‘Pray for 2023’
Delta State Governor, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, yesterday, urged residents to pray for the will of God to be done during the 2023 General Elections.
Okowa made the call at a thanksgiving service at the Government House Chapel, Asaba, for the blessings of God upon him, his family, state and the country in 2021 and for greater divine attention in 2022.
He asked political office holders to concentrate on governance and not be distracted ahead of the elections. He said: “Let us approach the next few months with oneness of love. Towards the end of every administration, there are usually distractions here and there.
‘’This is a year of politics and as politicians we cannot avoid it; pray with us, pray for us and pray about the state. Whatever positions we are contesting for, let us seek the face of God because if you genuinely pray, God will reveal His will for you.
“As a man, I will also try to avoid people pushing me to a direction that God is not pleased with because if God has made a choice and we go in the wrong direction, it will not augur well for the state.”
Chaplain of the Chapel, Ven. Charles Osemenam, in his sermon, urged Christians to put their trust in the Lord as God reveals His secrets to those that fear him.
The cleric urged people in authority to fear God as citizens could only rejoice when the righteous are in authority.
