its abundant natural, human, and material resources.
“Nigeria is a vibrant and virile land that is full of colour, wealth and all that it would take to be one of the greatest nations on earth. Sadly, the country has not yet reached where it should be at the moment due to some inherent problems.
“Consequently, all christian groups or organisations, stakeholders and christian politicians, especially those vying for offices, are invited to participate in the programme.
“All bloc chairmen, zonal chairmen, states and local chairmen, and all church leaders, are to mobilise their members nationwide for the programme.
“Participants are to assemble at the National Christian Centre in Abuja for the prayer retreat by 10:00am prompt on Friday this week.
“We urge all and sundry to join the solemn assembly in order to usher the country into a new era of peace, unity, safety and all-round prosperity.
“May God use the programme to address the spiritual dimensions of the challenges plaguing the nation and frustrate every evil plan against the unity of the people.”
