iPray: Day 10

A Prayer For Nigeria offered by Rita

Heavenly, Awesome Father, I praise and exalt you today. I lift your up Your Holy Name. Your mercy endures forever, Loving Father. Your love is new every morning, as it is today, and great is Your faithfulness. Thank you Lord that Your arm is not too short to save nor Your ears too dull to hear us. Thank you for this privilege to pray for my country Nigeria.

Lord, when Believer delegated praying for Nigeria on me, I planned to refuse. I wondered if there was any hope for Nigeria seeing that things seem to get worse with each passing day. But Lord you showed me what you did for the Israelites who were on exile. After 70 years you brought them out of captivity. And just before the seventy years were expired, You poured out a spirit of prayer. You also said that “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land". Lord, You who nothing is too difficult for, I know that no matter what has happened in 50 years, it is not too much for You to bring a change.

Daddy, I hold the hands of my fellow bloggers, readers and supporters of iPray, and today we pray for Nigeria.Our Father and Our God, I praise You for Your goodness to our nation, giving us blessings far beyond what we deserve. You alone are sovereign and that you rule over all. I come before you with people who acknowledge our constant need for your provision, wisdom, and protection.

Prayer for the people of Nigeria

Lord, you have created each of us uniquely and with a purpose. Indeed you are God over all peoples. Lord it is my prayer that each and every individual who is a Nigerian will come to the full understanding of how unique and powerful he is. It is my prayer that they reverence and fear You. I pray that they understand that the change they desire can only come if each and every one of them makes a commitment to change for better and affect positively their circle of influence. I pray that with the help of Your Spirit, brotherly love will continue and manifest in the lives of each Nigerian. For if we love each other, we shall only think, plan and do good for each other.

It is my prayer, Sweet Gracious Father, that each individual realizes the power in his words and speak positively concerning the future of Nigeria, rather than tearing it down with their words. This country is a blessed country, and by Your grace, each Nigerian shall eat the good of the land. I pray, Father, that they shall tap into the great skills and talents You have deposited in them. May they use their skills and talents for the good of Nigeria.

Prayer For Leaders and People in Authority

Father, when the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice. I thank you Father for giving us leaders and placed people in authority to help move this country forward. I thank You for all the people we have in the different arms of government. Lord, help our leaders and those in authority and bless them today. Give them Your wisdom, guidance and direction. Give them the courage to do what is right in Your sight. I pray that they humbly submit themselves to you. Bless and protect their families oh Lord. I pray that they will come to the knowledge of You and walk according to Your ways. Having prayed for them, oh Father, I claim a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.

Prayer For Ministries In Nigeria

Lord, I bring before You all the Federal Ministries in Nigeria. May they flourish and yield fruit like a tree planted by streams of Your living water. I pray that these ministries shall achieve the purposes for which they were formed to the development of Nigeria and to Your glory.

Prayer for Peace

Lord God of compassion, I pray for peace in Nigeria. I pray that there will be an end to the enmity, strife and hostilities between the people. I also pray for comfort and help for all who suffered as a result, and for complete reconciliation between any opposing groups.

Prayer for Salvation and Repentance

Heavenly Father, if we have turned from your ways, help us reverse our ways and repent. Give us your light and your truth to guide us, by the help of your spirit. Show us your mercy and grant us your salvation.

It is my prayer, Father, that Nigeria shall progress and not experience stagnation among the people or the Ministries and sectors. May we have testimonies concerning Nigeria, and may the negative things associated with Nigeria become history. May Your unfailing love and mercy continue to touch the lives of all Nigerians.

Thank You Lord for answered prayers. Above all, let Your will be done. In Jesus Name I pray, Amen.

Sword of the Spirit [1 Timothy 2:1-2, Proverbs 21:1, Isaiah 59:1, 2 Chronicles 7:14, Luke 1:37, Hebrews 13:1 ]

And Father, give us the courage to stand for right in a country where it seems that wrong is greatly applauded. Let us stand out for truth and stand proud, even when we are called fools for doing so...AMEN

King of Glory we want to thank You for such an opportunity to come before you.Just as Daniel did in Daniel 9, we as believers have come together knowing fully well that the time for Nigeria's Jubilee has come, the appointed time to show her mercy; and her time of deliverance is way overdue.

Mighty Jehova we give you all the glory for choosing us bloggers to come together and pray for Nigeria in this season of your outpouring. Loving Father, we humble ourselves before you and confess our sins, the sins of your people and country Nigeria, that we may receive mercy and your forgiveness. Heavenly Father we ask for a speedy restoration to all that Nigeria has lost and that You Make us strong again. For it is true that if You O Lord do not watch over our nation Nigeria, we are merely getting along in vain. We ask for Your divine presence and peace. For your divine Guidance to all the Leaders You have chosen to lead this great nation of ours and your divine wisdom, because it is with wisdom a nation can can be elevated. Our Lord and God, we ask that You frustrate every plan of the enemy that is battling against the destiny of Nigeria, and that Your Will for Nigeria to stand.

Lord we say thank you for the answers to our prayers. For In Jesus Mighty Name we have prayed. Amen.

Believer said...

Endow the king with your justice, O God, the royal son with your righteousness. He will [a] judge your people in righteousness, your afflicted ones with justice.
The mountains will bring prosperity to the people, the hills the fruit of righteousness.
He will defend the afflicted among the people and save the children of the needy; he will crush the oppressor.

In his days the righteous will flourish; prosperity will abound till the moon is no more. The kings of Tarshish and of distant shores will bring tribute to him; the kings of Sheba and Seba will present him gifts.

For he will deliver the needy who cry out,the afflicted who have no one to help. He will take pity on the weak and the needy and save the needy from death. He will rescue them from oppression and violence, for precious is their blood in his sight.

May people ever pray for him and bless him all day long. Let grain abound throughout the land; on the tops of the hills may it sway.Let its fruit flourish like Lebanon; let it thrive like the grass of the field. May his name endure forever; may it continue as long as the sun. All nations will be blessed through him,and they will call him blessed.

Father, thank you for your words in Psalm 72 the prayer of Solomon regarding the duties of a godly king. Today I pray for Nigeria and I pray for Africa and I pray for the nations of the world that lack leadership and the pain that comes with such. I join my fellow brothers and sisters to lift the leaders of our nations before your throne of grace, that they shall rule according to your will. That it be not about personal enrichment but service, that they follow the Jesus leadership principle, that if they want to be great they shall start with being the servant of all.

Father, help us, help us who are not in leadership, to live right, to not blame the 'system' but remember that we are citizens of a kingdom that have no bounds. That the colours of our passport do not define us because we are children of the King and we have benefits. Father, forgive ungodly leaders because of whom so many go to bed hungry and sick. We can't help ourselves, help us. Help believers, strengthen us to do what we know we should do and speak UP and live UP.

You said if your people would pray, we have prayed and we believe you for an answer in Jesus name. Amen and Amen

Father thank you for Rita and my sisters and brothers who are taking part in iPray. Bless them, keep them, may their prayer altar never go cold in Jesus name.

Oh Father, I want to pray against RELIGION in Nigeria. If you turn into any corner of any streets, churches are loitered everywhere the eyes can see. But Lord, the hearts of the people cannot understand who You really are.

I pray that there will be a personal encounter between You and the people of the land. And in so doing, Your light will shine more and more and seep into the ugly areas of corruption that passes from fathers to their children.

Oh God, I'm trusting You to answer these prayers in Jesus Name.

Thank you so much Rita.
