    Published By:

    Fr. Kelvin Ugwu, a Nigerian Catholic priest serving in Gambia has expressed his disgust at the viral video of single women dressed in wedding gowns while praying for husbands.

    Wakadaily earlier reported that some single Nigerian women has sparked outrage from social media after they attended a faith-testing prayer service wearing wedding gowns.

    The video was posted by Nollywood actress, Chacha Eke who came with her husband, Austin Faani at the event.

    Reacting to the viral video, Fr. Kelvin Ugwu via his Facebook condemned the act and questioned why men weren’t asked to wear wedding suits and pray for wives.

    The clergyman said what they’re doing is not Christian adding that it’s a disgusting act.

    He said: “It is now becoming a trend, and the more we keep quiet, it will soon be seen as normal.

    To all those churches asking women to wear wedding gowns to church so they can pray to have husbands, what you are doing is not Christian. . . In fact, it is disgusting.

    What sort of desperation is this?

    Why are you not asking the men to put on wedding suits and pray for wives?

    And by the way, why do you need them to put on wedding gowns, is that what make the marriage?

    And to those who will gladly hire wedding gowns and wear them to church because you were told that it would connect you to your husbands, let me ask you this…

    When you pray for husbands, what exactly are you telling God to do?

    That he should suspend the reasoning and choosing capacity of the type of man you want (and it usually rich men you want) so that even when your attitudes, character, and personality are not what he wants, he will close his eyes to all of them and marry you?

    Since those looking for husbands must wear wedding gowns to claim it in faith. . .

    Those who have not entered school but hoping to have their PhDs should borrow graduation gowns and caps  during the 8am service this coming Sunday to claim it in faith.

    Those aspiring to be nurses or doctors should come to church next Sunday with everything doctors use. Come and claim it in faith.

    Women aspiring to go to Ọmụgwọ (a traditional Igbo custom for postpartum care by the mother of the couple) should come with wrappers and baby bathing buckets with baby powder.

    And the biggest one, those seeking to be the next Tinubu, should wear his cap and eyeglasses during the 10 am service.”
