President Goodluck Jonathan has aked for prayers from the Christian faithful for the peace of Nigeria during and after elections.
Jonathan spoke at the monthly Holy Ghost Service of the Redeemed Christian Church of God at the Redemption Camp, Lagos-Ibadan Expressway on Friday.
Jonathan said he was not in the church to campaign but to thank the leadership and members for the the good they are doing for our country.
He said, “Firstly, let me sincerely thank all of you for the good work you have been doing for our country. I have attended services in some of the branches of this church before.
“I’m not here to campaign because you know very well that Daddy G.O. will not allow his altar to be used for campaign.
“I am here to thank you for your prayers for this country. Everyone passes through challenges. The whole world is passing through the challenge of extremism. Unfortunately, we are having our share of the challenge.
“But we are working harder and with our collaboration with other neighbouring countries, we will soon smile as a country.
“As we are going for the general elections, I request you to devote time to pray for peace in our land. Pray for the elections. The Almighty God knows the best for the country and His Will will come to pass. With your prayers, we will conquer.”
Adeboye led the congregation to pray for the President and the country, assuring that “There will be peace before, during and after the elections. The perfect will of God for this country will come to pass,” he said
