Gen. Yakubu Gowon, a former Military Head of State as well as the Convener and Chairman of “Nigeria Prays” on Sunday led other Christian leaders to Osogbo for a one-day-national-prayer rally for the country.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that 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 Bible passage 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.
