Prayer Points For The Week: Jan 8 - Jan 14, 2023



THANKSGIVING & WORSHIP:  Psa_34:1  “I will bless the LORD at all times: His praise shall continually be in my mouth” How much and how long would you like to praise and worship God this year? God has kept us another whole year…as a loving Shepherd, leading us in the way of life and peace. Jesus Christ has paved way for all these mercies and blessings. Give God thanks, for sending Jesus Christ and paving way for us to be partakers of the blessings of Abraham. Also praise God for all He has done for you, your family, the Church and Nigeria through 2022….& for yet greater things He is set to do in 2023.

REPENTANCE: Ask God for mercy and forgiveness for all of your sins, your family’s, the Church and Nigeria; pray for grace to turn and live in obedience; that our land may be healed (2 Chron. 7.14).




  • MERCY REIGN: Exo_25:21-22 “And thou shalt put the mercy seat above upon the ark; and in the ark thou shalt put the testimony that I shall give thee. And there I will meet with thee, and I will commune with thee from above the mercy seat” Pray that the Lord seat upon His mercy seat, relate to His children in Nigeria and the nation itself in mercy, and let His mercy reign above ALL in this crucial year for our nation
  • NOT DESTITUTE OF MERCY: Gen_24:27“Blessed be the LORD God of my master Abraham, who hath not left destitute my master of His mercy and His truth: I being in the way, the LORD led me…” Pray to the Lord that per the promised blessings of Abraham, compounded in Christ Jesus, let mercy abound unto us.
  • MAGNIFIED MERCY: Gen_19:19“Behold now, Thy servant hath found grace in thy sight, and thou hast magnified thy mercy, which thou hast showed unto me in saving my life; and I cannot escape to the mountain, lest some evil take me, and I die” Pray that like Lot in Sodom, the Lord will show you, your family, the Church and Nigeria no ordinary mercy but magnified mercy...and help us not to take the mercy for granted and shy off rigorously seize His grace and escape to a mountain of safety for ourselves and Nigeria
  • NAVIGATED BY MERCY: Gen_24:27“Blessed be the LORD God …who hath not left destitute my master of his mercy and his truth: I being in the way, the LORD led me…” Pray that by the outworking of God’s mercy, you, your family, the Church and Nigeria shall not miss the way this 2023. We shall hit perfect and glorious destination in our affairs, in His service, in the emergence of a new national leader, not because of our skill, prudence or wisdom but by the effect of His mercy

  • VICTORIOUS BY MERCY: Gen_39:21“But the LORD was with Joseph, and showed him mercy, and gave him favour…” The rise of Joseph was in furtherance of God’s promise to Abraham and of God’s agenda for Israel.
