The wife of the Bishop of Diocese of Niger Delta North, Mrs. Mercy Oluchi Ihunwo has charged Christian Mothers to always travail in every situation of life as travailing is key to answer to prayers.
Mrs. Ihunwo gave the charge in a sermon during the Mothering Sunday Thanksgiving Service at Saint Paul’s Cathedral, Diobu by Garrison Port Harcourt.
The Bishop’s wife who is also the President of Mothers Union and Women’s Guild stated that Hannah travailed in her situation and God answered her by giving her Samuel.
She described the theme of the Mothering Sunday “Travailing Woman” as apt, pointing out that Christians ought to go to waiting room as no woman that goes to the waiting room comes out the same.
Mrs. Ihunwo urged all expectant mothers to go into waiting room as God who answered Hannah was still in business of Blessing his people.
Radio Rivers reporter Sybil Dimkpa who covered the event reports that cutting of Mothering Sunday Cake, launching of table top Calendar and investiture of mother of the year were highlights of the programme.
