The Archbishop, Province Of The Niger, Most Reverend Alexander Ibezim has challenged christians to understand the mission of satan and conquer it through prayers.
Most Reverend Ibezim stated this at Saint Peter’s Anglican Church Amawbia, Awka South Council Area for Confirmation and Admission into Mother’s Union and Girls’ Guild.
Most Reverend Ibezim who is also the Bishop, Diocese Of Awka said that from time immemorial, Satan has been looking for who to destroy, kill and steal from so as to lead them to hell fire where they will languish and suffer forever.
He maintained that Jesus Christ came to give man abundant life and reconcile him with his maker so as to inherit God’s kingdom.
Most Reverend Ibezim asked the newly confirmed to keep to their faith, live according to the directives of the Holy Spirit as the power they have received will energize them to walk in the righteous paths and urged the mothers not to be weak but pray fervently at all times, handing over all life circumstances to God.
While thanking God for the visit, the Archdeacon, Amawbia Archdeaconry, Venerable Vincent Nkemdilim said they are all enriched with the virtues bestowed upon them by the Archbishop promising that they will continue to propagate the gospel of Christ and preach the undiluted words of God.
Some of the newly admitted into the Mothers’ Union, Mrs Chinweoke Adikuru, Mrs Franca Aronu of Commercial Department of the ABS and Mrs Anna Okechukwu promised to keep the vow made and uphold moral living in their different homes.
The service which was for the eight churches under Amawbia Archdeaconry was attended by the President, Women’s Ministry, Province of the Niger and Diocese of Awka, Mrs Martha Ibezim and other clergymen in Amawbia Archdeaconry.
Confirmation proper, admissions, special prayer sessions and thanksgiving climaxed the visit.
