Would You Please Join Me In Praying For Nigeria?

This is not so much a discussion thread on a topic; it's a place where we bend the knee to Him who is greater than us. Please post a short prayer for sanity to return to our beloved country Nigeria. If you've got almost nothing to say, a simple "amen" or short verse to encourage others will do. Thank you.

O God, please step into our situation and stop the murders taking place in our nation. We ask in Jesus' Name. Amen.

Thanks choice.A, I really needed some one to Amen that prayer for me cause am really concerned about that so called Kinky church.

Hebrews 13:9. Do not be carried away by all kinds of strange teachings. It is good for our hearts to be strengthened by grace, not by ceremonial foods which are of no value to those who eat them.

Our Father in heaven, we worship you. We praise you and give all glory and honor to you. Today Lord I ask, in the name of your holy Son Jesus.Who you sent to the world to deliver us from death unto your salvation, your Son whom you gave the name, that every knee must bow to the sound of the name Jesus. I ask oh God, deliver us and our children from people like the reverend of the kinky Mary Magdaline church. Who are decieving people in your name. Father in your word in John 10:10, you said that the devil's purpose is to steal, kill and destroy. That is exactly what this kinky church is trying to do. To steal and kill destinys and also to destroy lives. Father I pray in the name of Jesus, that you paralyse their activities in Jesus name. Even in the lives of Nigerians and people all over the world. Father help us to resist the devil that he might flee from us, grant us the grace to draw near to you so you will also draw near to us. Purify our hearts oh God so the devil will not outsmart us, for we are familiar with the devil and all his schemes. Forgive our sins oh God, in deeds and in omissions. Lord cleanse our hearts.

Help us to guard our hearts and deliver us from all evil. In Jesus Name I pray.

Jer. 29:11 "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end."

Father, You know all things and nothing takes you by surprise. Thank you for today, we give you praise.

We ask that your thoughts may abide with us as a nation - that we may enjoy the peace we long for from you alone, and that the evil we have seen the past month have no bearing in our future history. In Jesus' Name.

Amen.

[center]BLACK EYED PEAS[/center][center]WHERE IS THE LOVE[/center]

[center]What's wrong with the world, mama

People livin' like they ain't got no mamas

I think the whole world addicted to the drama

Only attracted to things that'll bring you trauma

Overseas, yeah, we try to stop terrorism

But we still got terrorists here livin'

In the USA, the big CIA

The Bloods and The Crips and the KKK

But if you only have love for your own race

Then you only leave space to discriminate

And to discriminate only generates hate

And when you hate then you're bound to get irate, yeah

Madness is what you demonstrate

And that's exactly how anger works and operates

Man, you gotta have love just to set it straight

Take control of your mind and meditate

Let your soul gravitate to the love, y'all, y'all

People killin', people dyin'

Children hurt and you hear them cryin'

Can you practice what you preach

And would you turn the other cheek

Father, Father, Father help us

Send us some guidance from above

'Cause people got me, got me questionin'

Where is the love (Love)

Where is the love (The love)

Where is the love (The love)

Where is the love

The love, the love

It just ain't the same, always unchanged

New days are strange, is the world insane

If love and peace is so strong

Why are there pieces of love that don't belong

Nations droppin' bombs

Chemical gasses fillin' lungs of little ones

With ongoin' sufferin' as the youth die young

So ask yourself is the lovin' really gone

So I could ask myself really what is goin' wrong

In this world that we livin' in people keep on givin'

in

Makin' wrong decisions, only visions of them dividends

Not respectin' each other, deny thy brother

A war is goin' on but the reason's undercover

The truth is kept secret, it's swept under the rug

If you never know truth then you never know love

Where's the love, y'all, come on (I don't know)

Where's the truth, y'all, come on (I don't know)

Where's the love, y'all

People killin', people dyin'

Children hurt and you hear them cryin'

Can you practice what you preach

And would you turn the other cheek

Father, Father, Father help us

Send us some guidance from above

'Cause people got me, got me questionin'

Where is the love (Love)

Where is the love (The love)

Where is the love (The love)

Where is the love

The love, the love

I feel the weight of the world on my shoulder

As I'm gettin' older, y'all, people gets colder

Most of us only care about money makin'

Selfishness got us followin' our wrong direction

Wrong information always shown by the media

Negative images is the main criteria

Infecting the young minds faster than bacteria

Kids want to act like what they see in the cinema

Yo', whatever happened to the values of humanity

Whatever happened to the fairness in equality

Instead in spreading love we spreading animosity

Lack of understanding, leading lives away from unity

That's the reason why sometimes I'm feelin' under

That's the reason why sometimes I'm feelin' down

There's no wonder why sometimes I'm feelin' under

Gotta keep my faith alive till love is found

People killin', people dyin'

Children hurt and you hear them cryin'

Can you practice what you preach

And would you turn the other cheek

Father, Father, Father help us

Send us some guidance from above

'Cause people got me, got me questionin'

Where is the love (Love)

Where is the love (The love)

Where is the love (The love)

Where is the love (The love)

Where is the love (The love)

Where is the love (The love)

Where is the love (The love)[/center]

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost!

My Father and Lord, I pray that the Leaders and people in Nigeria will  allow justice prevail in our country, for you are God of Justice.

Father Lord, You said You will be the Defender/Shield/Sword of the Defenseless

Oh Heavenly Father, have mercy on the millions of Defenseless/Hungry Nigerians being oppressed by a devilish system of Leadership and tribal bigotry,  remove any obstacle and all those playing god on the way of your People, just like you did in the past to save your Children from further oppression and Slavery in the hands of our political Pharaohs.

Let your mighty power, as it was on resurrection day of JESUS come down today and clean  Nigeria of all those Satanic Agents masquerading either as Political or Religious Leaders ,just like you did in the days of Abachanomics, for you alone are LORD .

Glory be to the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Ghost- as it was in the beginning and ever shall be, world without end- AMEN!

May He who dwell in Heaven cause our leaders to stop stealing our money.

May He guide OBJ to read the constitution and forget about third term.

May He convince our tertiary institution lecturers to teach and not just sell hand-out.

May He save us from and eradicate cult members in our universities.

May He teach the police not to collect bribes.

May He turn Nigerian gay wo/men to straight wo/men.

May He inspire our pastors to use the offering they collect to help build the community.

May He teach okada drivers not to drive too fast.

May He block spam mails from 419ers.

May He enable our air plane operators to service their plane before take-off.

All these and others we ask in Jesus name. Amen.
