“Don’t be tired of praying for Nigeria” – Emmanuela Mike-Bamiloye encourages Nigerians as economic hardship bites harder

Emmanuella Mike-Bamiloye, wife of Damilola Mike-Bamiloye has shared her experience during a prayer session led by their pastor while focusing on Nigeria’s future.

Amidst the fervent prayers, Emmanuella overheard a conversation between two elderly men questioning the efficacy of ongoing prayers without corresponding actions.

Citing the success story of Dubai and its thriving economy, the men urged a shift towards proactive measures alongside spiritual appeals for national advancement.

Emmanuella acknowledged the prevailing concerns about Nigeria’s economic challenges, including the rising cost of living, financial constraints, and overall hardships faced by many citizens.

Despite the daunting economic climate, she passionately advocated for continued prayer and faith in God’s provision, drawing on the biblical call to pray for the nation’s well-being.

In her words:

Something interesting happened in church. Our pastor was leading us to pray for Nigeria and while the prayer was going on, I heard two elderly men behind me saying “all the prayer we have been praying is enough, it is time to act. What prayer did Dubai pray and their economy is thriving?”

I’m sure this is the stance of many people but please don’t be tired of lifting up our nation in prayer. The Bible enjoins us to pray for our Jerusalem (Psalm 122:6)

“I don’t know where this economy is headed”, “the prices of things are increasing on a daily basis”, “there is no money anywhere”, “Things are hard in this country”

These and many more are the comments I hear on a daily basis. No doubt, things haven’t been this bad in Nigerian history but as a child of God, trust Him to help you live above the economy. 

It was the same land plagued with famine that Isaac sowed and reaped a hundredfold (Gen 26:12).

If that’s not the hand of God I don’t know what else is. Though things may be tough, the mighty hand of God is more than able to carry you through.

Have a fruitful week ahead.
