The National Inter-Faith and Religious Organisation for Peace (NIFROP) on Thursday, December 31, declared 21-day intercessory prayers to usher Nigeria into the new year.
The religious group said the exercise is themed, “2021: Our Year of Overcoming Agents of Destabilization, Coup Plotters and Blood Sucking Demons working against President Muhammadu Buhari, the Nation and Humanity.”
In a statement signed by the grand patron of NIFROP, Archbishop Julius Ediwe, and seen by Legit.ng, the group said the event would take place between January 4, and January 25, 2021.
“We shall be congregating under the Unity Church and Unity Masjid with Christian and Islamic Clerics in a rare display of unity of purpose in prayers for Nigeria.”
The cleric said the event which would also have both Muslim and Christian faithful in attendance is expected to give Nigerians the opportunity to pray for the country’s unity and development as well as the president’s.
Ediwe said it should be noted that despite all the challenges and tribulation, Nigeria witnessed God’s faithfulness.
He said that there is the need to seek the face of the Lord in the upcoming year as an assurance that the forces of darkness that have conspired against the country and President Buhari shall be exposed.
He also prophesied that the year 2021 will be a year of peace and prosperity for Nigeria.
The cleric enjoined Nigerians to come out in their numbers to join sessions intended to place the country in good stead to weather through the year 2021 in divine grace and abundance.
“Our strength in diversity and unity has indeed been tremendous in all our programmes over the years. And this much we are grateful to all our members that have displayed an unquantifiable belief in Nigeria and our love for Nigeria knows no bounds.”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that NIFROP had reacted to the release of the schoolboy kidnapped from Government Science School, Kankara in Katsina state.
The group led by Bishop Sunday Garuba said NIFROP welcomed the release of the schoolboys through the efforts of the federal government.
Garuba said the students’ release is an evidence of God’s faithfulness upon Nigeria and her people.
