UNLIMITED GREATNESS 6th of August, 2004
Once upon a time there was a boy, hated by his brothers, ignored by his parents, with very, very little hope in the world …. that he can ever become great. But one day he took a decision that in spite of everything he will praise the Lord. He said, "My heart is fixed within me, I will praise the Lord!" and God answered from heaven, "Son, my own heart is also fixed within me, I will make you exceedingly great," (Amen!) That boy is David but there is another boy, another girl, here tonight , boy compared to God, who is saying, my heart is fixed within me, I will praise the Lord. And God is going to reply, is ready to reply that His own heart is also fixed, to make you exceedingly great. If you are that boy, if you are that girl, if you are that man, that woman, for 2 minutes praise God in a way that He will know that your heart is fixed within you..
Go ahead talk to the Almighty God! Say Lord, my heart is fixed within me! I will praise you! I will magnify Your Holy Name! I will praise You all the days of my life! I will do your Will!

Thank You for those You will heal. Thank You for those You will set free. Glory be to Your Holy Name Lord! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Let somebody shout 'Alleluia!' (Alleluia!)
Now I want you to shake hands with at least 7 people and say, "Welcome to a time of miracles." Glory be to God! God Bless you! You may be seated!
Now, last year they were already pregnant but we said we will wait till the babies arrive. Now the babies have arrived. (Amen!). Then last year some came trusting God for the fruit of the womb. Their own babies too have arrived. Now I want all those children to be brought forward for special blessing. If you came 2 years ago, believing God for children and the children are now here and you came last year and the children have arrived, now begin to bring those children, we want to pray for them.
Now we can see the rivers that are still flowing – rivers of babies still flowing. I just want to announce to those of you that have blocked the road because I'm told that the roads are blocked solid – al the way to the Holy Ghost Arena, so if you are anywhere blocked on the road, don't worry, the blessing will reach your children there. (Amen!) Let somebody shout 'Alleluia!' (Alleluia!) When I see people like you, it makes me happy that I am serving the Lord. When I see all the homes where there will be no more weeping every month, I just want to dance because my Lord is good. Let me hear you shout Alleluia! one more time. Glory be to God! .. Nobody will bother to count…. there are too many to count. But how many twins do we have? Maybe we can ….. ah there are almost too many to be counted! .. Lets see, just in case, just in case…. is any one with a triplet? …….. Alleluia! triplets? Come forward,. come forward! So we can use you as a point of contact for the rest. Come to the stage. Glory be to God! Congratulations. So is it one boy? All 3 are girls? So you are going to have 3 son-in-laws! Wow! Glory be to God!
Will you please stretch your hands towards these countless children – all those who love children, all those w ho love children stretch your hands towards all these children and bless them. Please pray for them, that the Almighty God will bless these children, bless their parents, keep sickness away from them, keep death away from them, keep demons away from them and make them vessels unto honour in His hands. That God will provide for their parents, bless them from the bottom of your hearts. Thank You Father! Glory be to Your Name Lord! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Father, on behalf of these countless families I say Thank You! Thank You for answered prayers. Thank You for wiping away the tears from the eyes of Your children. Glory be to Your Holy Name Lord!
Father, I'm using these ones that are on the altar as a point of contact for all of these Your children: lay Your mighty hands on them; bless them, (Amen!) protect them (Amen!), prosper them (Amen!), let our joy over them last forever (Amen!) Keep sickness away from them (Amen!) Keep demons away from them, (Amen!) Let them grow up to become vessels unto honour in your hands. (Amen!) Provide for their parents. (Amen!) And let their joy forever be full! (Amen!) Thank You my Father.
Father, all those who are trusting You for the fruit of the womb, by this time next year let them bring their own children also (Amen!) Thank You Father! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!) Let somebody shout 'Alleluia!' (Alleluia!) Well, you will dance back now……….
….. I like this! I love children! That's probably why the Almighty God has given me the anointing to bring many of them into the world. For those who are trusting God for the fruit of the womb, September Holy Ghost Service is your special month (Amen!) Because of the crowd there's no way we could lay hands on you today but September, even though we will continue our series on the Journey to Greatness before we pray for anyone else in September we'll pray for all those of you who are trusting God for the fruit of the womb. In any case some of you will already be pregnant before you come. (Amen!) This time next year in Jesus' Name you will also be lifting up your own children to the Lord. (Amen!)
On 8th October, by the grace of God, there'll be a special Holy Ghost Service in Abuja. You are all cordially invited. And then on the 12th November, by the special grace of God there will be Holy Ghost Service in Ibadan. We'll be talking about the God of Elijah. It's going to be a very powerful Holy Ghost Service . The Holy Ghost Congress of this year is from 13th to 18th December and we'll be discussing the Master Keys, so get ready for a very beautiful last months of the year. I want to remind all our covenant partners that by now we should be hearing from you. The Lord will continue to prosper you. I've been informed that Pastor Warren Beeman from San Antonio is in the house. Wherever you are seated brother God bless you, you are most welcome. Maybe by tomorrow you'll be able to bring greetings to the people.
At this time of the year, we normally give a brief report of what God has done in the past one year. On the physical side the Almighty God has helped us to develop this camp seriously. We were able to build 28 dormitories. We were able to build 364 1-bedroom suites. We were also by the grace of God able to extend this auditorium as you can see. We were able to build a new children's kitchen and dining hall. We have been able to build a new maternity centre. We have been able to sink 8 new boreholes. We have been able to construct the new ring road which makes it very easy to get out of here. We have been able to complete the Pastor's lodge and we have been able to tar quite a bit of our roads.
On the spiritual aspect, the past year in Nigeria alone we have been establishing an average of 4 churches per day. If we take the rest of the nations of the world into account, the average will be little more than 5 per day. New nations of the world had joined the Redeemed family include Fiji Islands, Guinea Conakry and by the grace of God we have become the first Pentecostal church to be registered in Portugal. (Amen!) Keep on praying for us. There is still a lot of work to be done. If you look at the crowd, sitting on the roads. Every road, all the way to the Congress Arena there, you will know that if we double this auditorium it still will not take all of them. And by this time next year in Jesus' Name we will be more than double.
So pray to God… what will you want me to do to help this work, so that the work of God will not slow down. And please, keep on praying for me as the work is increasing, that God will increase my strength and anointing. there was a time when travelling by plane was a pleasure, when it was once a year. But now when I have to do it almost every week it has become almost a burden. Many a times when I wake up in a strange room, I won't even know the way to the toilet because yesterday the hotel where I stayed the door to the toilet is to the left, today it is right. So pray for strength and we haven't started – we are going to cover the whole world. How many of you will say 'Amen' to that?
Now very quickly, Luke 1:34-37 Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?  And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.  And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren.  For with God nothing shall be impossible.
Please turn to your neighbour and say, My own will not be impossible with God. Turn to the fellow on the other side and say, "I know my own will not be impossible with God!" When we talk about unlimited greatness many of us will look at ourselves and say, how can it be? How can I, an ordinary messenger become the President of a nation? Ask Joshua he will tell you that with God nothing shall be impossible. How can I, an unknown little boy, suddenly become very great? Ask David, he will tell you for with God nothing shall be impossible. How can I, a little girl, with no helper at all? And I will say, "Ask Esther and she will tell you for with God nothing shall be impossible." How can somebody who is considered barren, suddenly become the mother of a triplet? I will say, "Ask those who have just been here. They will tell you for with God nothing shall be impossible." I want to decree to you today. Every impossibility in your life shall become possible! (Amen!)
Now when we talk about doing the impossible there are certain things that must be in place for the impossible to become possible. The first one is called authority. A police man no matter how strong, cannot stop a trailer that is running full speed along the expressway. But if he stands and he raises up his hand. Whether the driver likes it or not that trailer must stop because the policeman has authority. By what authority can God make the impossible, possible in your life?
God said in Jeremiah 32:27 He said, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me? He said the authority by which I can make the impossible, possible in your life is because I am the God of all flesh. That's why all He has to do is raise up His hand and suddenly the impossible in your life, will become possible. That's why I have good news for somebody here today, because you came tonight all those things you considered impossible will be your testimony next month. I'm not sure you heard what I said. I said those things you consider impossible today, by next Holy Ghost Service, they will be your testimonies! (Amen!)
Not only did He have the authority, His own authority is the supreme one – Psalm 91:1 calls Him the Most High. Genesis 18:25 calls Him the Judge of the whole earth! That's why Psalm 33:8-9 says Let the whole earth fear before him because He spake and it was done. he is the supreme judge of the whole earth. All He has to do is speak and it is done.
In the month of May I was in the East to dedicate some of our churches. As I was entering into one of the churches, God spoke to me and I repeated what He said. I said there is someone here who will never weep again and there was a man there who had had stroke. He heard the word. He said 'Amen'. Within 5 minutes every trace of stroke disappeared from his body.. (Amen!) On behalf of my Father, I am saying the same thing tonight, there is somebody here tonight who will never weep again! (Amen!)
God has authority, supreme authority. The Bible says He does as He pleases but He said He will have mercy on whom He will have mercy. That's why you find in John 5….
The Lord said, that I've said it to someone here before, and He says I am repeating what I have said, He said, I will break the back of those w ho want to break your back. (Amen!) In John 5:1-9
Thank You Father! The Lord is healing someone and He said, there had been some rumblings inside your throat and it is gone now. (Amen!)
O Thank You Father! The Lord says there is someone here, those who are laying siege on you, those who are laying siege, God said I will cause them to hear a noise. (Amen!)
O Thank You Father! The Lord said there is someone here for some time now, there's a constant noise like rainfall in your head. And he said, maybe you didn't notice but the noise has disappeared.
Jesus came to the pool of Bethesda. Several people were there who were sick but He picked only one, who had been there for 38 years and He healed the man! And as soon as He finished healing that one He left the place. If I had the opportunity, I will say, "Sir, why did you do that, there are several others?" And I'm sure His answer would have been, I am the most high. I do what I please.. that I show mercy to whom I will show mercy. Somebody is going to receive mercy here tonight. If you are the one let me hear you shout Alleluia! (Alleluia!)
So the first thing you need to make the impossible possible is authority. The second thing is power. The policeman has the authority to arrest robbers. But if the policeman finds some people robbing and they have guns and the policeman has no gun, if he likes himself, he won't even talk, he will dodge because even though he has the authority, he hasn't got the power. But thank God, my God has not only authority He also has power! The Bible says in Psalm 62:11 God has spoken once, twice have I heard it that power belongs to God. Not only has He power, the Bible says He has all power! Psalm 91:1 calls Him the Almighty, the One who has all power. That's why He said to Sarah, I know you are 90 years old but the One talking to you is the One who has all power! I have good news for somebody here today! This very day the power of God will be manifested in your life!. I've told you the story before…
Thank You Father! The Lord said there is someone here, He said tonight the garment of shame has left you. (Amen!)
Thank You Almighty God!
I was travelling to Ilesha and I got to Ife. I saw a car parked, the bonnet was up and I saw one of my daughters standing by so I stopped: What's wrong with your car? She said, What is wrong with the car is not the problem, it's God who sent you. I said, What's the problem? She said, the baby in my womb has not moved for several days. The doctor said the baby is dead and I was just thinking, do I allow them to evacuate or not? And now you are here. Just lay your hand on that stomach, speak the word of power! So I lay my hand on her stomach. I said Baby come back to life! And immediately, immediately, the baby began to move again. That child graduated from the University last year. (Amen!) It is in the name of Jesus I'm speaking to you today. I am speaking the word of power! Every good thing in your life, that the enemy had killed, I command that they should come back to life! I say I command that they come back to life. (Amen!)
Not only has He power, He has supreme power, supreme power. In Daniel 3:19-29
Thank You Father! The Lord said there's someone here, He said that opportunity that you thought was lost forever, because my servant has spoken, it shall be restored to you. (Amen!)
He has supreme power. In Daniel 3:19-29, Nebuchadnezzar said to Shedrach, Meshach and Abednego, I'm going to throw you into the fiery furnace …. who is that God who will deliver you out of my hands? By the time God finished with him, he said, I surrender. Every force, every power that had been working against your greatness, they will surrender to God tonight. (Amen!)
Those who are older members, they will remember this story. We went to start a branch of the church in Ago Iwoye. There was one juju man there who said, not in this town. So he came to the crusade ground with his pocket loaded with charms and he had charmed alligator peppers that if he could just spray it on the people, everybody will catch smallpox. The preaching was going on. He put his hand into his pocket to bring out the charms and the hand got stuck. He pulled his hand, the hand refused to come out. When they gave the altar call he was the first one to run forward. All the powers of the enemy shall be swallowed by the power of my God.(Amen!)
The third thing that is needed to make the impossible possible is abundant wealth. Tremendous resources. If you ask the policeman to chase some robbers and arrest them and they are on motorcycles and he is on foot, you know what will be the result. But if the policeman has a helicopter, walkie-talkies, vehicles…. then wherever the culprits are trying to hide he will be able to get them and arrest them. Somebody was asking when they made the announcement that there is no need to go across the road to go and buy food that there is plenty of food for everybody on the Camp here. He said, How much do they pay for the food here? They said, No, no, no! During the Convention, the food is free! He said, Impossible! How can you say that all these people will eat free?
There are several things you want to do that today sound impossible but because the One whose name is Jehovah El-Shaddai is going to provide for you, every impossibility in your life will become possible in Jesus' Name! (Amen!)
Not only can He feed 5,000 with five loaves and 2 fishes, part of His wealth is your spare parts. If there is any part of your body that is not functioning well, we can ask God for spare parts. He has them! He has a store! Can somebody born blind ever see? With man this is impossible but with God all things are possible! Will a man with one leg ever get 2 legs again? With man that is impossible. But with God all things are possible!
Let me remind you of one or two stories quickly, just to let you know that there is no impossibility with God.
Thank You Father! The Lord said there is someone here – pus mixed with blood has been coming out of your ears. The Lord asked me to tell you to check, it has already dried up.
And the Lord said there is someone here, he said your greatest reproach will soon become your greatest testimony. (Amen!)
A boy was born with only one testicle. The parents, in an attempt to help him took him to a herbalist who destroyed the only one. The boy grew up. I don't know what was wrong with him but he went ahead and married. Of course you know the result of the marriage – no children. Then we held a programme at Rowe Park. I think it was 1985 and this young man came there and the power of God hit him. Suddenly he got 2 brand new testicles. The day he cam e to share his testimony with me in my office, the wife was about 6 months pregnant. So when he said he wanted to show me, I said, There's no need, I can see the evidence! Everything the devil has stolen from you shall be fully restored today in Jesus' name! (Amen!)
So God has authority. He has the power. He has the resources to make every impossibility in your life possible. He could ask the sun to stand still because He wants to perform a miracle in somebody's life and I'm sure He's going to do that for somebody here in Jesus' Name! (Amen!) He can ask the sun to go back because He wants to perform a miracle in somebody's life. At least you remember the story of the woman who had not menstruated for almost 10 years and she came to the Holy Ghost Service in London and 2 words came to her one after the other. Number one God said He was subtracting 10 years from the life of somebody…
O Thank You my Father. The Lord said there's a woman here, you have had premature menopause. The Lord asked me to tell you, not only is He restoring your menses, get ready for a set of twins – one girl, one boy. Please next year when you bring your children remind me so we can hear your testimony….
Oh Thank You Father! I know this will be a special night.
God said there is someone here, some people have been blocking your way. he asked me to tell you, you will overtake them and surpass them.
So there was this woman who came to the Holy Ghost Service in London….. Ahhh I want to preach but Daddy is saying something…
The Lord said there is someone here, there is one more tear that you are going to shed and it will be the tear of joy! (Amen!)
Anyway so this woman lost 10 years and almost immediately God spoke again and said there is someone here that the doctors say can never have a baby – get ready for your baby! And nine months later the lady came with her baby. Every impossibility in your life shall become possible in Jesus' Name! (Amen!)
Now not only has God got everything to make the impossible possible, He is completely unlimited. You cannot limit Him by age, because His name is 'I AM'. Not 'I WAS'. Not 'I WILL BE' but 'I AM'. The Bible calls Him the ever-present help in times of trouble. The Bible says from everlasting to everlasting you are God. He is not limited by accident. You will never hear God say circumstances beyond my control didn't allow me to do what I wanted to do! What circumstances? Where are they coming from? Nothing happens without Him knowing about it before it happens! And He knows the end from the beginning. He is not limited by time or seasons. In John 2:1-11 …
The Lord says there is a family here, a star is going to rise in your family! (Amen!)
I don't know who this fellow is but the Lord says there is a fire burbing in your private part. The Lord asked me to tell you, He has put out the fire. (Amen!)
John 2 1-11. The wedding in Cana. They ran out of wine and then the mother of Jesus came to Him and Jesus said, its not time for miracles yet. . But within one hour, the time for miracles had come. He said, Its not yet time! But it became time. For somebody here your time is now! If you believe that you better say 'Amen!' (Amen!)
Thank You Father! The Lord says I should tell someone, He said the shakings in your place of work will soon subside. (Amen!)
Still talking about this God who can do the impossible, there is one beautiful thing about Him. He is unchangeable: Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever. Meaning what? Whatever He has done before, He will do again. If you have ever heard a testimony similar to the case you are having now, in the mighty Name of Jesus Christ, your own will be the next testimony. (Amen!)
I know there are some women trusting God for the fruit of the womb and they watched those people bringing in the triplets, saying deep within them, "How I wish I was the one.." You will be the next one! (Amen!)
Not only is He unchangeable, He is no respecter of persons: whatever He has done for A, He will do for B. There is no reason why He won't do your own. That is why I say, tell your neighbour, tell him one more time – "My own will not be impossible with God! He has done that of others, He will do my own too." Thank You Father!
The Lord said I should say to somebody, He said your progress had been unusually slow. He said to tell you – things will change from tonight. (Amen!)
So we know with God nothing is impossible because He has the authority, He has the power, He has the resources. He is unlimited by age. He is unlimited by time and seasons. He's unlimited by accident or circumstances! And He is constant and He is no respecter of persons. So what do I do so that this God who can do the impossible will do my own? Because I've told you in the past months that information tells you what is available but you have to go a little bit beyond information. You need to move on to revelation. It is revelation that would show you what you must do to get your own part of what is available.
What do I do? What do I do so that the God of impossibilities will make my impossibilities possible? 3 things.
Number one – believe. Just believe. In Mark 9:23 it said, if thou can believe all things – how many things? – all things are possible to him that believeth. If you check the Scriptures again and again, you will find that those people who received a miracle from God, they claimed it by faith. The woman with the issue of blood. Jesus said, "Daughter, thy faith had made thee whole." Bartimaeus, Jesus said, "Go, thy faith had made thee whole." It was then his eyes opened! If only you believe all things are possible to him who believes.
Maybe I just tell you one or two stories. We will be praying now…. Some of you who are old ones you already heard the story before.
I went to Port Harcourt and one man drove me around all the time I was there, with a very big Mercedes Benz car. When they brought me back to the airport for my departure, I can't give money to somebody with this big car but I want to give something so I gave him some money. I said, "Please give this to your child." He took the money and began to say 'Amen! Amen! Amen!" And I was surprised. What's wrong? So I asked the Pastor. "Why is he saying say 'Amen! Amen! Amen!" The Pastor said, "He has no child." I said, "Good!" The following year I was back in Port Harcourt! The same man was at the airport to receive me and as I came out of the plane I saw him carrying a gift in his hand. He said, "Sir, this is from my son! Sir, this is from my son!" I said, "Give to your child." He believed. That very month the wife conceived. 9 months later the first baby boy came!
I'm saying to somebody here today, I say every impossibility in your life will become possible! (Amen!) Your 'Amen!' is too casual. (Amen!)
That is one example. I will give you another example that some of you already know too. It was December 31. We were having the Eve programme and the Word of God came, just as it has been coming to you again and again tonight. And I said, there is someone here who is even having problem paying his house rent. I said in the New Year you will be a landlord! only one messenger in the congregation said 'Amen! (Amen!) which was humanly impossible for him. But he believed God. He believed that any word coming from the mouth of the servant of the Most High shall come to pass. How it's going to happen, he didn't know. But he believed.
The following week, he went to work and went to greet the Chairman, as usual, prostrating, greeting and the Chairman looked at him and said, "By the way, have I given you any Xmas or New Year present?" He said, "No sir." He said, "Well the Lagos State government was selling some house. I paid for one. I got one, I don't need it – take it!" And he gave him the address, gave him the keys. He got there, opened the door, he entered. He looked up and down – "This is my house. So I'm now a landlord?" I don't know how God will do your own but after this Convention, get ready for greatness! (Amen!) I say get ready for greatness! (Amen!)
So he came back to the Chairman. This time he was rolling on the ground. So the Chairman said, "By the way – is there any furniture in the house?" "No sir." The Chairman said. "I change my furniture every Xmas so the one I used last year, I don't know where to put it yet so tell so-and-so to take a truck and take the furniture to your house." He was a messenger but he was sitting on the Chairman's kind of furniture! Your own testimony will shake the world (Amen!)
If you believe….
Number 2 You must be determined to obey him. Isaiah 1:19 It says if you are willing and obedient you will eat the good of the land. If you are willing …. looking at the faces of you and the way some of you have been jumping up and catching the prophecies I know you are willing! But are you willing also to be obedient? when He asks you to witness will you witness? When He asks you to study the Bible will you study? When He asks you to give, will you give? How did you hear about the Holy Ghost Service? Somebody told you. Will you tell others? If you are willing and obedient you will eat the good of the land. The grace to be obedient, receive it now in Jesus' Name! (Amen!)
Finally - pray. First one believe. Second one obey. Third one pray.
In John 14:14 It says if you ask anything in my name I will do it. If you ask what? I didn't hear you? Some things? It said if you ask anything. Let me tell you the truth. When God says 'anything', He means 'anything'. How great you will become will be determined by how much you are willing to ask for! And there is nothing you can ask for that is too much – nothing! I know! There's nothing you can ask that is too much.
There are some people who think that the Redeemed Christian Church of God is already … ohh , you are already great!!!! You are doing well! And I tell them: ah-ah we haven't started! Ah-ah what's wrong with you… God asked me to ask for anything: In all towns and villages in the whole world, five minutes distance from one another there's going to be a branch of the Redeemed Christian Church of God whether the devil likes it or not. Whether Iraq likes it or Libya does not want it, as long as my God is on His throne and He said, if I ask, if I ask anything, in His Name, that it will be done – that's already settled!
Are you ready to pray? I can't hear your answer? I say are you ready to pray? Because if you ask not you will have not. If you want to keep on suffering it's your own choice. I will tell you just one more story and then we pray. Some of you have heard it before.
We went to Ghana. I was coming back. My children have seen me off at the airport. I've emptied my pocket to them because there'll be a car waiting for me in Nigeria. After my children left Ghana Airways announced that the plane that was supposed to take us to Nigeria will first of all take those going to Sierra Leone before it will come back to pick us. Ahhh! What am I going to do. I was hungry. I wasn't fasting. There's no money in my pocket. After some time, it occurred to me that if I suffer it is because I want to suffer. I have a weapon so I issued a decree. I said, "Father, in the mighty name of Jesus, the officials of Ghana Airways will know no peace until I leave here - in Jesus name I ask it." Five minutes later all the top ogas, the top ogas, came rushing to the what-do-you-call-it, where you sit down before you board the plane. "Where are those of you going to Nigeria, I said we are here? Has anybody given you anything to eat?" I said, "No." They said, "We have no food except cakes." Ahhh! half bread is better than nothing. So they gave us a slice of cake each and a bottle of coke. Because I was hungry the thing disappeared quickly and all of a sudden their leader looked at me and said, "You want more?" I said, "Yes." He said, "There's only one slice of cake left." He gave it to me and another bottle of coke and I sent the two down quick! Suddenly they announced: Those of you going to Nigeria, you will go first! I said, "Uhh-uhh, now you want to rest!"
Today you are going to pray. Part of your prayers should be, whatever will not let me reach my goal, Father destroy! Let us stand on our feet. Let me first of all hear you shout a big Alleluia! (Alleluia!) and then open your mouth, - You are going to open your mouth and pray but before you pray, now those who were carried in, just move them a little forward from where they are seated because the senior Pastors will come and minister to them now. The rest of us we're going to be praying. we are not going to make you a spectacle. So just move them a little forward from where they are seated. That's enough! That's enough! That's enough! Just move forward a little. Today is your day too. If only you can believe. Please brethren, the senior Pastors, just about a dozen or so of them, so you please go and minister to them.
The rest of us let's lift our voice to the Almighty God and say, Father, whatever will not let me reach my goal, destroy it tonight in Jesus Name Open your mouth and pray! …….. Blessed be Your Holy Name! In Jesus mighty Name we have prayed! (Amen!)

Well let's give the Lord a big round of applause….. I hope there are still enough Pastors there ministering to those people. You may need to give them a second touch to make sure that their miracle is complete. Now it is our custom after a wonderful night like this to say thank you to Jesus. How many of you will love to say thank you to Jesus? So we are going to give our thanksgiving offering to the Almighty.
Father, 8 is the number of resurrection. It's the number of new beginning. All these your children, give them a new beginning of joy! (Amen!) Give them a new beginning of success! (Amen!) Give them a new beginning of success! (Amen!) Give them new miracles. Give them new testimonies! Give them new breakthroughs! Give them new anointing! Give them new desire to serve you!

Finally, there are always some people we can pray that special prayer for. … it seems to be everybody again: Father , in the mighty name of Jesus (Amen!) You said it would be unto us according to our faith. These people believe that their seed must be a special prayer for them. Now as I'm praying Father, let it be to them according to their faith in Jesus' Name! (Amen!) Whatever it is they need that will make their joy full, give unto them in Jesus' Name! (Amen!) grant their request today in Jesus' Name! (Amen!). very soon let them be full of testimonies (Amen!) Father, bless the offerings of Your children.
