Pastor Enoch Adeboye has revealed how the power of prayer foiled a Riot planned by some members of a secret cult while he was still lecturing at the University of Lagos.
Another testimony happened at the University of Lagos when he was a lecturer there. He recalled: “When I was stillteaching , I had a small group of students who were very close to me. We used to study the word of God together. And one of the things I told them was this: there is no barrier that prayer cannot break down.
“One day they heard that a secret cult in the university was planning for rioting – their plan was to burn down the bookshop and everything they could lay their hands on. They had already bought petrol and other destructive tools needed for the attack.
“A member of my group then said, “Daddy has gone home now, what are we going to do?”
“Another answered, “But he taught us that whenever there is trouble, we should pray. He is not God, God is here.”
“So, they locked themselves in a room and started praying.
“Meanwhile the cult members had also gathered themselves together waiting for midnight to strike. While they were drinking ogogoro (local gin) to get themselves charged, the children of God were praying.
“Then the cult members fell asleep. By the time they woke up, it was day-break. With their plans foiled, they started querying their leader. They asked what kind of leader he was to be sleeping on duty.
“The leader spat back, “What kind of assistants are you? You were supposed to help me.”
“This resulted in a fight. They threw away the petrol in the process. That was the end of the riot.”
