CAN Declares 3-Day Nationwide Prayer over Insecurity
The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has declared a three-day prayer for the peace and unity of the country in the face of mounting insecurity.
In a released statement signed by the General Secretary of CAN, Rev. Daramola Bade-Joseph, said that the prayer which would hold from May 28, until May 30, had become necessary following the spate of insecurity in many parts of the country.
Bade-Joseph said that the prevailing circumstance and situation in the country had made it imperative to seek God’s intervention to restore stability, peace and progress in Nigeria.
According to him, all participating denominations are expected to gather in the evenings of each of the days set aside for the prayers.
He appealed to CAN members and Christians to pray and ask God to give the political leaders in the country the wisdom to do justice and show fairness to all manner of persons irrespective of ethnic group, creed and religion.
“We should also pray that the law enforcement officers rise to their responsibilities by providing the necessary security we need in Nigeria,” he added.
