Women Ministers of God under the aegis of Women Intercessory Network(WIN),Oyo State chapter,have advised wives to be highly submissive ,loyal and obedient to their husbands despite their occasional excesses.
The women ministers included Evangelist Toun Soetan, Rev.Funke Adetuberu , Rev.Sade Babatunde and, Evangelist Lydia Akintola, while Deaconness Florence Ajimobi wife of the state governor who is the initiator and founder of WIN commended the women for their responsiveness to the programme since the last few years.
Speaking in Ibadan during her ministration titled “New day,new time”-Mrs Soetan advised hundreds of women present at the prayer programme to ensure that they have their own means of livelihood to enable them contribute to the upkeep of the family
Referring to how Jesus Christ assembled his disciples from their old work She pointed out that no reasonable woman should be found doing nothing stating that the new day time should find them doing something reasonable at this austere period.< "Reject laziness.If God actually needs you for his service,you are supposed to be known with a vocation.Avoid begging about using your God given gift for survival.Some of you put your children in the custody of relations.It is not safe for prosper parenting",She pointed out. "We decree a new day in our economy,health sector, technology,security,legislature judiciary agriculture and food production .We bind satanic forces and evil principalities and powers set to undermine,frustrate or hinder us, We completely paralyse them and cast them out in Jesus name,She prayed. The gospeller counselled the Women to resist the temptation of calling their children bad names regardless of any provocation by them warning that there is power in tongue despite its smallness as part of the body Quoting from Jeremiah 52-She admonished the women to keep their faith alive especially while seeking the face of God to resolve their challenges. Mrs.Ajimobi,the convener of the programme,frowned at the unforgiven spirit of some wives who always hide under one excuse or the other to insult their husbands She alleged that some women insults their husbands with passion warning that such ungodly misbehaviour could be counted against those women because it is not the wish of God and stressed "let us cooperate with our husbands to sustain good families," Prayers were led for victory against those elements who were behind the shedding of innocent blood in the country and success of the administration both at the state and national levels.
