Independence: CAN Calls For 3 Days Fasting & Prayers

The Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, has called for a 3-day fasting and prayer session for the nation in commemoration of its 56th independence anniversary coming up on October 1st.

The CAN President, Samson Ayokunle, in a statement from his head of media and publicity, Adebayo Oladeji, said the prayers will be for the nation and its president, Muhammadu Buhari.

He noted that although the times were hard, God will show his mercies to Nigeria if the nation prays to God. He called on Nigerians to use the opportunity of the anniversary to talk to God about Nigeria’s many challenges.

“We call on all Christians nation-wide to seek the face of God for divine intervention as our political leaders are seeking for the panacea to the economic recession and the attendant problems,” he said quoting 2 Chronicles 7:14.
