A video of some Nigerian soldiers seeking the face of God before embarking on a mission has gone viral on Twitter.
In the video, the soldiers were seen standing orderly, while two soldiers lead their counterparts in prayer. The Christian prayer was led first, then the Muslim, with other soldiers responding.
The prayer was largely about committing themselves and their weapons in God’s hands, asking that He fights for them.
This video has left many highly impressed with the unity in their camp. See video and some reactions below:
