"Come, and let us return unto the LORD: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up. After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight. Hosea 6:1-2"

With the endorsement of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), the National Christian Elders Forum (NCEF) in collaboration with intercessory groups in the Body of Christ calls for 21 days of national REPENTANCE prayer and fasting for the Church and Country.

The period, beginning from Monday, April 23 to Sunday, May 13, 2018, has been slated for a period for intercession to salvage the nation and the Church in it from the unchecked daily orgy of violence resulting in the loss of innocent lives and property in different parts of the country.

We implore you to join in the fast as we bring our dear Nation before the Lord. The prayer and fasting is interdenominational, and all Christians are invited to participate.

Everyone is expected to pray at least one hour daily. 6.00am - 6.00pm (daily fasts) 6.00pm-6.00am (nightly fasts).

May the Lord hear us and heal our land. Amen.
