Former President, Dr Goodluck Jonathan on Friday, December 10, charged Christians to emulate a former Governor of Plateau State, Jonah Jang, to build places of worship to commune with God.
The former President, who spoke in Jos, Plateau State, during the dedication of the 10 Commandments Prayer Altar built by the Yeshua Kingdom Foundation International, noted that peace, prosperity and unity of the land can be achieved in the place of prayer.
He urged citizens to ask themselves what they would be remembered for when they are no more and challenged all to do what they can in their corner to impact humanity in positive ways.
Jonathan said: “I want to thank the former governor for his vision of building this facility, this is very significant. As Christians, we pray anywhere but sometimes we need a convenient place to commune with God. This is just like going to the mountain to pray. This facility is for all Christians who need to use it for prayers. As a former governor, he has done many things but this is the most important thing.
“It is a lesson for us all, not everyone can mobilize resources to build this but in our little way, we can build prayer altars in different forms. This has taught us a big lesson and I ask myself, what will I do that people will remember me for?”
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, represented by the Chaplain, Aso Villa Chapel, Pastor Seyi Malomo said the altar of prayer be used to pray for unity in the country.
Earlier, Jang in his remark disclosed that the facility is the actualization of a vision he had some years back and its fulfillment is in obedience to God’s will so that there may be holistic discipleship and transformation of generations across nations.
Plateau State Governor, Simon Lalong, represented by the State Commissioner for Agriculture, Hosea Finangwai, described Senator Jang as a vision carrier.
President of the Church of Christ in Nations, COCIN, Rev. Dachollom Datiri, who dedicated the facility, prayed that the body of Christ witnesses unity as Christians gather to pray.
