President, Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Rev. Samson Ayokunle, says in spite of her challenges, Nigeria will remain indivisible and wax stronger.

In a message of hope issued on Thursday to Christians and Nigerians preparatory to the country’s 61st anniversary, Ayokunle also declared that “Nigeria shall experience Showers of Blessings.’’

He said his prophesy was backed by the Book of Ezekiel 34:25-30, where Ezekiel prophesied to a people in captivity of the Babylonians that there shall be showers of blessings.

He said: “On behalf of myself and the Christian Association of Nigeria, I congratulate all Nigerians on this occasion of the 61st Independence Anniversary of Nigeria from colonial rule of the British.

“With full assurance of faith in the Lord and the power of the Holy Spirit, at this difficult time, I prophesy that there shall be showers of blessings in the name of Jesus.”.

Ayokunle said the situation, humanly speaking, appeared bleak, but knowing that God is not man and with Him, all things are possible, this is the right time to believe that there shall be showers of blessings because some people are praying for this country.

“There shall be showers of blessings because God shall judge the evil doers in the nation.

“There shall be showers of blessings because God rules in the affairs of humans. There shall be showers of blessings because the thoughts of God towards us are good and not evil.’’

Ayokunle, also Co-Chairman, Nigeria Inter-Religious Council, said the showers of blessings shall usher in peace to Nigeria and all agitations would cease.

The CAN president said the Lord would cause wild beasts and criminals operating with various names such as Boko Haram, bandits, kidnappers, murderous herdsmen, unknown gunmen to cease from Nigeria.

“Violence shall become a thing of the past in Nigeria and all Nigerians shall dwell in safety in the name of Jesus.

“Our economy shall flourish and there shall be prosperity in the nation and Nigerians who had run abroad will return home because Nigeria will be a desired nation by everybody in the name of Jesus,’’ he stressed.

He added that God shall turn Nigeria’s dry land into swamps of food where Nigerians would have plenty to eat and the days of scarcity would be no more in the name of Jesus.

He prayed that at the forthcoming 2023 general elections, no wicked leader shall be voted into power no matter how wealthy and powerful he or she might be in the name of Jesus Christ.

The CAN president commended the military for the current upper hand they were having over insurgents and criminals tagged bandits and wicked herdsmen murdering and sacking communities.

“We encourage law enforcement agents not to give these criminals any breathing space until the battle is won and Nigeria is safe again as before,’’ he stressed. (NAN)
