“I sincerely believe there is need for pilgrimage; because prayer is very important.

“If we want God to intervene in our situation, the only instrument is prayer,’’ he said.

The speaker stressed the need for Nigerians to participate in a “A Day with Jesus’’ while in Israel.

He explained that the day was not only refreshing, it also strengthens the faith and belief of Christians in the efficacy of prayer.
