Topic: Pray For Her Peace Continuously [01/10/2016]
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee. Psalms 122:1. Read: Ps 122:1-9
Pray for the peace of your Nation - Nigeria. Why should we pray for her peace? Because in her peace we'll experience peace too. But we've been praying yet, have not see any change. Pray again. For how long? till the day you see a positive change. But how are we sure there would be a positive change? That's the problem. That's why it seems the prayers we've been praying is not getting answers, we've all given up on the potency of prayers. We've allowed the challenges of this nation to weigh on us that we only see the negative side and ignore what prayers can do. Instead of praying for the leader (irrespective of their hardened heart), we curse them, thereby cursing our own future. We've forgotten easily that only through faith and patience, the patriarchs of old inherited what was promised them. Therefore, ours cannot but be the same. From old till date, prayer has never lost its potent power. Note that, peace doesn't mean absence of war, but peace in the midst of war.
The Bible admonishes us to "Pray without ceasing" (1 The 5:17) and Jesus said, Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full. Jn 16:24. If we actually want to experience true freedom in our Nation Nigeria, praying continuously for her peace is very paramount than cursing. Even if Nigeria has become our enemy, Jesus also said, We should pray for our enemy. God bless Nigeria and Nigerians.
* God bless Nigeria and happy 56th Independence. Happy New Month
