He said scientific way of healing is not always enough, spiritual healing is better, he said.
Speaking, when he attended the Sunday service of Dunamis International Gospel Centre, Garki, Abuja, the President expressed hope that with the prayers and support of the Church, Nigeria would overcome its present challenges, even as he thanked Christians for their prayers for the nation under his watch.
“I thank the pastor and his wife for their spiritual work for this nation. Scientific way of healing is not always enough; we need spiritual healing too. Even after any major operation, you are told to come for periodic check-up, may be every three months because medical or scientific help is not always complete. Spiritual help is total. So, I thank the Pastor and the Church on behalf of the country”, he said.
Maintaining that the country has its own fair share of the negative events around the world to contend with, Jonathan said the country’s challenges would have been worse without the prayers and spiritual support of pastors and Christians.
“If you watch the television, both local and foreign, we always have negative news as breaking news. We have our fair share of those negative news but your prayers have been helping. If not for your prayers, it would have been worse. We will get over our challenges,” he noted.
Commending the senior pastor, Dr Paul Enenche for his consistent support and prayers for his administration and the country as a whole, the president urged the Dunamis family and Christians generally to keep praying for the nation.
He told the congregation to serve God whenever they are privileged to have wealth or hold positions of authority in the land.
Jonathan said he had resolved that every last Sunday of the month, he would go round different churches in Abuja to fraternise with other Christians and appreciate them for their prayers, aside from his usual worship centre, the Aso Villa Chapel.
On his part, Pastor Enenche prayed for the president to be able to take ‘rugged’ decisions at the right time which are in the fear of God and rule of law, irrespective of whose ox is gored.
Praying for divine protection and guidance for the president and his cabinet, Enenche also prayed that the 2015 election should not end in war or any form of violence, adding that anyone who is not of God should not smell the highest position in the land.
