Nigerian Christians have been urged to unite and seek divine intervention on the current security challenges facing the country with one voice, even as they are told not to despair in the face of insecurity making life more difficult for the people.

The Vice Chairman of the Bauchi State Council of the Christian Council of Nigeria (CCN), Reverend Sunday Olobo, made the call at the annual revival programme of the council.

He told the Christian faithful that though things were really bad in Nigeria now, being believers in God, they had to always stand in the gaps.

“We are all aware that things have gone really bad in this country; no one is sure of what happens next. Situations are terrible. But in the face of all these, we need to stand firmly in faith. We need to raise our voices to God for divine intervention,” Olobo declared.

While submitting that the government ought to be held responsible for the state of things in Nigeria now, the clergyman advised Christian to stop speaking evil about the country and the government, adding that they should rather prophesy positively about the country.

Olobo declared that the faithful only have to tell God what they were going through, though He was aware of it but He wanted the believers to remind Him.

According to him, “Yes, we had high hopes in 2015 that things would get better but our hopes had been dashed. That does not mean that we should continue to lament. No, we should raise our voices and hearts to God for the healing of the land.

“We are yearning for restoration because things have gone bad. We only have to tell God what situation we are going through. He is aware but He wants us to remind Him. Let us use the revival program to stand in the gap for Nigeria.”

While declaring that despite the current challenges, Nigeria would not break up, the clergyman warned the political class not to take the grace of God for granted, noting that doing such would be a costly mistake.

On his part, the state Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Rev (Dr) Abraham Damina Dimeus, emphasised the importance of prayers by all Christians in the country for Nigeria’s situation to be salvaged.

He lamented that the body of Christ in Nigeria is divided along denominational lines, a development he said was not good for the Christians if the persecution of the church had to be stopped.
