Assistant General Overseer of Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor J.F Odesola, has said in a circular that the members of the church will embark on a national prayer for the country.
According to him in the circular which was issued on January 29, the insecurity in the country was becoming alarming and needs to be prayed against.
He stated that the prayer would be done on Sunday (2nd February, 2020) and each member is to march round their immediate environment, praying for God’s intervention in the ongoing situation in Nigeria.
“The Christian Association of Nigeria, the umbrella body for all Christians and Christian organizations in Nigeria, has made a clarion call for prayers and advocacy to all Christians in Nigeria in response to the inhumane acts against Christians in the country.
“The General Overseer has therefore directed that all members of RCCG should participate in this prayer and advocacy with details as stated here under:
Since RCCG is currently on a fasting and praying programme, the prayer focus within this period should be against the gruesome killings of innocent people in the country and prayer for the government to develop the capacity to overcome the criminals troubling the nation,” Pastor Odesola said.
He also said that the service in all parishes would close no later than 11am in order to pray for the government to develop capacity to overcome the criminals troubling the nation.
