The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Kaduna state chapter, says it appreciates and will continue to pray for all health workers in the state, the country and in the world at large for their sacrifices to curtail COVID-19.
The state Chairman, Rev. John Hayab, who said this in a statement issued on Friday in Kaduna, noted that the prayers were for the sacrifices the health workers were making for humanity in this difficult time to combat COVID-19.
According to him, many of us have been carried away by our pains and challenges.
“We have forgotten that there are others who have pains and challenges like us but their line of duty requires that they attend to us and do their work as if they do not have any pains.
“Medical workers in Kaduna State, Nigeria and all over the world have no time to sit at home with their families as we are doing. They are attending to victims of this dreaded pandemic which has exposed them to risk.
“As people of faith and patriotic citizens, we in CAN believe that we owe these special group of persons a duty to pray for their safety, their families and their general welbeing.
“It is right and godly to appreciate those who are making sacrifices for you to be alive, happy and be enjoying.
“CAN wishes to salute all our health workers in the hospitals and everywhere that they are rendering services to humanity. We want them to know that we are praying for them and are wishing them well.
“May God protect, secure and reward them with love and kindness for all their unquantifiable sacrifices at this delicate time in human history.
“In appreciation of their sacrifices for us during this painful season, we promise to follow their advice and guidance on how to fight this virus.
“We know that together we will defeat this virus so that we will have our sweet and normal life back .
“This will enable you, our amiable health workers, to reunite with your families freely and have more happy times together.
“May God bless our doctors, nurses, lab scientists and keep all our medical staff safe and healthy,” Hayab said.
