Over 5,000 persons are set for a prayer session in Calabar, Cross River State to seek God’s intervention in the security challenges facing the country.
Speaking to reporters on Sunday in Calabar on the preparation for a one-day conference, the President, Christian Central Chapel, Bishop Emmah Isong, said it had become imperative for men of God and some other professionals to come together to pray for the country.
He said, “It is an Apostolic visit as Christians Association of Nigeria, Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria leaders, the political class and traditional rulers are already in town to participate in the prayer-of-all-prayer conference. We’ll also pray for their Christian brothers in the North who have been passing through turbulent times in the wake of Boko Haram insurgency.
“It will be a platform to pray for Nigeria and Cross River State to seek the face of God as the country is undergoing different satanic and security issues in the last couple of months.
“It is very strategic because of the time it is happening and so we will endeavour to pray for our leaders to give them the strength and wisdom to continue to lead us well. The country is shaking so we need voice of reasoning outside prayers.”
The cleric also said members of the House of Representatives, who condemned the non -implementation of the 100 per cent of the nation’s budget, were speaking from the point of knowledge, adding that the threat to impeach the president was “too much a punishment”.
