Nagaland Baptist Church Council (NBCC) has called upon all the Baptist Churches to join in a special ‘Family Prayer Time’ from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. during August 9-16, 2020.  

In a press release, NBCC general secretary Rev. Dr. Zelhou Keyho has urged the members to pray for strength and wellbeing of COVID-19 frontline workers of Nagaland, pray for the containment of COVID-19 disease, pray for the healing of COVID-19 positive people and pray for God’s wisdom upon “our political leaders and the future of our people.”

Appeals not to harass healthcare workers: NBCC has expressed pain over the reports that some members of the medical fraternity being harassed and even evicted from their colonies and homes or restriction placed on their mobility etc. 

With such hardships meted out to them, NBCC said some medical personnel have reportedly resorted extreme steps by resigning from duty.  

At this crucial juncture, NBCC said “we need a whole-of-society resolve that we will not let our frontline soldiers to be harassed or become patients themselves.”

It urged all responsible to do everything to support health workers, who, despite their own well-founded fears, were stepping directly into COVID-19’s path to take care of the patients and help stop the spread of virus.

In this regard, NBCC requited the church and the colony leadership to educate their members and be helpful to frontline workers.
