By Providence Emmanuel
ASABA—The Bishop of Asaba Diocese, Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion), Rev. Justus Mogekwu, has called on Christians to pray ceaselessly for the peace and unity of Nigeria.
He said this at the 3rd session of the 14th Synod Anglican Communion, Asaba Diocese held in Delta with the theme: “The Lord of Hosts, Mighty in Battle.”
Mogekwu stated: “prayer is the key to surmount all challenges facing the country. God who answers prayers will never forsake the country if only the people will turn away from evil and do His will at all time. The Federal Government should, as a matter of urgency take decisive steps to put a stop to the spate of killings in the country and prosecute those found culpable.
Commending the governor of the state, he urged politicians not to heat up the polity, especially now that 2019 general elections is fast approaching, saying that all hands should be on deck to move the country forward so that she can take her pride of place once again in the comity of nations.
He called on Christians to uphold their faith and propagate the gospel of Christ, urging government to use federal establishments and institutions, especially the Armed Forces and the Police for national interest and wellbeing of all Nigerians and not for personal, sectional or political interests.
