The Spiritual Head of the Celestial Church of Christ Worldwide (CCC), Rev. Kayode Owodunni, has enjoined Nigerians not to relent in their prayers for peace, progress and poliitical stability of the nation.
Owodunni said this while briefing newsmen on the church’s 70th anniversary at its International Headquarters in Ijeshatedo, Lagos.
He said that it was only when Nigerians come together in prayers that its citizens could move the nation forward and achieve the desired change.
He urged Nigerians to pray and work towards the unity of the nation, saying that no nation or economy could grow without prayers.
According to him ‘’what Nigeria need is prayers so as to overcome our challenges as we set our priorities right.
“We must not confess negatively for this country; we must always be optimistic that beyond the tunnel, there will be light; there will be a better tomorrow.
“What we need in our country is prayers, without prayers we as people are helpless, let us put our trust in God.
“It may be tough now, but the end result will lead to joy, breakthroughs and blessings,’’ he said.
He urged Nigerians to eschew the spirit of pride, saying that pride fights against the spirit of God which is humility.
“Pride destroys in church, state and even in the family; Nigerians must imbibe the spirit of humility, humility promotes, it does not destroy,’’ the CCC leader said.
