Prayer and National Security: A Study of Isaiah 58
Uploaded by: Society For Research And Academic Excellence
One of the obligations of a nation is to provide security for its citizens. In Nigeria today, security has been hampered by a number of activities, particularly by that of the Boko Haram sect. The paper presents that well-principled prayer can go a long way in stemming the tide of insecurity in Nigeria. The paper acknowledges that prayers are being said by various religious groups but there is something lacking. Hence, the message of Isaiah 58 maintains that prayers go unanswered because the religious practices of the people are shallow and mixed with compromises. The study employed the biblical analytical method and the findings indicated that this situation can be averted if the right principles of prayer were followed by those who are praying for the peace of the nation.
