The fifth edition of the powerful Global Day of Prayer with the man of God, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, the first for the ‘Year of Preparation’, took to the airwaves on Friday the 26th March. This marks the one-year anniversary of the first Global Day of Prayer.
The first Global Day of Prayer was the entry point of the prayer programs on the 27th of March last year. It was the largest gathering of people praying and reached over three billion people of the LoveWorld Nation, from all corners of the world. Facing the concerning state of the world, during the coronavirus pandemic, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome was joined by Pastor Benny Hinn, the esteemed American televangelist in California. Pastor Chris initiated the week of fasting and praying which was then extended several times due to its enormous and unprecedented success. These sessions brought great illumination, understanding of God’s Word, and untold blessings to billions of viewers from around the world.

With LoveWorld President, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, leading the prayer procession, the global impact has been phenomenal. It has steered economic recoveries in several nations, frustrated the acts of evildoers, emboldened leaders to stand for what is right, instantiated divine healings, and the salvation of numerous souls across the globe.
Characterized by worship and praises to God, segments of exhortations, and earnest prayers led by senior ministers in the LoveWorld nation as well as notable partnering ministries, the event was uplifting and enlightening.
Pastor Chris Oyakhilome prophesized saying: “The Word of the Lord has gone forth, the Spirit of God has enabled His servant, the Spirit of the Lord has sent forth Angels and here is the Word of the Lord. There is no defeat to the kingdom, for you belong to my kingdom says the Lord. I raised you for this hour, for this moment, for this time. I am with you, have no fear, no evil shall befall you because I am with you and I will lead you from Glory to Glory like I have said to you. Be Strengthened, be encouraged in my Word says the Lord for I am with you.”
As one united force, we are exercising our God-given authority in prayer and making dynamic changes every day ahead of the Global Day of Prayer.
“We don’t have authority over our loved ones but we have authority over the demons that blind them,” Pastor Benny Hinn declared, “When we take our priesthood seriously we are vested with that authority that God gives us as priests, to intercede for others and now we are able to prepare an ark of safety for individuals just like Noah.”
Pastor Chris concurred saying: “Let your wisdom come from the Word of God, not from anywhere else. Be truthful to Christ Jesus. Don’t try to have it both ways. The world and then God. The time is short.”
Previous Global Days of Prayer with Pastor Chris
Previous phases of this special prayer program have already yielded tremendous results, against the devastating impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. People from all over the world have attested to miracles in their personal health conditions, families, the economy of their nations as well as an upward surge in their walk in Christ, all of which are consequent on the earlier editions of the Global Day of Prayer. It is as the man of God, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome said, ‘We are ushering in a new world order through our prayers’. We need to unite in the power of prayer to effect change around the world.
The prayer sessions are all about making power available and restraining the power of man to control this world with evil and violence. Pastor Chris explained that “we are praying and fasting to regain our rights which are consistent with the bill of rights and also we are praying against the decrees of darkness to force us to live in a world of the beast before his time.” The man of God called on ministers of the Gospel and the saints of God from all around the world, both old and young alike, to latch on to this special prayer and fasting program, ensuring that God’s will concerning the earth materializes. He emphasized that it is the responsibility of the Church to invite God’s supernatural intervention in the earth, stating that “this might be our only chance to make the necessary difference.”
“Here is time to establish the earth and celebrate the Name of the Lord in the Nations of the World. Jesus is depending on you to win for your city, state, and country. We have angels attending to us, waiting to take action, and as we Pray and make Decrees, they’ll move into our cities, states, and nations and make changes.”
“Listen, the Churches of God are God’s pillar of truth; they are God’s light and minister to the nations! We cannot allow the stoppage of churches; the frustration of churches, they are God’s witnesses of salvation to the ends of the Earth.” – Pastor Chris Oyakhilome.
Harnessing the Power of Prayer
Pastor Benny has often praised Pastor Chris’s ability to witness and harness the power that is in God’s word in the past. As one of the outstanding teachers of our time, Benny Hinn knows that when we are part of his Ministry, we will have miracles, healing, salvation, and uncommon blessings. In an interview a few years ago, Pastor Benny felt compelled to share his awe at the humanitarian work Pastor Chris does on behalf of the sick, oppressed, and disheartened souls. His messages are poignant and passionate.
“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 said at the very first Global Day of Prayer, held exactly a year ago, and still valid to this day.
