Pray For President Buhari, CAC Cleric Urges Christians
The President, Christ Apostolic Church. (CAC) Worldwide, Pastor Abraham Akinosun on Saturday urged churches to stop complaining but pray for President Muhammadu Buhari to overcome challenges facing the nation.
Pastor Akinosun made the appeal while ministering the Grand Finale of a Seven-Day Fasting and Prayer at Ikoyi Mountain Ero-Omo Village, Osun for the nation on Saturday morning.
The prayer was organised by the General Overseer, Signs and Wonders Prayer Ministries, Evangelist Felix Adunpe, in collaboration with the CAC, held between April 21 and April 27.
Pastor Akinosun, who was the former Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), said that only God could redeem Nigeria from her present predicaments.
According to the cleric, who read from Psalm 122: 6 and Jeremiah 29:11, God loves Nigeria and would heal the nation of her current socio-economic and security challenges with prayers.
“Leaders fail when people fail to pray. Stop abusing and cursing our leaders because as you curse them the consequences will be borne by all citizens.
“If we pray for our leaders, God will inspire them and everything will be alright. We should not lose hope in Nigeria.
According to Akinosun, Nigerians must bring to fore sincere love for the country and shun hatred because it is the only country we possess.
The cleric, who cautioned against self defence, said that such step would make killings more rampant in the nation.
The cleric, who urged the Federal Government to restructure the security architecture of the country, expressed dissatisfaction over recurrent killings and economic hardship facing Nigerians.
Akinosun, who also called for an end corruption, ritualism, kidnapping, urged the political leaders to be alert to their responsibility and be selfless to end crisis.
He later led the people into serious prayer for nation’s redemption and intervention in her governance, saying sacking the President would not solve Nigeria’s problem.
