What Christians need to do after independence day celebration

October 1st is an official national holiday in Nigeria that marks Nigeria's declaration of independence from British rule in October 1, 1960.

This is a day freedom is being celebrated across the country and even in the diaspora by Nigerian citizens.

Due to the challenges the country is experiencing in this recent time as being acknowledged by President Buhari in his independence day speech, It has become worrisome how people decline in the celebration of liberty to resorting to hopelessness and blame game.

In a broadcast the president made mention of the achievements of his government and also the present challenges of this country.

As quoted by Mr President in his speech yesterday "Fellow Nigerians, the past eighteen months have been some of the most difficult periods in the history of Nigeria. Since the civil war, I doubt whether we have seen a period of more heightened challenges than what we have witnessed in this period".

As Christians, it is imperative to stand firmly in the place of prayer for this nation than dwelling on mistakes and regrets.

2 Chronicles 7:14 says "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"

It is time to pray to God concerning the situation in Nigeria. If we can pray for this nation, the states, the local government areas, the communities, the way we spend time praying for ourselves as well, we will have lesser problems in this nation.

We will prosper if we pray for this nation.

Pray for peace in Jerusalem. May all who love this city prosper. Psalms 122:6 NLT
