I DO SOLEMNY RESOLVE



I, EMMANUEL FRANCIS CHUKWUDI OBASI, DO SOLEMNY RESOLVE BEFORE GOD, TO TAKE FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR MYSELF, MY WIFE AND MY CHILDREN.

I WILL LOVE THEM, PROTECT THEM AND SERVE THEM AND TEACH THEM THE STATUES OF GOD AS THE SPIRITUAL LEADER OF MY HOME.

I WILL BE FAITHFUL TO MY WIFE, TO LOVE AND HONOUR HER; AND BE WILLING TO LAY DOWN MY LIFE FOR HER AS CHRIST DID FOR ME.

I WILL TEACH MY SONS TO LOVE GOD WITH ALL OF THEIR HEART, ALL OF THEIR MIND AND ALL OF THEIR STRENGTH; AND I WILL TRAIN THEM TO HONOUR AUTHORITY AND LIVE RESPONSIBLY.

I WILL CONFRONT EVIL, PURSUE JUSTICE AND LOVE MERCY.  I WILL TREAT OTHERS WITH KINDNESS, RESPECT AND COMPASSION.

I WILL WORK DILIGENTLT TO PROVIDE FOR THE NEEDS OF MY FAMILY

I WILL FORGIVE THOSE WHO HAVE WRONGED ME AND RECONCILE WITH THOSE I HAVE WRONGED.  I WILL WALK IN INTEGRITY AS A MAN ANSWERABLE TO GOD.  I WILL SEEK TO HONOUR GOD, OBEY HIS WORD AND DO HIS WILL.

AS FOR ME AND MY HOUSE, WE WILL SERVE THE LORD.
