The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has during the annual Holy Ghost Congress of the church, shared a short prayer for the naira.
Pastor Adeboye during his sermon prophesied that the Nigerian currency, the Naira, will rise in strength once again.
Adeboye’s prayer comes following the persistent fall in value of the naira, trading at a shocking low of N500 to $1 at the black market earlier this month.
Pastor Adeboye prayed for God’s intervention in Nigeria’s economic crisis, reminiscing of a time the naira was so powerful all he need was N5000 to feed his church congregation.
The 78-year-old cleric said:
“During our first Convention here at the Redemption Camp, I was bold, I asked everybody to come, free feeding. They came, I ran out of money. My wife came to me in the morning, ‘Sir, we need N5,000.’ Naira was powerful then. It will become powerful again. Those who are deliberately devaluing our naira, before tomorrow morning, God will intervene. So, my wife said we needed N5,000.
“I asked her, ‘Do you need it today or later?’ She said today. I didn’t have a kobo. I told her to go. I cried to God that I needed a breakthrough. It wasn’t long after that, one man drove in, he wasn’t a member of the church. He asked what’s going on and we said we are having a Convention. And then, he put his hands in his pocket and brought out an envelope with some money. I then called on my wife and asked her, ‘How much do you say you need?”
