Nigerians have reacted to a video trending online showing Prophet TB Joshua, the founder of Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), praying to God to stop the spread of the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).
In a 3 minutes clip seen by POLITICS NIGERIA, the televangelist was seen lying down on a big rock and praying to God. He was also seen sleeping on a mat, looking lean and calling on God for divine intervention.
The pastor, who was dressed in a long white garment, said he has been on the prayer mountain for four days praying to God concerning the scourge ravaging the world.
He prayed: “I have been on this mountain for the past four days, this is where I stay, this is where I sleep to know the mind of God and what is going on concerning the situation right now in the world.
“COVID-19, this is your end! Lord Jesus, You have done it before; do it again,” he declared, further praying for “sin’s power” and “every influence of COVID-19 all over the world” to “be broken.”
The controversial prophet also prayed to God to give all the world leaders wisdom to defeat COVID-19, the pandemic that has practically brought several countries to their knees.
“Give our leaders wisdom and understanding to guide their nations,” he appealed, insisting they needed Divine help in this “critical time”.
The pastor also prayed for those that are sick to be healed. He also asked God to use all the health workers to restore the health of sick ones.
“Whatever sickness in your body, fluids, organs, whatever name they call it – COVID-19, whatever affliction – receive your healing, in the name of Jesus,” he declared.
He added: “Let them sense the presence of God… Lord Jesus, guide the surgeons’ hands.”
However, Nigerians have taken to Twitter to berate the controversial prophet for showing himself praying against the pandemic. They condemned him claiming he was out chasing clout.
While others appreciated the pastor for his intercessory prayer for Nigeria and the world against the dreaded disease.
