Nigeria Will Overcome Challenges – Bishop Oyedepo


President of the Living Faith Church, (a.k.a Winners Chapel), and Chancellor of the Covenant University, Dr. David Oyedepo, has urged Nigerians to pray for God’s intervention to restore peace in the country, saying that Nigeria will overcome its current challenges.

Bishop Oyedepo who spoke yesterday at the closing of the annual convention of the church, ‘Shiloh 2012’ tagged ‘Double Portion’ at Canaan Land, Ota-Lagos, said Nigeria is strategic in Africa, hence the need for peace to reign supreme in the country.

The cleric who took time to pray for peace in the country, declared that bloodshed and terrorism would end in all parts of the country.

At the event attended by eminent Nigerians including wives of Kwara and Ogun state Governors, Mrs. Omolewa Ahmed and Olufunsho Amosun respectively, Bishop Oyedepo sought the wrath of God on those behind crisis and terrorism in the country.

He said “Nigeria is strategic in two ways. It is the most populous nation in Africa and it is a blessed nation, hence the need for the peace of God to reign supreme in the country. This country must not be burnt and by the prayers of the saints, God’s hands will henceforth rest on the nation and there shall be an end to all forms of crisis from the north to the south of Nigeria.”

He declared further that “Nigeria is today declared a safe haven and the peace of the Lord that passes all understanding will from today reign in this nation. There will be peace in all parts of the country and the fresh hands of God will as from today rest upon this nation.”

Oyedepo, who urged his teeming congregation to pray for President Goodluck Jonathan, who he described as the symbol of the country, stressed that Nigeria would move forward and no power of the enemy will triumph in the country again. Specifically, he prayed for boldness and courage for President Jonathan, even as he asked God to endow him with divine wisdom to lead the country aright.
