Senator Wants Legislators Pray For Liberia

By Winnie Dixon

MONROVIA, September 12 (LINA) - Senator Clarice A. Jah of Margibi County has called on members of the National Legislature to seek God’s divine intervention in the current Ebola crisis, rather than merely rely on human ingenuity.

The senator said unless members of the Legislature, who are leaders of the country, recognize God in this crisis, they stand to fight a losing battle.

Speaking in an interview with the Liberia News Agency Thursday, she indicated that after witnessing the discharge of a mother and her new born child from the Ebola Treatment Unit at the ELWA Hospital on Wednesday, “God was made manifest as the only One who can stop the virus.”

The pair came in contact with the treatment unit after the mother, who was then pregnant and showing signs of Ebola, gave birth in the ambulance while being conveyed to the center.

Senator Jah described the woman’s situation as a double emergency, “a delivery case and an Ebola patient”.

She noted that in this sort of situation, it would have been likely that even the family members would have lost hope due to the country’s high maternal and infant mortality rates, and the complication of the Ebola situation that has killed over 1,000 Liberians.

She pointed out that while medical and preventive measures continue to be the tangible ways, “leaders need to seek God’s face in this battle.”

Meanwhile, the plenary of the senate has agreed to form part of the prayer service slated to take place in front of the Providence Baptist Church on Ashmun Street in Monrovia shortly.
