We have an urgent phone call for a prayer request from Nigeria today, Friday January 13, from Blessing Jibuike. Her father-in-law who also lives in Nigeria, is Brother Emmanuel Jibuike who is a long-time End-Time Servant and one of the ministry’s directors.
The borders of the nation have been shut and the airport shut down so that nobody can get out. It has been reported that a Jihad group specially trained in Somalia has returned to Nigeria for this Holy War.
Blessing asked that we pray that the Lord of Hosts, Himself, will deliver His people in Nigeria. Pray that the church in Nigeria will be faithful and not be intimidated and for the Blood of Jesus Christ to cover His people. Pray for faith and courage to arise in God’s people that a spirit of fear will not overtake them and that the “peace of God which passeth understanding will keep (their) hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:7)
[Please note that our office has received other, unconfirmed reports, that the banks in Nigeria have closed their doors, so that citizens cannot withdraw their funds.)
– “For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their prayer, but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.” (I Peter 3:12)
