The First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan, on Friday in Seoul organised a special prayer session for peace, security and progress of Nigeria.
The prayer was held as part of the Annual Church growth Conference organised by the Yoido Full Gospel Church in Seoul.
Speaking to newsmen shortly after the prayer session, the First Lady said that it was her earnest desire to ensure that there was peace in Nigeria so that development could be achieved.
“We prayed for the security of the country. We prayed for the citizens and the government. We also prayed for peace and progress for our land.
“God can solve any problem that you ask Him in prayer. We believe that there’s nothing God cannot do and I believe He has heard our cry for today because He said when you call upon Him, He will not leave you alone.
”We’ve called upon God for Nigeria and I believe everything will be well with the land. There’ll be no militancy, Boko Haram or random killings anymore, everything will stop.
”God will touch their hearts so that they will know that it is evil to take lives because it is only when there is peace that we can move forward and have meaningful development.”
Pastor Andrew Omale, a pastor at the Aso Villa chapel, who also attended the prayer sessions, told newsmen that prayer was important at all time.
”Even nations that were on the brink of collapse got revived with prayer. With the numerical strength we have, we can pray for economic revival.
”What they’ve done here is mind blowing, from instability to a strong economy and this can be traced to Yoido’s prayer for South Korea. Prayer can turn things around.”
