Due to the fluid nature of the situation here in Nigeria, it would be inadvisable to post details of our trip day by day. So I have decided to post a prayer every night. This prayer will be informed by what I have learned over the course of the day but will contain no specifics. I encourage you to pray along with me and hope you enjoy this means of participation.
The First Day’s Prayer
Lord I thank you for travel mercies, and a long long day now done.
I thank you for this marvelous opportunity and pray that you would direct us to see just what you want us to see.
Lord I praise you for the mighty hearts of the Nigerian Christians. They have endured so much for so long.
Oh God, I pray that your grace would be on them to sustain them, for when 3 weeks without a murderous explosion is considered relatively peaceful, Lord the trials are heavy indeed.
Lord we pray that you would raise up a just government in Nigeria, one which would fulfill your mandate to keep order in society.
I pray your blessing and protection on our trip
In Jesus Name
