Economic Recession: CAN declares 3 days fasting, prayers for Nigeria

Bothered by the biting economic recession cycle in the country, the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has de­clared a three-day fast­ing and prayers for the country.

The fasting and prayer is being held between September 21 and 23, 2016.

A statement by Pastor Adebayo Oladeji, Special Assistant on Media to the CAN Pres­ident, Rev. Samson Ola­supo Ayokunle enjoined all Christians to key into the programme to seek the face of God in the recession being experi­enced by the nation.

“As we are getting ready for the 56th Inde­pendence Anniversary, the leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has de­clared September 21-23, 2016 as days of fasting and prayers for the na­tion and His Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari with his team.

“We call on all chris­tians nationwide to seek the face of God for divine intervention as our political leaders are seeking for panacea to the economic recession and the attendant prob­lems.”

The statement stated that the programme is anchored on the Holy Bible pas­sage which says, “If my peo-ple, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14 (KJV).”
