Jonathan urges Christians to pray for greater peace of Nigeria as lent begins

Nigeria’s President Goodluck Jonathan felicitates with Christians in the
country as they begin the observance of Lent for the year 2012.

As the dominant feature of the 40-day period between Ash Wednesday and
Easter Sunday is constant prayers, penitence, fasting and self-denial,
President Jonathan urges Christians in Nigeria to pray fervently this Lent for
greater peace, security and progress in the country.

    The President also urges the Christian community to reflect deeply during
the period on the virtues and ideals of human existence exemplified by the
ministry of Jesus Christ on earth.  

He calls on Christians to commit themselves to making those virtues,
including brotherly love, tolerance, humility, service to others, honesty,
fairness and equity more manifest in their daily lives.
