I felt patriotic on my nation’s 58th Independence Day celebration. Here is my prayer for the country as she turned another page in history.
Nigeria my country, may you arise and shine. May your divine purpose on earth be established and may you overcome all hindrances to your greatness.
May your strength increase and may you take your deserved place in the comity of nations.
May you be delivered from the chains of corruption and may responsible leaders rise up from every part of you to pilot your affairs.
May terrorism within your borders be consigned to your past and may your people dwell in safety.
May peace and tranquility rain in every of your quarters.
May you grow in leaps and bounds in physical and infrastructural development. May your inhabitants be filled with milk and honey.
May your citizens seek and know you in truth and in spirit. May all your sons and daughters be called blessed.
May all those who are against you be defeated before your eyes. May nations come to you for help and may your store house never run dry.
May your latter glory surpass the former. And may you shine and shine brighter till eternity.
