The religious group also prayed for wisdom for the leadership of the Nigerian armed forces in deploying strategic operations for the rescue of the students.
In a statement signed NIFROP national coordinator, Bishop Sunday Garba, and seen by Legit.ng, the best way for Nigeria to get out of the shackles of the darkness is by the grace of God.
He urged all Nigerians to return to God and ask for His mercy and grace.
Bishop Garba while extending prayers to the families and relatives of the abducted students said it is also important for every Nigeria across the country and abroad to join NIFROP on this spiritual exercise against the plan of the devil.

Bishop Garuba said:
"Our country is in the middle of a great battle, and we know that the best way for us to battle is on our knees. And the best source to turn to is the word of God."
"I declare that those that have conspired against the peace of Nigeria would meet their waterloo in the fullness of time and the righteous in the land shall indeed sing songs of praises to the host of heaven.
He also declared that the insurgents will free the students and any other Nigerian held captive by the terrorists anywhere in Nigeria will return home and alive.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that the Sultan of Sokoto, Saád Abubakar III, had condemned the abduction of school children from the Government Science Secondary School in Kankara.
The Sultan through the secretary-general of the Jama’atu Nasril Islam (JNI), Khalid Aliyu, said the abduction of the school children exposes the lapses in Nigerian security.
He also called on the Nigerian government to immediately secure the release of the students and remain dedicated to securing the lives and property of Nigerians.
