Religious leaders in the country have been enjoined to intensify prayers to address security challenges confronting the nation.
General Evangelist Motailatu Church Cherubim and Sera-phin Worldwide, His Eminen-ce, Prof. Joseph Otubu, maintained that intensity of prayer should be applied by the various faiths as a potent weapon to checkmate the Boko Harram insurgency and other security issues wrecking serious havoc in our country.
Speaking at the adoption thanksgiving service of the Motailatu Church in Lagos tagged ‘A celebration of Spiritual Rebirth; The Future of Aladura Churches’, the professor of obstetrics and gynaecology said churches have the responsibility to continue to preach peace and justice for the well being of the nation.
The cleric admonished the Church to show love to one another as Christ had exemplified, and endeavor to make provision for the poor.
He noted that the major problem confronting the nation is poverty, and as such, the church must address it squarely by providing for the less privileged in their midst.
The religious leader enjoined the faithful across the religious divide to love one another as a way of promoting togetherness and rancour-free society.
According to him, we should learn to forgive one another to avoid continuous chaos in our nation, making reference to the late South African leader, Dr. Nelson Mandela as a classic example of how to forgive.
