General Overseer of Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye was at the residence of murdered evangelist Eunice Elisha at 6 am yesterday (Tuesday, July 12) in Kubwa, Abuja, where he met the widower and their seven children.
The respected clergy prayed for the repose of the soul of 42 year old trader killed on Saturday, July 9, while preaching at around 5 am, and the salvation of her killers.
Here are the full prayers as recorded by Punch newspaper:
“Lord, we just want to say thank you. We pray that you will keep this family in your hand, and that you will be with them. We pray you will comfort and defend them. They too will finish well. We are praying that all the perpetrators of this crime will be found. We are not asking for justice, we are only praying that you will save their souls. It will be glorious if they can come and testify that before we were murderers, but now, we are pastors.
“As for these little children, give them wisdom; let them succeed and excel. As for the church, you will comfort us. As a result of what had happened, instead of decrease, increase your church. Stand by them and keep away evil from them.”
