The Imo state branch of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has announced that arrangements to host a prayer rally in the state have been finalized.
Eches Divine Eches, CAN’s State Chairman, revealed this to reporters in Owerri yesterday, adding that the prayer summit for the insecurity issue in Nigeria will take place on July 2, 2021.
According to Mr. Divine, the prayer summit, which will be attended by church leaders throughout the country, would focus on ways to achieve absolute peace in the state.
“It is put together to create peace, harmony, and progress,” he said. We are all concerned about the state of Imo’s peace. Churches will shutter, hotels will close, companies will close, and people will continue to suffer, and nothing will function in Imo State if there is no peace.
“This prayer is not only for Imo State; it is a general meeting from our national secretariat, and the Christain Association of Nigeria, CAN, Imo State is the one anchoring it,” he said. So we need prayers to increase the intensity of peace so that we may all be at peace.
“This prayer is unique because it is a communal one, with everyone coming out to join hands in prayer for peace to be restored and for Imo state to prosper and develop.”
“This prayer is not only for Imo State; it is a national secretariat gathering, and the Christain Association of Nigeria, CAN, Imo State is anchoring it,” he added. Prayers are needed to raise the intensity of peace so that we can all live in harmony.
“This prayer is unusual because it is a community one, with everyone coming out to join hands in prayer for the restoration of peace and the prosperity and development of Imo state.”
“We’re bringing together all churches, adolescents, and community leaders so that we can all work together to restore peace. We’ve extended our invitation to rural churches, so it’ll be an all-inclusive prayer summit,” CAN said.
The Executive Secretary of the Christian Privy Commission, Reverend Yakubu Pam, Prelate of the Methodist Church of Nigeria, S. K Uche, Primate of the Anglican Communion, Henry Chukwuma Ndukuba, and others are scheduled to attend.
