Goodluck Jonathan Urges Nigerians To Pray For The Nation As He Dedicates First Child

Former President Of Nigeria,
Goodluck Jonathan has charged Nigerians to pray for Nigeria stating that every
country has its period of adversity and period of joy, but with prayers Nigeria
will get to its promise land. The former president stated this while addressing
the congregation at the Word Illumination Ministry in Gwarimpa, Abuja, where
himself, his wife and well-wishers had gathered to dedicate and thank God for
his first grandchild.
“I will just thank God for all he
has been doing for our country and I also thank you all for the prayers for the
good of our country. Whenever I am talking to Christians and other believers
depending on their faith, I always urge them to pray for the country. Every
nation go through two periods; period of adversity and period of joy. Continue…

“For Christians if you read the
Old Testament, you sometime think that the whole world was going to end but God
has a reason for everything. No matter the circumstances we are going through
today, I believe that with the prayers, diligence and hardwork of Nigerians,
God will see this nation through all its tribulations. I always say that the
key and constant thing is Nigeria, and not who is leading the country. It could
be Jonathan today, it could be Buhari, Obasanjo, Shagari, Abdulsalami today,
and it could be anybody else. We have all played our part and as we progress,
others will take over. Maybe some of the people that will take over tomorrow
are also here in this church.
”So, the most important thing is
the nation that belongs to all of us and we must strive to protect and give our
best to what belongs to all of us. And as Christians, we must pray for Nigeria.
The world we are seeing today is so different from the world we saw some years
”In fact when we were in secondary
school, we used to read about the gladiators in our history books, and they
were operating more like in another world… But today we have crisis all over
the world, not just Nigeria. We must realize that God loves this country and we
have very vibrant Christians and I believe that with your persistent prayers,
God will see us through,” he said.
