AS the absence of President Umaru Musa Yarâ€™Adua on health grounds continues to generate debate, General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye has called for intensive prayers by Nigerians to forestall a possible suspension of the nationâ€™s constitution by politicians.
In his annual prophesies for year 2010 delivered by the cleric himself during the cross over night service at the Redemption Camp, early yesterday morning, Pastor Adeboye urged prayers for those â€œwho are in authority, that they will not abuse the constitution in order to avoid its suspension.â€
The cleric also called for intensive prayers in order revamp the nationâ€™s economy. His words: â€œIntensive prayers are required to arrest backward sliding.â€
On the international level, Adeboye said â€œthe Lord says you should pray against outbreak of killer disease, adding that recovery from the current global recession will be slow but steady.
â€œWe must pray against natural disasters that are gathering momentum,â€ he said, adding that death will be few this year, but there will be some uprooting of plants that are not planted by God.
Adeboye added that there will be many miraculous recoveries in answer to prayers, but unrepentant sinners will contact incurable disease, stressing that an old star will shine brighter.
He also said many young stars will emerge and intensive corporate worship will move the church on to greater height under open heavens. â€œThe Lord asks me to warn the youth; particularly against late night and keeping the company of doubtful character,â€ he said â€œthe reason He asked me to warn the youth is that; He is going to visit those people with doubtful character, so that the youth will not be caught in the wild fire.â€
For the individual Nigerians, Pastor Adeboye wants them to stay under cover of the Most High to avoid any storm that may come.According to him, there will be miraculous deliverance for some, particularly from accident and there will be some unexpected promotions and open doors.
He says the second half of this year will be better than the first, although there will be galloping blessing from the very first day for some.
