We give praise, honor and adoration to God who has kept us to witness this year's first Diocesan Women's Conference in the new Diocesan of Amichi. Indeed, it is the Lord's doing and it is marvelous in our sight. We thank Him also for in Him we live and move and have our being.

INCEPTION OF PRAYER AND SPIRITUALITY.

The prayer and spirituality of this Diocese came into being following the inception of the new Diocese of Amichi. After the inauguration on the 13th January, 2009, the clergy-wives had their first meeting with Bishop's wife on Feb. 2009 during this meeting elections and appointments were made as regard to some key Diocesan women offices and posts and I was chose to be the coordinator of prayer and spirituality.

We started with a night vigil held on Friday 27th Feb. 2009 at the Cathedral church of St. Andrew's Amichi. All the churches in the dioceses were dully represented in this night vigil. It was a real time with God as the spirit of God moved the women to prayer earnestly. Subsequently, our prayers are organized on church levels respectively.

 

 

We scheduled a prayer chains for all women in our churches in such a way that every day of the week, group of churches are standing in the gap for their churches, Diocese, Archdeaconry, Homes and Nation and Large. The three Archdeaconries do their prayers at their convenient times on the once every month. Through prayer & spirituality unit, the clergy wives of this diocese have started their forums for prayers to stand in the gap for their churches, homes, diocese at nation at large. The first prayer meeting held was vary encouraging so much that they decided to be gathering at least bimonthly. The clergy wives also participating unsefully in prayers in preparation and exaction for the wailing women prayer summit. It is highly commendable.
