HAPPENING NOW: Pastor Chris’ Global Day of Prayer
The glorious Christ Embassy event lasts 24 hours and ends on December 2nd at 6 PM GMT+1.
Until now, several of the LoveWorld pastors have been ministering, and viewers have witnessed testimonies from around the world.
At the beginning of the Global Day of Prayer, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome stressed the importance of praying.
“In the presence of God in prayer, your faith rises. It rises to the surface. It rises to the top. What you thought was impossible… When you are in the place of prayer, it suddenly becomes possible to you. Your boldness stands strong,” he said.
“Outside prayer, you will be weak. You will feel weak. You will think weak, but in the presence of the spirit of God in prayer, you are strengthened. Those things that seemed impossible will look cheap to you and be possible,” Pastor Chris Oyakhilome continued.
Three previous Global Days of Prayer
Pastor Chris has hosted three other Global Days of Prayer earlier this year, and LoveWorld members have found great comfort in them during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
The first Global Day of Prayer took place on March 27th and was streamed by three billion online viewers.
On June 26th, Pastor Chris held another Global Day of Prayer where his congregation utilized what they had learned during the months of praying in the spring.
“Today will be even more significant. We will begin, pray now into tomorrow, Saturday. We call it a day of prayer. The first one was to initiate what we wanted to do, and now it is a whole day – 24 hours,” Chris Oyakhilome said at the opening of the prayer day.
During the event, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, Pastor Benny Hinn and other Christ Embassy ministers preached for 24 hours.
Pastor Chris Oyakhilome also emphasized the importance of praying on that day.
“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.
Pastor Chris” “The greatest part of prayer is the answer”
The most recent Global Day of Prayer happened on September 25th and once again attracted billions of viewers online.
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.
More Pastor Chris events on the way
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 do sermons 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 Pastor Chris Oyakhilome on September 26th.
When the current Global Day of Prayer is over, the Christ Embassy still has a lot of events to look forward to in December.
On Sunday, December 6th, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome will present the theme of December, and on Thursday, December 24th, his Christmas Eve Special will take place.
A few days later, the Future Leaders of Africa (FALA) Awards takes place, and on the last day of the year, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome will present the new theme of 2021.
