General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye has commenced the construction of a billion naira project he has tagged ‘Prayer Garden’ in the Redemption Camp along Lagos – Ibadan Expressway.
Encomium reports that the garden would sit on the newly acquired 25 acres along Simawa Road, Redemption Camp.
Confirming the report, a member of the governing council, who is also a regional evangelist in the mission, Pastor David said, “One of the pillars on which the RCCG is built is prayer and that God has blessed the mission with a leader who does not only talk about praying but leads in praying. As people come to the Prayer Garden, they will encounter God, they will obtain mercy and find help. “
He explained that there will be two prayer cubicles, each of which will have capacity for about 80 people pouring their heart out to God at the same time.
He further said that the topography of the Garden will be maximized to create a prayer mountain for climbers.
“The cubicles are there, then the prayer mountain. There will also be a big hall with capacity for about 7000 people. This hall will be used for services and joint prayers. We are going to have chalets where those who come to pray can rest”, he explained.
He said that the annual pre-convention camping of ministers slated for ordination will now be done in the Garden when concluded. “We will have prayers and counselling, telephone prayer and counselling facilities will also be available.
”The general benefit in creating the Prayer Garden is that when people go there, like what we had in the old Shiloh, they can pour out their hearts to God…We want to also create an avenue where our ordained can gather to seek the face of the Lord because, up to this moment, they normally go out somewhere to pray.
”There is going to be what we call prayer path which will be used for prayer walk. We will also have all books ever written on prayers from all over the world in the library for people to read and to buy from the bookstore.
”By the time all the buildings which we are trusting God to put in place for us within a year or two would be on ground, then we are going to start what we refer to as Redemption School of Prayers, where people are going to be trained to pray. We are also going to have the Redemption School of Deliverance. These two schools will be established”. He disclosed in a recent interview with Encomium.
