Religious leaders have been enjoined to intensify prayers to address security challenges confronting the nation.
Professor Joseph Otubu, General Evangelist Motailatu Church Cherubium and Seraphin worldwide stated that prayer should be applied as a weapon to checkmate the Boko Harram insurgency and other security issues wreaking havoc on our country.
Speaking at the Adoption Thanksgiving Service of the Motailatu Church in Lagos, tagged, “Celebration of Spiritual Rebirth: The Future of Aladura Churches”, the professor of obstetrics and gynecology said churches have the responsibility to continue to preach peace and justice for the well-being of the nation.
The General Evangelist admonished the church as followers of Jesus Christ to show love to one another as Christ himself exemplified, and also endeavor to make provision for the poor.
He noted that the major problem confronting our nation is poverty, and, as such, the church must address it squarely by providing for the less privileged.
The General Evangelist reminded the brethren at the thanksgiving service of the four responsibilities they owe God: Living a life of continuous praise to God, increase goodness to one another; allowing the goodness of God to lead them to repentance and reforming their lives; and approve themselves faithful to God as to allow his goodness and mercy to always follow them.
