Missouri prevents potential armed robbery in church

During a Sunday service, Pastor Marquaello Futrell, a former St. Louis police officer turned pastor, noticed four masked men with guns in their waistbands enter All Creation Northview Holiness Family Church in Ferguson, Missouri. Using his policing instincts and the power of prayer, he prevented what he believed to be a potential armed robbery.

He had his media team train the cameras on the suspects, directed staff members to lock the doors and call the police. The pastor then interrogated the men over the church’s microphone, and through a series of prayers, convinced them to stay seated while the congregation prayed for them, ultimately keeping everyone safe.

After spotting the suspicious-looking foursome, the pastor approached where the group was sitting and began interrogating them over the church’s microphone.

‘Don’t you play with me – I still got a cop anointing, and I still know what’s going on and what’s about to happen. God is about to change the plot of the enemy.

Lift your voices and shout unto God for what he’s about to do!’ Futrell said. He then got members of his congregation to surround the men and pray for them.

The men were in the church for 20 minutes before they left. The pastor’s instincts had been right all along: they have indeed wanted men, and the police are still searching for them. Speaking on Fox News, Futrell said he realized early on that something wasn’t quite right with the group.

‘We believe that they were intending to rob us, do some harm, but we believe that God is the greatest power and we cannot be defeated so I had those instincts. I engaged them and we prayed for them, and they knew that they were being recorded.’

The pastor said that his worshippers were thankful for him being able to navigate through what was an extremely delicate situation. ‘A lot of people didn’t know what was going on. Many did, and we had our children’s ministry on lockdown, and so many of the congregants were just thankful those able to navigate them through that process with the help of the Holy Spirit, the Holy Ghost,’ Futrell said.
