Billions join Pastor Chris’ Global Day of Prayer
On Friday, September 25th, another Global Day of Prayer by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome saw the light of the day.
Like the previous ones, this prayer day was extremely successful and gathered billions of online viewers from all over the world.
Pastor Deola Phillips kicked off the 24-hour session by welcoming the many global viewers and by leading the first prayers.
Afterward, Pastor Chris arrived and led the congregation to sing the song “Able God.”
Chris Oyakhilome then urged the participants to make the most of the special time of prayer.
“The greatest part of prayer is not the prayer itself. It is the answer. We have not had a great prayer program except we have had a great answer. It is God’s response that truly matters,” he said.
“Irrespective of what we have said… It does not matter what we shouted. It does not matter what we sang. It does not matter what we asked for if He did not answer. If He did not respond. It meant nothing. What He told us… He will always hear us. He told us that we have His ear. Every time we pray, we have God’s ear,” Pastor Chris Oyakhilome continued.
Lots of guest prayers
During the Global Day of Prayer, Pastor Benny Hinn, the evangelist Eddy Owase, Reverend Ken Oyakhilome, Pastor T.T. Edun, Pastor Ambrose Isesele, Pastor Ose Oyakhilome, Pastor Linda Okocha and Pastor Lanre Alabi also led prayers.
The LoveWorld Nation had, likewise, invited partnering ministers from Zimbabwe, Switzerland, Madagascar, the Netherlands, Ghana, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, Ghana, Lebanon, the United States, the United Kingdom, South Africa, Burkina Faso and Hungary to say prayers during the live broadcast.
Prayers were made for the church, the governments all over the globe, economic sectors, the spread of the Gospel, the salvation of souls and for young people and children.
The special day also contained several musical elements.
It all climaxed with a powerful message from Chris Oyakhilome on Saturday, September 26th.
New Global Day of Prayer announced
Toward the end of the prayer session, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome announced another Global Day of Prayer, which will take place from December 1st to December 2nd. It is the fourth of its kind.
The first one was broadcast at the end of March with Pastor Benny Hinn. The two ministers prayed against the coronavirus, which had just gotten a serious grip on the world at the time.
Believers from far and near tuned in, as three billion people watched the broadcast.
In June, the Month of Prayer, the Christ Embassy president hosted another Global Day of Prayer and stressed the importance of praying.
“The reason why He invited us to pray is because He intended to answer. Jesus taught us how to pray. From the scriptures, we learn about prayer. Prayer by the prophets, prayer by the apostles of Jesus. Prayer is not a sign of weakness. Prayer is our faith talking to God,” he said.
