Leah Sharibu: TB Joshua calls for three days prayer, fasting

Lagos – Representatives of Chibok in Borno and Dapchi in Yobe on Sunday sought spiritual help at The Synagogue, the Church of All Nations, at Ikotun-Egbe, Lagos to pray for the release of Leah Sharibu and other students kidnapped by Boko Haram.

The representatives who carried several placards told the General Overseer, Prophet Temitope Joshua, that they were at The Synagogue because they had exhausted all human efforts to get the students released.

A spokesman of the representatives told Prophet Joshua that the father of Leah Sharibu could not come with them because he had been bedridden by stroke, as a result of the kidnap of her daughter.

He said they had been watching his ministry through Emmanuel Television (the church’s cable TV) and all the help he had rendered to the sick and the less privileged, hence their joint visit to plead for intercessory prayers for the release of the students.

The spokesman said they had no doubt that with the approval of Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God could trigger the release of the remaining students kidnapped in 2014 and 2018.

Prophet Joshua told them that there was nothing impossible in the sight of the Creator of Heaven and Earth.

He urged the congregation and viewers of Emmanuel Television worldwide to pray and fast on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, this week, for the release of the remaining students.

He said that “there is nothing God cannot do” and urged all to see the prayer and fasting on the mentioned days as an assignment.

Some of the placards read: Please intercede on our behalf for the release of Leah Sharibu; The remaining 112 students kidnapped in Chibok are yet to be released, please help, among others.

On April 14, 2014, 276 female students were kidnapped from the Government Secondary School, Chibok in Borno State.

Responsibility for the kidnappings was claimed by Boko Haram, an extremist terrorist organization based in northeastern Nigeria.

Since 2014, 164 of the students had regained their freedom, while 112 are still held by Boko Haram.

Also on Feb. 19, 2018, no fewer than 110 schoolgirls were kidnapped by the Boko Haram terrorist group from the Government Girls’ Science and Technical College (GGSTC), Dapchi, located in Bulabulin, Yunusari Local Government area of Yobe State.

One hundred and nine of the students were released, except Leah Sharibu, who was said to have refused to denounce Christianity. (NAN)

T.B. JOSHUA’S MESSAGE ON THE ABDUCTED SCHOOL GIRLS

Here is what Prophet T.B. Joshua said on Sunday 27th April 2014 concerning the abducted schoolgirls in Borno State, Nigeria:

“They have to be released. That is the voice of God. I saw a vision where some of these girls have escaped and they are trying to find their way from the forest to the town. In the midnight, some of these girls ran away. The ones that are still under their custody – God said He will release them. This is the voice of God. God has spoken – these children must be released. We can’t wait to see them. God has marked them that nothing should happen.

“The family members of the abducted schoolgirls – your pain is our pain. I learnt many of the parents are in the bush. Please come back home. It is not your battle alone but the battle of all people of God all over the world. They are also our children.

“We are in a spiritual battle. God has promised all of them will come out free, without harm and hurt. However, if there is unnecessary confrontation, it may affect them. I want to tell our security men that they should take it easy. They should not go with full force because it will bounce back on these children. Let us be prayerful and at the same time be tactical and strategic, so they will not harm our dear schoolgirls. Their captors are in a place where they cannot move forward or backwards. Confrontation is dangerous. The security men should be very careful in their strategy and approach.

“Almost half of these girls have escaped and are inside the bush. Our prayer is safety for these little ones. Let them come out! We can’t wait to see them! I was expecting “Breaking News” last Thursday that almost half of them escaped. It was the shooting of our security men they heard that scared them. They are afraid the shooting is from the militants, not knowing our security forces were coming to rescue them. They have stopped their journey and are hanging somewhere. God is in control!

“Lift up your voice and pray for the protection of these girls. Remember our security forces too in prayer. Ask God to give them more wisdom and a clean and clear strategy, so that their approach will not be attack for attack. No matter what the militants do, even if they attack, they should not attack back in order not to harm our girls. On Tuesday, be in an attitude of prayer. With God, all things are possible.” ‪#‎TBJoshua‬ ‪#‎BringBackOurGirls‬
