Revelation 13:10….He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity, he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword.
Lord your word in the scripture of today says, he that leads into captivity shall go into captivity, and he that kills with the sword must be killed with the sword.A lot is happening in my country, Nigeria, many people have been slaughtered and they are still been led into captivity. Father we need your help more than before. The Bible says “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. We are in trouble in Nigeria because the level of the killings we have witnessed in this decade is unprecedented and we do not know how many more will still die because of this Jihad. Lord you are the only True God. We remember when the children of Israel were being killed in Egypt and enslaved by the Egyptians, they cried unto You and You came down to rescue them. When Jehoshaphat , king of Israel was bombarded by a great multitude, these are the children of Moab, of Ammon, of mount Seir which were assembled at Engedi, the Bible says, Jehoshaphat feared and set himself to seek the LORD and proclaimed a fast throughout all Judah, Judah gathered together themselves to ask help of the LORD, the LORD spoke through a prophet that they should not be afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude for the battle is not yours, but God’s. God fought the battle for them by setting an ambush against them, and ” the children of Moab, and Ammon stood against the inhabitants of mount Seir, and utterly destroyed them, and when they had made an end of the inhabitants of mount Seir, every one helped to destroy another.” The Lord sent confusion to their midst, and they destroyed themselves.2 Chronicle 20)
Lord, just like you fought the battle for the children of Israel, we need your help in our country. The battle is a spiritual warfare, and we know that You do not want the sinners to perish but to come to repentance. We that know how to seek You have come in humility to ask for your help. We have fasted and praised You, and have also asked for forgiveness of our sins. You are a merciful God, please look unto us with mercy and wipe away our sins and heal our land. The Earth belongs to You, and no single group of people can take over the land that belongs to You. You always encourage us to dwell in PEACE and in LOVE ,but while some people are seeking peace, the other people are after war so that they can be in control of the country. Dear Father we are at our wit’s end and You are the only one that can bring lasting solution to Nigeria. Help us to stop these killings in all the ares where they have dispatched their troops. Holy Father let Your compassion sets in now and help us to send confusion to their midst. Let them know that You are God that owns the whole world. Though we do not know Your plan concerning this country but we know You love us so much and the plan You have for us is good and to take us to an expected end. Remember your beloved servants of God who are still true to their calling, they might be few, but just as You listened to Abraham while he was pleading on behalf of the people of Sodom and Gormorrah before You destroyed them, please listen to the few faithfuls that are standing in the gap for this country. Give them the clue as to know what to do to stop this barbaric action of a set of people. Please do not allow our country to extinct, help us to deal with the bad leaders, and restore peace in the nation. Thank you daddy for hearing my petition tonight and answering us speedily as You did to Jehoshaphat and all other leaders in the nation of Israel We will testify to your goodness and mercies in the lives of all the inhabitants of Nigeria. May You be praised for ever and ever, Amen.
