Wife of the Vice President, Pastor Dolapo Osinbajo has urged Nigerian women to take good care of their health in other to reap the reward of their answered prayers in good health.
Osinbajo while addressing hundreds of women at the 7th annual conference of the Arise women entitled: ‘Set Time’ recently in Lagos, emphasised the need for women to prioritise prayer and quality health in the era of change with a view to witnessing the goodness of the country in good time.
According to her, “Everything that happened in the physical is as a result of the conclusion in the spiritual; we need to experience the change in the spiritual realm before the physical realm and we can only achieve this with fervent prayers. It is a miracle that we are still alive, it is a miracle that the country is not at war and it is a miracle that we can still worship God in Nigeria. Therefore we women should not rest until when we totally experience the change in every aspect because this is the set time for change”.
“As the Arise Women is breaking forth and emerging good positions in the country all has happened in the spiritual before it manifested in the physical”.
Speaking, the convener, Pastor Siju Iluyomade enjoined the women at the conference to tap into the various opportunities the conference has provided including free medical checkups and skill acquisitions, adding that they should learn to live a life free of medical complications. “This year’s conference addressed the current changes in our society, how they affect women and how women can overcome them”.
