Awka-Anambra State Chapter of the ‘Christian Civil Servants Pray Nigeria’ has been inaugurated at Awka.

The one day prayer and inauguration programme, which was held at the Jerome Udoji State Secretariat Complex, Awka on Aug. 6, attracted Federal and State Government workers.

The prayer meeting with theme: Preserving The Destiny of The Nation”, was organised to offer prayers for peace of the nation and prosperity of civil servants.

National Coordinator, Christian Civil Servant Pray Nigeria, Mr Israel Adeyanju, an evangelist noted that Anambra was the 24th state in the federation to be inaugurated.

He described the prayer convention as important for intervention of God in affairs of the nation, especially now that Nigeria was faced with economic and security challenges.

Adeyanju reminded the workers that the heart of king’s remain in the hands of the Lord, and that, if called upon, God could turn things around to good of all.

Anambra coordinator and Director in the office of the Head of Service, Mr Adebayo Ojeyinka emphasised that the restoration of the lost status of civil servants was tantamount to preservation of the destiny of the nation.

He called on public servants to make maximum use of the opportunity to pray that God Almighty would bestow on leaders, the wisdom to lead the nation aright.

Mr Ojeyinka enjoined all workers in Anambra to make it a point of duty to always attend the prayers session at scheduled dates.

Anambra State Head of Service (HOS), Barr Harry Udu in an Interview noted that prayers remain the most veritable tool in surmounting problems facing the country.

Udu noted that the body was non-denominational Christian society devoted to prayers for solution to economic and security challenges of the nation.

The HOS, then, called on everyone to join in lifting the collective problems up to God, believing that God remained the unseen hand controlling the affairs of all.
