Earlier, the President Plateau South Baptist Conference Rev. Dr Sunday Gomna in a Sermon reading from the book of Acts 3:1-10 about Peter and John were on their way to the temple for the hour of prayer at three in the afternoon. A man who had been lame from birth, and who was placed daily at what was called the Beautiful gate of the Temple, was being carried there to beg from the people who went in. When he saw that Peter and John were about to go in, he asked them to give him something. But Peter fixed his eyes on him, and John did also, and said, “Look at us.” And the man looked attentively, expecting to receive something from them. Peter said, “I have neither silver nor gold, but what I have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk!” And he took him by the right hand and raised him. And immediately his feet and his ankles received strength and he leapt up, stood on his feet, walked about and went with them into the Temple, walking, leaping and praising God.
