Adeboye revealed that God carried him when he was at the saddest period of his life after he lost his son Dare in May 2021.

He said: “Some of you have heard this before: when I was in the saddest period of my life, with so many questions and I know that even in my deep sorrow some people were still laughing at me, I got a text from one of my daughters.

“All she said was: ‘Daddy, let God carry you. And that put an end to any problem; it ended my sorrows. It renewed my faith.”

Dare, a 40-year-old biological son of the preacher, died on May 4 2021 in Eket, Akwa Ibom where he served as the Assitant Pastor in charge of the region.


He was survived by his wife, Temiloluwa and three daughters.
