US visa ban unsettles Pastor Adeboye, intercedes for Nigeria’s restoration 


…Have mercy on Nigeria, he pleads with God
Upset by U.S. visa ban on Nigeria, World renowned cleric and televangelist,
Pastor Enoch Adeboye, is leading the church to intercede for Nigeria for God to restore its glory and its rightful place in the comity of nations.
He spoke against the backdrop of visa restrictions placed on Nigerians and five other countries by the United States.
PerSecondnews reports that the cleric had led his members on a Prayer-walk protest from Ebute Meta to Atan in Lagos against insecurity and insurgency across the country with the beheading of a bishop and Chairman of Christian Association of Nigeria in Adamawa by Boko Haram in January.
Adeboye also directed RCCG nationwide to embark on the protest.
Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) worldwide, said:” We pray for the restoration of our nation; Lord, have mercy on Nigeria.”
 Caling for God’s intervention in the affairs of Nigeria on Sunday during  the church’s monthly Thanksgiving Service at the church’s National Headquarters in Ebute Meta, Lagos, Adeboye declared: “Some countries have banned Nigerians from coming into their territories.
“Let there be peace and security in Nigeria. God sees all things and knows where the terrorists are hiding.
“We pray that God sends His light to Nigeria and expose the evildoers in the country.”
Quoting from the Scriptures (2 Chronicles 7:14), he said: “It is written that if my people who are called by my name can humble themselves and call on me, I will heal their land.”
PerSecondnews recalls that the U.S. had said it would suspend the issuance of visas that can lead to permanent residency for nationals of Nigeria, Eritrea, Kyrgyzstan, and Myanmar.
Also, Sudanese and Tanzanian nationals will no longer be allowed to apply for “diversity visas”, which are available by lottery for applicants from countries with low rates of immigration to the U.S.
