The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has declared Friday, 4 November 2022 as a national day of prayer ahead of the 2023 general elections.
This is contained in a statement signed by Archbishop John Daniel, the chairman of the local organising committee, CAN’s national prayer day.
CAN said the prayers were to seek divine intervention “in preventing violence, manipulation, intimidation of voters and other electoral crimes in the forthcoming elections.”
“We consider this imperative in view of the fact that our nation is passing through very challenging times at the moment despite its abundant natural, human, and material resources,” it added.
Archbishop Daniel, therefore, urged Nigerians to be a part of the event, which, he said, would “usher the country into a new era of peace, unity, safety and all-round prosperity.”
“May God use the programme to address the spiritual dimensions of the challenges plaguing the nation and frustrate every evil plan against the unity of the people,” he prayed.
In Abuja, the prayers will hold at the National Christian Centre by 10:00 a.m.
