The Redeemed Christian Church of God has declared that religious leaders around the nation ought to keep praying for political leaders instead of criticizing them for their failures or broken campaign pledges.
The revelation was made at the Halleluyah Mega Praise Night Season 2 at the Shimawa High School in Ogun State by Richard Adeboye, the pastor-in-charge of Region 12 of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Ogun Province 4.
Adeboye pointed out that nothing has changed despite the arguments and protests of religious leaders, which is why prayers are necessary.
The cleric insisted it was obvious that fighting the country leaders about the situation of the nation, was not the best option.
Speaking on the theme of the Mega Praise, ‘Dominion’, Adeboye said Nigeria needs to have dominion of its affairs to avoid external forces to dictate to her.
“There is no nation like Nigeria. For 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 the heart of the King is in the hand of God. If only we can talk to God that put them there, I believe things will change and very soon it will change.
“My message 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 what we preach is what we are doing, I believe it will be go round and it will be contagious, and very soon, everybody will be affected.”
