In Memorial of the Nigerians who have been carelessly lost.

I have so much in my heart but I cannot write them down.

But I know that my blog has this space of memorial service for those that have fallen in recent times. This is a part of my prayer on Thursday, 28th of June, 2018:


I’m grieving. Grieving. Today, Lord, marks something serious in our lives as Nigerians.
We’re still mourning the Jos killings and Bodija Ibadan killings came upon us, then the Lagos tragedy.
Too much blood shed. Too much. Lord, we’re bleeding. Lord, we’re begging. Lord, we’re saying have your way. Our hearts are heavy. This is not the nation you created, not the Nigeria you spoke into existence. A lot has gone wrong. Terribly wrong.

Lord, in this time let many not lose their faith in you. Let them not mourn and doubt you. Let orphans not think you wicked. Let teenagers not turn to alcoholism and prostitution. Let widows and widowers not despair. Help pastors to comfort and exhort. Help the average man volunteer. Lord teach us to give, teach us to open our homes and purses and hearts to those ones in need.
Lord, teach us to give our prayers, time, money and effort to making Nigeria better. Please, guide us with your eyes. Instruct us in the way to go about taking deliberate and purposive actions in Jesus name I pray.

As always,

Debby

  1. Ms. Debby, this is a beautiful prayer, it is a beautiful read. I pray for God’s will for all of us, all people, all Nations. The Devil and His tens of thousands of Angels are truly roaring Lions walking the Earth seeking to devour the Souls of all. May God’s love and peace be with you and will all of your house. Being I liked your prayer so much I am going to reblog this for you.
