The State Governor, Hon Seriake Dickson has described the successful completion of his thank-you-tour to the eight Local Government Areas as a manifestation of God’s manifold blessings upon his life and the State.
Governor Dickson stated this while speaking at this month’s edition of the monthly praise night organised by the State Government at Toru-Orua in Sagbama Local Government Area of the State.
Describing the tour as historic and accident-free, Chief Dickson expressed delight and thankfulness to God, noting that he saw the involvement of God from the beginning of the programme to its conclusion.
The Governor, who expressed his happiness with the songs of praise, said he cannot thank God enough considering the blessings he receives from the Lord on a daily basis.
A grateful Governor Dickson also used the opportunity to appreciate the Clergy, Chiefs and people of the State for their prayers and support, urging detractors to turn a new leaf and join the restoration team in building Bayelsa to an enviable height.
In a brief exhortation titled “Purposeful Praise and Worship”, the General Overseer of the Liberation Power Ministry, General Stephen Odede described effective praise as a potent weapon of war against adversarial forces.
Making reference to the biblical Jehoshaphat; General Odede emphasized the need for Christians to imbibe the spirit of praise in order to move God’s hand for victory over their enemies and experience increased blessings.
The Wife of the Governor, Dr. Rachael Dickson read the only lesson at the service which featured gospel artistes such as Rev. Fyneman Meshack, Elder Dempster and Brother Abraham of King of Glory Chapel gospel band.
The praise and worship night service was attended by Government functionaries, and the Clergy, including the Chairman of Christian Association of Nigeria, Bayelsa State Chapter, Senior Apostle Israel Ege, Bishop Ebi Belepeigha and the Chaplain of the King of Glory Chapel, Government House, Rev. Dotimi Egbegi.
The King of Glory Chapel Choir and their Sagbama Restoration Mass counterparts participated at the praise night.
