Pastor Chris announces new Global Day of Prayer
The highly anticipated event will take place from Friday, June 25th at 6 PM GMT+1 and go on for 24 hours.
The Global Day of Prayer, which is the first of its kind since March, can be streamed on all LoveWorld networks.
When Pastor Chris Oyakhilome held his most recent Global Day of Prayer, he rekindled the beginning of the prayer sessions.
“A year ago, precisely on the 27th of the month of March, 2020, Pastor Benny Hinn and I led a global prayer meeting because we realized that what was happening in the world, and nations had been seized, gripped with fear and did not know where to turn,” he said and continued:
“They had no idea what was going on. Families were afraid, men and women were afraid, children were afraid, governments were afraid, and some government leaders called it an unknown enemy. They said, ‘how can we fight this unknown enemy?’ Well, at the time when we called for that prayer program, ministers around the world joined us by the millions,” Pastor Chris Oyakhilome explained.
“God’s people all over the world joined us from so many churches and ministries around the world, including groups that often did not speak to each other, but there was a unity of spirit that we all experienced. 27th of March 2020. And because we prayed, the spirit of God gave us guidance,” he underlined.
More than a year of global prayers with Pastor Chris
Last year, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome hosted four Global Days of Prayer that all proved to be incredibly popular and gathered lots of online viewers from all over the globe.
The first session was streamed by three billion people and also featured Pastor Benny Hinn.
The two ministers prayed against the coronavirus, which they continued to do throughout the year.
On June 26th, 2020, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome 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,” Pastor 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.
“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.
Another Global Day of Prayer followed on September 25th and once again attracted billions of viewers online. The last one of 2020 was held in December.
