He gave this assurance at the third service of Dunamis International Gospel Church, Area one, Abuja.

Jonathan thanked Christians for their prayers for the country, stressing that Nigeria’s situation could have been worse without their prayers and those of other religions.

According to him, almost every part of the world are going through trouble time and Nigeria too is having its own share of the negative events.

He said: “If you watch television, both local and foreign, we always have negative news as breaking news. The whole world is almost in trouble and as a nation, we are bound to have our own fair share. With your prayers, surely we will overcome our challenges.”

While urging the congragation to continue to pray for the nation, he thanked the officiating Pastor, Dr Paul Enenche and his team for their consistent support and prayers for the country.

“It is only spiritual healing that is total. We thank you for what you have been doing.” He added

He said that he will continue to worship outside the State House on every last Sunday if the month till he leaves the Presidential Villa.

On Pastor Enenche’s message, titled ‘Fraudulent Practices’, President Jonathan said he was touched.

Jonathan said: “The happiest people in this world are not the big names.”

Delivering the message, Pastor Enenche took the congregation through Proverbs 22:7, Genesis 14:22 to 23, Job 1:1 to 3, Proverb 14:11 said that no man needs to live fraudulently to succeed.

The Pastor gave three counsel to the congregation in order to avoid fraudulent practices.

They are: “Looking away from what is not your, Labour honestly and diligently, and Looking up to the rewarder of diligent labour.”

“Whatever God has not given to you and you take, it does not add anything to you, but take away something from you. Crookedness today equals affliction tomorrow,” he stated.

He prayed to God to grant the President the courage needed in taking decisive steps that will transform the country and to uphold the rule of law.
