Pastor Enoch Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), has asked Nigerians to pray for him and his family, particularly church members.
In his sermon on Sunday, Pastor Adeboye made the plea, stating reasons for the prayers’ relevance.
The church’s 79-year-old leader said that he had devoted his entire life to praying for the well-being of his spiritual children all around the world.
“Before I begin the sermon, I’d like to make a specific request that you pray for your pastors this year more than ever before. They are human people, and they pray for you throughout the year; pray for them as well.
“Pray for your pastors also means pray for your General Overseer. Someone asked me, Daddy, we heard you don’t sleep much at night, you are always going for prayer walks, what are you asking God for? Clothes? I said no I have enough to last me a lifetime. House? I said No, God has given me one and I have no intention of moving out of that place. Cars? Definitely not.
“What do you want? I want it to be well with my children all over the world. When there is a storm anywhere in the world, I pray by the grace of God that it doesn’t touch my children.
“If there is an earthquake, I pray my children are not affected. I pray for my children, I don’t think it is too much to ask for my children to pray for me. Pray for me and pray for my family,” Adeboye said.
