Prayers to solve terror, plane crashes

11 October 2013, 10:35Henry Ifeanyi

Lagos – Senators in the National Assembly have resolved to seek divine intervention over the increasing security challenges and the current spate of planes crashes.

To that effect, they have scheduled a prayer session for all religious movements in the country.

This will be held at the National Assembly later this month.

It will be held under the auspices of the National Prayer Breakfast.

Spokesman of the organizers, Senator Ita Enang, in a statement, was confident such moves will avert the problems.

“Against the backdrop of a myriad of problems confronting the country as an entity, the National Assembly will seek the face of God for spiritual solutions to the problems.”

“Through the instrument of our faith, we will pull down all walls and vices that divide us as a nation and provoke the spirit of patriotism and love among Nigerians necessary to propel Nigeria to her rightful place in the comity of nations,” added Enang.

Enang added that President Goodluck Jonathan as well as members the judiciary as well as members of the diplomatic corps were scheduled to attend.

“We hope that as every well-meaning Nigerian join us at the prayer conference, the prayer to God of all creation, to direct our noble cause, guide our leaders aright, help our youths to know the truth and build a nation where peace and justice reign, shall definitely be answered,” added Enang.
