Lawan: Nigeria Needs To Pray More To Overcome Challenges by Tundemanias: 10:09pm On Oct 16, 2019
The President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, said on Wednesday that Nigeria needs prayers to overcome its challenges.

Given the situation, we are in today, the various challenges that Nigeria and its people face, we even need to pray more,” Lawan said while receiving in audience a delegation of the Christian Legislators’ Fellowship of the National Assembly.

The delegation was led by the Deputy Senate President, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege. The Senate Chief Whip, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu was also in attendance at the meeting.

The mission was to invite the Senate President to the 10th National Prayer Breakfast scheduled to hold on 31st October, 2019 at the International Conference Center, Abuja.

The Senate President said the Prayer Breakfast was timely and urged all to first seek the face of God for answered prayers ahead of the programme.

Today, we face serious security challenges. Where we have security agencies which are mandated to ensure that we are secured and protected, if nothing, we should pray for them that they are able to perform well.

It is not only in empowering them with weapons; the power of God is beyond weapons. I’m sure that all people of faith will continue to pray for our security agencies to protect us,” Lawan said.

The Senate President, who also mentioned challenges in the economy, said as leaders, “we have the responsibility to ensure that we continue to provide leadership, to continue to seek the intervention of God in the way and manner that we lead our people.

We have to do whatever we can to be as truthful, transparent and accountable to our people.”

This, he said, requires the guidance of God, adding that nobody can achieve anything without the blessings and mercies of the Almighty God.

I believe that this country needs prayers, and that this country needs unity amongst all faith. We all worship one God, and he is the only way through which we can have our country led properly,” Lawan said.

The President of the Fellowship, Senator Emmanuel Bwacha, who is also the Senate Deputy Minority Leader, said the National Prayer Breakfast is an annual event organised by Christians in National Assemblies and Congresses all over the world.

That's a pity. I would have thought working more was the answer to our problems, and not praying to God who already has.

Prayers never helped anybody who wasn't willing to work hard like he never prays.

Mr Senate President, Nigerians wouldn't need to pray if you would just do your job diligently. You know it, and we know it.

Maybe Lawan is unaware but we've been praying, fasting and starving for decades and nothing has changed.

All the prayers from Christians and Muslims has changed nothing but increase religious tensions and enrich greedy religious leaders.

An insightful leader should rather concentrate on directly changing the laughable condition of Nigeria by making reasonable reforms.

I weep for my People.

So downtrodden Nigerians should be doing the prayers while these greedy lots continue to embezzle the money and fixing their generation in choice agencies of govt.

Ain't praying any shit for these leaders anymore. If I do, then it's God please nuke this country & let us start afresh.

Do you pray when you corruptly allocate slot of jobs to your cronies meant for all Nigerians?

Do you pray when you budget 5bn for vehicles when inflation is on double digit?

If you have nothing to say, you should just keep quiet.

Prayer will not do anything for Nigeria. God hate fools who can't use their brains. Brain is not for decoration.
Is it God that will regulate the activities of Tanker drivers on our bad roads?
Is it God that will come and fix the roads?
Is it God that will expose evil and false religious leaders who can do anything they like.
Is it God that will fix the economy? What is the job of economists.
Whenever there is a challenge in Nigeria we start screaming God. The leaders are lazy and always quick to blame the youths. YOU ARE ALL LAZY POLITICIANS WHO LACK THE CAPACITY TO LEAD.
God is not developing the developed countries, we all have same brain except we prefer not to make use of ours in Nigeria. WE ONLY APPLY OUR BRAINS TO RELIGION AND TRIBALISM. if we dedicate a thousand years to praying nothing will happen.

We need each and every Geo political zones to manage their resources, talents n structural benefit to creates a better life for it people.. We've been praying for ages now, so we should try something else.

When you gave clothed chimps like that destroying the country as so-called leaders, obviously there is no headway. Their sense of reasoning is not as logical as that if common ants; soldier ants or leaves cutter ants.
