As leaders of various denominations are urging Christians to seek God’s divine intervention on novel Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, Enlighten Christian Gathering (ECG) church is today concluding its 3 days crisis fasting and prayer it initiated to pray over the pandemic.
The programme which the church started on Monday 25 January 2021 was initiated by its leader Prophet Shepherd Bushiri who said to have set the arrangement to provoke the hosts of heaven to safeguard its people pestilence that has threatened the lives of many.
Communicating through the Prophet’s official facebook page, Bushiri stipulated that they are wrapping up the Crisis fasting with a prayer point; “Oh Lord, let my family and I experience divine protection in this season.”
Quoting the book of 2 Thessalonians 3:3 that denotes, “But the Lord is faithful, who shall establish you, and keep you from evil.”, Bushiri urged Chrisitians to declare with boldness that one believer should die prematurely during these pandemic times.
He said; “As you pray today, declare with boldness that, no one in your family or sphere of influence will die suddenly or prematurely in this season. As it is written let it be so, that the Lord will keep you away from harm.”
“Mention each of your family members by name and speak a word of protection over them. Cover them by the blood of the lamb and create a hedge of fire to envelop them.”
During the 3 days fasting programme Christians were also under Prophetic Instructions which includes: Mentioning “Oh Lord protect me!” for seven times, Reading and Meditating on Psalms 91, Making a prayer of protection and preservation and Raising right hand and declaring “Oh Lord protect me,” seven times.
Since the inception of 2021, the country has been engulfed with fear and heartbrokenness following escalating cases of covid-19 pandemic which continues taking lives of many people.
