A member of the Nigeria Christian Pilgrim Commission (NCPC) Spirituality Committee for this year’s general pilgrimage to Israel, Pastor Peter Ogbe, has prayed for all-round transformations for Nigeria during the on-going general pilgrimage in Israel.
Ogbe, the senior pastor of the True Believers Missionary Church Incorporated Nigeria, Abuja, prayed variously at the Lake of Galilee, the Church of Jesus at Tabgha and the Mount of Beatitudes.
This was contained in a statement issued in Israel and sent to Blueprint Friday by the Commission’s head of media, Celestine Toruka, an assistant director.
According to the statement, the cleric prayed that “henceforth Nigeria as a nation will begin to experience increase in her development goals since Jesus in this land multiplied bread (five loaves and two fishes) to feed 5, 000 men besides women and children and the left-overs were 12 baskets full.”
“This was a display of God’s abundance to the nation Israel. Nigerian pilgrims will return home to experience God’s abundance. God in His infinite mercies will remove the label on Nigeria as the poverty capital of the world to a glorious Nigeria where everyone will be proud and Nigeria will take its rightful place in the comity of nations economically and politically,” he prayed.
Pastor Ogbe thumbed up NCPC in its “effective organisation of this year’s pilgrimage exercise.”
It would be recalled that NCPC flagged off this year’s general pilgrimage to Israel on December 01, in Lagos.
