Kirk Franklin Flies To Houston & Forgives Ailing Father He Never Knew

Kirk Franklin Forgives Father

Gospel singer Kirk Franklin has said that he has freed his father in his mind after 47 years of harbouring ill feelings towards him.

On Sunday, September 16, 2018, the 12-time Grammy awards winner shared the reason for letting go of the ill feeling via his Facebook.

Kirk Franklin narrated how he spent his life hating his father for giving him up for adoption. Franklin’s mother was only 15 when she had him. While considering abortion, her aunt intervened and ended up raising the talented artist as her own.

As a result, Franklin, who says he “never knew” his father, spent his entire life hating his dad. This changed when he heard about his dad’s ill health.

He writes:

“So…..Two days ago, I received an anonymous call that my biological father, who I never knew, has 3–6 months to live. I’ve lived my entire life hating this man. He and my biological mother gave me up for adoption, and it left me never feeling good enough….to this very day. I took my hate for him and used it as fuel to be the best father I could be for my own.”

The 48-year-old musician goes on to say that his faith helped him fly out to Houston to forgive his father in person.

But what I did wrong, is I never took that fuel, and turn it into forgiveness… and that is wrong. Wrong for him, me, and the God I proclaim to represent. How can I preach what I don’t practice. So I flew to Houston yesterday to do that. It’s painful, it’s a process, but how disappointed I would be in myself for this man to leave this earth without being forgiven. He deserves to receive what God gives me every day.”

He acknowledges how difficult forgiveness can be writing, “Pray for him, and for me. God this is hard…I weep as I write.”

Apostle Suleman Says 2019 Election Will Not Hold Unless Nigerians Pray

2019 ElectionApostle Johnson Suleman has prophesied that unless Nigerians pray for the country, the 2019 election will not hold.

The Senior Pastor of the Omega Fire Ministries Worldwide (OFM), in a chat with journalists in his church, prophesied about the 2019 Election saying:

“Tell Nigerians who wish to see democracy sustained, to pray for our leaders and work for peace; tell the leaders too to pray and be honest with the people they are serving, otherwise, elections may not hold in Nigeria in 2019. That is what God has shown me.”

Apostle Suleman has been credited for many precise prophecies made in years past.

The self-acclaimed ‘Oracle of God’ is the first pastor in Nigeria that prophesied in a December 2013 prophecy, the crowning of former Central Bank of Nigeria’s governor, Alhaji Lamido Sanusi Lamido, as Emir of Kano.

He equally foresaw the death of a serving cabinet member in Nigeria and asked for special prayer during a church service in January 2015.

Likewise, during his ministry’s ‘Fire and Miracle Night’ programme in August 2015, the servant of God foretold the trouble in the last Kogi State governorship election that brought in Governor Yahaya Bello and warned of ‘a death’.

Also, as Edo State prepared for the September 10th 2016 governorship election, Apostle Suleman at a church service said he did not see the election holding on the appointed date.

Subsequently, the INEC shifted the election to September 28 2016, citing security challenges.

“I see presidents being removed in Africa and presidents being installed”, the man of God declared in his 2016 prophecies.

In that declaration, Suleman also asked for vigilance as he said he saw kidnappers entering school, adding that “President Buhari’s health needed serious attention; that America and China would have major crisis.”
