I received hundreds of prayers and salutations from my Christian friends around the world this Easter. One in particular stood out from the normal of the frequent injection of IJN or “in Jesus name”.
This one was new and fresh sent from a fan in Nigeria. For one thing I can never understand the practice of sending unsolicited prayers to someone you don’t know.
The one thing we have been taught and led to believe by religion is that prayer is a powerful currency, so why give such powerful resource away without care.
Yet you were hard pressed to give me 500 Naira to buy a meal of pounded yam in Obalende, Lagos when I was hungry.
This is the prayer “Every Egyptian you saw in the past months you will see no more for God shall fight for you and you shall hold your peace”
