2019 is yours, Nigerians still want you — Christian clerics begins 40-day fasting and prayer for Buhari


2019 is yours, Nigerians still want you — Christian clerics begins 40-day fasting and prayer for Buhari





Some Christian clerics in Plateau state say they have on a 40-day fasting and prayer for the reelection of President Muhammadu Buhari.



The
group under the aegis of the National Inter-Faith and Religious
Organisations for Peace (NIFROP) is also praying for peace and security
of the country.



In a statement on Wednesday, Sunday Garuba, a
bishop and convener of the prayer, said God sent Buhari to rescue the
country that was on a brink of collapse.



Garuba said the enemies of Nigeria would be defeated.



“The
elections are around the corner. In line with the excellent work
carried out by President Muhammadu Buhari, the National Inter-Faith and
Religious Organisations for Peace (NIFROP) is organising this 40-day
prayers, tagged ‘Buhari shall come back in 2019,” the statement read.



“This
is especially on the heels on the grand plot by agents of darkness to
take Nigeria back to the bottomless pit.  But by God’s grace, that would
not happen. In the book of Exodus, we read the epic story of God’s
power to free his people from slavery. In chapter 14, we get to the
climax of the story – the crossing of the Red Sea.



“Before the
people of Israel cross over the sea, they come face to face with their
enemy. Their enemy is strong, and they are weak—but God is stronger. I
therefore stand before you as a servant of the highest God that the
enemies of Nigeria shall be defeated



“We shall commence this
programme with worship and praise by guest singers and choirs. After
which we shall begin Intercessory prayer session for Nigeria, prayer
session for President Buhari and his cabinet, prayer for the Nigerian
troops at the war front, intercessory prayer for the upcoming General
Election and peaceful conduct by all citizens, and Intercessory prayer
for our dear president and his victory at the poll.



“We shall also
hold a special Thanksgiving session with praises to appreciate God for
the defeat of Boko Haram and the political killers who came to torment
the citizens of our dear country. A prayer against evil men on the
Plateau and other forces of evil across Nigeria that have continued to
encourage bloodletting in recent times.



“There shall also be a
different representation of members of the various faiths gathered, as
well as messages of solidarity to the good people of Nigeria. God in his
infinite mercies would make this event a huge success and also, by his
grace alone President Muhammdu Buhari shall return in 2019.”



The endorsement of Buhari comes after some Shi’ites marched to Aso Rock to demand that Nigerians vote the president out in 2019.
