Chairman, Local Organising Committee, National Prayer Day of the CAN, Archbishop John Praise Daniel, said this in a statement.
According to him, CAN considers this imperative in view of the fact that Nigeria is passing through very challenging times at the moment despite its abundant natural, human and material resources.
“Consequently, all Christian groups or organisations, stakeholders and Christian politicians, especially those vying for offices, are invited to participate in the programme.
“All bloc chairmen, zonal chairmen, states and local chairmen and all church leaders are to mobilise their members nationwide for the programme.
“Participants are to assemble at the National Christian Centre in Abuja for the prayer retreat by 10:00am prompt on Friday this week.
“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 stated.
