Speaking to his congregants on Sunday, the prophet also released more prophecies breaking his silence on the tensions currently engulfing Nigeria in the wake of Buhari’s prolonged absence on his medical leave in the United Kingdom. He said;
“I have some burning issues which I want to share with you. Your president has good intentions. Good intentions cannot be carried out alone without good followers.
“The priority of every Nigerian citizen now is the good health of your President because it can be anyone’s turn tomorrow. What you wish for others, God makes happen to you.
After praying specifically for “strength where there is weakness,” T.B Joshua called on his on congregants to rise up in prayer for President Muhammadu Buhari. The prophet also offered a profound prayer for Nigeria’s democracy.
Calling for prayers for an uninterrupted democracy, he said it is important for Nigerians to rise up and pray for God to give us the grace to sustain democracy.
Re-echoing his December 2015 prophecy about the devaluation of the Nigerian currency and a widespread scarcity of food, Prophet Joshua said the Naira would reach a ratio of 650 to one US Dollar in the black market before it stabilizes “if the system agrees with Divine will.” He added that these issues would continue to plague the country until June.
Addressing the political crisis engulfing the Democratic Republic of Congo, T.B Joshua stated that he turned down an invitation from President Joseph Kabila several years earlier to visit the nation as he was “waiting for a revelation from God.”
Recalling that he sent a delegation in his stead with a message warning the Congolese government of an impending crisis, Joshua said; “Pray for God’s intervention in DRC because I am seeing trouble coming – a big trouble.”
He further called on the congregation to pray for parts of Southern Africa affected by natural disasters and against an impending famine in Ethiopia.
Joshua described the bane of the African political sphere as the pursuit of good leaders as opposed to good institutions. According to him, many African leaders chose cabinet members based on their hefty campaign contributions, as opposed to their qualities and loyalty, a trend that has led many Presidents to be frustrated during their stints in office. He said;
“That someone gives you money does not mean they are your friend. Your enemy can even establish you in a big way for reasons known to him. Why should those in the same political party be fighting themselves?”
Joshua said the lack of right people around a leader has led to the downfall of both businesses and churches. The prophet decried the attitude of blaming a country’s government for an individual’s woes, stating that the main challenge was that “the world is running out of ideas.
