Bishop Oyedepo declares seven days fasting over killings
The President of the Living Faith Church, Bishop David Oyedepo, has declared seven days of prayer and fasting, from July 23-29, 2018, over killings in Nigeria.
In a memo to all the commission’s mission stations on Sunday the cleric said the decision was hinged on the “uncontrollable and persistent killings of fellow citizens” in Nigeria.
The Bishop urged the congregation to partake in order not to become a victim to such attacks.
“A flood of evil is determined to work against the nation by the powers of darkness, but God forbids that Christians would be found sleeping.
“Remember, in the days of Noah while people went about eating and drinking, getting married, and giving in marriage, building houses, planting vineyards and so forth, they did not know when suddenly the flood came and flushed them all away.
“May the days of Noah does not repeat itself in our days,” he prayed.
Oyedepo urged his congregations and all Nigerians that desire the peace of the nation to engage in the prayer and fasting, for the rescue of the nation.
The leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), had earlier declared a three-day National Day of Prayers and Fasting against the killings across the country.
