Pastor Enoch Adeboye, General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, has enlisted 1,000 prayer warriors to join him in praying for Nigeria and the rest of the world to be free of COVID-19.
Adeboye claimed that the world’s people had failed to recognize that they had sinned against God and that they needed to repent of their sins in order to stop the virus.
He spoke during the church’s early Saturday morning Crossover Service in Ogun State.
Adeboye stated that the world is producing one vaccine and that new vaccination-resistant variations are emerging, necessitating a booster shot.
“Convulsion is still on in the world and the world has failed to apologise to God. What got me more concern is that Omicron is not a baby of COVID-19, it is the grandchild of COVID-19. That is why it is moving faster but softer,” he said.
He said there was no way he could tell he senate and the house of representatives members to repent because they would call him bluff as he is not their leaders.
To get out of this problem, Adeboye said a friend of his suggested that he should pray and apologise to God on behalf of Nigeria and the world.
“I need 1,000 volunteers, strong Christians, young and prayer warriors to join me in seeking the face of God for Nigeria and for the world.
Adeboye said the volunteers would join him in 72-hour of fasting and praying continuously, saying that the first 24 hours would be devoted to praying for Nigeria, 24 hours for the world while the remaining 24 hours would be made known to them what it would be used for.
He stated that the 1,000 volunteers would be selected on first come first serve basis, saying that the praying and fasting would kick off in February 2022.
Adeboye said the situation of COVID-19 had reached a stage that any country that would detect any other variant would conceal it to avoid what happened to South Africa when its government opened up on the Omicron variant.
“In the future, those who would detect another variant will not talk. We need to do something urgently so that there will not be another variant,” he said.
