THE Grand President of Benin Grand Commandery of Knight of Saint John International (KSJI), Brig. Gen. Joseph Ojobu has urged members of the Order to be prepared at all times to defend the church and to make heaven.
Brig. Gen. Ojobu made the call today, January 11, 2014 at a seminar for members of KSJI in Asaba, Delta State.
According to the Grand Knight, members of KSJI should equip themselves with good knowledge of the Bible and the Church, stating that Knights should be able to defend the words of God at all times.
Brig. Gen. Ojobu also urged KSJI members to also be very prayerful and have good knowledge of the Rosary saying that there are spiritual benefits derivable from the Rosary.
“You must attend Mass at least three times a week and you should avoid anything that will make you not to make heaven,” the Grand President said, reiterating that acts of charity and assisting people in need is compulsory for all KSJI members.
In a lecture titled, “Importance of Prayers”, Revd. Fr. Samuel Igwenwanne said prayer is one of the main instruments to wage spiritual war, stating, “prayer is lifting up ones heart to God, the father.”
“As Knights, we need interior prayers, we need to communicate with God and listen to the voice of God,” he said, adding “in prayer, you need faith and belief.”
He emphasised, “there is no way you can pray without forgiving those who have offended you, as a Knight, you must learn to forgive and you must develop the culture of reading the Bible always.”
