The next day, 9th July 2013, Ramadan fast for our Moslem brothers starting a season of intense spiritual traffic and negotiation for the destiny of our nation and the nations of the world.

THE PRAYER CALL: Those who love the Lord and our nation should organise themselves to pray in the night season between 12mn and 6am from 8th July to 7th August 2013.
The most critical part of the prayer time will be on the four days at the beginning of the period, the four days in the middle and the last four days of the period. We ask for volunteers from praying groups who can get together in a vigil on those strategic days. The outlook will be as follows:
3rd to 7th August.
The new moon will occur on 8th July. The 1st Quarter will occur on 15th July, The full moon on 22nd July and the last Quarter on the 29th July. 8th or 9th July will be a good day to hold the first vigil and other vigils will follow on the mentioned days.
MOBILIZING THE CHURCH FOR THE GREAT COMMISSION
$1· Christian assemblies must embark on intentional and consistent prayers for the North of Nigeria and North Africa for the gospel to breakthrough and for every power and work of Satan resisting the gospel of Jesus Christ to be destroyed. Matt. 16: 18; 1 John 3: 8.
In the past few years, Nigeria has witnessed an upsurge in Islamic fundamentalism. From the interviews that I conducted in the North, what we are witnessing is not an accident but the culmination of carefully laid out plans to Islamize Nigeria. I was comforted and encouraged while meeting with a respected elder in Four Square Gospel Church yesterday and he informed me of a prophecy in the Scripture Union, years ago, that Nigeria will never be Islamized while the church is on earth. After the rapture, they can do whatever they want.

"We have heard how the LORD dried up the water of the Red Sea for you when you came out of Egypt, and what you did to Sihon and Og, the two kings of the Amorites east of the Jordan, whom you completely destroyed. When we heard of it, our hearts melted in fear and everyone's courage failed because of you, for the LORD your God is God in heaven above and on the earth below."—Joshua 2:10–11
