DAILY PRAYERS FOR NIGERIA
Please take time to pray for Nigeria if you love her; for she is wounded and bleeding profusely and the voice of Rachel weeping for her slain children rends the air daily!
In Rama was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not.
These targeted prayers are formulated by the Holy Spirit to counter the various challenges of the nation. Please, first spend time in praise worship and then deep repentance for our sins before you proceed.
#1. Lord Jesus, secure the borders of Nigeria with Your precious Blood so that nothing evil, whether human or otherwise, can cross our borders to cause confusion and destruction in the land, in Jesus Name.
#2. We possess all the gates of the land of Nigeria for The Lord Jesus – the air gates, the land gates and the sea gates – in the Name of Jesus. We decree that no person and nothing evil or harmful shall be imported into the nation undetected, in Jesus Name.
I saw by night, and behold a man riding upon a red horse, and he stood among the myrtle trees that were in the bottom; and behind him were there red horses, speckled, and white. 9 Then said I, O my lord, what are these? And the angel that talked with me said unto me, I will shew thee what these be. 10 And the man that stood among the myrtle trees answered and said, These are they whom the LORD hath sent to walk to and fro through the earth. 11 And they answered the angel of the LORD that stood among the myrtle trees, and said, We have walked to and fro through the earth, and, behold, all the earth sitteth still, and is at rest.
Father, release these Your patrol Angels riding on horses according to Your Word, to patrol every corner of the land, and crush all activities of insurgency, banditry and all forms of activities leading to wasting of innocent lives, Satanism, kidnapping, rape, ritual killings, political assassinations and all form of evil against the innocent of the land, in Jesus Name. Let no enemy of the nation be hidden from them, even the enemies within our security forces who collaborate with enemies without, in Jesus Name. Let the report of these patrol Angels to You every night be as it is written “All (Nigeria) lieth still and is at rest”, in the mighty Name of Jesus.
#4. Zech. 6:1-8
And I turned, and lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and, behold, there came four chariots out from between two mountains; and the mountains were mountains of brass. and in the third chariot white horses; and in the fourth chariot grizzled and bay horses. In the first chariot were red horses; and in the second chariot black horses; Then I answered and said unto the angel that talked with me, What are these, my lord? And the angel answered and said unto me, These are the four spirits of the heavens, which go forth from standing before the Lord of all the earth. The black horses which are therein go forth into the north country; and the white go forth after them; and the grizzled go forth toward the south country. And the bay went forth, and sought to go that they might walk to and fro through the earth: and he said, Get you hence, walk to and fro through the earth. So they walked to and fro through the earth. Then cried he upon me, and spake unto me, saying, Behold, these that go toward the north country have quieted my spirit in the north country.
Jehovah God, You are the Man of War and the Commander of all the armies in the universe. We ask You to release these war chariots into Nigeria to fight along with our gallant troops and keep them safe for us whether they are fighting on land, in the air, on the sea and in the waterways, in Jesus Name.
Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee, which frameth mischief by a law? 21 They gather themselves together against the soul of the righteous, and condemn the innocent blood. 22 But the LORD is my defence; and my God is the rock of my refuge. 23 And he shall bring upon them their own iniquity,…
The LORD reigneth; let the earth rejoice; let the multitude of isles be glad thereof. 2 Clouds and darkness are round about him: righteousness and judgment are the habitation of his throne.
Let every throne of iniquity in the land where mischief is being framed into law to cage the liberty of Nigerians and to capture our God-given resources, be crushed under the full weight of the rulership of Your Throne of righteousness and justice, O King of the universe, in Jesus Name.
Woe to the multitude of many people, which make a noise like the noise of the seas; and to the rushing of nations, that make a rushing like the rushing of mighty waters! 13 The nations shall rush like the rushing of many waters: but God shall rebuke them, and they shall flee far off, and shall be chased as the chaff of the mountains before the wind, and like a rolling thing before the whirlwind. 14 And behold at eveningtide trouble; and before the morning he is not. This is the portion of them that spoil us, and the lot of them that rob us.
We come against every plan of the enemy to cause confusion, riots and war in our nation, especially during and after our election periods, in the mighty Name of Jesus. Let the rebuke of the Lord fall upon the trouble-makers and let their plans and purposes be overthrown by the evening-tide of the Lord and carried away by Your winds and whirlwinds, according to Your Word, in Jesus Name.
Thou art fairer than the children of men: grace is poured into thy lips: therefore God hath blessed thee for ever. 3 Gird thy sword upon thy thigh, O most mighty, with thy glory and thy majesty. 4 And in thy majesty ride prosperously because of truth and meekness and righteousness; and thy right hand shall teach thee terrible things. 5 Thine arrows are sharp in the heart of the king’s enemies; whereby the people fall under thee. 6 Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: the sceptre of thy kingdom is a right sceptre. 7 Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.
Lord Jesus, You are the King of kings and Lord of lords. We invite You to come into Nigeria and ride prosperously through the land to establish Your truth and righteousness and peace in every area of our national life, for the sake of Your glorious Name and because of we Nigerians who are called by Your Name.
For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south. 7 But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another.
….there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God….3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil…. 4 For he is the minister of God to thee for good…
Lord, we ask You to do all You need to do and give us credible, free and fair elections which will enthrone ONLY those leaders whom You Yourself have CHOSEN, PREPARED, GIVEN THE DIVINE VISION FOR THE POST and EMPOWERED to lead this nation in her Jubilee years so that she will never be taken captive by rapist leaders ever again, in Jesus Name.
#9. Father, we pray for Your protection over our President and his household, in Jesus Name. My beloved President, President Muhammadu Buhari, I pray the prayer of the great king David in Psalm 101 for you so that your rulership over this nation shall make Nigeria great as David made Israel great –
You will sing of mercy and judgment, unto the LORD, will you sing.
2 You will behave yourself wisely in a perfect way so that the Lord will visit you regularly to fellowship with you and instruct you. You will walk within The Villa with a perfect heart.
3 You will set no wicked thing before your eyes: You will hate the work of them that turn aside to do evil; their evil works will never cleave to you.
4 A froward heart shall depart from you: You will not know a wicked person.
5 Whoso secretly slandereth his neighbour, him will you cut off from your cabinet: him that hath an high look and a proud heart you will not allow around you.
6 Your eyes shall be upon the faithful of the land of Nigeria, that they may work with you: he that walketh in a perfect way, he shall serve Nigeria with you.
7 He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within the Presidential Villa: he that telleth lies shall not tarry in your sight.
8 You will early bring the law to bear upon all the wicked of the land; that you may cut off the wickedness of all wicked doers from this beloved land of the LORD, Nigeria. In the mighty Name of Jesus. Amen.
Beloved, please feel free to forward and download these prayers and share with as many Believers as you can find and raise up an army of Watchmen on the walls of Nigeria. Is.62:6,7 –
I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O (Nigeria), which shall never hold their peace day nor night: ye that make mention of the LORD, keep not silence, 7 And give him no rest, till he establish, and till he make (Nigeria) a praise in the earth.
