Call to Prayer: The Anglican Church of Nigeria prepares to elect a new primate
Archbishop Peter Akinola is preparing to retire in 2010 and his successor is to be elected tomorrow by the Church of Nigeria's House of Bishops, which includes the bishops of the Convocation of Anglican in North America (CANA), now also a member of the Anglican Church in North America. We remember our brothers and sisters in the Church of Nigeria who are also praying this night for wisdom and discernment to break through the political intrigue of the election and elect the man God is calling to lead the largest province in the Anglican Communion.
