Prophet T.B. Joshua has asked the Synagogue, Church Of All Nations followers and viewers of his Emmanuel Television worldwide to pray and fast on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday this week.
Prophet T.B. Joshua made the plea after representatives of Chibok in Borno and Dapchi in Yobe on Sunday sought spiritual help at SCOAN to pray for the release of Leah Sharibu and other students kidnapped by the terrorist group, Boko Haram.
The representatives who carried several placards told T.B. Joshua that they were at The Synagogue because they had exhausted all human efforts to get the students released.
A spokesman of the representatives told Prophet Joshua they decided to seek for intercessory prayers at SCOAN for the release of the students after watching his ministry through Emmanuel Television.
He said the group had faith that with prayer and the approval of Jesus Christ could trigger the release of the students who were kidnapped in 2014 and 2018.
Prophet Joshua told them that there was nothing impossible in the sight of the Creator of Heaven and Earth.
He said that “there is nothing God cannot do” and urged all to see the prayer and fasting on the mentioned days as an assignment.
He urged the congregation and viewers of Emmanuel Television worldwide to pray and fast on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, this week, for the release of the remaining students.
On April 14, 2014, 276 female students were kidnapped from the Government Secondary School, Chibok in Borno State. Since 2014, 164 of the students had regained their freedom, while 112 are still held by Boko Haram.
Also on Feb. 19, 2018, no fewer than 110 schoolgirls were kidnapped by the Boko Haram terrorist group from the Government Girls’ Science and Technical College (GGSTC), Dapchi, located in Bulabulin, Yunusari Local Government area of Yobe State.
Boko Haram, an extremist terrorist group based in northeastern Nigeria claimed responsibility for the kidnappings. One hundred and nine of the students were released, except Leah Sharibu, who was said to have refused to denounce Christianity.
Leah Sharibu’s father did not join the group for the service because he had been bedridden by stroke, as a result of the kidnap of her daughter.
