Father in Heaven, You always provide for all your creatures So that all may live as you have willed.
You have blessed our country Nigeria with rich human and natural resources to be used to your honour and glory and for the Well being of every Nigerian. We are deeply sorry for the wrong use of these your gifts and blessings through acts of injustice, bribery and corruption, as a result of which many of our people are hungry, sick, ignorant and defenceless.
Father, You alone can heal us and our nation of this sickness. We beg you, touch our lives and the lives of our leaders and people so that we may all realise the evil of bribery and corruption and work hard to eliminate it.
Raise up for us God fearing people and leaders who care for us and who will lead us in the path of peace, prosperity and progress.
We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen!
