Prayer Points For The Week: Dec 25 2023 - Jan 1 2024

Monday 25th December 2023 – Sunday 1st January 2024


Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand. (Dan. 12: 10)

In Heb. 11:7, the Bible says, “Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house;” Lot escaped from Sodom and Gomorrah with his two daughters because they responded to God’s warning. In recent times, the late founder of Full Gospel Businessmen Fellowship International, Demos Shakarian, escaped the Ottoman holocaust in Turkey. According to the family of Demos Shakarian “escaped the holocaust due to a warning from a Pentecostal prophet whom God had raised up to warn the nation of the disaster that would come upon them. The Shakarian family heeded the words of the prophet and fled to America where Demos grew up in the Pentecostal Church.”

In recent years, God has been warning Christians in Nigeria about the danger posed by political Islam, but most Church leaders and influential Christian elites have dismissed the warnings as "fear mongering and politics." At present, both violent and stealth jihad are running full steam in Nigeria.

Whenever Church leaders are cautioned about their brand of politics that throws the weight of the Church behind Muslim candidates, they retort that those who are warning them do not understand politics. Meanwhile, their perceived understanding of politics has not prevented tens of thousands of Christians from being murdered in Nigeria.

Today, in a country where Christians are clearly in the majority, political jihad has taken the Nos 1, 2, 4, and 5 of the five topmost offices in the country. Educational jihad has lowered the standard of education, diplomatic jihad has tactfully included Nigeria as member of Islamic delegations of the OIC, while agricultural jihad has designated Nigeria as "food hub" for OIC member countries. On top of these, violent jihad has given Nigeria an unenviable global record of 89% of Christian mortalities based on faith-based persecution.

Last week, the Minister of Finance reportedly announced that Nigeria will adopt the Islamic model of finance because the world can no longer adopt “elevated interest rates”. Islam primarily means religion. When did Islam become an economic model for secular states? How could one reconcile adoption of Islamic finance with the constitutional provision that the government "shall not adopt any religion as state religion"? Is this not a violation of the Constitution? Did China, Japan, and India adopt Islamic finance to grow their economy?

Some things are hiding in plain sight while Christians keep their eyes wide shut. “Adam was not deceived.” The wise shall understand.

The solution is not to flee the country. The solution is for Christians to reorganize and reposition the Church. There is a war of supremacy between the Kingdom of God and that of darkness in Nigeria. At present, the Church has been compromised on many fronts, but the Most High reigns supreme in the kingdoms of men. If Christians arise, the tide will turn in favour of the Church.

It is time for the sons of Issachar to arise in the Church and demand a reorganization of Christianity in Nigeria. It is time for renewed vigour in the place of intercession and prayers. It would be naïve of Christians to adopt a simplistic approach to these issues. It is certain that something sinister is brewing.

The wise shall understand.


1. Luke 1:68–75

3. James 1:5
Pray for divine wisdom to guide Christians as they respond to existential threats in Nigeria.

4. Job 5:12–14
Pray that God will disappoint the devices and craftiness of all who conspire against Nigeria and the Christians in the country. Their counsel shall not stand and none of their plans shall come to pass.

5. Ps 2
Pray that all the forces, both physical and spiritual, that conspire against Jesus Christ and His Church in Nigeria, shall be broken in pieces with a rod of iron.

6. Ezekiel 34:7–11
Pray that God will execute judgment on all Balaams in the Church, who through greed and covetousness, cheaply betray the Kingdom of God.

7. Rev. 11:15
Decree by the authority of the word of God that Nigeria is the Kingdom of our God and of His Christ.
