God has ordered all so that the whole shall appear to be of grace. Therefore, all boasting is excluded. He that glories must not glory in himself but in the LORD.
A report from Nigeria’s PM News, detailing Nigeria’s Super Eagles Coach Shaibu Amodu’s visit to the The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations and the testimony he shared there, to the glory of God!
Super Eagles coach, Shaibu Amodu says he owes the qualification of his team for the 2010 World Cup to Prophet T. B. Joshua of the Synagogue Church of All Nations.
Amodu, who spoke yesterday at a thanksgiving service in the church yesterday, confessed that but for the timely intervention of T. B. Joshua, his job was already on the line.
According to the coach, who was in the church with some Super Eagles crew members, nobody believed that Nigeria could qualify for the championship..
“At a time, the journey of the Super Eagles to 2010 was on a cliff hanger, as some would call it, and it was only a miracle that would make it work. Some even said it won’t work.
“But as this was going on, I was monitoring what the Ghanaian team was doing in Cairo, Egypt.
“We knew that the team leaders were in constant touch with the man of God,” Amodu said adding that he monitored minute by minute, the Prophet’s declarations and how they came to pass in favour of the Ghanaians.
Coach Amodu said he knew how the man of God intervened in the recent U-17 World Cup, which got the Golden Eaglets a second position, which the nation never thought could happen because of their rough start.
“I have known the man of God for about 10 years now but I ceased contact with him for a while.
“When I called him later he asked me ‘what is wrong with you my friend? You are in this mess and you cannot come and ask for God’s intervention?’
“I came with members of the team as the man of God said he would pray about it, then we – me, Kanu Nwankwor, Peterside Idah – continued bombarding him with calls.”
Amodu said after several calls, Prophet Joshua told them not to be afraid and that the prayer point should be for Tunisia to lose to Mozambique since the Super Eagles were going to defeat Kenya.
“When it was first half, we were down by one and the man of God called Peterside, our press co-ordinator, and told him to ask me not to panic as we would equalize and win. This is a true confession and it came to pass,” he said.
