Jonathan, Christian Faithful Hold Prayer For Nigeria

Posted: Updated:

The Nigerian President, Goodluck Jonathan and other Christian faithful held a prayer session for Nigeria during a Good Friday service at the Aso Rock chapel in the Presidential Villa to mark the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. At the service anchored by Reverend Obioma Onwuzurumba, President Jonathan, his mother, Eunice, and other worshippers reflected on the life and times of Jesus Christ. Intercessory prayers were said for Nigeria and Nigerians, especially as the country is going through trials following incessant attacks by terrorists. The church prayed that the bomb blasts in the land would come to an end and that the transformation agenda would not be derailed. Among those who experienced the worship were key members of the Goodluck Jonathan administration. The Nine Lessons were shared out as usual and read by key members of the congregation, who also took time out to share exaltations from the scriptures and lessons. The lessons and preaching were interspersed with melodious traditional hymnals as well as praise and worship Reverend Onwuzurumba, describe the death of Jesus as unique and designed to reconcile man with God and called on all Christian faithful to continue to reflect on the things they heard even as they depart from the chapel to enjoy the Easter holiday. The Nigerian capital on Monday experienced a bomb blast suspected to have been carried out by members of the Boko Haram sect. Seventy-five persons lost their lives in the attack that occurred at a motor park in Nyanya, some 16 kilometres from Abuja.
