A cleric, Rev. Tajan Moltok, has urged Nigerians to cast their burdens on God, especially with the COVID-19 pandemic currently ravaging the world.
Moltok, of the Shepherd House Assembly International, Jos, said in his sermon that while following personal and respiratory hygiene against the Virus, there was the need to also commit every health challenge to the hands of God.
The Nigeria News Agency reports that the sermon delivered by the Jos resident pastor of the church was entitled: ‘In times like this.’
“We must draw near to God and those who have yet to receive Christ as their Lord and personal savior should do so.
“Do not be afraid; everything suggests fear, because of the alarming media reports on the death rate over Coronavirus and the apprehension in the entire world.
“We must have faith in God if we must obtain good result. Faith is the ability to trust God beyond doubt,” he said.
Moltok also urged the congregation to maintain positive confession “because those who put their trust in God are like Mount Zion”, adding that they should not give up in any difficult circumstance but lean on God.
The Nigeria News Agency reports that the cleric conducted a special prayer session for healing for those infected by the virus, the country against the disease and other afflictions and for God’s mercy on His people.
He implored the congregation to comply with all government’s directives on preventive measures against the virus, saying God’s children should be law-abiding.
