- Nigerian Christian leaders are not relenting in their prayers for Nigeria
- A church programme billed for Sunday, May 9, has set aside the day for massive prayers for Nigeria
- The event which is organised by the Redeemed Christian Church of God, will also witness the presence of other anointed men of God
The Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, has announced that it will organise a 2 million man interdenominational prayer day for Nigeria.
The event is expected to hold at the RCCG Central Parish, Wuse, in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja on Sunday, May 9.
The General Overseer, GO, Pastor E. A. Adeboye, and other anointed ministers are expected to grace the occasion.
The preachers expected at the event include Bishop David Oyedepo of the Living Faith Church Worldwide, Pastor Paul Enenche of the Dunamis International Gospel Centre.
Others are Prophet Isa El-Buba of EL-Buba Outreach Ministries and Pastor EA Odeyemi who is the Assistant General Overseer in charge of education and training in the RCCG.
A tweet by the RCCG headquarters noted that the prayers will focus on national repentance, revival, and recovery.
The information was announced on social media 24 hours before the sad news on Thursday, May 6 that Pastor Dare Adeboye, son of the RCCG GO is dead.
Meanwhile, amid the upsurge in insecurity witnessed across Nigeria, Pastor Adeboye recently declared that God will heal the country.
The man of God made this known in a tweet sighted by Legit.ng on Wednesday, April 28, even as he urged Nigerians of all tribes to pray for the country and the rest of the world.
He went on to ask that God should have mercy on Nigeria amid these difficult times in the country.
Similarly, on Thursday, February 25, Pastor Adeboye canvassed specific prayers against ritualists and kidnappers in Nigeria.
Leading the prayers, the respected pastor listed 15 prayer points for RCCG members to adhere to.
In a related development, the RCCG on Sunday, February 21 held a special prayer walk across the world over the rising insecurity and other challenges confronting Nigeria.
Legit.ng monitored the walk held in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja by the Throne Parish of the RCCG.
Addressing journalists during the procession, Pastor Tunde Benjamins-Laniyi, the pastor-in-charge of the parish, said the prayer intercession was a mandate from God.
He noted that the procession is also taking place in the over 40,000 parish churches of the RCCG in 198 nations across the world.
