Pastor Chris’ Global Day of Prayer is two weeks away
On December 1st, a 24-hour Global Day of Prayer kicks off and lasts until December 2nd. The sermon will be available for streaming on all LoveWorld networks.
Christ Embassy members are expecting miracles and prayers in abundance at the event which previously has yielded positive results.
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.
During the show, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome and his longtime friend Pastor Benny Hinn prayed against the coronavirus which was spreading rapidly across the globe at the time.
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 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.
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.
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.
Lots of events during the Month of Praise
There is, indeed, a lot going on in the LoveWorld community during this Month of Praise.
At the moment, Christ Embassy believers from all over the world are gathered in Lagos, Nigeria for the International Pastors’ and Partners Conference.
During the week-long program, which ends on Sunday, November 22nd, the congregation gets the opportunity to gather inspiration for their ministering in the upcoming year through lessons and workshops by Pastor Chris and the LoveWorld Ministry.
It is not only the International Pastors’ and Partners’ Conference that is happening this week, though. Several other annual LoveWorld events are on the program too.
The International Media Connectors’ Conference just rounded off after having highlighted the importance of praying and spreading the Gospel through social media and technology.
Billions of people around the world have gotten access to Pastor Chris Oyakhilome’s messages, teachings and sermons through the internet.
The International Teens Pastor & Leaders’ Conference is concluding today, Wednesday, November 18th. It gathered youth pastors from all over the world on a spiritual journey to “discover and fulfill their purpose.”
The week will end with the LoveWorld International Music & Arts Awards (LIMA) on Sunday, November 22nd where LoveWorld musicians will be celebrated and rewarded for their important work.
