The General Overseer of the Living Faith Church (LFC) aka Winners Chapel, Bishop David Oyedepo, has called on Nigerians to unite in prayers to overcome the current challenges confronting the country.
The clergy made the call at the opening ceremony of the annual Winners Chapel Convention, Shiloh 2015, entitled “From Glory to Glory”, at Canaan land, Km 10, Idiroko Road, Ota, Ogun State.
According to Oyedepo, Christians had the ability to bring about changes in their environment and urged them to take advantage of such opportunities.
He urged Nigerians to be spiritually alert in the midst of a revival in order not to miss out of the blessings that God gives.
“The implication of the convention is to bring everybody from all walks of life together and pray for the country.
“We will pray for God’s intervention in the countries that are in conflict; for God to restore peace and change the mind of the people”, he said.
Bishop Oyedepo also exressed confidence that prayer would heal the nations concerned, as there was no situation beyond God.
He offered special prayers for peace of the country and the world at large, and also for members of the church.
Oyedepo said that Shiloh was a mountain of empowerment and divine visitation.
