How Oyedepo prayed for me at Shiloh to become minister — Beta Edu
Miss Beta Edu, the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation, has revealed how the General Overseer of the Living Faith Church Worldwide, Bishop David Oyedepo, prayed for her to become a minister in the country.
Edu said that Oyedepo prayed for her after she expressed ambition to become a minister at the church’s annual programme, Shiloh, in 2022.
She disclosed this while speaking at the ongoing Shiloh 2023 held in Ota, Ogun State, on Friday, December 8.
Edu said, “Church praise the Lord! Praise the Lord!! I came to…my name is Dr. Betta Edu and I came to thank God.
“Last year at Shiloh 2022, I prayed and told God that by the next time I come for the next year’s Shiloh, I want to be a minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
“On the last day of Shiloh, just as I was walking out, I saw Papa, Bishop David Oyedepo, and I went to greet him and meet him as usual and I whispered to him, ‘Papa, I need you to pray for me. I have just one prayer request now’. And he said, ‘What is it?’ I said, ‘I want to come back to Shiloh 2023 as a minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria’. He put his hand on my head and he said, ‘It is done’. I stood up and I left.
“I came today to return all glory to God that inspite of all odds, today I’m a minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. One of the youngest in the Fourth Republic.
“People my age, are not at the Federal Executive Council of Nigeria in this Fourth Republic. But today, I can boldly stand here to say, ‘God did it’. I came to return all glory to God.”
