According to The Punch, a Nigerian newspaper, current President Muhammadu Buhari seems to have won in the Nigerian Presidential Election of 2019. But this is not without anger and skepticism from those who are not for Buhari.
Many people are accusing the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) of staging delays, propagating violence, and generally acting in a corrupt way. With half of the country convinced that their own nation has not acted in a fair and transparent way, the country could very easily become even more divided, angry and corrupt than it already has been.
The United States has seen this too, with the election of President Trump. We need wholeness—and that can only come through Christ. Please pray with me that the INEC would be investigated to see if these claims are true, and that our lands would be more whole, fair, and, most importantly, Christ-centered.
“Dear Lord Jesus,
We have gone away from You. Our nations have tried to live without You, disobeying Your Commands, killing Your Children, and becoming more and more corrupt.
We need You, Lord Jesus, more than ever. We pray that You would invade Nigeria and the United States, and every nation for that matter. May there be revival there, Jesus. Show us how we need to be, and restore our lands.
Please bring any corruption from the INEC to light, and cause there to be peace in Nigeria.
In Jesus’ Most Holy Name we pray,
“The king’s heart is like a stream of water directed by the LORD; he guides it wherever he pleases.”
(Proverbs 21:1, NLT)
