Prayer for the nation nigeria

Today we shall be engaging in prayer for the nation of Nigeria. Located in West Africa along the Atlantic Ocean’s Gulf of Guinea, Nigeria is known as the most populous country in Africa and the seventh most populous country in the world, which is a major reason it is called the Giant of Africa. Prior to its independence in October 1960, it was under the colonial rule of the British during the second half of the 19th century.

The nation has always been a rich one and very great in economic resources, this was what the colonial masters saw and took advantage of. It is rich in oil and gas, deposits of coal, iron ire, limestone, tin and zinc as well as land and water resources that are efficient for agricultural exploitation. Though multi-ethnic and highly religious, the people of Nigeria are very industrious, intelligent and morally upright.However, with all of these obvious advantages, the Nation seems to be very backward in all it’s dealings especially when placed side by side with other nations of the world. Nigeria sure need our prayers, therefore, let’s say a prayer for the Nation of Nigeria.

WHY SHOULD YOU PRAY FOR THE NATION OF NIGERIA

Prayer in itself is very advantageous. Jesus Christ stressed its necessity in the book of Luke 18:1, when He says ‘Men ought always to pray, and not to faint. Also in the book of James 5:13, it says the effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.When a nation like Nigeria prays tirelessly, it is easier for them to birth the purposes of God for them time and again. No matter how bad things become in any nation, there will always be a way out if they keep seeking the face of God in the place of prayer. In essence, we must really begin to pray for the nation of Nigeria if we want to witness any positive changes.

PRAY FOR THE GOVERNMENT OF NIGERIA

It is our duty as Nigerians to pray for the nation of Nigeria as well as it’s government. Most people are too quick to criticize the government of their nations, most especially when those in power are not their personal choice, this however is not what the Bible teaches us. Whether the government is giving in their best or not, it is our duty to pray for them. speaking ill of them will not make them any better rather it will even make their leadership worse because there is power in our tongue.
The Bible teaches in the book of Romans 12:1, that there is no authority that is not appointed by God whether we like them or not. It further teaches that we must subject ourselves to them and not resist their ordinances, when we are truly subject to a person or a government then we will never speak ill of them but we will rather pray for them.

Also when we pray for the nation of Nigeria, we are praying for ourselves too, because there is no nation without the individuals that reside in it, it doesn’t matter whether we are direct citizens of that nation or not.This tells us that if our nation is at its best, the government will be at its best, and if our government is at its best, we the citizens will be at our best.

PRAY FOR THE ECONOMY OF NIGERIA

Every time the economy of a Nation is poor, it greatly affects the people and cause them to engage in all forms of unthinkable acts. There is a record in scripture of a great famine in the city of Samaria, so severe that the women began to cook their children as food to satisfy their hunger (2 Kings 6).
Most of the consistent complaints of immoral activities like corruption, terrorism, kidnapping and the likes in our nation is because of the poor state of the economy. It is even more disheartening when we think of the fact that Nigeria is a nation blessed with so much economic advantage.
This is why we need to pray earnestly that God will revive the economy of Nigeria and restore it to the original plans that He has for it.

PRAY FOR THE CITIZENS OF NIGERIA

The people of Nigeria need a lot of prayers for them to get to the peak of God’s counsel for their lives. It was previously stated that there is no nation without the people in it, if this is therefore the case it means that if we don’t pray for the people of Nigeria then we are really not praying for the nation of Nigeria.
There continues to be a recurrent report of Nigerians leaving their country seeking for a better life else where, this is largely because of the state of their economy and also the level of insecurity that their country is faced with. A large bulk of Nigerians die almost everyday leaving loved ones with pain and tears to live with. Mere talks can’t put an end to these things, but prayer can.
The Bible teaches us to love ourselves, Christ in His teaching says to us that the greatest love is when a man lays down his life for his friends (John 15), that is, giving himself for the benefit of others , and one of the ways this is demonstrated is by praying for others.

PRAY FOR THE CHURCH IN NIGERIA

When we have a thorough understanding of the role that the Church has been called to play both in our nations and in the world generally, then we will begin to pray with all sincerity.
The Church is not just a building but a gathering of believers regardless of their number, and they are a direct representation of God and His purposes on the earth. God can only find expression on the earth when there are believers who can avail themselves for Him to do so, however the devil also tries to distract the Church from their specific purposes and therefore limit God from finding expression through them.

As we pray for the nation of Nigeria, we must not rule out the place of the Church. Jesus understood this principle, that was why in John 17:6 He prayed earnestly for His disciples who were then the physical representation of the Church, so as to enable them bring forth His purposes in Judea, Samaria and the ends of the earth.
