The Founding Bishop of the Living Faith Church Worldwide, David Oyedepo stated that the declining cases of COVID-19 in Nigeria is as a result of churches that were re-opened across the country.
The Presiding Bishop of Living Faith Worldwide made his claims at the church’s Covenant Hour of Prayer, (CHOP), as he used Lagos and Ogun States as case study for his assertion, saying that COVID-19 had continued to decrease due to re-opening of churches.
Churches in Lagos were re-opened on 9th of August, while those in Ogun State were re-opened on 16th of August, 2020.
Reacting to the claims that when churches were re-opened, there would be rise in Coronavirus, the clergyman said;
“I’ve never seen where people think like that. The Church is ordained a solution centre for the world. This data is a clear evidence that the Church has the solution; when we pray, God hears.
“Thank God for the prayers we pray in the house; there is a prayer we pray in the Temple where the fire comes from Heaven and consumes the sacrifice. That’s why we are here. Jesus is Lord.
“The same way, my God will level out every everlasting mountain standing before your life. You can’t be at the base of Liberation and be a victim of captivity. From now, they will start recording zero, zero, zero cases of coronavirus”.
