The leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria has announced three days of fasting for Nigeria in the bid for the country to revive Nigeria from economic recession.
The decision of the CAN leadership was contained in a statement on Tuesday.
The fasting has been scheduled for September 21 (today) to Friday September 23, 2016.
According to the statement signed by Pastor Adebayo Oladeji, the Special Assistant (Media) to the CAN President, Rev. Samson Olasupo Ayokunle, the prayer and fasting will be for the nation, President Muhammadu Buhari and his team.
The statement added: “We call on all Christians nation-wide to seek the face of God for divine intervention as our political leaders are seeking for the panacea to the economic recession and the attendant problems.”
The statement quoted 2 Chronicles 7:14 to back up the call.
The Bible passage states: “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
