Rivers Dedication Service: It Is Wrong To Import Clergymen – Nwator …’God Also Hears Rivers People When They Pray’

The International President of Integrity & Faithful Ministers World Network, Bishop (Dr.) Friday Nwator, has queried the rationale behind continued invitation of clergymen from outside Rivers to come and pray for the state, describing it as unnecessary.
He recalled that for the past ten years or more, Rivers State has been importing men of God from outside to pray for her and yet nothing much has changed.
Bishop Nwator, stated this in Port Harcourt, while reacting to a question by journalists who wanted to know why of God should be brought from outside to pray for the state always, citing this year’s state dedication service coming up on 28th of this month, as another case study.
Frowning at the arrangement, the Eleme born medical doctor, who said he has been a bishop for eleven years, lamented thus, “are there no people in Rivers State who God can hear their prayers and cries concerning Rivers State? Is it only people from out the state that God can hear? Those men of God may be pastors in their own states, but does it mean that Rivers does not have men of God?”
Bishop Nwator, who is the Founder and General Overseer of House of Peace Ministries, noted that those clergymen invited from outside also have challenges in their own states just like Rivers, adding that “all those who support importing prayer people, God is asking: “Is there no healing balm in Rivers State? A lot of people can’t say what am saying, but am saying it because I love Rivers State and I know God hears me”.
Paraphrasing the book of Jeremiah 8:22, Nwator said: “Is there no balm in Rivers State? Is there no physician in Rivers State? Why is it that our leaders cannot see that there is healing balm in Rivers State?”
He Recalled how he mobilized a group of bishops, pastors and Christian faithful from different states in Nigeria to pray against the flood in September last year, at the House of Peace, in Port Harcourt, which he said made the flood to cease causing rainbow to appear in the sky, as a reminder of God’s covenant with Noah. Bishop Nwator, who is also famous for going into the creeks to preach to Niger Delta Militants in the peak of the crisis and converted nearly 2000 of them to Christ, called on the authorities and power that be to look inward to see if there is a remnant of the clergymen whom God can use to sanitize the state. ####
