COVID-19 has shown us that we need prayers
Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State has said that the Coronavirus pandemic has shown Nigerians that there is need for prayers.
He said this at the opening ceremony of the 2nd Session of the 34th Synod of the Diocese of Lagos, while urging everyone to continue to pray for the state and country.
“COVID-19 has shown us in reality that we need to pray. We are not out of it yet, we need to continue to take precautions. Your prayers has really held us all together.
The church has also participated in series of activities during the lockdown, various donations have been given to the citizens and I thank all churches for these”.
Speaking further, the governor said that the numbers were gradually going down in the state.
He also sympathised with everyone that had lost someone during the pandemic.
“This is a painful thing and as a government we will continue to do what we need to do to keep life alive."
He said that the theme, “Pray, Serve and Grow’, was apt due to the ongoing pandemic ravaging the world.
“Service to the Lord is serving, loving and supporting one another.For us to build a greatest Lagos, we certainly need to hold on to God and pray.
We certainly need to use God as an instrument of contact for all of us,” he said.
He, however, appreciated the frontline health workers who had been working tirelessly during the pandemic.
