- The cleric added that the lockdown can benefit Nigerians if only they worship God
Pastor Enoch Adeboye of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) on Sunday, June 7, admonished Nigerians to pray to God for the end of coronavirus by June 2020.
During a Sunday service themed Fly over mountains broadcasted on Dove TV, Adeboye encouraged Christians to worship and pray to God for him to make the lockdown a thing of advantage to them.
The cleric said: "Sooner or later, the lockdown will be over. For some people, it will be over sooner than expected. Worship God appropriately and see how the lockdown will be a blessing.
“We pray that before the end of this month let the COVID-19 pandemic be over. Your duty is to wait on God. You can fly over the mountain of failure. Wait on the lord to fly over the mountain of poverty, barrenness, physical lockdown.”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that the head pastor of Daystar Christian Centre, Sam Adeyemi, had said that the church would not be as it used to be after the deadly coronavirus outbreak is over. He made this known during a live chat on Tuesday, May 12.
In the chat, the man of God said that the pandemic will greatly affect churches, as some of them may witness a big reduction in their membership as many members might just want to continue worshipping God from home.

“That’s an issue I have pondered upon severally because the church may not be the same again after this COVID-19 experience. As you can see, many people have been receiving messages via online broadcast from their homes. It’s no longer like before that they have to be physically present in churches,” he said.
Adeyemi said that since many are already used to getting broadcast from the comfort of the homes, they would feel reluctant to go to church even after everything comes back to normal.
“Now that many have been used to worshiping God from the comfort of their rooms, will they go to church when COVID-19 is finally over? Many Christians may also feel relaxed on Sundays when they usually go to church,” he added.
