Bishop Oke Urges to Pray for Nigeria
The Presiding Bishop of the Sword of the Spirits Ministries, Bishop Wale Oke, has called on Christians to get on their knees and start praying for Nigeria, instead of complaining about the situation of the country.
Bishop Oke said this in Maiduguri on Saturday as part of the Glory to Glory Programme of the Ministry, which is initiated for Nigerians, especially Christians to come together to pray for the unity of Nigeria to avert bloodshed.
According to him, “We should pray for Nigeria, instead of complaining about insecurity to lives and property in the country.”
The Bishop, who had gone to 34 states before coming to Borno, from where he leaves for Kwara State to round up his nationwide prayer crusade, said, “This is why we are all here today in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital and epicentre of Boko Haram insurgency.
“Besides the prayers for this country for peace to reign, we are here to distribute these livelihood empowerment machines and tools to IDPs, who are still taking refuge in various camps of the state,” Oke added.
He said Christians are destiny moulders and this they can do on their knees through prayers rather than complaining.
He also called on other well meaning individuals and organisations to come to the aid of the IDPs, whose livelihood have already been destroyed in the nine-year insurgency that claimed many lives and property in the North East.
