Following the recent abduction and gruesome killings of innocent Nigerians, the leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has declared Friday, 31st January to 2nd February 2020 as days for special fasting and prayer for Nigeria in all churches, home and abroad.
According to a statement by the chairman of CAN, His Eminence Dr. Samson Ayokunle, the fasting is for the gruesome killing of innocent Nigerians to stop.
Dr. Ayokunle further stated that this fasting is for the Nigerian government to develop the capacity to overcome the criminals troubling the nation.
The Christian body also declared a special prayer walk which would take place on the 2nd of February 2020.
“Sunday 2nd February 2020 is declared a Special Prayer Walk by Christians in all the States of the Federation in the form of a procession to be led by States CAN Chairmen in their CAN Secretariats and pastors of churches in all churches in Nigeria,” Dr. Ayokunle declared.
He urged churches to process round their area, pray for God’s permanent intervention and help from all over the world so that all Christians might not be consumed one by one.
As far as Dr. Ayokunle is concerned, it appears that the government is completely overwhelmed with the brutality of Nigerians which he says is happening unabated daily.
The CAN Chairman asked all Bloc Leaders, Zonal and States Chairmen, Leaders of Denominations and all Christians and concerned Nigerians to support and come out en-mass for the program.
