Pastor Adeboye, the senior preacher at the Redeemed Christian Church of God, has removed a post containing a prayer that was deemed inappropriate.
The prayer was shared on the RCCG’s X page, where a video showed Pastor Adeboye delivering a special prayer during the 2023 crossover night for his congregants.
However, the prayer caused outrage among social media users as it focused on the upliftment of his members at the expense of their colleagues’ prosperity.
“This time next year, your colleagues will be coming to you for food and refreshment. In every family, there’s someone they call a go-to person; I decree in your family, you’ll be the go-to person,” he stated partly.
The video has since been taken down barely an hour after posting due to the backlash from internet users who condemned the prayer.
