Hadejia, Nigeria

The righteous will flourish like the date palm. They will grow like a cedar in Lebanon.” Psalm 92:12

The date palms are so big and fresh. They taste different from the ones sold in the central part of the country. “Our land, though in the Savannah, is blessed by God. The wetland that stretches into the neighbouring state is simply an oasis in the desert. We grow cotton, millet, sorghum, rice, groundnuts just to mention a few. We also engage in fishing activities. God has His imprint in this land. I think He did so, so that from beholding His handiwork, the people might embrace Him.” Those were the words of an indigenous missionary as we exited Hadejia for our next destination.

A town rich in history, Hadejia previously known as Biram, is considered as one of the seven true Hausa states (Hausa Bakwai). It is believed to have been ruled by one of the descendants of Bayajidda. The latter is revered as the father of the Hausa race. It became a Fulani emirate after its conquest in the 1810 war. Yet, Hadejia resisted British occupation in 1906.

Islam is the prominent religion among the indigenous people in the commercial town.  Many numbering over a million and resident in the town daily pray to be shown the perfect way which the righteous are graciously shown. Will you passionately pray today that their heart-cry be granted by Him who is the Way, the Truth and the Light.

Please Pray:

  • Pray that as resident of Hadejia behold the splendour of nature and the yield of their harvest, their hearts will be drawn to the Master Designer.
  • Pray that the Lord will send into Hadejia, gospel labourers who are divinely equipped to multiply obedient disciples.
  • Ask the Lord to break every resistance to the Truth and that every veil be removed.
