According to him, “It is very necessary that we pray for ourselves and government. We must come together and call upon God. Our prayers must not stop here but continue on each family’s altar because when there is peace in Ekiti State, there will be peace in our homes”

A sermon was given on the text -2 Chronicles 7:14: if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves, and pray and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.

Highlights of the prayers were supplications to God concerning the spate of kidnappings, banditry and killings and the economic crises in the country.

The Chairman of Ekiti West LGA, Hon. Elder Moses Omojola enjoined the workers to cooperate with the leadership in the service and His Excellency, Mr. Biodun Abayomi Oyebanji, Governor of Ekiti State noting that the development of the state is a joint responsibility of all.
