General Overseer, Redeemed Christian Church of God Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has urged Nigerians to pray regularly for the country’s economic development.
Adeboye made the appeal on Wednesday in Lagos at a briefing to announce a special prayer session for chief executive officers of organisations.
An Assistant Pastor in charge of Social Duties in the church, Pastor Goke Aniyeloye, represented Adeboye.
He said development of the country’s economy would boost businesses, expand organisations, increase employment opportunities and reduce vices.
Adeboye said, “Organisations are folding up and unemployment is on the increase in our country; it is contributing to the high rate of poverty.
“It is God’s desire that we all prosper in wealth and in good health because it is uppermost in His mind that we be fruitful and multiply.
“Therefore, we need His divine assistance to help us to succeed in our businesses, professions and vocations to improve ourselves and the society.”
The cleric said the session would hold on June 2, at the church’s headquarters, Ebute Meta, Lagos.
