The Dean Emeritus of the Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion), Most Rev. Adebola Ademowo, has urged Nigerians to turn to God in prayers for peace and tranquility in the country.

Ademowo made the call at a news conference to herald the 3rd session of the 32nd Synod of the Diocese of Lagos, Anglican Communion.

“There is an urgent need for all to go back to God, the author of peace in prayers.

“With the goings-on in our world today, false doctrines, false teachings abound everywhere; the synod wants to enjoin members to go back to the basics.

“We should confess our sins, repent and pray to God to return our nation back to the era of peace and progress,’’ he said.

Ademowo said that the theme of the synod was: `The Authority of the Scriptures’.

According to him, no prophesy ever comes by the impulse to men but that it comes to men moved by the Holy Spirit.

“The word of God is inspired and it speaks to every situation.

“Emphasis will be laid on the word of God, encouraging our members, more than ever before, to read, mark, learn and inwardly digest the word of God.

“The word of God is therapeutic. It is a necessary lubricant to our souls and bodies.’’

He prayed that the season would usher Nigerians to a season of new hopes and abundant blessings.

Ademowo noted that God would shower His love and protection on the country so that Nigerians would unite and abide in love and peaceful co-existence.
