If my people who are called by my name , will humble themselves and pray and seek my face ,and turn from their wicked ways ,I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their Land. -2Chron 7 v14
-2Chron 7 v14
The first line of the second stanza of our National Anthem goes thus" O God of Creation",this implies that we are God's people and our nation is a God's own nation. prayer is communicating to God,in other words, it is asking God for something with intense yearning. As our nation faces many challenges,it is obvious that we need a spiritual touch for national restoration and rebirth.because it seems what we are passing through as a nation is beyond human wisdom.
I was listening to US secretary of state ,hilary Clinton,on her recent visit to kenya,when she said "Nigeria is the 6th largest producer of crude oil but the country still import fuel",she does not understand why it is so,neither do I too as a citizen.it is a sorry situation.I dont understand why we cant explore and refine our fuel,why cant our refineries work?why cant we implement our budget well?why cant we generate our electricity? we have all the dams,gas ,wind and sunlight.but still we can only generate around 3megawatts of electricity. we indeed need God to help us,we cant continue like this.Andrew Bonar once said
we should pray like this:
A, O God , Guide our leaders’ right
B, O God , Help our youths the truth to know.
C, O God , help us to live in love and honesty to grow.
D, O God ,help us to attain great height
E, O God , help us to build a nation where there will be peace and Justice.
