A group,”When Women Pray” (WWP), an interdenominational Christian fellowship comprising of women, has called on Nigerians to pray to God to intervene in the country’s current crisis.
The group stated that prayer was the only activity that could secure the needed change in the country.
Speaking at a press conference to announce the group’s forthcoming sixth anniversary, the Resident and Zonal Pastor, WWP, Lagos and Southwest Region, Pastor Temilade Zurike highlighted the importance of prayer in transforming a family, community, city and the country at large.
She noted that a woman plays a major role in the family, and that the success of a country depended on how she effectively managed her home, stating that this was the reason for establishing the fellowship.
“When Women Pray is a fellowship that seeks to raise godly women and aimed at making women come to the awareness of the importance and power of prayer. Basically, we meet regularly to pray for ourselves, families and the nation at large. Our core values are anchored on five cardinal points, which include: Forgive Quickly, No Gossip, Patience, Love and God’s word.”
On the arrangements for the forthcoming anniversary, which will hold in Lagos on April 6, Zurike said the group had chosen to mark this year’s anniversary in a unique way different from how it was held in the past.
“This year, we have chosen to reach out to all women across the country, to carry every woman along so that it will no longer be restricted to a particular segment of the society. The theme of this year’s anniversary is ‘God Cannot Lie’ where the National President of the Fellowship, Pastor Opi Agha and all other anointed women of God will be ministering.”
