Members of the Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion) in Anambra State yesterday held a prayer session at the Alex Ekwueme Square, Awka, to seek God’s intervention in solving the myriad of problems bedeviling the country.

The prayer session, with the theme, ‘Total Restoration’, had about 20,000 Anglican faithful in attendance.

In a sermon preached by the Bishop of Ogbaru Diocese at the prayer session, Most Rev Samuel Ezeofor, he stressed the need for prayers for peace and unity of the state and country, especially at this trying time the country is in.

He observed that things were not normal in the country, saying that Nigerians should hence analyse the situation properly and go ahead to solve them.

In his words, “There is reason for the present devastation in the land and that is why we must first investigate and analyse the situation before solving the problems.

“As Christians, we must watch and pray and seek God’s intervention in the problems of the world.”

The cleric further listed the problems facing the country to include economic meltdown, insecurity, hunger, unemployment, kidnapping, corruption, injustice, diseases, untimely death, ungodliness, among others and described them as weapons the devil use to torment the world.

Earlier in his address, the Anglican Bishop of Awka, Dr. Alex Ibezim, said the people should seek the face of God in every challenge they faced in the country.

He called on the State Governor, Chief Willie Obiano, to ignore any form of entreaties from any quarter to marginalise any religious denomination in the state.

Addressing the congregation, Governor Obiano announced a donation of two 32-seater buses to the Boy’s Brigade and Girl’s Brigade to assist in their various activities.

He commended the church for praying to God to touch the hearts of the people for them to live in peace and harmony.

The ceremony was well attended by Bishops which include Most Rev Alex Ibezim of Awka; Most Rev. Owen Nwokolo of Diocese on the Niger, Onitsha; Most Rev. Samuel Ezeofor of Ogbaru; Most Godwin Okpala of Nnewi; Most Rev Henry Okeke of Mbamili and Most Rev Raphael Okafor of Ihiala.
