Renowned City pastor Reverend Lucy Natasha has asked her followers to pray for those in the ministry.
According to Natasha, being a pastor is stressful and sometimes very painful.
Through her Instagram page, Natasha said although the ministry work seems easy, it is not.
"People think being in ministry is easy. It is not. It is stressful, sometimes painful. There is a lot of expectations of being perfect yet they help others with their imperfections. Pray for those in Ministry. Pray for your pastor. Mama Oracle," she wrote.
The flamboyant preacher has many times faced backlash from her followers for various reasons.
A few years ago while receiving her Covid-19 jab on her upper left arm, her followers noticed she had a tattoo emblazoned with the word ‘Oracle’.
The tattoo divided opinion among both believers and nonbelievers, with some even quoting the Bible in condemnation.
“Leviticus 19:28—”Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you”—so as to prohibit tattoos, and perhaps even makeup. This verse will judge you, the word of God is a two-edged sword,” one Twitter user noted.
Others defended Rev Natasha, among them the infamous moral cop, KFCB Boss Ezekiel Mutua.
“Rev. Lucy Natasha, preach on and turn your back to the critics, sceptics and nay sayers. People will always talk tattoo or no tattoo. Shine on for the Lord and reach out to souls. There’s nothing you can do to please everyone!” tweeted Mutua.
Rev Natasha later told off her critics in an indirect post on social media putting the debate to rest.
“One of the hardest struggles you’ll encounter in life is finding the strength and courage to do what God is calling you to do.
Another time she was allegedly accused of hiring the same man to perform different miracles.
