National Christian Solemn Assembly
Subject: National Christian Solemn Assembly
In response to the growing conviction in the nation that the Nigerian Church should hold a Solemn Assembly nationwide, to repent on behalf of Nigeria and seek God’s divine intervention on account of the multiple crisis afflicting the Church and the nation, His Eminence, the President of CAN, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, has approved that a national Solemn Assembly should take place from Friday 27th May – Sunday 29th May, 2016.
The intercessory community in Nigeria, represented by the Wailing Women International, Intercessors for Nigeria (IFN), and NIGERIA PRAYS, are deeply committed and involved in the call for the Solemn Assembly. Presently, Intercessors for Nigeria (IFN) has embarked on 120-day prayer and fasting for Nigeria.
All the Church leaders are requested to inform and mobilize all the Christian assemblies within their spheres of influence to actively participate in the Solemn Assembly. For as many as are able, the Solemn Assembly weekend should be accompanied with fasting. The details are as follows:
Friday 27th May, 2016 – Prayer Vigil for Repentance and Divine intervention.
Saturday 28th May, 2016 – 5pm – 6pm Prayers in homes, home cell groups or fellowships.
Sunday 29th May, 2016 – All Christian assemblies nationwide should preach on REPENTANCE AND RIGHTEOUSNESS during the worship service. This should be accompanied with at least 15 minutes devoted to prayers for Nigeria and the Body of Christ.
Sunday 29th May, 2016 – 4pm – 6pm Solemn Assembly Worship Service in all Christian Assemblies in Nigeria. FCT CAN shall be required to organize the Solemn Assembly on the National Altar at the National Christian Center, Abuja.
Kindly give the Solemn Assembly your highest urgent attention. May the Lord hear our prayers and heal our land.
