Recession: 5,000 turn prayer warriors in Onitsha
No fewer than 5,000 traders in Onitsha doing business at the popular Mgbuka old motor parts dealers market, Obosi, yesterday turned to prayer warriors to attract God’s favour to cushion the effect of the current economic hardship in Nigeria as they dedicated their newly constructed prayer auditorium to God.
In the traders’ manner of practicing unified Christianity, an interdenominational dedication service presided over by a Catholic Priest, Rev Fr Mike Okagbue, was held with the clergyman assuring Nigerians that God is capable to lift the country out of recession.
Fr Okagbue who charged Nigerians on fervent prayer and righteous life that pleases God as means to deliver the country from the present economic predicament assured that God is ever present in his altar, telling those who are interested in evil practice that the Holy Spirit has been released to cast out evil in the market. According to the catholic cleric whoever that attempted to bring evil to the market would meet his waterloo as the market and prayer auditorium have been dedicated to God and repeatedly called on evil minded people in the market to have a change of heart to avoid the wrath of God descending upon them.
