The security and developmental challenges facing Nigeria continues to multiply by the day. This is made worse by the fact that our present crop of leadership appears to be increasingly at a loss on the way forward. By their action and body language, individuals at the highest echelons of power who are responsible for entrenching sustainable security in the country have continued to revel in blame game thereby exhibiting a disposition of being totally blank on how to stem the overwhelming forces of insecurity in Nigeria such as Fulani Herdsmen insurgency, kidnapping, abuse of rule of law, poverty, armed banditry, etc. It is against this backdrop that this work seeks to examine the place of Pentecostalism as a force for promoting national security and development in Nigeria. The work employed survey research method. It adopted the transformative and experiential theories of religion as its theoretical framework. The paper concludes by calling for mobilization of legislative, educational, demographic and prayer platforms as tools for harnessing the Pentecostal core values which it submits are relevant for promoting national security and development in Nigeria.
