Prayer is a formidable key used to unlock the world of impossibilities. The place of prayer is the place you argue your case or better put present your case before the throne of Grace. And you can be sure to get an answer. It is a spiritual missile and armor that reaches everywhere in the world. It is very necessary in times of confusion because it gives direction. It is the only way out. In times of hopelessness, it gives hope and brings comfort in times of distress and depression. Also in times of danger, it gives protection and security.
In recent times, there has been an uprising all over our nation Nigeria. There has been a constant peaceful protest which was triggered as a result of bad governance and irregularities in the government which had brought about loss of lives, unemployment and brutality on citizens by force men. And so, it’s as though the center can no longer hold since the youth of the Nigerian nation took to the streets to show how displeased they have been for the past 5 years.
For this reason, the International President and Founder; Rev. Mrs Nches Iredu saw how deeply hurt every Nigerian is at this moment, and owning to the fact that in SFI, this month was declared to be the month of Prayer; Mummy went ahead and gathered members of SFI, to pray for God’s intervention just as it is stated thus in the bible “when the wicked rules a nation the people suffer but when the righteous is in power the people rejoice and there is peace and tranquility.”
The International President through the eyes of the spirit said that only God can intervene in Nigeria’s case and this led her to declare a solemn fast for members of SFI since last week Monday (12/10/2020). Since then, SFI members together with the International President gathered at the SFI transformation camp to pray for the nation. Prayers have been ongoing, for God to intervene and bring an end to the bad governance. Just like the bible says in the book of Joel 2:17: “Let the priests, the ministers of the Lord, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare thy people, O LORD, and give not thine heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the people, Where is their God?”
Therefore, just like there has been a prayer walk all over the country in different states and locations, the International President Rev. Mrs. Nches Iredu led these women in this one week of prayers and fasting, and this prayer, will continue till the end of this month. You can look up the dates to know when you can join in the prayers. Just like Mummy said, prayer, is the only way out of this quagmire and only those who know their God shall be strong and do exploits.
