The largest gathering of people praying saw two billion people log on Friday 27th March to the special prayer meeting of the LoveWorld Nation. The prayers, inspiration, and teaching are set to continue every day this week as we have been encouraged to pray and fast alongside Pastor Chris Oyakhilome and Pastor Benny Hinn.
After a rousing prayer, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome welcomed the international participants to the Global Prayer meeting by reminding everyone they were tuned in for a special purpose for the earth. When Pastor Benny came into view it was a joy to behold. This was not a one-off prayer meeting as Pastor Benny revealed that they have been praying for some days.
Oneness of the spirit
Pastor Benny told us that the Church of Jesus must be united and now two billion people joined their private prayer meeting. The world is in total panic and we can only pray. Recalling 2 Chronicles 7:14,
“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
Pastor Benny Hinn thanked Pastor Chris for having the foresight and vision to organize such a meeting. The coronavirus is spreading panic among the nations. The LoveWorld nation is fighting this pandemic with prayer.
Fighting an invisible enemy with prayer
Pastor Chris said they were taking actions to support the governments who are trying to halt the curtail of the advancements of the disease. He asked, “Who are the guns for- the guns of the soldiers who have been deployed in the streets to fight an invisible virus?” Pastor Chris focused our minds on the purpose of our prayers. We are praying to keep the evil back. We pray that we have our faith and hear the word of God.
Ephesians 6:18 “Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;”
Take in the shield of faith that you will be able to quench the fire of the wicked. Pray in the spirit then pray in the understanding. Pray the best way that you know-how.
1 Corinthians 14:14 “For if I pray in an unknown tongue, my spirit prayeth, but my understanding is unfruitful.”
This is the hour of God’s mercy. This is not God’s judgment, so we are sent to pray and preach to the nations. This is the hour of grace. Pastor Chris told us that we Christians are working ahead of Satan and we cannot keep quiet. We are praying and by the blessed name of Jesus, we will stop him. Align your spirit and walk in righteousness.
Be bold in your prayer
“There is faith instead of fear. We thank you for your word and the Church is the advantage of the earth. This is an hour if great harvest as we give you great honor and praise. The name of Jesus is above all names and every country will be in control in the name of Jesus. On the earth, the will of God will be done.” Pastor Lanre Alabi reminded the LoveWorld believers to be strong in these uncertain times. We express our faith with prayer.
Pray for your country
Quoting I Timothy 2 Pastor Chris drove our prayers forward.” urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession, and thanksgiving be made for all people for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.”
Bring the power of the blood of Jesus and what he did at Calvary. Jesus is authority. After praying in tongues Pastor Benny asked for the virus to die and by Easter, something will happen and breakthrough.
Keep praying and being united in our fight against this virus
Our world is framed by the words of the prophets. Pastor Chris invited the global family to fast and pray for seven days. Brethren are invited to fast and pray from 6 am to 6 pm. Indicate that you are going to be fasting. There should be an unbroken chain. Pick your moments of prayer. Pick two spots and your name will be fixed at that moment. Pastor Chris said that the more pressure we put the quicker it will be broken. There will be intersession as your prayers concern other people. That is what happens when we pray.
By the official time reached its conclusion some three billion people had united in prayers. The follow-up prayers are equally important. Let us keep united in our prayers and we shall prevail.
