Popular singer, Davido made the news yesterday when he shared a prayer line on social media, and Freeze has compared that prayer to that of Pastor Adeboye.
Davido’s words were, “I declare into your life! Where you ought to be highly placed,you will not be replaced there. Your seat of glory will not be empty. You will sit gloriously to eat the fruit of your labour. Your land will not fail to bear fruits in its season.”
However, reacting recently, Cool FM OAP, Daddy Freeze said Davido’s prayer is more viable than that of General Overseer, Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, who also shared a prayer on social media around the same time.
Pastor Adeboye simply prayed for the suspension of protocols, rules and criteria for the promotion of Nigerians with these words, “Father, let all protocols, rules and criteria be suspended, overlooked and overruled, as you did to Joseph, in order for me to be promoted, in Jesus name.”
Comparing both prayers, Freeze wrote, “This as a prayer by Davido is 1 million times more Christian than Adeboye’s prayer and in line with true Christianity, which preaches faith combined with works. A true Christian should therefore say AMEN to Davido’s prayer and GOD FORBID to Adeboye’s prayer for Nigeria to move forward as a nation”
