Dr. Michael Nyamekye - Mothers Must Go On Their Knees Not Stand On Heels
The General Overseer of The Maker’s House Chapel International, Dr. Michael Boadi Nyamekye has charged mothers to live up to the responsibility of continually interceding for their children for them to become the great men and women God wants them to be.According to him, God had placed the destiny of children in the hands of mothers and for that purpose, mothers cannot afford to take their eyes off directing the paths of their offsprings.Dr. BoadiNyamekye gave the admonishing on Sunday, Mother’s Day, a day dedicated for the celebration of mothers worldwide. The day also climaxed a weeklong activities set aside by the church to celebrate women.
Preaching on the theme; “Mothers on Vacation,” Dr Nyamekye urged mothers to “partner with God for them to become what they have been programmed to do”.Speaking about some of the practices that bedevilled the role of mothers in the home, he said “you are too busy on WhatsApp that you have even forgotten that your child brought a home work from school”.“It is what the mother will do that will determine the destiny of their children,” he stated.Drawing his message from the book of 1st Kings 3:16-27, Dr. Boadi Nyamekye added: “The language of a child is only understood through the voice of the mother”.
“You can’t be on vacation as a mother. The mother’s job is not just to procreate, the mother’s job is actually an intercessor. Mothers should be intercessors, motherhood should not be a title, it’s a responsibility”.Admitting that the woman was usually at a disadvantage due to societal norms, the Man of God maintained that “the woman is the one God gives custodian of the destiny of their children…because it takes a mother to hold the hand of the child and drag that child to where it is supposed to go”.
“If your child is not doing well it is the mother’s responsibility not to stand on heels but to go on her knees,” he added.
