Prayer of Thanksgiving for Return of Buhari

Prayers of thanksgiving were Sunday offered in the three major languages for the return of President Muhammadu Buhari to Nigeria from the United Kingdom at the Aso Villa Chapel.
Worshippers, which included the Vice President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo, expressed their joy in songs and dance.
The prayer of thanksgiving in the three Nigeria major languages were offered by the immediate-past Chairman of the Federal Civil Service Commission (FCSC), Deaconess Juan Ayo; Reverend Ambi and Mr King Opuru.
They also sang various songs in Hausa, Igbo and Yoruba languages to give glory to God for healing the President.
Osinbajo, who had acted on behalf of the President for 103 days when Buhari was in the UK on medical ground, was one of prominent persons who sang, danced and praised God for President’s safe return. .
The Aso Villa Chapel’s Administrator, Rev Isaac Ambi, who presided over the service, said the church was happy that the President had a safe return.
He said “We want to rejoice with our father, Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, for the safe return of our President and our father, Muhammadu Buhari. And we also want to thank God on how He has used you in piloting the affairs of Nigeria while the president was away,”
A special ministration with the title: “All Things are Working for My Good” was also rendered by the choir to honour the Lord for spearing President Buhari’s life.
In his sermon entitled: “What is New for a Christian,” the church Administrator, Rev Ambi, urged everyone who has accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour to continue to live according to the dictate of Christ.
He said “A Christian life is a matter of relationship; knowing the rules and the regulation. So what is your relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ?
“We are supposed to have a kind of relationship that draws our strength from Jesus Christ,” he said.
He said that the new things a Christian has include a new position, a new possession, a new product and new focus.
“As soon as we receive Christ, we will experience the great exchange according to 2 Corinthians 32. So you have a new position because Jesus has taken the centre stage in your life and that is why a Christian must not engage in shady deals. 2 Corinthians 5:17 says if any man is in Christ, he is a new creature,” he said.
