TB Joshua was speaking on Tuesday as part of his meeting with President Salva Kiir at the State House of the capital, Juba.
“The time has come for us to put our differences behind us,” Joshua said in his television public service (SSBC) broadcast.
“It’s the voice of God. Our leaders must overcome their divisions and agree to work together for the good of the country, “ he added.
Last week, President Kiir and opposition leader Riek Machar agreed to delay the peace agreement by 100 days. Both parties postponed the deadline in tripartite talks organized by Uganda, a guarantor of the peace agreement.
The Nigerian prophet also reminded South Sudanese leaders that “peace is priceless”.
“The problem of this nation is spiritual. We must tackle it spiritually. If I’m a prophet, it will not happen without accomplishment, “ he added.
“Have pity on the nation. May the leaders and citizens of this country obtain your mercy. Thank you for your compassion and forgiveness, “ he pleaded with God in his prayer for South Sudan.
President Salva Kiir said he was happy with the visit of the Prophet, adding that this marks a new beginning for the country.
“We have come a long way in search of peace. Now that the man of God, the prophet TB Joshua, has arrived in South Sudan, I believe that peace is no longer very far, “ he said.
