Protesting, cursing Nigerian leaders fruitless, pray for them – Adeboye

Pastor Richard Adeboye, the pastor in charge of Redeemed Christian Church of God‘s Region 12, has urged more people to pray for the nation’s leaders to overcome the variety of difficulties and problems.

Adeboye stated that Nigerians should rely on prayer as a tool for a desired turnaround for the sake of the nation, as opposed to complaining and condemning them as they had in the past without any positive result.

The cleric said this in an interview with reporters at this year’s Halleluyah Mega Praise Night, Season 2, which had the theme “Dominion” and was hosted at Shimawa High School in Ogun state.

He said: “There is no nation like Nigeria. The fact that we are still surviving is a symbol that God has created this nation in a very unique way and very soon, we shall shout victory at last.

“Nigerians should stand in the place of responsibility, because I have this philosophy that every possibility of God is compelled by the responsibility of man. Let’s do what we’re supposed to do.

“Let’s move closer to God. And let’s believe in God and whatever we need to do physically, let’s do it. We’re not saying we should protest or fight against the government. We have done that in the past, we didn’t win the battle.

“The Bible says that the heart of the king is in the hand of God. If only we could talk to God that put them there, I believe things will change and very soon, it will change for the better.

“My message to our leaders is that they should recognise the one that actually put them on the throne. We should stop fighting our leaders. The role of the church is to preach righteousness and establish integrity. If the world sees that what we preach is what we are doing, I believe it will go round and it will be contagious, and very soon, everybody will be affected.”
