From Ven. Prof. Sam Ike
GOD’S PLAN FOR ALL MEN IN NIGERIA (A REASON TO KEEP PRAYING FOR THE ELECTIONS)
1 Timothy 2:4 – Who (GOD) wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.(NIV)
This passage clearly makes us to know in Vs. 4 that God has a plan for salvation and that plan is that all men will be saved. But how can all men be saved? By prayers, intercessions (Vs. 1 – I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone) and by having men in authority who do not oppose the plan of God by making it favourable to live a godly and holy life (Vs. 2 – for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness).
I am not asking that you pray for any particular candidate to win, but that God will put men who’ll not oppose HIS plan for “ALL MEN” in Nigeria.
Forget about the negative things World leaders have said concerning Nigeria (Job 12:24 – He (GOD) robs world leaders of their reason, and sends them off into no man’s land), God can turn their counsel to nothing if it is not HIS WILL.
Keep praying for Nigeria, for only Christians carry the solution, and we do not win by keeping quiet. We win on our knees.
