Speaking at the occasion in Government House, Mrs. Roli Nere Uduaghan said that women who are co-creators with God occupy a very important position in the scheme of things.
She also described women as mothers of all the living, a life spring, an enhancer who have so much authority and power in their mouth, adding that women are home builders whom God has already equipped with good qualities in life.
Mrs. Uduaghan who stated that training up a child is the responsibility of every mother, highlighted all the women in the Bible who helped to generate blessings for their children. She advised that we should not take a child for granted, with our mouth we can change his or her situation.
A woman’s position, she said, is to position and not to destroy. According to her, ‘the seed of a woman will bruise the head of the serpent, mothers are co-creator with God, let us stand on that position God has given us to amend things, we must tell God that our womb must bear precious children’. She prayed that god will make our children to reconcile with Him.
The occasion featured praise and worship, alter calls and special prayers for children, husbands, first born children, women looking for fruit of the womb, Delta State and Nigeria at large.
