Prayer Points For The Week: Feb 5 - Feb 11, 2023



THANKSGIVING & WORSHIP:  Psm_30:5 “For His anger endures but a moment; in His favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning” It’s a new season for Nigeria and Nigerians – including you and I, and our families. Raise a glad sound in faith. Join the heavenly throng in faith to raise a glad sound over Nigeria and the Body of Christ. Weeping is set to be rolled away. Praise God for all He has done for you, your family, the Church and Nigeria through 2022….& for 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). Also repent for the contributions of Christians to the woes of believers and of Nigeria by ignoring prophetic warnings.

FOCUS:  Let There Be Light



Please sing each stanza of the hymn; then pray after each stanza for the Church and the nation and where appropriate, yourself and your family too according to the words of that verse. If you do not know the tune and wish to, search in YouTube or your browser with the first line of the hymn.

            SONG                                                              PRAYERS

1 THOU whose Almighty Word                     Lord, let Your voice that breaks cedars thunder
Chaos and darkness heard,                           All chaos and darkness in Nigeria, flee. Your time is up
And took their flight;
Hear us, we humbly pray,                             Mighty God, please hear us and confirm our words
And where the gospel-day                            Let there be light among all not yet impacted by the gospel
Sheds not its glorious ray,                            Let the glorious rays of the gospel envelop me, Nigeria etc
Let there be light!

2 Thou, who didst come to bring                 Thank You for coming to save us, the great price You paid
On thy redeeming wing                                 Lord cover me, mine, & Nigeria with Thy redeeming wings
Healing and sight;                                         Please Lord bring healing and sight as You alone can
Health to the sick in mind,                            Let those who kill for power and money, all sick in mind
Sight to the inly blind,                                   Let those who see men as trees, as prey, all inly blind
O now to all mankind                                    O among all mankind, especially in Nigeria
Let there be light!                                          Let there be light… Please Lord, flood Your light anew

3 Spirit of truth and love,                              Great Holy Spirit, we need You more than ever
Life-giving, holy Dove,                                  Please bring fresh life to me, mine and unto Nigeria
Speed forth thy flight;                                   Come speedily, please, Lord; come now
Move on the waters' face,                
Spreading the beams of grace,                     Look not upon anything we deserve, there’s nothing good
And in earth's darkest place                         Is this not earth’s darkest place? By grace, please, Lord
Let there be light!                                          Let there be light; Nigeria, let there be light

4 Blessed and holy Three,
Glorious Trinity,
Grace, love, and might,
Boundless as ocean's tide,
Rolling in fullest pride,                                  Lord, let Your love, Your light, Your grace pound
Through the world far and wide,                  As waves, let them flood out darkness and evil
Let there be light!                                          Unto the farthest ends of earth, let Your praise resound
