A one-day seminar titled “Understanding Divine Healing” was organized by the Centre with the initiative for the care of children with developmental disorders, on Saturday 18th February, 2017. The seminar took place at Guiding Light Of Assembly Church, Park View Estate Ikoyi, Lagos. The programme started with an opening prayer, followed by praise and worship session and then talks from different speakers.
The first speaker, Dr. Edebi Otefe, an occupational psychiatrist and psychologist gave a talk titled “Healing is God’s will”. He made it known that God can heal in two dimensions i.e, He can heal instanteously and can heal without medical intervention. He concluded by saying that God might not always take away the disease, and he made reference to Paul’s condition in the Bible.
The second speaker, Mrs Uche Mbagwu talked on the topic “Faith for healing”. She spoke about the components of faith (trust, confidence, belief and expectancy),as well as the hindrances to faith with biblical references.
The third speaker, Mrs Dotun Akande, gave a word of exhortation titled “Why me syndrome?”, citing references from the Bible. She spoke on the treasure God placed in the hands of humans which we don’t take cognizance of. She also admonished the audience to see with faith what God has perfected in their hands. After the talks, the audience was invited to share testimonies and ask questions, after which the closing prayer was offered, and lunch was served.
