Only if you know how many alters
I have raised for God
Only if you know who my son is
Before he was conceived God knew him
May death visit your full generation
Any gathering that is not of the lord
They shall scatter
You evil spirit may you drink your own blood and eat your own flesh
Any coven that my name and my sons’ name has been mentioned
Holy Ghost fire destroy you all
In the sea
In the air, in a native doctor’s shrine
Oku monso gbagbuogi
Be destroyed and removed from the surface
Of the earth,
Since you wish my son death
May your generation be closed
My sons are the future president of this country
My son breathes with the life of christ
He died when God died
God himself gave him that life
He shall not die
He will continue to make me and the world proud Amen,
No peace for the wicked
Any witch hovering around
Blood sucking demon
Die now in Jesus mighty name Amen
I am untouchable
The lord lives in me, my son, my household
Is covered with the blood of Jesus Amen.
