Prayer Points For The Week: Dec 11 - Dec 17 2023

Monday 11th – Sunday 17th December, 2023


Last week, there were some posts on WhatsApp in which some Christian elites were rejoicing over the appointment of new Supreme Court justices because seven out of the eleven justices were "Christians." It is good to rejoice at the promotion of our brethren, but not like those elites who went on therefore to celebrate their support for the unfortunate Muslim-Muslim ticket. They went as far as saying that those Christians who opposed the Muslim-Muslim ticket should go to God and ask forgiveness. What an irony!

When Jesus taught us the Lord’s Prayer, after worship, the first request He taught us to make was, “Thy KINGDOM come”. Christianity is about the “Kingdom”. The gospel of Jesus is the gospel of the Kingdom. If Christian leaders do not understand this, how would the Church positively impact the world?

Every kingdom has a throne, and whoever controls the throne controls that kingdom. The Muslims in Nigeria strategically aimed for the throne, then passed down mere portfolios to certain Christians! Have those Christian elites rejoicing over mere appointments forgotten what happened in Egypt?

In Egypt, Pharaoh told Joseph in Genesis 41:40–43, “Thou shalt be over my house, and according unto thy word shall all my people be ruled: only in the throne will I be greater than thou. And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, See, I have set thee over all the land of Egypt. And Pharaoh took off his ring from his hand, and put it upon Joseph's hand, and arrayed him in vestures of fine linen, and put a gold chain about his neck; And he made him to ride in the second chariot which he had; and they cried before him, Bow the knee: and he made him ruler over all the land of Egypt.”

Undiscerning Jews in Egypt might have rejoiced that their “brother” had become Prime Minister in the land, the same way that some of our Christian elites are rejoicing at ministerial and judicial appointments. Pharaoh handed the whole of Egypt over to Joseph, but he kept back the throne for himself. The throne that exalted Joseph was the same throne that placed the children of Israel in bondage for 430 years!

* Whereas Pharaoh apparently handed Egypt over to Joseph, he kept the throne to himself.
* Nebuchadnezzar handed Babylon over to Daniel, but he did not hand over the throne.
* Darius gave the Medo-Persian empire to Daniel, yet he too did not also give the throne.
* In present day Britain, Rishi Sunak, of Indian descent, is the Prime Minister, but King Charles, an Englishman, holds the throne.
No king hands over their throne, except some Nigerian Christian leaders who, as priests and kings to God, do not understand the value of the throne. May God save Christian leaders from spiritual blindness.

The Muslims have often aimed for the throne in Nigeria. Today, their Christian collaborators are rejoicing at mere appointments, but the throne is bidding its time. The Muslims have taken the Presidency and the Vice Presidency, then given the Senate to a reckless Christian who allegedly took N800 million of state money for his private birthday celebration. They allowed him, so that they could have a long and thick rope to hang him with when the time comes. They have done it before.

Apart from the Presidency and Vice, they have the Number 4 position in the person of the Speaker of the House, and the Number 5 position as the CJN. In other words, they have secured for themselves the prime No 1, No 2, No 4 and No 5 positions, yet some Christians still blindly celebrate mere appointments.

Today, they are giving certain Christians some apparently 'juicy positions,' because they still need them, especially this early in the game. After all, Christians at present have more skilled manpower in Nigeria than the Muslims have. Just as Pharaoh realized that he needed Joseph, so do they realize that they still need the Christians, while they keep building their own manpower. The day they believe that they no longer need you, that day you will realize the power of the throne.

Those who are now rejoicing should think far. What will happen to their children? The power of the throne is in the hand of those who do not believe in your God. Anyone who assumes that a throne that answers to Satan will favour the followers of Jesus Christ must be truly undiscerning and very spiritually unwise.

It is the supporters and promoters of the Muslim-Muslim ticket that should go to God in repentance, in dust and ashes. The gospel that Christians are called to preach is the gospel of the Kingdom, not the gospel of appointments, of garlics and cucumbers. They should go to God and plead with Him to forgive them. They have compromised the interest of the Kingdom of God in Nigeria.

For the rest of us, it is time to pray for the throne and declare, “Thy kingdom come.”


1). Isaiah 42:18–20
Pray for God’s mercy and forgiveness upon the Church. Plead that God would not deal with the Church according to the blindness and ignorance of its leaders.

2). Isa. 28:14-15
The Satanist, Alice Bailey, told her disciples, “Whatever change you implement on the ground, get the Church to endorse it, get the Church to officially cede ground”. That's what is happening in our world now.

Pray that God will diminish and silence every Christian leader who is using their spiritual authority in the Church to endorse evil thrones and promote unrighteous leaders in Nigeria. Pray that heaven shall revoke their endorsement.

3). Joel 2:15–17
Pray for genuine repentance amongst Christian leaders in Nigeria.

4). Ps. 94:20
Pray that the throne of iniquity in Nigeria shall be dismantled by God.

5). Prov. 29:2
The word of God says that when the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice. For many years, Nigerians have not been rejoicing. Pray for the promotion of righteous men and women into positions of authority in the country. Pray that the David whom God promised Nigeria shall manifest.

6). Rev. 11:15
Pray that Nigeria shall become the kingdom of our God and of His Christ. Pray that the throne of Nigeria shall become the throne of Christ (Matt. 6:10).

7). Genesis 1:1-2
In a revelation shared last week at the National Prayer Altar, a sister saw Nigeria opened before her, and the Holy Spirit hovering over the country. Pray that, as in Genesis 1, the Holy Spirit shall alight upon Nigeria and the light of God shall break forth over Nigeria. Pray that the light of God shall destroy every power of darkness in Nigeria. Amen.
