As Nigeria is going through a difficult situation as a Nation, Christians have been Charged to remain steadfast in prayers and dedicate their lives to God for divine intervention.

They are also admonished to ensure that they live optimally in order to attract His mercy and grace in their lives as true believers, particularly at moments like this.

The charge was given by the Resident Pastor of the Living Faith Church, Bauchi Paul John Audu at the annual Prayer Rally organised by the State chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) held at the Church of Christ in Nations (COCIN) LCC Yelwan Tudu RCC Bauchi on Saturday.

The Clergyman spoke on the theme ‘Arise oh Lord and have mercy on us’ drawn from stating that “all have failed, hence, the need to desist from any form of ungodly acts because, God is after the faithful ones.”

He also said that because Christians are serving a God of mercy, He listens to their cries whenever they cry to Him and repent from their sins.

The Clergyman expresses assurance that if there is any need to turn to God for mercy upon the land, then it is now, especially at the critical moment that life is unbearable to cope up with.

According to him, most of the problems facing Nigeria and Nigerians, are as a result of the many sins and failure to do the needful as believers in Christ.

Paul Audu further admonished believers to learn to be prayerful in their lives and God will answer them and meet their heart desires according to His riches in glory as promised in the Bible.

He also called on the Christians to continue to pray for the Leaders for peace of Bauchi State and the nation at large even at this trying moment to enable them to succeed in piloting their activities.
