There is no doubt that President Muhammadu Buhari needs more prayers from every Nigerian now than before. The reason is not far-fetched. First, he needs prayers for a sound health, even though the presidency has not come out to tell Nigerians his true state of health. Second, he also needs prayers at this critical stage, especially when the unity of the country is threatened by killings of innocent souls by suspected Boko Haram insurgents and on the need for the country to get back on its right track economically.
But opinions differ on this because many people believe that the solution to the problems plaguing Nigeria currently is not prayer, rather, it is the will power to do the right thing at the right time by the government of the day.
In his latest piece,we explain why he is not duty bound to pray for President Buhari as being canvassed by many Nigerians. He also proffers four reasons he would pray for Nigeria rather than the president.
Everybody prays for PMB, prays for PBM, is it by force?
These are the questions for you to answer before you decide to pray or not:
1. When is the last time the person you are praying for visited a clergyman as a president? But he did that many times while seeking votes from Nigerians.
2. What effort is he making to keep the peace of the religions in your country?
3. In what way is PMB government affecting the religious leaders either nagtively or positively, especially the Christian bodies?
4. What effort has he made to stop killings in Southern Kaduna and the Fulani herdsmen in some states? The Bible made us to understand that the prayer of a SINNER is abomination unto the Lord, either you pray for him or to yourself.
Now, PMB needs the prayer of Christians for his health, tell him I will not pray for him. I will pray for Nigeria’s leaders for good health and long life and if he benefits from my general prayer for the nation, praise God. God bless you all
