INNOCENT OKONKWO

The fervent prayers made for Africa during the recently concluded All Nations’ Congress of Pastors/Ministers Prayer Network-Africa (PMPN-A) has rekindled the hope for spiritual solution to the continent’s sticky situation especially its political and economic challenges.

September is here again! For us, it shall be a month of strange miracles, signs and wonders to remember in the precious name of Jesus! God’s Word is pregnant with wonders. However, until we believe what the Word says about us, God is not committed to perform it (Luke 1:45; see also Genesis 13:14-15; Deuteronomy 28:1-13; Psalms 119:18). 

Rev Oladapo Emmanuel Daramola, a priest of the Methodist Church Nigeria and Communication Strategist to the Prelate of the Church spoke with SANDRA NJOKUOMA on the 2015 general elections and other national issues.
Excerpts…

What are the church’s contributions towards ensuring peace in the coming general elections?
The contributions come in two major areas, one is advocacy, and of course the Bible says that prayer without work is dead. Primarily, we all need that faith to pray for the peace of the nation, the individuals and citizens of the country.

What is the importance of today’s event?
Today is our Annual thanksgiving, and we are really appreciating God for keeping us alive through out January to December.
How does it concern our nation?
Any nation without God is corrupt and for a nation to stand up is also God, therefore the nation must realized that they have a creator and they must give him thanks.
Is there anything to thank God for in this country?

(Luke 9:57-62)

“And it came to pass that as that as they went in the way, a certain man said unto him, Lord, I will follow thee whithsoever thou go, and Jesus said unto him foxes have holes And birds in the air have nests but the son of man has no where to lay  is head, and another said unto him, Lord suffer me first to go and buried my father , Jesus said unto him, let the dead bury their dead, but go thou and preach the kingdom of God, and another also said, Lord I will follow thee, but let me first go bid them farewell which are home at my house.

Welcome to your regular column. So far, in the first week, I explained what success and spiritual empowerment are. Last week, we examined three scriptures that graphically illustrate the place of spiritual empowerment in commanding our unending exploits.
This week, we shall be looking at, Engaging The Demand Of Discipline For Success. God’s plan and purpose for the redeemed is to enjoy unending success. Understand that God’s success plan is not a promise, but a covenant. This implies that until our part is adequately played, God is not committed to deliver. The Bible says: My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips (Psalm 89:34).
