Pastor Adeboye’s prayer which was shared on social media has stirred a controversy amongst users of micro-blogging platform, Twitter.
The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) General Overseer’s prayer centered on suspension of protocols, rules and criteria just like God did for Joseph.
The prayer read;
“Father, let all protocols, rules and criteria be suspended, overlooked and overruled, as You did for Joseph, in order for me to be promoted, in Jesus’ name”
However some Nigerians felt the prayer encouraged nepotism and mediocrity.
See reactions to the tweet below;
Womyn ; I have a problem when pastors issue these kind of prayers.
There’s a reason we have these rules
Lois ; And then those who actually deserve it get left behind abi? And yet we preach fairness on the pulpit every Sunday
Kapo ; This is encouraging corruption and mediocrity. There are reasons for the protocols, rules and criteria for a better society.
