Runteldat: Look, Your Savior Comes!

For the last few years, so many things have been going on in the country especially in the last few weeks of election. 
It is saddening what is going on around but i refuse to be discouraged.It has become more than obvious that this is not a fight we can hope to win with arms, intellectualism or even pickets, what then do we do? 
What we do is we look to the only one who can.
 Now more than ever i will cry out to God concerning Nigeria because now more than ever i believe He is working out our salvation. Why else would we be going through so much pain? This represents the labour before birth and i am convinced we are birthing new and good things in this land and for this country. I have been praying and speaking concerning Nigeria and i ask as many as believe in us to do the same. Refer to the passage below in your declarations and meditations. Let us be the change we seek.
The Message
 Regarding Zion Nigeria, I can't keep my mouth shut, regarding Jerusalem Nigeria, I can't hold my tongue,
Until her righteousness blazes down like the sun
and her salvation flames up like a torch.
Foreign countries will see your righteousness,
and world leaders your glory.
You'll get a brand-new name
straight from the mouth of God.
You'll be a stunning crown in the palm of God's hand,
a jeweled gold cup held high in the hand of your God.
No more will anyone call you Rejected,
and your country will no more be called Ruined.
You'll be called Hephzibah (My Delight),
and your land Beulah (Married),
Because God delights in you
and your land will be like a wedding celebration.
For as a young man marries his virgin bride,
so your builder marries you,
And as a bridegroom is happy in his bride,
so your God is happy with you.
I've posted watchmen on your walls, Jerusalem.
Day and night they keep at it, praying, calling out,
reminding God to remember.
They are to give him no peace until he does what he said,
until he makes Jerusalem Nigeria famous as the City of Praise.

God has taken a solemn oath,
an oath he means to keep:
"Never again will I open your grain-filled barns
to your enemies to loot and eat.
Never again will foreigners drink the wine
that you worked so hard to produce.
No. The farmers who grow the food will eat the food
and praise God for it.
And those who make the wine will drink the wine
in my holy courtyards."

Walk out of the gates. Get going!
Get the road ready for the people.
Build the highway. Get at it!
Clear the debris,
hoist high a flag, a signal to all peoples!
Yes! God has broadcast to all the world:
"Tell daughter Zion Nigeria, 'Look! Your Savior comes,
Ready to do what he said he'd do,
prepared to complete what he promised.'"
Zion Nigeria will be called new names: Holy People, God-Redeemed,
Sought-Out, City-Not-Forsaken.
The destiny of Nigeria is in our hands, We are the country, the country is us.
