Ministers’ Wives Urged To Pay Attention To Their Children

The Chairman of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Eric Nyamekye, has urged ministers’ wives to dedicate much time to train and teach their children to be grounded in Christ.

According to Apostle Nyamekye, the greatest treasure to ministers are their children, whom he describes as are a heritage, adding that, it is through them that their generations would be blessed.

The Chairman said this on Thursday, December 8, 2022, at the Dr. Wyatt Memorial Temple, Accra Newtown during the 6th Edition of the Greater Accra Ministers’ Wives Prayer Meeting.

The theme for the meeting was, “Equipping The Church As An Army To Possess The Nations,” – Hebrews 13:20-21 & Ephesians 4:11-12; 6:10-11.

Speaking on the topic, “Children, Our Greatest Treasure,” using Psalms 127:3-5; 37:26, Apostle Eric Nyamekye said that God hopes in parents to raise godly men and women from the heritage He has graciously given them.

“In the long run, the grace of God plays a role in raising godly children, but parents should do their part and God will honour it,” he stated, adding that their divine providence could be linked to how they raise them for the Lord.

He noted that the promise of God could be trans-generational. However, he posited that the role of children in seeing to the fulfillment of these promises cannot be overlooked.

Reading Genesis 18:18-19, he explained that Eli’s priestly line was cut short because of the behaviour of his children, admonishing, “Let us rethink about our children, they are our reward given to us by God.”

He further urged parents to know that the priceless gifts they can give humanity is a child or children they raise to serve God and the state in righteousness.

“Raising children is work but raising godly children could be harder, yet it is worth all the effort,” Apostle Nyamekye iterated.

Reflecting on retirement, he mentioned that in life, we climb and descend. He outlined that when descending during that period in their retirement, a support stick is supplied by children.

“Raise your children in the fear of God. Sow in tears into their lives and in due course, you will reap,” he emphasized, saying, “the children may not necessarily be a biological child. It could be a member or adopted child whom you must take care of.”

The wife of the Chairman, Mrs Mary Nyamekye, led the participants through an intensive session of intercessory prayers, delivering the sick, those in bondage and those waiting on the Lord for the fruit of the womb.

After, the ministers’ wives were taken through a skills training and practical session on Floral Arrangement, facilitated by Deaconess Eleanor Doku, a Floral & Decoration expert.

The gathering brought together wives of Executive Council Members, Area Heads, Apostles, Directors and district ministers within the Greater Accra Region.

Present were Mrs Deborah Agyemang Bekoe (wife of the International Missions Director), Mrs Elizabeth Osei Asante (wife of Kaneshie Area Head), and Mrs. Martha Anane Denteh (wife of the PEMEM Director).
