Stay at home, rebuild family altars, Ndukuba charges members
Primate of the Church of Nigeria, Anglican Communion, Most Rev Henry C. Ndukuba has enjoined members of the church to look up to God, especially in the face of Coronavirus that is spreading fast.
Ndukuba, who noted that the virus was a threat to the entire world, explained that the solution is to return to God in prayer. He said it was time for the church to call on the Lord for mercy and deliverance, and that they should trust Him to do what He promised in His word. He pointed out that religious activities have been minimised to protect members.
The cleric assured the Church of his prayers and urged all not to panic, but to trust God.
He said: “This virus will pass away, but we need to look to the Lord, Who is our refuge and strength. We should not be afraid, because the Lord God Almighty is with us.”
The Primate said there was a spirit behind COVID-19 and as such, it is a name that must bow to the name of Jesus Christ. Assuring the church that none would die, but live to declare the Lord’s goodness, the cleric admonished Christians to seize the opportunity of the stay-at-home order to pray and rebuild family altars, as well as rejuvenate their relationship with God. He admonished believers to stay safe and observe the instructions being given by the government and health authorities.
He also charged Christians not to be discouraged, but have a positive mind, saying God would surely help His people and fight for them.
Due to the lockdown in different parts of the country, Ndukuba advised Christians to use the provisions they have wisely and possibly share with others who might be experiencing hard times.
