Mrs Mercy Cherono, a Kenyan Olympic athlete came to The SCOAN as advised by her husband to seek the face of God for deliverance and career breakthrough. Mercy is a renowned long-distance runner who represented her nation and came fourth in the 5000m event at the 2016 Rio Olympics in Brazil. During her visit to The SCOAN, Prophet T.B. Joshua prophesied that she and her husband were having problems in their marriage and asked where her husband was. She explained that her husband was back home in Kenya pursuing a political career and confirmed the prophecy.
Today, Mercy and her husband confirmed the words of prophesy from Prophet T.B. Joshua, stating that even though their marriage was only four months old, the success of the marriage was threatened by anger, fighting and a premarital controversy. Ever before they were married, Mercy’s family was deeply concerned because Mr Cherono had fathered a child with another woman and continued to receive phone calls from the woman. This was very difficult for Mercy but against all odds, they married.
Besides her marital problems, Mercy also explained how she had experienced setbacks in her career as an Olympic athlete. She would train hard for every competition but would be sidelined by injury and the pain which would restrict her tremendously. Before the Olympic games, she developed a stress fracture and had to take a lot of pain medication. She was afraid to tell people about the pain in fear that they would withdraw her from the team. She competed and ran with the severe pain but could not run to her full capabilities.
The previous week, as Prophet T.B. Joshua prayed for her, an evil spirit manifested, confessing that it was the cause of her injuries and setback. She was set free and today, testified that her marriage and everything about her has changed for the better.
Mr Cherono had watched his wife’s deliverance last week on Emmanuel TV and decided to come to The SCOAN, confirming that there were a lot of arguments in the young marriage. As a politician and businessman, he would receive many visitors at home which he said made his wife unhappy. After the visits, there would be arguments and anger and 2 to 3 days of silence between husband and wife.
He appreciated God for the deliverance and requested God’s wisdom and counsel concerning his political career.
Truly, the right knowledge of God settles peace.
