Pastor Chris launches Global Prayer and Fasting program
To conclude the third phase of the third season of “Your LoveWorld with Pastor Chris,” the Christ Embassy president has announced three days of Global Prayer and Fasting.
The three days will take place from Saturday, May 1st to Monday, May 3rd, and that is all that Pastor Chris Oyakhilome has revealed so far.
The program will collide with his Global Communion Service for May, which will take place on Sunday, May 2nd.
Over the past year, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome has been doing a large number of online events involving prayer and fasting.
It all started in March 2020, when he and Pastor Benny Hinn held a Global Day of Prayer against the coronavirus, which spread rapidly around the world at the time.
Pastor Chris: “God intended to answer”
On June 26th, 2020, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome hosted 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.
The importance of prayer
Another Global Day of Prayer followed on September 25th.
Pastor Deola Phillips kicked off the 24-hour session by welcoming the many global viewers and by leading the first prayers.
Afterward, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome arrived and led the congregation to sing the song “Able God.”
Pastor Chris 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.
Pastor Chris invites ministers from around the globe
During the Global Day of Prayer in September 2020, 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.
The final Global Day of Prayer
Pastor Chris Oyakhilome’s held a fourth Global Day of Prayer from December 1st to December 2nd, 2020.
Several of the LoveWorld pastors ministered, and viewers 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.
Between the pastor’s many Global Days of Prayer, he has hosted multiple prayer weeks called “Your LoveWorld with Pastor Chris.” So far, around 100 episodes have been produced.
The most recent Global Day of Prayer was held on March 26th, 2021. You can watch a video from it below.
