It has emerged that the revered Prophet TB Joshua, the spiritual head of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN)predicted the Paris attack in January 2013 which France needs to pray fervently to avoid.

In a video posted on his Facebook wall on November 15, 2015 during a live service at the Synagogue Church of All Nations on Sunday 19th January 2013, Prophet T.B. Joshua said "France as a nation, there is a strange thing they have to pray about which is in their country now. There are some strange people; they have strategic places in France.

"They should pray against suicide bombers or an attack of any kind that will affect many. Take care of your homeland security. This is France, this time."

In condolence to the victims who were affected in the night of terror, Prophet TB Joshua said, "We pray for the families and loved ones of all those affected by this tragedy in the nation of France.

"May God strengthen them that their hearts may rise and seek the things above that they may be comforted under the present sorrow."

About 129 people  have been killed in a terrorist attack experts say were coordinated in the French city of Paris Friday night.

The attack took place in six places almost at the same time.

France has declared a national state of emergency and has closed its borders.

Reports say eight of the gunmen who carried out the attacks are dead.
