The General Overseer of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), Pastor Temitope (TB) Joshua, had on Wednesday, called on government and medical authorities around the world to connect COVID-19 patients to Emmanuel TV for healing, through virtual prayers.
This was contained in an announcement posted on Joshua’s YouTube channel, Emmanuel TV.
According to the cleric, “The blessing of Jesus is for those who knock and ask,” he said in the announcement, adding: “In whatever way you support to make this happen, we are a team; we are not doing more than you.”
“Together, we shall pray for them. Together we shall be set free from this COVID-19,” the statement continued, quoting the Biblical reference in Luke 4:40, where Jesus healed “all who had various kinds of sickness after the mass prayer”.
“The same anointing that heals one is also able to heal all at the same time,” it added, calling on all interested parties to contact the church via their email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
Just last week, the World Health Organisation reacted to a trending video in which a Cameroonian medical doctor was ‘healed’ from COVID-19 after receiving “interactive prayer” from Joshua’s ministry, acknowledging “spiritual leadership is very important in a time like this”.
