PVCs awaiting collection.

Founder of the Love of Christ Generation Church, Reverend Esther Ajayi, has urged Christians to back their prayers with action by getting their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) and vote in the forthcoming general elections.

The cleric, also known as Iya Adura, gave the charge in a statement recently in Lagos, South-West Nigeria.

Enjoining Christians to exercise their civic duties by voting to install their preferred leaders in the forthcoming elections, she noted that her charge was not to belittle the importance of prayers but to stress that prayer alone is not enough in the matter.

“My advice to Nigerians is to look at this card I’m holding; this is my PVC. It is your power.

“I wanted to talk to my people about it today, but that didn’t happen because I had to come here. It’s my agenda for our meeting next week.

“The PVC is your power, don’t lose it. Go and vote; that is the only way you can change whoever is leading.

“At least your conscience tells you that you’ve got to vote. So, go and vote!

“Prayer will help you. Prayer is important, but when you carry out the practical aspect of prayer, it enhances the prayer, and makes it go straight to God,” she said.

Ajayi also hinted on how Nigerians could navigate the year 2023 successfully and tagged the year as “2023: the Year of Possessing My Possessions”.

She urged Christians to be more graceful, and more loving, quoting that the Bible described love as the principal virtue.

Ajayi also called on Christians to develop and nurture relationships, just as Jesus Christ.

She, however, advised Christians to be mindful of acquaintances with ulterior motives, but, as much as possible, have peace with all humankind.

“There is a place for healthy interpersonal relationship. That’s what Hebrews 12:14 tells us.

“That is the counsel of God, and the benefits are not just personal but go a long way,” she said.

Ajayi also noted that, though globally, times are hard, but that Christians, in response to the economic difficulties, should stay prayerful and try to improve on their approach to evolving innovations and technologies.

“Times are changing fast, and unemployment rate is increasing.

“Even well-educated people are finding it difficult to get jobs, and this puts extra strains on families.

“But with prayers and the right attitude to emerging fields and current technologies, I’m sure Nigerians will have better chance,” she said.
