With Prayers, Necessary Changes, Nigeria Would Overcome Its Problems – Adeboye by GoggleB(m): 4:19pm On Aug 17, 2016
Abuja - Pastor Enoch Adeboye, General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God has called on Christians to continue to pray for peace to take centre stage in the country.


He made the call on Tuesday night at the 8th Edition of the monthly Divine Encounter in Abuja.

The General Overseer also urged the Christians not to treat words from God with levity, adding that ‘’a word from God is capable of altering a person’s destiny for good.’’

The Cleric, who made reference to Jacob in the Bible, explained that Jacob’s name was changed to Israel, meaning ‘’May God prevail” due to some circumstances he had with his brother.

``After the change of name, Israel became a great nation, the pastor said.”

He said that the current challenges in the country should not be seen as permanent, adding that with prayers and necessary changes, Nigeria would overcome its problems.

Adeboye assured Nigerians that ‘’one word from God can settle all issues of life’’ including the current challenges in the country.

``A word from God can begin a person’s journey to glory.”
Quoting Book of 2 kings, Chapter 4, verses eight to 17, in the story of the Shunammite woman, the cleric recalled that the word of God, through prophet Elisha, changed her destiny for good.

According to Adeboye, when God speaks to an individual, the manifestation of that word results into abundant supply.
``When God speaks, it is done”.
Adeboye, however, called on Christians to turn away from sin and embrace righteousness and holy living.

The Vice-president Yemi Osinbajo and his wife, Dolapo and Oby Ezekwesili, former Minister of Education were among prominent personalities that attended the programme.

Highlights at the event were prayer for the peace of Nigeria and for the release of Chibok girls.

I don't get it.

This man, like other men who do this job, have forever prayed, fasted and held vigils for Nigeria yet everything about the country is getting worse. Yet, they still keep saying pray.

Yhe same way many of them prayed, fasted & had visions of Boko Haram's death yet it kept getting stronger and they all had to hide away from making any statements on BH.

It is like a case of a bad transmission in a car, the car won't go anywhere till the problem is fixed, praying from now through the next 100 years won't fix it.

These men should start telling the obvious truth & quit taking us back to the method that has not fixed anything in Nigeria.

God or prayers doesn't change a country, people change things.
With the amount of churches and prayers in Nigeria, Nigeria would have been greater and more advanced than USA.

Just sit in your house and continue waiting on your imaginary God to come down from heaven and change Nigeria

This is what will keep on holding Nigeria back, prayer without action or work. Many Nigerians only pray but don't work for it. Like the bible said "faith without work is dead"

God has already answered our prayers.

The main thing is to shun corruption. Nothing more, nothing less.

This is to the "Delta state environmental protection agency" in particular and all other related bodies. Please for the sake of the generation yet unborn, lands owners and investors or would be investor(s) in the twin towns of ORUWHORUN and ARAGBA in Udu LGA of delta state, We call on all relevant authorities to check the activities of sand dredgers, whose operations are causing serious havoc and untold environmental hardship to residents and visitors alike. A visit to some of their numerous sites in the company of my business partners while searching for lands to locate/site our factory leaves everyone in the team/entourage awed and speechless, seeing the vast level of wanton destruction and environmental degradation perpetuated by just some few elements who are supposed to be sons of the soil and their collaborators.
An on-the-site findings reveals that they (dredgers) neither carried out any form of Enviromental Impact Assesment EIA nor care about the effect of their activities on the surrounding houses, some of which are at the verge of collapsing. Also none of them (dredging operator or businessmen) have any form of landed property or investment within the vicinity of their nefarious operation.
As a Nigerian and a deltan, I believe it is everyone's responsibility to watch out for our neighbors, neighborhood and the Enviroment. Hence my using this wonderful forum. I promised some of the residents I spoke with that I will revisit the sites and also help them pass their plea to the relevant authorities through wherever legal means possible. Please Nairalander help repost this until justice is done. Thanks

I don't know why Nigerians love kidding themselves. Truth is,,, you might not pray at all and make the REAL changes and all will become well.

There was a day I was in church and the pastor raised a prayer saying we should pray for Nigeria and its leaders... I was just laughing.

We been praying since 1960 and nothing has been happening grin So e go come happen today

Abeg no be prayer we need... Let the right leaders come and positive change will start

*waiting for the religious people to come and eat me *
