The general overseer of the Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries (MFM) Worldwide, Daniel Olukoya, has called on all Christians and other men of faith across the globe to join in a seven-day prayer and fasting session against the deadly Coronavirus pandemic.
Olukoya on Monday, April 27, urged all Christians to join hands and revolt against COVID-19, its systems and repercussions.
The firebrand preacher in a prayer programme personally signed by him said the session is to silence the rage of the infirmity and to protect Nigerians from the perils of the disease.
He said the prayer and fasting session has been designed to help Nigerian leaders receive inspiration for divine wisdom to take the nation and the rest of the world out of the gloom of Covid-19.
Stating that the programme is to run from Friday, May 1 to Thursday, May 7, Olukoya urged all participants to add power and fervency to the prayers through fasting to a minimum of 12 noon daily.
The pastor also released the prayer points and working scriptures as 2 Chronicles 7:14: "If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land."
He said the scripture will be followed by praise and worship and then a deluge of 14 powerful prayer points will be prayed daily for the seven days.
