The wives of local government chairmen in Delta state on Wednesday 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 and 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 for their husbands other 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 lives in their home so that they can go far in life.
The man of God who took his text from Genesis 3:9, described women as vessels that carry a deep heart to bear and endure all situations in a view to building good character for themselves.
“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 faring 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 the courtesy visit, the chairman Aniocha North Local Government Area, Chuks Oseme thanked the chairmen’ wives 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 chairman) would continue to support and encourage council first lady on any activities capable to better the lives of their people.
Highlight of the session were prayers for the state, governor Ifeanyi Okowa, the 25 council chairmen in the state and the children.
