The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has directed all its members nationwide to dedicate 30 minutes each day for the next seven days to praise God in the fight against coronavirus.
The organisation said the prayer session should commence with effect from Monday, April 20 to Sunday, April 26.
Legit.ng gathers that the president of CAN, Samson Ayokunle, issued the directive in his memo dated Tuesday, April 14 to each of the leaders of the five blocs in CAN, national officers, state chairmen, chairperson of women in CAN and chairman of its youth wing.
“The Lord ministered strongly to my spirit that we should take a step further in winning the battle over many challenges facing our nation and the church in Nigeria, especially, the present rampaging COVID-19 pandemic by using Paul & Silas’ Praise Approach (Acts. 16: 25-26) to provoke further divine intervention.
“I, therefore, enjoin all Christian families to set aside 30 minutes each day for the next seven days to praise the beauty of God’s Holiness with effect from Monday, April 20 to Sunday, April 26, 2020," said Ayokunle.
The CAN president urged the leadership of the body in the various states to coordinate the special prayers.
"I believe that if we do this with one accord, God will do something very positive soon for us, not only by wiping away the global COVID-19 pandemic, but by also helping us to overcome other challenges facing our dear country and the body of Christ in Nigeria,” he said.
