With Prayers, Necessary Changes, Nigeria Would Overcome Its Problems – Adeboye


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.
