Christian pilgrims in Jordan pray for peace in Nigeria

Nigerian Christians, who are in Jordan for a Christian pilgrimage, have prayed for peace in Nigeria, following the prevailing security and economic challenges confronting the nation.

 

A group of pilgrims, led by a tour guide, Mueen Akvoush and the Executive Chairman, Kogi Christian Pilgrims Commission, Mr Samuel Oluwafemi, prayed when they visited Gedara, where Jesus Christ cast demons out of a madman who was possessed with unclean spirits.

 

The pilgrims prayed to God to cast out the spirits of destruction of lives, banditry, kidnapping and criminal elements that had been responsible for the state of insecurity in parts of the country.

 

Oluwafemi urged the pilgrims to take advantage of the spiritual exercise to improve on their relationship with God and solicit His intervention in their daily activities.

 

He also led the pilgrims to River Jabbok, where Jacob split his family into two groups, in preparation to meeting with his brother, Esau.

 

He called for the spirit of reconciliation with one another among Nigerians so as to promote the national development.

 

“I encourage every pilgrim to pray fervently for God’s intervention on the challenges confronting our families and nation in particular, and keep reconciling for the growth, unity and togetherness of our nation.”

 

Some of the pilgrims expressed gratitude to the Executive Secretary of the Nigerian Christian Pilgrims Commission (NCPC), Revd. Yakubu Pam, for providing Nigerians with the opportunity for seeing, touching and rekindling the memories of places where Jesus Christ performed miracles in Jordan.

 

They pledged to behave well and remain good ambassadors of Nigeria, while adhering with the rules and regulations of the Jordanian Government.
