Two days left until Pastor Chris’ Global Day of Prayer
Pastor Chris Oyakhilome’s third Global Day of Prayer of the Year of Preparation is approaching. From Friday, September 24th at 6 PM GMT+1 and 24 hours onwards, the Christ Embassy president will pray for the nations of the world with Pastor Benny Hinn.
At the end of August, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome revealed during the “Your LoveWorld Praise-A-Thon” that a new Global Day of Prayer would take place in September.
In March 2020, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome initiated the first Global Day of Prayer. He marked that by hosting another one in March 2021.
“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,” Pastor Chris Oyakhilome said in March 2021.
“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,” he stated and added:
“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.”
Pastor Chris Oyakhilome began praying for the nations of the world in March 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
A year of prayers with Pastor Chris
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.
