The Christian Association of Nigeria has declared a one-week daily prayers among its members nationwide to seek divine intervention to the coronavirus pandemic in Nigeria.
The President of CAN, Samson Ayokunle, who issued the directive in a memo said members are expected to observe the prayer session — which will commence on Monday, April 20 to Sunday April 26, 2020 — for 30 minutes daily.
Ayokunle urged members to carry out the exercise in one accord, adding that such would go a long way in calling down the presence of God in finding a lasting solution to the novel disease which has continued to ravage countries across the globe.
The memo read: “Dear servants of God, calvary greetings to you in the precious name of our Lord Jesus Christ who is the resurrection and the life.
“The Lord ministered strongly to my spirit that we should take a step further in winning the battle over many challenges facing our nation and the church in Nigeria, especially, the present rampaging COVID-19 pandemic by using Paul & Silas’ Praise Approach (Acts. 16: 25-26) to provoke further divine intervention.
“I therefore enjoin all Christian families to set aside 30 minutes each day for the next seven days to praise the beauty of God’s Holiness with effect from Monday April 20 to Sunday April 26, 2020.
“I will be relying upon the Holy Spirit and your responsible leadership in coordinating this just like you did during the last Prayer Chain. I believe that if we do this with one accord, God will do something very positive soon for us, not only by wiping away the global COVID-19 pandemic, but by also helping us to overcome other challenges facing our dear country and the body of Christ in Nigeria.”
