Wives of local government chairmen in Delta state on Wednesday, June 13, 2018 held a prayer session in Aniocha North local Government Area of the state.
The prayer session held at the Institute of Policy & Strategic Study Onicha-Ugbo was hosted by the first Lady of Aniocha North local government area, Mrs Adaobi Oseme.
The session which was conducted by Rev. Fr. Innocent Chikemegwai in his exaltation, admonished women to always pray more for their husband rather than chasing contracts, saying that a woman should be a role model starting from her home to the larger society.
Fr. Innocent who reminded the women that they have power to change every situation in the society, urged them to allow God live in their homes so that they can go far in life.
The Priest who took dwelt on the book of Genesis 3:9, described women as a Vessel that carry a deep heart to bear and endure all situations in a view to build character for self.
“As in your position, see what you can do to people. Tell your husband to touch lives, build character that you will be remembered. Be coordinated so that you can coordinate society as well. Ask your husband at a time how he managed allocations accrue to the council.
“Take time to visit communities, no how they are fearing especially those who cannot come closer to you. Above all, let your kneel be on the ground and pray vehemently to your husband if you want he to succeed. If you want to become relevant in the society you must touch lives. Rev. Fr. Innocent admonished.
Earlier at a courtesy visit, the Chairman, Aniocha North Local Government Area, Hon. Chuks Oseme thanked the Spouses of the Chairmen for choosing the council for the prayer meeting, urging them to keep praying for council chairmen in the state especially in a time like this.
While he noted that what men need at this time is prayer, Oseme pledge that on their part (council chairmen) would continue to support and encourage council’s first ladies on any activities capable to better the lives of their people.
Highlight of the prayer session were intercessions for the State, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, the 25 Council Chairmen in the state and the children.
