Auchi, Edo State

One thing I have asked of the Lord and that I will seek. That I may dwell in the house of the Lord [in His presence] all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty (the delightful loveliness and majestic grandeur] of the Lord and to meditate in His temple.” Psalm 27:4-5, Amplified Bible

 “I can’t imagine this beautiful edifice in Southern Nigeria”, said one of the co-travelers as we approached the Auchi – Ekpesa road. Momoh adjusted his jalabiya and said proudly “This is Arafat Mosque. It is built by the Muslim community of the town as a hallmark for Islamic worship. As you can see, it has got enough space both within and outside for worshipers to be comfortable while here for prayers. The flat land on the left axis is where the Eid prayers hold.” He added.

At the official commissioning of the Arafat Central Mosque two years ago, the Otaru of Auchi eulogised the holy sanctuary as being the opening chapter of the spiritual odyssey that brings about tranquility, progress, prosperity and help from Allah. The city and some of the adjoining communities have preserved Islam for many years with generations of adherents raised. Interestingly, Auchi hosts the single largest congregation of believers in Edo North. There is more to the odyssey emerging from this strategic geographical space. God is definitely up to something.

Please pray:

  • Pray for the emergence of movements of obedient disciples and witnesses to the saving and transformative power of Calvary from Auchi to the rest of its surrounding communities and the entire South-south region of Nigeria.
  • Pray that Muslims in Auchi and its environs will experience the peace found in Christ Jesus.
  • Ask that influential Muslim religious leaders in the town will have irresistible encounter with the Lord.
