Retired footballer and leading presidential candidate in Liberia, George Weah, on Sunday, visited the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) in Ikotun, Lagos, Nigeria to seek the spiritual support of the founder of the church, TB Joshua.
It is understood that the prominent Liberian Senator attended the Church service in Lagos, yesterday to “seek God’s face” for his nation.
During his sermon which was broadcast live on popular Christian channel Emmanuel TV, Mr. Joshua warmly welcomed Mr. Weah and spoke directly to him.
“My brother is here today because he loves his country and wants God’s choice for his country,” Mr. Joshua said, adding that “He is not here to impose himself. What does God say about his country, Liberia? What is God’s opinion? That is why he is here.”
The cleric went further to reiterate that he was not favouring any particular side of the political spectrum but his own role was to pray for “the will of God” to be done in the nation of Liberia.
“We are not herbalists or witch-doctors; we are people of God. God’s choice is our choice. We cannot pray against God’s will,” Joshua stressed, while Weah nodding firmly in agreement.
The cleric continued: “Without God’s corresponding power, we cannot pray to Him. For every step we take – every movement and action – intimation comes first.”
“There must be a suggestion from the Spirit to move before we move. If truly I am a man of God, I must hear from God – move or don’t move.”
“God’s opinion is what we should seek in our country – simple! God is the Answer, the Final.”
The presidential run-off election between Weah and the country’s incumbent Vice President, Joseph Boakai, is scheduled to hold on November 7, 2017.
