Prayer Calls By Saraki To End Security Challenge, Will Prayer Really Do Much?

Amanda: With the current security challenges in NIgeria and many lives being lost due to the insecurities faced by the masses in the country, we need more than prayers to tackle such security challenges in the country. Like it is usually said, heaven help those who help themselves.

Many lives have been lost as a result of the insecurities in the country, as such, drastic measures should be taken by the government to eliminate this problem and not just prayers only.  What action do you think the government should take for this problem to be eradicated?

What are your thoughts on this, lets hear from you?.

  • Sure it will, in such a situation, it is really needed, couple with that, hardwork do compliment paryers. Prayers is just like faith it do requires work for it to function effectively.

  • Yes amanda, you know we nigerians love suffering and smiling... We are lazy and nobody wants to lose his or her life so we decide to pray it out... I pray God answer some day

  • Not everything requires prayer, this very one lies in the hands of our government

  • Since the Presidential elections, there has been absolutely no tangible project that I have seen carried out. I think the government should look more into matters. All we have been seeing is the president travelling here and there.

  • As earlier stated heaven help those who helped themselves, God can't come down from heaven to transform Nigeria if we are not ready to change the situation of our dear country. Let's be our brothers keeper, we the masses are to be blame for all the mess happening in our fatherland, we vote them into power for cubes of Maggi and bite our fingers when they buy bullet proof cars send their children abroad for education and medical treatment use flights and here are we perish everyday on bads roads enough is enough....

  • Amanda I personally totally agree with you. In a country as big as Nigeria with it enormous potential and resource should have better security personnel and be able to provide job for its timing youths not asking for prayers against insecurity

  • People should be sincere, insecurity is caused my man and security is made by man. The economy is harsh, government should engage more youth empowerment programs.

    Secondary we need our leaders to wake up and take action for the betterment of this country

    - Bright Moses - 2019-08-14 18:18:07 Quote

  • The truth is that prayer is good oo, but if we refuse to do something drastic about the situation of things in this nation, God forbid, there might be serious problems which we can't hold God responsible.

    - Ogechukwu Ekekwem - 2019-08-14 18:24:26 Quote

  • Prayer will surely help but we need to be practical about this, 

    Drastic security measures should be taken to really curb security issues in Nigeria.

    God helps those who help themselves.

    - Bridget David - 2019-08-14 18:35:32 Quote

  • Honestly it's good to pray but prayer without action is what.......?. We need to act, we've been pray since before I was born.

  • Prayer is the master key of all things in life,I think its going to help in solving the security challenges we have in this country

  • Prayer is very important. But action is what will make prayer answer. If proper action those not accompany prayer it's just a vain.

    - Thomas Philip - 2019-08-14 19:04:56 Quote

  • Well, prayer , they say answerth everything. But, why is it that whenever people of isreaI have problems, they fight,the defend their land? We , Catholics have prayed against bribing and corruption. We have prayed for Nigeria in distress but all to no avail. I think what we need now is revolution and not prayer.

  • You can't Underate the Place and power of Prayer but without Action the Scripture says it is dead work.

  • Prayer in all ramifications and self consciousness is the best

    - Ajayi Victor - 2019-08-14 19:30:38 Quote

  • Yes of cause prayer goes a long way in settling things but we must still put in our own little effort to perfect things.

  • It's good to pray and equally good for us to use our position to ensure Nigeria is safe for everyone.

    - Goodnews Richard - 2019-08-14 20:16:08 Quote

  • Nigeria needs prayers seriously. Only prayers can save this country from the waging collapse. May God hear our prayers and deliver our dear country. Amen!

  • "prayer" is the key....  Yet hard work is required,  the government should empower the thousands of Nigerian youths graduating each year because when they don't have any job,  they try to survive by all means 

    - peter chimezie - 2019-08-14 20:51:49 Quote

  • Prayer. 

    As for me, prayer can only do 20% of it.

  • Prayer will do a lot of good but will only have effect when we have good and fearful leaders

    - Olubunmi Fagbemi - 2019-08-14 22:54:14 Quote

  • Only Prayers cant work but adding it with action to curb those challenges.

    its just as if you are trying to cure an animal disease for instance, Coccidiosis in chicken, u administered the drug for it but kept the environment untidy and wet, the drug wont work and the pathogen will gain resistance to the drug.

    Prayer + Submission to GODs orders = good life

    - YUNUSA ABDULKAREEM - 2019-08-14 23:23:58 Quote

  • That is a good thought but after prayer what happens next... HEAVEN HELPS THOSE WHO HELPS THEMSELVES, the youths in this Nation Nigeria are the evil doers of the Nation for a long time now and it really need to stop. 

    - Lucky Ogheneovo - 2019-08-14 23:25:17 Quote

  • In as much as prayer is important, it's important to understand that God has given us everything we need to succeed. Folding our arms and prayers only won't solve any problem
