A Methodist Church Cleric in Enugu, Rev Charles Nwaegbo, has urged Christians in the country to use the Holy Week which began on Sunday to pray for an improvement in the nation’s dwindling economy.
Nwaegbo made the call during a sermon to mark the Palm Sunday at the Central Methodist Church at Uwani in Enugu.
He described Palm Sunday, which signifies the triumphant entry of Jesus Christ into Jerusalem as “a journey of an accomplishment and victory by Jesus Christ.”
According to him, the power of the triumphant entry is a journey of an achievement when Jesus went on a journey to save our souls.
Nwaegbo urged the people to march into the Holy Week with accomplishment and victory over the nation’s bad economy.
“This is a period to sow seed of reconciliation and not seed of discord; a period that we should pray and seek God’s help to revive our economy which is in bad shape,’’ he said.
The cleric offered special prayers for the leadership of the country and urged the people to make sacrifices in the interest of the nation.
