Pastor Temitope Joshua of Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) has
said that he is ready to virtually offer prayer for COVID-19 patients in
isolation centres around the world.
In an announcement posted to Joshua’s YouTube channel, Emmanuel TV, the
cleric called on relevant government and medical authorities to
“organise those who are in isolation” and “arrange how to connect them
to us on Emmanuel TV”.
“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 concluded, calling on all interested parties to contact the
church via their email address email@example.com.
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”.
His testimony was followed days later by a couple of university
lecturers who equally acknowledged receiving healing from the dreaded
virus, replete with medical reports before and after prayers from
Since starting its ‘Interactive Prayer’ – in which online prayer is
offered via video calls – Joshua’s ministry has prayed for COVID-19
patients from around the world including citizens of USA, South Africa,
Dominican Republic, Colombia, Honduras and Cuba.
