The Archbishop of Kwara Ecclesiastical Province, Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion), Archbishop Israel Amoo has advised Nigerians to take comfort in God at this difficult time.
He also called on leaders at all levels to be faithful, loyal and honest in their service to God and country.
He urged Nigerians to actively participate in the 2023 elections to choose credible leaders to lead the country to greater heights.
The cleric recently spoke at Saint Barnabas Cathedral, Ilorin, Kwara State, when Bishops and clergy in the diocese converged to seek the face of God for Nigeria and the Anglican Communion.
Meanwhile, the President of Kwara State Chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Rt. Rev. Sunday Adewole called on eligible Nigerians to vote according to their conscience in the upcoming elections.
The Bishop, Diocese of Igbomina, Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion), Rt. Rev. Emmanuel Adekola, in his sermon titled: “Let Men Should Pray” from Luke 18:1, enjoined Nigerians to be fervent in prayer, to avoid injustice, to abstain from sin and to return on their way to God.
Adekola noted that God honors the prayers of those who are not corrupt, wicked and selfish.
The Bishop enjoined the faithful Anglicans to intercede effectively for the Church and its leaders, saying prayers should also be held against the sudden death of one of its Archbishops, Bishops, their wives and the laity, as well as leaders at all levels of the church. He also called for prayers for the 2023 general election.
