The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor E.A Adeboye and other ministers of God on Tuesday (today) led Christians in Nigeria and diaspora to pray for Nigeria over the current killings and other crisis going on in the country.
Pastor Adeboye during the last month Holy Ghost Service usually held by the church every last Friday announced that he will be anchoring a 3-hour inter-denominational prayer section on behalf of Nigeria.
The clergyman who likened the present situation of Nigeria to simultaneous equations said activism is different from prayer, and men can be bribed and compromised but God can never be bribed urged his children to join him in the prayer.
He reminded the congregations of notable prayers held by the church in past years and how God answered the prayers speedily.
“Remember that we prayed about kidnappers last year and God answered our prayers and this will also not be an exception because our prayers will be answered.
“I know that the time for the prayer is a working hour but I encourage people who can not participate in the prayer to watch it on the TV and the internet because it will be air live and also ‘re-broadcast latter in the day,” he said.
The prayer meeting which was held between the hours of 10am-1pm at the RCCG old auditorium was well attended and powerful prayer points were raised against the tormentors of Nigeria as well as the growth and development of the country.
The prayer points raised at the session include prayer of mercy and forgiveness for the nation, prayer for Nigerian leaders, asking God to control their heart.
Prayers were also said to improve the economy and growth of the nation. Prayer were raised against the forthcoming election in 2019. The Paramilitary, police, SARS, Airforce, Navy, LASTMAN, CUSTOMS and IMMIGRATION were also prayed for as well as other sectors in the nation.
The prayer was led by anointed men of God in the nation and these include: Pastor Adeboye, Pastor Mrs. Folu Adeboye, Prophet Isa Elbuba, Prophet T.V Adelakun, Pastor Taiwo Odukoya, Bishop Oscar Osai, Bishop Christopher Kolade among others.
