Prayer Points For The Week: Oct 16 - Oct 22 2023

Monday 16th October – Sunday 22nd October 2023


1 Cor. 11: 31 For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.

There are two ways in which controversies are resolved with God: through repentance by man or judgment from God. Whenever man offends God then turns to God in genuine repentance, judgment is averted. However, if man does not repent, he incures God’s wrath and judgment.

From the current state of the Nigerian Church, it is evident that there are controversies between God and the Church. We are aware that the apex body of Christianity organized a solemn assembly in 2022. Regrettably, whatever might have been the benefit of that gathering, it was frittered away when the Church turned around and threw its weight again behind a jihadist party in the 2023 elections. The endorsement by the Church, of the controversial jihadist candidate, calls for fresh introspection by Christians. It is spiritually insensitive of Church leaders to endorse a political party that supervised genocide against Christians.

The National Prayer Altar is calling for 3 days of solemn assembly in October 2023 to offer repentance to God on behalf of the Nigeria Church. We have the assurance of God in 2 Chro. 7: 14 that “If My people, which are called by My name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek My face … I will hear from heaven … and heal their land.” God wants to hear from “His people”.


1. Hosea 6: 1 – 2: Pray for a penitent heart amongst Nigerian Christians. Pray that the hearts of the Christians shall be tender, and the Church shall acknowledge its faults before God.
Rom. 2: 4: Pray that the goodness of the Lord shall lead Nigerian Christians to repentance.

2. Joel 2: 15 – 17: Pray that Church leaders shall be broken and penitent to offer genuine repentance to God.
Pray that there shall be deliberate forsaking of the pride and covetousness of some Church leaders that weakened Christianity in Nigeria.

3. Mal. 2: 6 - 7: Pray that God shall sanctify the leaders of the Church in Nigeria. Pray that the scandals and evil reports associated with Christian leadership shall be heard no more.

4. Gal. 1: 8 – 9: Pray that God will speedily judge all those who teach error and pervert the gospel of Jesus Christ.

5. 1 Cor. 4: 1 – 2: Pray for faithfulness and integrity amongst leaders of the Church in Nigeria.

6. John 15: 1 – 2: Pray that God will purge the leadership of the Nigeria Church. In addition, pray that God will purge the entire Church of everything that defiles, pollutes, and corrupts the Body of Christ in Nigeria.

7. Rev. 3: 8: Pray for the faithful ministers of God in the land, that God will promote them and place them in positions of authority in the Church.
