Former Military Head of State as well as the Convener and Chairman of “Nigeria Prays,” Gen. Yakubu Gowon, on Sunday, led other Christian leaders to Osogbo, in Osun State, for a day’s national prayer rally for the country.

The prayer rally was held at the All Saints Anglican Cathedral, Osogbo.

It was organised by the South-West Zone of the Nigeria Prays Group with the theme, “Never Again,” and a Bible passage to back it up was taken from Isaiah 62:8.

Gowon led the Christian leaders from Osun, Oyo, Ogun, Ondo, Ekiti and Lagos states in prayers of thanksgiving.

They also thanked God for dousing the tension that came with the last general elections and for also taking control when some people were allegedly fanning the embers of animosity.

He said that the national day of prayer rally was to handover the affairs of Nigeria to God by praying that we would ‘never again’ in Nigeria face the hardship we had experienced and would ‘never again’ take up arms against each other.

The Osun Coordinator of Nigeria Prays, Rev. Mike Adebomi, equally led other Christian faithful in prayer of renunciation of evil from the land and for redemption, breaking every evil covenant and evil plots against Nigeria.

Adebomi rededicated Nigeria (through prayers) to God; binding all unclean spirits troubling the peace of the country.

Rev. Ayo Obilomo, from the Evangelical Church Winning All (ECWA), Fountain Osogbo, who delivered the sermon of the programme, said the church in Nigeria needed to change its attitude and lead by example.

Obilomo, who took his Bible text from the book of Genesis 9:11, said Christians should be in the fore front of fighting for the betterment and development of the country, urging them to go out and propagate the gospel of Jesus Christ.

He said Nigeria needed prayers of the righteous, asking Christians not to relent in praying for the country as their prayer was the solution to the country’s numerous problems.

The representatives of the Nigeria Prays Group from the South-Western zone, government officials and the Deputy Governor of Osun, Benedict Alabi and the wife of the governor of the state, Alhaja Kafayat Oyetola, were present at the prayer rally. (NAN)
