Delta state based cleric, Prophet Jeremiah Omoto Fufeyin, says he wanted to kill himself because of N7,500 debt he owed during his youthful age.
Fufeyin, who is the founder and head prophet of Christ Mercyland Deliverance Ministry (CMDM) in Warri, Delta State, made this revelation in an interview with Punch newspaper.
According to the cleric, the thought of committing suicide came when he thought there was no way he could pay back the debt.
The clergyman, who is one of the top pastors in Nigeria, said the fact that God has changed his situation, shows that “God doesn’t forget His children.”
Prophet Fufeyin thereafter advised everyone to hold onto God whenever they are hopeless.
His words: “I was called by God; I didn’t think I would become a pastor. There was a time I wanted to kill myself because of N7,500 debt that I owed at a time as a young man.
“I was disturbed and I felt killing myself was the best option. If God could bring me out of my former situation and put me where I am today, I advise everyone to hold onto God whenever they are hopeless. God doesn’t forget His children”, he added.
