Anglican Communion holds diocesan prayer convention, as Bishop Ibeabuchi calls for total repentance
Nigerians have been enjoined to gladly take up the journey of the year 2022 with Christ to glory despite trials and tribulations, as God will never abandon His chosen one.
In his opening charge during the year 2022 Diocesan Prayer Convention with the theme: “If it had not been the Lord”, drawn from the Bible book of Psalm chapter 124 at St. Stephen’s cathedral school field, Umuahia, Abia State, The Rt Rev’d Geoffrey Obijuru Ibeabuchi, Anglican Bishop of Umuahia diocese, who x-rayed the challenges faced by the biblical Israelites, pointed out that despite their difficult journeys to the promised land, their dispositions conveyed joyful contemplations, thankfulness, and hopefulness as a result of divine guidance and companionship.
He moreover maintained that for one to witness the divine grace of God, there should be total repentance as it is the only key to enjoy God’s providence.
In his homily captioned “Safety is of the Lord”, with text from Proverbs chapter 21 verses 30 to 31, Evang. Eze Onyenso from St. Timothy Anglican Communion, Umuokpoji, Aba diocese reminded the congregation that a life without battle is useless as life is a battle field from the beginning of every man’s life to the end.
He pointed out that there are series of challenges/wars currently ongoing in the world ranging from battles of life, destiny, foundation and sleep, even as he maintained that God is capable of saving genuine Christians from national troubles.
