The leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), has declared three days non -stop praise for God’s divine intervention in 2019 general elections and other challenges facing the country.
CAN said the 72-hour praise and worship is been organized in all churches in the country from 7am to 6pm everyday.
Pastor Adebayo Oladeji, Special Assistant (Media&Communications) to the CAN President, Rev Dr Samson Ayokunle in a statement said, “The leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has declared November 18 to 20, 2018, as days of ‘NON-STOP PRAISE OF GOD for the much-awaited DIVINE INTERVENTION’ over next year’s general elections and other problems facing the country.
“The “72 hours Praise and Worship” is to be organized in all churches nationwide between 18th November, 2018 – 20th November, 2018 as from 7:00 am on the 18th – 6:00 pm 20th November, 2018.
“The Programme is to celebrate the envisaged victory Nigeria is going to experience over economic, security challenges, social, religious and political problems we are facing as a Nation.”
The statement added that CAN, through the Acting General Secretary, Barrister Joseph Daramola, has asked all bloc leaders and their secretaries, all zonal chairmen, all state chairmen and all denominational leaders to organize their church members in non-stop praise of God’s majesty over the victory he has given Nigerians on all its challenges, especially God’s intervention over the coming general elections.
“Having noted various challenges the country is going through, the CAN Leadership considered the need for us to organize a strategic three days of non-stop praise over them in the country (as was done in the Bible in 2 Chronicles Chapter 20), especially the forthcoming 2019 elections with a view to stopping a crisis-ridden election that will not be free, fair and credible.
“The praise is also about the victory we believe God has given the Church in Nigeria over all powers of darkness that want to engulf the Church in whatever guise. We should praise God that bloodshed will be no more in Nigeria.
“A bad leader will not be elected as our President in 2019. All human efforts to manipulate elections will fail and Leah Sharibu and all those in captivity will be released.
“All churches in the country are urged to participate in the programme to usher the country into a new era of peace, unity, safety and all round prosperity,” the statement explained.
