Delta State Governor, Sen Dr Ifeanyi Okowa, has urged Christians across the country to always remember to pray for the country and those in authority, saying it is God’s express instruction through which our land and country could be healed.

He gave the advice on Sunday in Lagos at the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Powerlink Chapel, Zone 6, Lagos Province 36, Lekki, at the child dedication of former Delta State House of Assembly member, Honourable Ross Uredi.

Quoting from the book of II Chronicles, Chapter 7, verse 14, the governor said that Christians must not fail to take advantage of the commandment of God, if they desire a quick end to the many ills plaguing the nation.

He said: “Let us remember that whenever we pray, the prayer is incomplete if we do not pray for the country and its leaders as we are instructed by God. Nigeria today is going through the wilderness experience.

“This is a time, therefore, for everybody that is a believer to heed the call to pray for our country because God has assured us that when we humble ourselves and seek His face and turn from our wicked ways, He will hear, and forgive our sins and heal our land. Therefore, Christians have a duty to pray for Nigeria and her leaders. And as you pray, God will heal our land and our country.”

Earlier in his message, the Resident Minister, Pastor Akpofure Egra, admonished the congregation to obey God’s words and commandments so as to enjoy the blessings associated with them. He took his text from Deut. 28 verses 1-8.

Among the dignitaries present in the Church include the Minority Leader, Federal House of Representatives, Rt Hon Leo Ogor; Delta State PDP Chairman, Chief Barr Kingsley Esiso; Deputy Speaker, Delta State House of Assembly, Rt Hon Friday Osanebi; Chief of Staff, Government House, Hon Tam Brisibe; Chief Lawrence Oshiegbu; Commissioner for Information, Patrick Ukah; Chief Economic Adviser to Governor, Chief George Orogun; President of the Athletics Federation of Nigeria (AFN) , Chief Solomon Ogba; Principal Secretary to the Governor, Hilary Ibegbulem; wife of the Secretary to State Government, Mrs Kevwe Agas; Mrs Stella Macaulay and Pastor Tos Powell among others top government functionaries.
