Prophet T. B Joshua has urged everyone especially his congregation at the Synagogue Church of All Nations (Scoan) to pray against the interruption of Nigeria’s democracy. Speaking recently during the service held at the church’s premises in Ikotun, Lagos State, said he had been disturbed in his spirit about the country’s democracy.
According to him, God had shown him several times that Nigeria may not enjoy democracy for long if prayers are not offered to counter it. He urged the congregation to offer prayers for President Muhammadu Buhari as the country heads to the polls in February. Nigeria will have its election at both the federal and state levels with tension mounting that the exercise might not be fair.

Prophet T.B. Joshua of the Synagogue Church of Nations, SCOAN, has labelled 2019 as “very fearful.” He also said there may be interruption of democracy in the year 2019. In a Youtube video, Joshua said he saw this while praying at an undisclosed ‘prayer mountain.’ He started by saying, “I am here because I know where I need to grow. When we know where we need to grow, it is victory itself.” The prophet said he was there “to know the mind of God concerning this fearful year 2019 and also to pray for you and the world at large.” He called on Nigerians to pray against “a stopover” and “the interruption of the democratic practice” as Nigeria prepares for the elections next month, February 2019.
He said, “I like being one with nature – where there are no disturbances, where we don’t need to close our eyes to pray,” he explained, indicating he had been in prayer and fasting for several days to begin the New Year. I developed this habit right from the beginning of my ministry… When I need a quiet place, I run to the wilderness, to the mountain,” he continued, conspicuously barefooted, simply clad and holding his Bible. He proceeded to offer prayer for his viewers, stating that “whatever hinders you to greatness” would “give way” and “whatever that does not reflect Jesus in your life” would “be removed.”
