New Seraph prays for Nigeria’s leaders, seek divine wisdom

The New Seraph of the Cherubim and Seraphim (C&S) Church, on Friday dedicated hours to pray for divine wisdom for Nigeria’s leaders to lead the country alright and make reforms that will advance the Church and the nation at large.

The New Seraph made the prayer at its 2024 Annual General Conference (AGC) held at its New Seraph prayer ground Sapade, along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, Ogun state.

Themed, ‘Approaching C&S Centenary Reshaping the Future’, the AGC had in attendance C&S faithful from across the country and in diaspora. It was also a stocktaking gathering to spiritually reposition the nation and the Church for higher glory.

Oluwaseye Yomi-Sholoye, founder and Iya Aladura General, New Seraph, said that it was essential to take stock as a church and as a people with a view to shape the future the centenary of the C&S by 2025.

According to her, prayer for Nigeria’s leaders is a priority and should be made constant. She said that as humans, people in leadership positions need divine direction to stay on track. “The fact that our nation is marching on to higher glory in spite of challenges is because of prayers of faithful like me and you. That prayer we have come to activate today for our leaders to be able to lead with discerning mind.”

Yomi-Sholoye eulogised the vision of St. Moses Orimolade-Tunolase, founder of the Cherubim and Seraphim movement worldwide for his tenacity and trust in God’s work. She described vision as a chart that guides but requires a review to conform to contemporary aspirations.

She said further that the Church would no longer condone fake prophecies from its preachers, discipline and transparency would be its management signpost.

According to her, improved inter and intra people relationships would encourage other denominations to accept the C&S and its members in all facets of social life. She said further that undiluted teachings of the word of God would be encouraged to help people grow in spiritual encounter with God and win souls to sustain the vision of the fathers of faith.

Speaking at the event, the chairman of the AGC planning committee, Foluke-Kolade, said that the youth would undergo a spiritual and social rebirth to enable them to fit into the church’s plan.

According to her, the leadership of the church would rest on the youth in the nearest future; therefore it was essential to re-orientate the younger generation to be able to sustain the vision of the founding fathers.

Foluke-Kolade pointed out that the social re-engineering would conform to the needed traits of responsibility on the people to advance the vision and aspirations of the body in the years to come. She pointed out that the youths would be supported through education scholarships to make them ready for the future.

“As the church is approaching its centenary the Lord is saying ahead of us creating and charting a new course for the future of the youth by taking them through the process of rebirth to change their mindset toward desired objectives.”

She decried the nonchalance of youth to the gospel saying the rebirth would dovetail to the larger society when people of faith exert energy and resources to it with a view to repositioning the country’s national values.
