Must read

Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye, the general overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, on Friday, December 2, 2022, decried the worsening insecurity and economic challenges in the country wondering most times if those in authority understand the agony Nigerians are passing through.

The cleric said this during the end of a seven days prayer and fasting session with the General Overseer and RCCG family held at the New Arena of the church, Simawa, Ogun State ahead of the annual Holy Ghost Congress.

Pastor Adeboye had earlier asked his church members to join him as he prepares to go on national prayer and fasting for the country.

Leading the prayer session which lasted for over three hours, Pastor Adeboye lamented that Nigeria the world’s 6th oil producer of oil still experience incessant hike in diesel price.

In his words: “We are living in a country, one of the biggest oil producing countries in the world, and from what we read in newspapers, the cost of diesel had multiplied for about three times in less than a year.

“Covetousness is on increase, corruption like the whole world has never seen before. It’s only in Nigeria we hear of budget being padded, violent, human trafficking, drug trafficking, you even wonder if our rulers knew what’s going on. Theft of national treasuries on a level that cause you to shiver. It is even difficult now to buy bread. Let’s cry to God as representatives of our nation and ask for mercy, that we are sorry for all our wrong doings,” Pastor Adeboye pleaded to his adherents.

He also advised Christians to rise up to their responsibilities and shine as light in their different domains.

Members of RCCG on Friday, December 2, 2022, gathered in their thousands at the church’s camp to join the General Overseer in supplication for the ailing nation.

We will have to hold on to Him and say, ‘Please help.’ Do you know that up till now, and this is November, Daddy hasn’t told me yet that there’s going to be an election next year.

“We continue of course, as if there’s going to be; I am saying that as Adeboye, I am not talking of other people; God has not told me yet. He may tell me tomorrow, I don’t know, but as of this moment that I am sitting before you, He hasn’t told me whether or not there will be an election next year.

“Of course, as usual, anybody who comes to me and he says, “pray for me,” I will pray for them. That’s my duty, but it is up to God to answer.

“I am not trying to frighten you; I am not telling you that I know something secret that you don’t know; I am not a prophet I am just a pastor; but I am your Pastor. We need to pray. So I expect to see all of you on Friday the 2nd of December; come ready to pray.”
