CAN to hold prayers over killings


The Lagos State chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, has called for prayers to stop killings by herdsmen.

The Chairman of the chapter, Apostle Alexander Bamgbola, said said this in Lagos on Thursday during a press conference organised by the body to announce its coming 2018 annual Inter-denominational Divine Service, tagged ‘Humility in service.’

He said God’s intervention was needed to bring an end to the attacks.

The cleric noted that the programme would enable Christians to gather to pray against challenges faced by the state.

He said, “Prayers for our land are very paramount. There’s no challenge confronting the state that cannot be surmounted with prayers. Every situation of the country requires prayers and that is why we want to urge all the Christian faithful under the umbrella of CAN to attend the thanksgiving.

“We are not happy with the recent killings by herdsmen; such happenings cannot be confronted with a violent approach. This underscores the need for Christians to pray to God.

“There is no stronghold in the nation that God cannot pull down through prayers. I enjoin all Christians to attend the programme of great worship to God and corporate prayers for a better Lagos and Nigeria at large.

“The previous editions of the programme has done tremendous good to Lagos State, as investors and new businesses have come into our state and there are many more in progress.”
