Ready to enjoy outdoors?

With the great weather comes the excitement of spending more time with family and friends outdoor. Tick borne diseases are also common around this time.

The Lyme disease is transmitted to humans through the bite of an infected blacklegged tick. Fever, headache skin rash and fatigue are some of the typical symptoms of the disease.

Prayer for Nigeria Zoom Meeting

Calvary greetings beloved!

We are having a zoom meeting on Saturday, May 7, 2022, from 4:00P.M Prompt.

Prayer Points for June 4, 2022, PFN (Prayer for Nigeria) Zoom Meeting Time: 4-6 pm.

1. That God will put an end to the epidemic of kidnappings, banditry, and ritual killings in all parts of Nigeria, particularly from the Fulani herdsmen, Okada riders, bandits and ritualists – 1 Corinthians 6:9-10; Do you not know that the covetous, nor drunkards nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.

2. That God will change the hearts and minds of our youth from engaging in money rituals and get-rich quick scams, 419 and yahoo yahoo, etc.etc. – Jeremiah 17:11; As a partridge that hatches eggs which it has not laid, so is he who makes a fortune, but unjustly. In the midst of his days, it will forsake him, and in the end, he will be a fool

3. That God will grant to Nigeria the Spirit of reconciliation to bring Nigerians back again as one, unite the dissatisfied sections of our country, and restore the unity and peace on which our country was founded – Mathew 12: 22-28, “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation.

4. That God will increase opportunities for gainful employment opportunities for the youth in Nigeria, to prevent them from engaging in criminal activities inimical to the economy of the country – Proverbs 22:6, “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it”

5. That God will restore our economic prosperity and destroy the forces that are sabotaging our economic recovery – Isaiah 44:3: “For I will pour water on the thirsty land…”

6. That God will cause the significant reduction of the prices of commodities (fuel, electricity, foodstuffs, equipment’s) in Nigeria, to help the common man, and ensure an adequate supply of commodities to enable the masses to survive. Matthew 6:31: ‘Take no thought, saying, what shall we eat? or, what shall we drink? or, wherewithal 2 shall we be clothed? Philippians 4:19: “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus”

7. That God should destroy the epidemic of nepotism and tribalism in the Nigerian society and ensure that meritocracy and fairness would be the standards on which appointments and promotions will be based, remove the cancer of selfishness and greed in our citizenry, and raise up godly men and women who would hate corruption and follow the will of God in their lives. Romans 2:11: “For there is no respect of persons with God”. Proverbs 16:11: “A just weight and balance are the Lord’s, all the weights of the bag are his work”

8. That God will start a revival over the land of Nigeria with the conviction of the Holy Spirit in the hearts of men, women and children for sin, righteousness, and judgement. Psalm 85:6: “Wilt thou do not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee”?
