The new government that took over power barely four weeks ago is already being criticized by Nigerians for the slow pace at which the components of the new regime are being put together. As we reflected over this in prayer, God quickly reminded us of PSALM 127:1

Except the LORD build the house

They labour in vain that build it: Except

the LORD keep the city, the watchmen

waketh but in vain.

As the praying community in the nation, we must never forget the fact that only God can guarantee the much needed change that our people are clamoring for. Prophet Isaiah captured this very well when He said:

For the LORD is our judge, the LORD is our lawgiver, the LORD is our king; it is he who will save us. ISA. 33: 22

God alone is our Nation’s?judge, lawgiver and King. He is the only one that will save Nigeria. This therefore, places a renewed responsibility on us; His chosen co-labourers.

Intercession for us in this season must become a lifestyle and not merely an occasional activity, as the nation cannot wait to experience transformation and God?s intervention.

Our hearts as individuals must begin to flow with God?s heart as a habit of life. This is what God requires in order to fully express His will in our cities and nation through our spirit-led prophetic actions and prayers.

Remember there was a king in Israel when David was used by God to bring down Goliath.? We must arise and build our nation for the Lord is ready to build with us. It?s time for the emergence of the ?David company?. These are men and women that have undergone training in the secret place with God. They must come forward now to bring God?s intervention to the nation.

The onus is on you therefore to locate yourself in this ?David company? and play your part rather than join the critics and complainers who will receive nothing at the end of the day.?????????

Please print out copies of this Prayer Guide for the month of June and circulate widely in the local assemblies and among all intercessory groups. Remember to give room to the leading by the Spirit of God which is what makes the Prayer watches exciting and rewarding.?

I pray that God will depend on you to make every Prayer Watch in the month of JULY very exciting, whether at personal or corporate levels.?

The youth is the life wire of the family and society. They are the hope and leaders of tomorrow. Recent discoveries show that a lot of interest and investments are being directed towards raising and preparing these young ones for leadership and exploits.

However, the alarming rate of vices and juvenile delinquencies indicate that if something is not done quickly, we may be at the verge of harvesting a field of misdirected arrows, social miscreants and a purposeless generation. There is an urgent need to raise godly youths for the survivability of our families, organizations, nation and generation. No amount of investment is too great for the training and establishment of these ?future generals.?
