Nigerian women don’t need to pray for these 10 things

There are things Nigerian women don’t need to pray for. Many times when I see the long prayer lists of some Nigerian women, I feel pity for them. These women love to pray endless prayers just to keep themselves busy.

The annoying part is that some of the things they pray for and disturb others to pray for too don’t require prayers, they demand common sense and application of wisdom. But no! Nigerian women love to pray. So they pray for cheating men, pray to be treated right, pray when they are being beaten and even pray when someone sexually molests their child.

But Naija women don’t have to pray for these ten things anymore. They need wisdom to drop dead relationships and move on with their lives.

2. Nigerian women don’t need to pray for a man to love them. Love is not by force. If a man doesn’t love you, no amount of prayer and scheming can make him love you. God is not a magician. He can’t force a man to love you because you keep bombarding him with prayers. Move on.

3. Nigerian women don’t need to pray for their men to be faithful. They have to demand faithfulness and accountability from their men the same way their men demand it from them. It takes two to make a marriage work. You can’t keep praying for a man who keeps cheating on you. How do you women do it?

Women should stop hopping from one profession or business to another because others are doing it. You are unique. Find out what brings you joy and fulfillment and do it. Do it even if you are the only one. You will find fulfillment. You don’t have to pray for that too. It’s common sense you should apply.
