A ranking Lagos State House of Assembly lawmaker, representing Ifako-ijaiye constituency 02, Hon. Rasheed Makinde, yesterday hosted the leadership of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Ojokoro chapter, APC ward Excos and Ojokoro Formidable Team members for a prayer session at his resident in Abule Egba.
The prayer session, which was tagged; ‘Keeping Faith in thy Lord’ sermon was delivered by Pastor C. G. Coker, chairman CAN, Ojokoro.
He said, “faith in thy Lord can make impossibility, to be possible.”
While picking his own lesson to the body of Christ and all brethren seated, Hon. Makinde read a Bible passage from the book Matthew 6 vs. 31-32.
Which read part _”³¹ so do not worry, saying, what shall we eat or what shall we drink, or what shall we wear, ³² For the pagans run after all these things, and heavenly Father knows that you need them” Amen.
Speaking further, Hon. Makinde appreciates everyone present at the prayer session, thanked the body of CAN in Ojokoro LCDA for their continual support, and urged them to continue imbibe the spirit of oneness.
“Though I am a Muslim, but I so much appreciate everything about CAN, I am really proud of them”
