The church members who seem to be making “prophetic declarations”, caught the attention of social media users by praying under the rain. Here is the video below;

This is coming after Kehlani, an American singer made fun of Nigerian prayers, describing them as long, repetitive and verbose. At the start of the video, a voice off the camera, most likely a man’s, asks her to “tell ’em about them Nigerian prayers”.

Kehlani responds, “Yo, they thirty minutes long and it’s a bunch of repetitive (prayers) like…”

She then goes on to mimic the theatrical, vocal prayer sessions associated with revivalist Nigerian Christianity.

“Lord God, Jesus Christ, please, just look over….”, she choruses in a faux Nigerian accent.

  1. Nawaooo for these guys. God will be angry with them if they catch cold. I wonder when we Nigerians will change our low mentality on certain things.

  2. Let us pray just asbJesua taught us. Mot in the rain. Prayer prayer. Is this how Jesus taught us to pray? Tbis phrasaic way.

  3. The way and manner Christian pray especially In Nigeria as if they are fighting with God, Jesus in the book of Matthew taught us how to pray and i advice we follow his footsteps because he is the great example ever.

  4. people should learn how to mind their business. People can pray for as long as they deem fit.May God answer their prayers as I’m sure they must be having some serious challenges that led them to pray under the rain and receive blessings

  5. This here is one of the reason must people don’t go to church, because Christianity has just become a religious activity, leaving out the mean reason or purpose which is Christ like behaviour.

  6. God will hear and answer their prayer and to you Kehlani mocking Nigerian prayers, God answers us despite our style so its ok

  7. May God answer our prayers Amen
    Akwaibom had their first year like two weeks ago… All the same your faith will work for you all
