Nigerian  Christians need pray more if… Bishop Odedeji

By Adeola Ogunlade


THE Lord Bishop Diocese of Lagos West of the Anglican Communion, RT. Reverend Dr. James Olushola Odedeji, has urged the Nigerian Christians to pray more for those in position of authority and a united Nigeria.

The clergy made this call at the centenary celebration of the ST. John’s Anglican Church Iju Ishaga, an Archdeaconry under the Diocese of Lagos West.

In his words: “ I believe so much that if Christian’s can pray Nigeria will not be what we have today.

“Faith is not necessarily what you confess but what you put into action and the Bible tells us that faith without work is dead.

“So Christians should be Christians not only by mouth but by our righteous living, by our fruit bearing attitudes,by our being accommodating believing that others should also survive and this is what the bible tells us as Christians.

“So when those things are put in place Nigeria will be good. I believe in Nigeria, I know the worse cannot happen, I know the Lord will rescue this nation and I can tell you that very soon the kingdom of God will reign supreme in this nation.

“Let us continue to pray for the government and those in position of authority they need our prayers. They are as human as anybody, we know we have so many problems but God is abundantly able to deliver those who trust in him.

Bishop Odedeji also charged stakeholders and members of the Archdeaconry with eleven churches under it, to harness the huge potentials for better projection of the Anglican  communion within their vicinity.

“Forward ever backward never,they have potentials they have to spread the good news,they must ensure that the news of the Gospel continues.
