Dear Jesus,

You created us as very special people in a very great country, you made us in your image and likeness and gave us the power to choose between good and evil and we deliberately choose evil, we and our forefathers turned aside from your ways into idolatry, lies, blood shedding, tribalism, hypocrisy, eye service, witch-hunting, witchcraft, theft, embezzlement of funds, blackmail, and a lot of evil acts. Many of our spiritual leaders have abandoned returning men back to God to getting rich at all cost, even at the detriment of their followers. We left your holy spirit and embrace strange spirits, and we got into demonic ties. Today the spiritual pollution emanating from our sins is heavily upon us and that is the sole reason nothing goes well no matter how we try. Many of our families are having evil foundations and altars that monitor and destroy our children. Many of us are living pretentious lives, thinking we are deceiving people but are actually deceiving ourselves, for the wages of sin is death.

Father, turn the hearts of our children away from prostitution, homosexuality, lesbianism, armed robbery, occultism, terrorism and every evil act. May our parents live a respectable life that will encourage their children in obeying God’s words, because it is when they live right, the children can emulate them.

We know we have sinned greatly against you. Many of us transfer trust in you to our fellow men and have paid dearly for it. Father, forgive us. Many of us are bowing down to idols that have no life and many turned their money, children, etc, to their idols, forgetting an important fact that anything that takes our attention more than God is our idol and to such people their end is destruction. Father, forgive.

Many of us are truly having one leg in the church and one leg out and it is amazing how quickly we forget that your Bible says nothing unclean will enter your kingdom. Please wash our hearts clean with your blood, for it is your blood alone that washes clean, and it is your name, Jesus alone that saves.

Every hidden and unknown curse passed down into our lives, destroy in your precious name.

We got into covenants inherited from our ancestors. Strange powers are now controlling most of us; dear father, destroy such powers standing between you and us.

Dear father, please dismantle all obstacles put in our way by the evil ones, break down all the evil foundations of our lives and rebuild new ones.

Every evil manipulation and control by the enemy be destroyed by you, oh God.

Everything that has to do with confusion, failure, financial handicap, let them be broken over our lives and country in your precious name. Please grant us good leaders who will keep their promises when they get into office and touch those political leaders and even our spiritual leaders to return their diverted funds and remind them that we came with nothing and will go with nothing. Hebrews 9 27 which says… As it is appointed unto a man once to die and after death, the judgment…should be everyone’s guard. Make our politicians to understand that to lead is not a do-or-die affair and that they should repent from playing dirty politics.

Master, please touch those spiritual leaders and also the political ones that are encouraging their followers to terrorise those of other religious organisations while they act as saints outside. Please, father, remind them that on the day of judgment every hidden thing would be exposed, that means no hiding place for the wicked.

Worldly wisdom has not taken us anywhere, it has only attracted humiliation and pain. Please, father, teach us to desire the wisdom from above that gives life. Make us to appreciate you more.

Father, please purge our lives by fire. Every root of satanic perversion in our lives, families, our leaders, be destroyed in your holy name Jesus. We are held legally by Satan the accuser of the brethren, so dear father let this be destroyed in your name.

Dear God, establish and prosper us as individuals and a nation. Let our will be lost in your will, oh God. Father, please terminate every journey into bondage and unfruitfulness designed for our leaders by Satan, in your precious name, oh God. Give them their original heads so that they can think right in your precious and powerful name. Every satanic arrow against their brain we cast out in your name.

May all of us experience your deliverance, healing and restoration, oh God. As a country nothing shall demote us. Nigeria is indeed wearing a new garment today; oh God, have mercy upon us. As a country, we are shifting away from everything that as to do with irresponsibility, dear God. Enough is enough for Satan. Give us the heart of repentance.

It is my sincere wish, Oh God, on behalf of all Nigerians and others worldwide, I invite you back into our lives. Dear King Jesus, we know that you died for us and that your blood pays for our sins and gives us the very special gift of eternal life. By faith we receive this great gift and we now acknowledge you as our Lord and Savior, Amen. Precious Jesus, we surrender our lives to you so that we will receive the happiness that comes from above. We are dedicating our soul, spirit and body to you. We thank you for delivering us. Thank you, dear father. It is well with us.

Father, in everything that concerns Nigerians and Nigeria as a country, may your name be glorified. You are indeed a faithful God. You are good and awesome. You alone are holy. Every power is in your hands. You are indeed a marvelous God. We are glad because you have overcome the world.

This day Lord, I decree that all my prayers will be answered by fire.

Have mercy upon us, for none of us is worthy, in the precious and most powerful name of Jesus. Amen.
