Cleric says Praises, Worship Exalt a Nation
By: Our Correspondent
Apostle Yakubu Yusuf, the Senior Pastor of House of Purpose Ministry in U/Sunday, Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State, has urged Nigerians to continue praising God in all situations they find themselves in, stating that praise and worship exalt a nation.
In an interview with the media on April 2nd, 2023, ahead of the forthcoming Music Concert organized by the Voice of Purpose Choir, titled “Bethel Experience,” Apostle Yakubu urged Nigerians to continue in true worship to heal the land of its current challenges.
According to him, to exalt means to think and speak highly of someone, and if you can’t think, you can’t speak out for someone. The Lord is calling on Nigerians to think and reflect so that they can speak highly of God and praise His name.
Apostle Yakubu, therefore, admonished Christians not to be spectators during praise and worship but to key into it because God always does marvelous things when His creatures give Him the desired praise and worship.
Speaking on the program, Pastor Uchenna Henry Abba, the Minister in charge of House of Purpose Ministry Choir, said that it is the third program in a row slated for April 9th, 2023, and will be unique.
Pastor Uchenna advised Nigerians to adore the King, exalt Him, speak highly of Him, praise Him, think of His goodness and greatness, and pray to Him.
He said, “People should know the importance of praising God, no matter the circumstances we find ourselves in. Whether we are rich, happy or unhappy, ill or healthy, comfortable or uncomfortable; whether the economy is buoyant or lean, we should praise the Lord. The battle may be strong, but God never fails and has never lost any battle. He triumphs after all tribulations.”
Similarly, Michael Boniface, the Music Director of Voice of Purpose, disclosed that Gospel Ministers from within and outside Kaduna are expected at the 3rd Bethel Experience.
Boniface urged Christians to continue to praise the Lord and let the devil go mad. At the end, they will shame their enemies. “Everything that is lost will be recovered; everything will turn around for good because God has never been a failure. God will change the situation. We should make sacrifices of praise to the Lord,” he charged.
