Founder and General Superintendent of Deeper Life Christian Life Ministry, Pastor William Kumuyi, has declared that prayers alone cannot provide good leadership for Nigeria even as the country prepares for another round of general elections next year.
The cleric made the disclosure during an interactive session with journalists at Ibadan Airport ahead of the six-day global open air crusade, entitled: ‘Total Freedom Through Faith in Christ’, holding at Christ Apostolic Church Grammar School, Aperin-Oniyere, Ibadan, beginning from January 27.
Kumuyi stated that there is no doubts that Nigerians have been praying to God for a better leadership for the country, but they need to match their prayers and faith with corresponding actions for their desires to be met.
‘When we pray, we should also act. God has told us that faith without corresponding action is dead. So, when we pray for the best of leadership, then we should use our minds, get our facts, and vote for the people that God leads us to vote for, that will turn the situation of the country around. We should pray and also act,’ he said.
Kumuyi, however, enjoined Nigerians that not to despair on the insinuation that the country might lack capable people that can take the nation to the Promised Land, saying: ‘we should still have hope in God and we should know that Nigerians are not in total despair. The same Nigerians are doing well in America, Europe and different parts of the world’.
The next general elections in Nigeria is expected to hold in February 2023.
