The Speaker in his Christmas message on Thursday urged Christians to pray for the country to overcome the myriad of challenges facing her, especially the issue of insecurity.
He also urged Christians to use the period to pray for their leaders for God’s guidance.
He added that periods like this call for sober reflection and Christians must imbibe the teachings of Jesus Christ, whom he described as a role model to all.
