Pastor Folu Adeboye, wife of the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), wept as she led prayers for Nigeria on Friday.
The wife of the Pastor Adeboye, the RCCG General Overseer, who recently lost her son, Dare, wept while leading a prayer session at the May 2021 edition of the church’s Holy Ghost service.
While leading the prayer session during the service, she said Nigeria needed prayers, and that the country was going through a siege, and that guns will not help.
With tears in her eyes, she urged Nigerians to pray to God to liberate the country, and for every other nation to get out of every form of siege that they are going through.
While calling on God to have mercy on Nigeria, she said:
Brethren, today’s prayer is going to be different because there is always a purpose for a season because the Bible tells us in Ecclesiastes Chapter 3 that there is purpose for season. The season that we are in Nigeria now calls for a lot of prayers.
Our nation, Nigeria, is going through a siege and it is so much, so hard and we want God to liberate us even as we connect to other nations and believe that our prayers for Nigeria, God Himself will allow it to reach other nations and other nations will get out of every form of siege that they are going through.
These prayers, if you need to weep, you better weep because weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning. This is the time we need to cry. It is becoming overwhelming, it is too much, people are dying every day from hunger, people are dying every day from all kinds of terrorism, and people are dying from kidnapping.
Meanwhile, Pastor Adeboye, fondly referred to Daddy GO, during the Holy Ghost service, said a third wave of COVID-19 will not happen in Nigeria.
Adeboye said it was for the prayers of Christians that the COVID-19 did not take a detrimental dimension, and that Christians have to pray also for the third wave of COVID-19 not to happen in Nigeria.
He explained that the ability to pray is a gift that summons the Almighty to come and help, and that it takes the special grace of God to remember to pray.
Pastor Adeboye said:
Don’t listen to any person who says it is by their own wisdom that Coronavirus is now subdued in Nigeria. It is because you prayed. You asked God for mercy, and God heard, and in the mighty name of Jesus, there will be no third wave.
But, I want to encourage you that you need to pray again. We have problems of many kinds in Nigeria so very soon, you might be summoned to pray again. We need to pray against all the problems we are facing, and God will answer when we pray.
