Prayer for the Nigerian Presidential Election

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.

Muhammadu Buhari, current President.

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,
Amen.”

The “Little” Victories

It is with great happiness that I am reporting the Nigerian soldiers have captured

not one, but two prominent figures in Boko Haram! Babagana Abubakar (aka Alagarno) was found January 10th with voter identification cards and military gear. A suspected military leader for Boko Haram, called Umar, was also caught on December 20th, 2018 (source). The capture of these two men is incredibly promising, as it shows even the “smaller” victories that the Nigerian government and military is making against Boko Haram!

Our God is a God who hears our prayers; this shows that while He hears our prayers, these “little victories” will happen in His time, not our own. And in the end, He has won for us the greatest victory of them all!

With these truths in mind, may we continue to lift up the Chibok girls, Leah Sharibu, and the Nigerian military! Our God is moving, even if we cannot see Him!

“Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank You for the victory that You have brought! Not only against Boko Haram, but for all who believe in You! You have brought us victory over the enemy and the grave, and we can live with Your Power in our everyday lives!
We now pray that You would move in this war between Boko Haram and Nigeria. Continue to give the soldiers morale and strength, and please keep those who are held captive safe, so that they may be freed and reunited with their loved ones!
In Jesus’ Mighty Name we pray,
Amen!”

The Fight Continues: Being Peacemakers in a Violent World

Surprisingly, I have something to report that I have not seen in the mainstream news. There have been riots in France, as the middle and lower class are protesting the government and higher classes for trying to hike up taxes (sources). The worst of the riots may be over, but the tension and hatred between the upper-class government and middle/lower-class citizens still exists. With this news going on, 13 more Nigerian soldiers and one Nigerian policeman have been killed by Boko Haram (source). Continue reading

Staying Faithful in Blogging

Hi Friends and Readers,
I wanted to ask for prayer, that my passion for these people and praying for them would not go out, but would instead increase. Please pray that, above all else, I would stay faithful to Jesus in writing as He leads. Thank you!

In Christ Jesus,
