Buoyed by the "Holy Spirit", Alec opened the car door and went charging towards the lions. Upon seeing the man running towards them, the lions could not believed that manna was coming straight from heaven and instead ran towards the prophet.

Witnesses say Prophet was lucky that the game ranger who was near fired some shots with his gun to scare the lion away.

The injury was very severe that Alec had to be rushed to hospital for emergency surgery. The doctors affirmed the severity of the Prophet's case, but assured that he would still have his left bum intact.

Alec was eventually stitched up and discharged after spending the night in hospital.

This is not the first time a rather outrageous test of faith of this nature has been practiced in Africa.
