Oil Of Joy( Special Intercession for Nigeria).

Topic: Oil Of Joy( Special Intercession for Nigeria).

Text: Isaiah 61 vs 3.

Confessions: Lord, arise and have mercy upon Nigeria; for the time to favour her, the set time is now in Jesus' name.

One of the profound principles of God is elimination by substitution. All through the Bible, we can see this principle coming alive and doing exploits in the life of individuals and nations. In Isaiah 61 vs 3; the Almighty God says He will give beauty to substitute for ashes; oil of joy for mourning and garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness! This means that, situation of ashes around you is only ashes in your thinking and feeling- God is able to offer you beauty in place of such a sordid situation. And He will do it today in Jesus' name. God will take away mourning from our land( for we are mourning indeed) and bring oil of joy for our succor in Jesus' name.

Is Nigeria mourning really? Yes, tears are flowing freely all over the land because of insecurity, poverty, deprivation and despair. We are in a war situation. Lives are being wasted everyday. Souls are perishing. Hell is becoming enlarged because of exodus of sinners filling up its cruel space. Frightening things are being said about Nigeria; even Christians are getting discouraged daily,  about the spate of terrorism, in spite of our prayers. Many are wondering if God is listening to our cries at all. Brethren, God is answering those prayers,  because the situation could have been worse than this, but for a divine hand waving away danger and destruction from the nation.

We are where we are today, because of iniquity. The wages of sins is death( Romans 6:23). Righteousness, the Bible says, exalts a nation but sin is a reproach to any people( Proverbs 14 vs 34). God has been patient with us- waiting for our repentance and renewal. But are we repentant? This is why we need to cry unto the Lord this moment, and ask for a spirit of repentance and mercy. As children of God, we have a responsibility to intercede for our nation. We need not lament or bemoan the existing situation: what we need is prayers and more prayers. And God will answer our prayers in Jesus' name.

Today, we shall bombard heavens with our prayers. Nigeria is down but not out; her head is bloody but unbowed; she is tied to a stake and bayed about by many enemies but her soul is still alive. We can salvage the situation of our land, and the best way to do this is to pray. We all know 2 Chronicles 7 : 14: "If my people, which  are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land". God will heal our land in Jesus' name. Pls, find time to pray for Nigeria. Your intercession will speak glory into your life in Jesus' name. Amen. Shalom.


Pls, sing this song:

Through the love of God our Savior,
All will be well;
Free and changeless is His favor;
All, all is well.
Precious is the blood that healed us;
Perfect is the grace that sealed us;
Strong the hand stretched out to shield us;
All must be well.

Though we pass through tribulation,
All will be well;
Ours is such a full salvation;
All, all is well.
Happy still in God confiding,
Fruitful, if in Christ abiding,
Holy through the Spirit’s guiding,
All must be well.

We expect a bright tomorrow;
All will be well;
Faith can sing through days of sorrow,
All, all is well.
On our Father’s love relying,
Jesus every need supplying,
Or in living, or in dying,
All must be well.
