Christians have been advised to imbibe the habit of thanking God in whatever situation they may find themselves.The Parish Priest of SS Peter and Paul Catholic Church, Nyanya, Reverend Father Donatus Akpan, gave the advice during the church's '2012 Adult Harvest and Bazaar' on Sunday.
Rev. Fr. Akpan said although every Christian gives thanks to God daily, the annual thanksgiving harvest is organized to specially appreciate God for His blessings in their lives.
"We give thanks to God for all his creation, especially what He has done to us, individually, and as a group of worshippers, we come together once a year, like this, to give special thanks to God for all He must have done for us throughout the year. But every day, we continue to give thanks individually, privately. So, coming together once a year is a collective thanksgiving for all His blessings on us," he said.
He urged members of the church to use the platform to solicit for God's continuous blessings in the years ahead.
Speaking earlier, Chairman of the church's 2012 Harvest Committee, which was tagged 'Harvest of Divine Breakthrough,' Mr. Solomon Ojile, gave thanks to God who made it possible for his committee to organize the event successfully.
