According to Alakija, “Man cannot help you, woman cannot help you. Agents of darkness are all around you, they are trying to pull you down, they are the one trying to hinder you, until you know about Jesus, you have been struggling in silence, suffering in silence, the Lord Jesus can stop your struggles.
“All you need to do is to say Lord, I am here, I am ready to be saved, Jesus loves you, he wants to make your life better. He wants to improve your lives, He wants to remove you from the streets.
“He doesn’t want you to continue to beg on the streets, what you are experiencing now is not the will of God for your life. I say come to Jesus, my brother I say come, come and know Jesus. He has dollars ready for you.”
