“ Come, and let us return unto the LORD: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up. After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.” Hosea 6: 1-2
The three major prayer themes of the Project, each assigned respectively to the three weeks, are:
✅ WEEK 1: (Monday, April 23rd – Sunday, 29th): REPENTANCE – This should commence with personal repentance. “Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place? He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; …” Ps. 24: 3-4. Each participant should cry to God, “Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me and know my thoughts: …” Ps. 139: 23 – 24. In addition to personal repentance, there are many things to repent of: the compromise of the Church, bloodguilt, witchcraft, the spirit of modern Judases in the church, materialistic seductions and Baalamic sellouts of the Church to beastly political interests, immoralities, covetousness, vanity, greed, pride and arrogance, hero worship, divisions, disunity, tribalism, abandonment of soul winning, abandoning Missionaries and laborers, lack of empathy for persecuted Christians, sale of titles and ordination, worldliness, carnality, lies, doctrinal errors, etc.
✅ WEEK 2: (Monday, April 30th – Sunday, May 6th): Dealing with the atmosphere of SORCERY AND WITCHCRAFT over Nigeria: sorceries of false religions, blood sacrifices, marabouts, cults, fraternities, prognostications, enchantment of foreign nations, etc.
✅ WEEK 3: (Monday, May 7th – Sunday, May 13th): JUDGMENT(in the Sanctuary and in the rest of Nigeria), then DELIVERANCE unto Nigeria from all bondage. Pray for God to teach Nigeria RIGHTEOUSNESS through His JUDGMENT – Is. 26: 9 – 11. Pray that the judgment should start from the Church. 1 Pet. 4: 17. Ask God to purge Nigeria by the Spirit of judgment and burning. Is. 4: 4
Prayer points for each week should be individually developed along the lines of that week’s prayer theme.
✝ Participation in the prayer and fasting is on individual, family, Church, Fellowship, and Group, basis.
✝ For easier coordination, each participating intercessory group (with its many members and others in its network of influence), should take practical steps to advertise this Project in their state, city, church, fellowship, etc., by personal announcements or TV, radio, social media, etc.
✝ The fast shall be from 6.00am to 6.00pm (for those who choose to fast during the day), or 6.00pm to 6.00am (for those who choose the overnight fasting option). The fasting is made flexible to enable each participant pray at least one hour daily during the fast.
✝ Each group should monitor and encourage the participation of its members especially in the hourly daily prayers between 11.00am and 2.00pm (for those who choose to fast in the day) or between 11.00pm and 2.00am (for those who choose the night fast).
✝ Nigerians in the Diaspora, indeed the global Body of Christ, is kindly solicited to join hands with us in this Project.
✝ Each participating group is encouraged to hold a prayer vigil every Friday during the twenty-one days, or a weekly congregational one-hour prayer meeting on whichever day best serves the group.
✝ Campus groups are encouraged, through the JCCF, to ensure an hour of corporate prayers every day, done each day by an assigned large fellowship or by units of smaller fellowships put together for the purpose. This would be apart from the individual hourly prayers by those whose fellowships are not ‘on duty’ on the day.
✝ On the final Sunday, which is the twenty-first day of the fast, participating and facilitating ministries/fellowships/churches are encouraged to congregate massively with other Christians for corporate prayers, and thereafter close with a PASSOVER COMMUNION. This may be done more robustly at the state level, city level, local government level, or even individual household levels. Where it is not possible to so congregate, the respective groups or churches or ministries or households or individuals could conduct their own closing prayers and Passover communion.
✝ At the National level, there shall be a similar gathering from 6.00pm at the National Christian Centre in Abuja, to be attended by the leaders of the respective facilitating intercessory and other groups, or their representatives. The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has already approved the use of that venue for the purpose.
May the Lord strengthen your good hands. Amen.
