The Christian Association of Nigeria Monday called for the commencement of 31 days of national fasting and prayers to save Christians and Nigerians from imminent danger and disintegration.
The Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria, South West zone, Archbishop Magnus Adeyemi Atilade, who spoke with newsmen in Lagos said, “Christians all over the Nigeria, particular in the South west should embark on prayer and fasting commencing from Tuesday to February 14 to abate insurgencies and promote peaceful co-existence of Nigerians irrespective of our religious differences.
The Archbishop lamented the rate at which Christians were killed in the northern part of the country, enjoined all to partake in the spiritual exercise.
He said Christians all over Nigeria should pray that the religious carnage in the north of Nigeria shall be eliminated rather than it being replicated in other parts of the country.
“According to 2013 World Watch List report, 66 per cent of Christians killed globally were from Nigeria. So we need to pray for the church in Nigeria that every conspiracy that has been conceived against believers in this 2014 shall fail.”
