Over 7,000 Anglican Faithfuls To Embark On 5-day Prayer For Nigeria
Over 7,000 Anglican faithful from Nigeria and abroad will convene at the Ecumenical Centre, Abuja for the seventh Divine Commonwealth Conference holding between November 13 and 17, 2017.
In a statement, the Primate of the Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion), Nicholas Okoh, said the programme was organised to seek God’s face in prayer.
Stating that the theme for this year’s conference is, “I have the man Jesus,” the clergyman explained that the conference would help in strengthening the faith of the people, especially as the economy bites harder.
“I felt under God’s guidance that we should gather for the purpose of spirituality — to edify the people, prayer and fellowship,” the Primate said.
Over 7,000 Anglican faithfuls from across Nigeria and in the diaspora , are set for an encounter with God at the seventh Divine Commonwealth Conference (DIVCCON ) holding at the Ecumenical Centre Abuja from 13 to 17 November 2017.
In an interview with newsmen in Abuja, the Primate of Church of Nigeria ( Anglican Communion) Nicholas Okoh, said the theme for this year conference: ” I Have The Man Jesus” is to provide opportunity for the people of God to gather for fellowship, invest in Jesus and “to seek the face of God who is the beginning and finisher of our faith”.
He explained the conference would concentrate in strengthening the faith of the people that “even though the economy may be biting hard, you may not have anyone to help you but you have someone and that someone is God”.
Primate Okoh said, the inspiration for DIVCCON came as a result of meditation. ” We discovered that most of the meetings that we have, though avenues for prayers, worship and all sorts of things, they are essentially administrative meetings.
“So, I felt, under God guidance that we should just gather for the purpose of spirituality, do nothing else . Speak to edify people, ministrations, prayers, fellowship and let people who are not necessary Anglicans come to join in worshiping and praising the Almighty God”.
