THE CLARION CALL

I woke up this morning, January 2 2010, after getting my children ready for school, very unlike me, I took my devotional books and bible, and instead of reading, said a short prayer and settled down to sleep..i strongly believe this was not a dream i had but more of a REVELATION, which i believe should not be taken lightly, i can not give the full detail of the dream/Revelation here for some reasons but the bottomline was bloodshed on the streets and I woke up visibly shaken as if it was real!
As a Nigerian and one that knows that Nigeria's destiny is being manipulated for backwardness and evil, there is a need for us all to stand up and truly pray for this country as i know as a Missionary what Nigeria is to the World on a spiritual level, but if the country divides, this may not be possible.So we must remain united as Nigerians, so as to become what God has destined our great Nation and its citizens to be.

This note is written as an urgent appeal to everyone that loves our great country Nigeria.There is an urgent need to PRAY and INTERCEED for the country. We must as a matter of urgency pray against ethnic , religious and political killings, we must pray for the Youths of this country to have the fear of God and not be used by the agents of evil to unleash terror on innocent people.

A lot of powers are fighting to control the destiny of this Nation and its citizenry but we must pray that the God of heaven and earth must be enthroned in this Nation of ours and that He will intervene and rule in the affairs of this country. What is happening in Nigeria now is child's play compared to what i saw..so please lets take at least one hour every day to pray seriously for this Country, lets groan in the spirit and pray with tongues, we must persist in praying until the change we want in this country comes. The lives of Nigerians are hinged on our praying at this time and so we must pray until something happens...Only God can deliver Nigeria and He will only do so,if we pray and persist in our prayers. God bless Nigeria and God bless Nigerians.

Prayer points- Lets ask God to forgive us our sins as a people for righteous exalts a Nation but sin is a reproach to any people (Proverbs 14-34).

Lets pray for righteousness to be enthroned in the lives of Christians in Nigeria, that they will truly know God and be filled with the spirit of God to be true change agents with their conducts.

Lets pray that the word of God will grow in Nigeria and that people will accept Jesus as their Lord and Saviour.
(This will make a world of difference as i know its only in Christianity that we preach true love no matter what..Thou shall not Kill is one of the Ten commandments! Lets know that as people embrace Christ, and truly serve Him, the change from within them will influence their actions and impact the society for good).

Lets pray that we will be the right influence on others, as we live the life of Christ, people around us will be influenced for good in Jesus name amen.

Note - Our confidence must not be in the Political system but on God and as we trust God to intervene, He will make Nigeria beautiful again.


I will end this post with this note i saw online:Righteousness exalts a nation

(Thomas Brooks, "The Crown and Glory of Christianity,
or, HOLINESS, the Only Way to Happiness", 1662)

"Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a
disgrace to any people." Proverbs 14:34

It is not valor in war—but righteousness;
it is not policy in government—but righteousness;
it is not wittiness of invention—but righteousness;
it is not civility in behavior—but righteousness;
it is not antiquity of laws—but righteousness;
it is not largeness of dominion—but righteousness;
it is not greatness of command—but righteousness
—which is the honor and the safety, the renown
and the security of a nation.

It is not rich mines of gold and silver, nor armies,
nor councils, nor fleets, nor forts—but justice and
righteousness which exalts a nation; and which will
make a lowly people to become a great, a glorious,
and a famous people in the world. That nation which
exalts righteousness—that nation shall be certainly
exalted by righteousness.
