Worried by the excruciating fuel scarcity that has almost grounded economic activities to a halt in the country, General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye, on Monday evening, in Abuja, led thousands of worshippers to pray for the final cessation of the economic monster.
In a prayer session that lasted for about seven minutes, Adeboye led the prayer session after mounting the pulpit at about 6:20 p.m. during the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) version of the monthly Divine Encounter programme held at the National Stadium, Abuja, on Monday evening.
The mood of the prayer session smacked off some desperation by Nigerians to see to the end of the debacle as the congregants prayed earnestly to God for a soonest and final solution to the dilemma.
“Pray that the fuel scarcity be over soon and pray that this will be the last time we will ever have such occurrence in the country,” the renown cleric admonished the worshippers to supplicants unto God.
Adeboye, who wondered how, in spite of the biting fuel scarcity, the worshippers were able to maneuver their way to the stadium in their large numbers, appreciated them for the never-say-die spirit.
Speaking on two dimensions of encountering God – the one initiated by God and the other initiated by man – the cleric admonished Nigerians to eschew lukewarmness and be diligent in seeking the face of God for whatever breakthrough they so desire.
In the programme monitored on Dove Television, the official TV channel of RCCG in Warri, Delta State, the man of God prayed for the congregation, asking God to multiply and give them a new song.
Dignitaries at the religious event included wife of the preacher, Pastor Folu Adeboye, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and his wife, Dolapo, Chief of Defence Staff, Major General Abayomi Gabriel Olonisakin, the Minister for Health, Professor Isaac Adewole and clerics from other Christian denominations, among others.
