Workers in Adeyemi College of Education (ACE) Ondo have been advised to cultivatehabit of prayers and have strong faith in God in order to enjoy divine visitation and blessings.
This advice was given by a clergyman - cum lecturer in the institution, Johnson Oluremi Falade in a sermon delivered at the October 2017 edition of the College organised monthly prayer meeting held on Tuesday October 3, 2017 in the College.
Acknowledging the wonderful power of God to revert difficult situation to pleasant one, the preacher emphasised the need for everyone irrespective of colour, class, creed and status in the society to build strong relationship with the creator stating that the decision to do so would hasten answers to prayer by God.
He stressed the importance of prayer and advised staff of the Collegenot to lose hope whenever they are faced with difficult situation.
Falade equally harped on the need for people to show gratitude to God always in appreciation for His mercy, protection and provision of needs for all living things.
He said" It is the living that can get hungry, it is the living that get sick, it also the living that can get rich and do physical activities.
" One thing that baffles me is the fact that we ask many things from God but thank him less, we fail to realise that God is the one that provides for everyone".
The French language lecturer urges staff of the College to develope good relationship with God by praising him at all times.
Earlier, in his short admonition, a member of the College pastoral team, Mr. O.O Akinola while quoting the book of 2nd King Chapter 20 v 1-6 and using the story of King Hezekiah to buttress his points advised the congregation to live according to the word of God so as tohave good relationship with God, who has power to reverse unpleasant situation.
He further explained that the decision by God to reverse prophetic utterance of death which was communicated to king Hezekiahby prophet Isaiah was made possible as a result of the good relationship he ( king Hezekiah) had with God.
The prayer meeting which featured bible reading, exaltation and prayer for members of the College Management, staff and students was attended by teaching and non-teaching staff in the institution
