And hundreds of people went through deliverance on Monday during the prayer and intercession service.
The Marriage Dedication service took place on Sunday 5th April 2015 during the Easter Explosion Conference with four couples dedicating their marriages to the Lord.
Marriage Dedications offers an opportunity to people whose marriages were not blessed in church to dedicate their marriage to God and make a promise to God and between themselves in terms of vows.
In attendance was Presiding Bishop Joe Imakando, Pastor Bernadette Imakando, Former Chief Justice Ms. Lombe Chibesakunda, senior marriage counselors Elder and Mrs. Mutwale, Council of Elders, Pastors, relatives to the couples and members of Bread of Life Church.
Some of the topics taught during the class include:
Finances, in-laws, HIV/AIDS, communication, prayer, studying the word of God, children, intimacy, to mention but a few.
The chairperson for Couples/Marriage fellowship, Elder Chilambwe encouraged the couples to look to God both in good and hard times.
And Bishop Imakando read Colossians 3.18-19 and had this to say to husbands:
- Bless your wife as a priest of the house
- Provide leadership
- Love her
- Affirm her
- Be faithful to her
- Meet her needs
And to the wives:
- Admire him
- Be a wife not a knife
- Respect him
- Be there for him
- Think positively of your husband, concentrate on his strengths
- Attend to his needs
- Be humorous
In addition, the bishop implored the couples to forget what they went through in the past and start afresh.
The Bishop thereafter prayed for the couples and presented them with certificates.
Mr. and Mrs. Banda testified to the glory of God that they were grateful for the wisdom and knowledge they have received from Bishop Imakando and the entire leadership of the Couples Ministry.
During the dedication class they learnt that it’s important to forgive your partner, learn to love, communicate, share resources, pray together, to mention but a few.
And the Vote of Thanks was given by Mr. and Mrs. Chibesakunda, who thanked the church and their families for the love, patience and leadership shown to them.
