Ancient of days we worship You. The One who is higher than the highest be thou exalted.

The One who is more powerful and the Most powerful we bow before You.

The Unchangeable changer, glory be to Your holy name.

Accept our worship in Jesus’ name.

Accept our worship in Jesus’ name.

Tonight, Your children are here just to praise You; as we do so Lord, that kind of victory we never dreamt possible give to us in Jesus’ name.

Victory over sickness, victory over disease, victory over barrenness, victory over poverty, victory over lack, victory over bondage, victory over sorrow, victory over hopelessness, give to us in Jesus’ name.

As we praise You tonight Father, have mercy on us; have mercy on our family; have mercy on Your church; have mercy on Nigeria.

Please Lord God Almighty, by the time we leave here in the morning, put a new song in our mouth.

Let this month be the month of breakthroughs.

Thank You Almighty God.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Amen.

Let somebody shout hallelujah.

Shake hands with two or three people and say this month will be very very successful for you.

And then you may please be seated.

God bless you.

When you look at everything God created, He created them for one thing and for one thing only: to give Him pleasure.

Birds sing to Him.

The Bible says, even the tree clap their hands.

Now, I will share this one with you; don’t worry my sermon won’t be long, my children have taken all the time which is the way I want it to be.

A night is coming now, when they will just finish like this and I will come and I will just say hey! do you have any prayer request? And you will pray your prayer request and I will agree with you and we will be on our way. That will be a great day.

Because I too want to come, seat down and just enjoy God instead having to preach.

So, one night I was working, there is highway somewhere in Lagos State, and I was working by the beach at night praying.

And suddenly I ask this question in my mind.

You know the Ocean is always coming up, slapping the beach, going back, and as it is proceeding, another wave is coming to hit the beach.

And I said God, why is the sea so restless?

You know there are question you can ask your God when you are alone with Him.

And Daddy said to me: the sea is clapping.

And when we ask you to clap…

Come on, put your hands together for the One who created you; the One who created you.

Thank You Father.

And so let us put our hands together for all the wonderful people who had minister tonight.

Let us give God glory for these wonderful children.

God bless you all.

Amen.

Now, as to be expected, many of these children have been preaching as if they saw my note. Thank God for God that He told me in advance some of the things some of them will be preaching so that I can dodge.

So, I will not read the whole text since some of them had already done the reading.

Acts 16 from verse 25 to the end – it had been read to you.

Paul and Silas were in prison, at mid-night they began to sing and to praise God and suddenly there was an earthquake and prison doors were opened; every one bonds was loose; the Jailer came and bow down to these people who are praising God.

The Jailer got converted with his entire house and so on and so forth.

So, I am going to just give you very briefly an outline of a sermon; I believe God will add the flesh; but you must be ready to pray.

No matter how brief our time, we are here to pray.

There are seven types of victory

How many types?

I cannot hear you

You are not writing with your mouth: how many types?

Number One: Victory after Defeat.

In Joshua chapter 7 verse 1 to 12: Joshua decides to go to war without God. The result is a terrible defeat.

But he was wise enough to fall on his face before God and say, I have made a mistake; I should have consulted You before going to battle. I should not have gone without You.

And God said alright – you have restituted your ways, we will go together now; and God thought him what to do.

And by the time you get to Joshua chapter 8 from verse 1 to the end: the one who defeated them, who defeated Israel before became completely wiped out.

I am praying for somebody here tonight that God will change your defeat to victory.

When you go to war without God on your side, you are heading for defeat.

But the moment you invite God in, into your defeat, He will turn the defeat to victory.

I will quickly remind you of a story of one of my daughters; married with four children and the husband packed out of the house to go and live with a woman with five children.

Some of you know the testimony.

It was at that stage she came.

Daddy, I fought for my husband; but this strange woman defeated me, taken over my husband.

Now! I need God’s help.

And I told her, when we invite God in now, that husband of yours will come to beg.

She said, no no no, I am not asking him to come and beg, I will beg him to come back – just anything to get him back.

I said no, don’t worry; let us talk to God.

We talked to the Almighty God.

I told her, God will start quarrel between your husband and the strange woman.

And I believe I am speaking to someone here already.

You better don’t say yes too loud so that people won’t know you are the one.

So, we prayed.

And not long after that there was a quarrel between her husband and the strange woman.

And the strange woman said to the husband: don’t you know that your head is not correct; because if you head is correct, how can you leave your wife with four children, to come and stay with a woman with five children and none of the children is yours.

The man said, I think you are right.

So, he packed his load; came back home; knocked at the door; and when the wife open the door, he prostrated and said please take me back.

The wife said you are welcome.

When you invite God into your defeat, He will change into victory.

Stand on your feet.

You are going to cry to the Almighty God now and say: Father, this very night, change all my defeats to victory.

Go ahead talk to the Almighty God.

Every defeat in my life, this very night my Father and my God change it to victory. Have I been defeated in my place of work, change it to victory. Have I been defeated in my marriage, change to victory Daddy. Have I been defeated spiritually, change it to victory. Any form of defeat in my life, change it to victory Lord, change it to victory tonight. Any form of defeat, change it to victory. And Lord, You know that there are areas in my life where I have been defeated, please Lord God Almighty change my defeat to victory.

Thank You Jesus.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

So shall it be in Jesus’ name.

Please be seated.

Second type of victory is Victory without a Defeat

This time, you go to war with God on your side; and so, if you get victory without a defeat.

1Samuel 17 verse 34 to 51: David said, I had fought with a lion, I defeated the lion.

I had fought with a bear, I defeated the bear.

I am going to fight Goliath, I will defeat him also.

And he gave us the secret and he said, the Lord that deliver me out of the hand of the lion; that deliver me from the hand of a bear; the same Lord will deliver me from the hand of Goliath.

When you fight with God on your side, with God fighting with you, you will always have victory without a defeat.

I said I will be brief. I will just go quickly over that.

I will give you an example, like I explain to some of you the reason I give this example is that if you don’t believe the stories in the Bible, you think those are the olding days – let me tell you what is happening today.

While I was a lecturer at the University of Lagos, one of my spiritual sons came to me and said, I don’t know what I going to do, my boss in my place of work says: I will never be promoted as long as he is here because I refused to join his secret society.

I say that is no problem.

If he has decided to constitute a mountain in your way, the Bible says we should tell mountain to move.

How many of you want mountain in your life to move tonight?

Anyway we prayed a simple prayer and suddenly, that Boss was transferred; my son was promoted to take his place.

They created a new department in that place of work and brought that Boss back so that the two of them are equal.

He said you won’t be promoted as long as I am here; so, God moved him, did the promotion and brought him back.

I want you to stand on your feet; lift your voice to the Almighty God and say: Father, every mountain blocking my way, let it move tonight, let it move tonight, let it move tonight.

If the mountain is a human being, transfer him. If the mountain is any Law, any Regulation in my place of work, change the regulation, change the rules. Every mountain blocking my way Lord, move it; let it be move tonight, let it be move tonight. Every mountain – physical; every mountain – spiritual; every mountain – marital; every mountain – financial; every mountain blocking my way my Father and my God, tonight, move these mountain. Fight with me Lord and get this mountain out of the way, get the mountain out of the way. Move every mountain Lord, that Your name might be glorify. Let every mountain move, let every mountain move.

Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

So shall it be in Jesus’ name.

Please be seated.

I see that some of you are praying as if you have no mountain; that is great.

May you never have one.

Type three of victory is Victory without a fight.

Deuteronomy 28 verses 1 and 7. The Bible says if you would harken diligently to the voice of the Lord your God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day;

He said then, the enemies that rise up against you will be smitten before your face.

You are not the one who will do the smiting.

He said, they will come against in one way, and they will flee seven ways.

You see, there is a different between God fighting with you and God fight for you.

When God is fighting for you, you don’t have to fight – He does the fighting – you just be watching.

Romans chapter 8:31 says, if God be for us who can be against us.

And my children have referred again and again to 2Chronicles chapter 20 from verse 1 to the end – talked about three kings coming against a very small king: himself, his wife, and his children; the entire nation, his entire Armies, they were so small, they were able to stand before the temple of God - that will tell you how big they are. You we say what kind of Army is that?

They are nations in this world today (laughing); one of the nation were the Redeemed Christian Church of God is register, they have twenty five policemen.

How many policemen?

And they still have a Commissioner of Police.

They have five prisoners as at the time we go there and the prisoners are allowed to go home at weekends.

But they are a nation.

They have head of state recognized by United Nation.

Don’t let me divert; if I tell you some of this things you will really laugh.

But that was how small the Army of Jehoshaphat was and there were three mighty kings.

In a situation like that because people said, how can a king obey God when says put the choir in front.

He has nothing else; as they say in Yoruba land: when the water has reached your neck, you don’t need calash to take your bath.

There are some battles you cannot fight even if you say you want to fight.

But when God is fighting for you, you win without a fight.

I think it was in Turkey that I told my children this story…; by the way, we had a wonderful time in Turkey.

We missed you; it was a pity you could not come.

It was a fantastic time we had.

I told them that in one of the great nations of the world, powerful nations of the world; my children sent to me and say Daddy, we have completed our church building, we want you to please come an dedicate it.

I said okay; and then we agreed on a date; and they began to advertise.

And then one very Senior Government Official, I don’t want to give his title so you don’t begin to guess, heard about it.

For one reason or the other, he got angry.

He said, he had read about The Redeemed Christian Church of God that we said we want a church within five minute distance of one another; he sad this church will not stand in my vicinity.

He said the church will not be dedicated!

He said over his dead body.

So, my children contacted me and said what do we do?

Shall we postpone the date while we think of what to do - I mean this man is very powerful; very rich, very influential?

I said: we do nothing.

Haa! We are thinking of fasting and praying; some of them were suggesting we take him to court that if the court rules against him…;

This man has so much influence, he would silence the Judge.

So, what are we going to do?

I said: nothing.

Do we postpone the day of dedication?

I said no; the day stands.

A week before the date of dedication, he was getting ready to go and attend a meeting where they will decide not to ever open our church.

He got up in the morning to dress; he put his left leg in the left section of the trouser; and for one reason or the other, he put the right leg also in the same trouser.

And while he was struggling to free himself he fell and hit his head against something.

By the time he arrived in the hospital bed, the right leg was still with the left leg in the same trouser section.

Somebody say Daddy you killed him

I said: me! no ooo! I didn’t even pray. I did nothing.

Stand on your feet; and say: Father, fight my battles for me.

Go ahead talk to the Almighty God.

Fight my battles for me Almighty. Fight my battles for me.

Thank You Father.

You are the Lord of host; You have never lost a war, fight my battles for me. Fight my battles for me.

Thank You Father. Thank You Almighty God.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

So shall it be in Jesus’ name.

Please be seated.

I mean, there are battles you can fight; there battles you cannot fight.

If the Doctor tell somebody who has cancer that there is nothing more they can do; haa! you can really hand over the battle to God.

And every one of you facing a battle too big for you, you will get victory tonight in Jesus name.

The forth type of victory is when enemies leave you alone – they just leave you alone.

Like in Psalm 23 verse 5: thou prepareth a table before me in the presence of my enemies.

Let the enemies just leave me alone – let them leave me alone.

Proverbs 16 verse 7 says: when a man’s ways please the God, He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.

That is while praising God is wonderful thing.

When you praise Him, you please Him. And when you  please Him, He tell the enemy, leave this boy alone; can you not see he is praising Me.; can you not see he is praising Me.

Psalm 92 verse 1 says: it is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord, to sing praises unto thy name, O most high.

If I do that good thing which is praising You, then, He says something will happen: my eyes shall see my desire of my enemies – I just want the enemies to leave me alone.

In 2Kings chapter 7 verse 1 to 11 (somebody referred to it among my boys): when there was a siege against a whole city; the Almighty God decided that the best way to lift the siege is to drive the enemies away and the enemies heard a noise.

Now, some of us don’t have big enemies, we only have small once.

Those of you who have small once and you are managing them.

Well! May I say: congratulations!

But I don’t want any enemy at all – small or big.

What about you?

I told you what happen when we first came to this ground.

There were this little little birds; tiny tiny birds and they just bombarded the camp.

They came by the thousands.

By the time they arrived in the morning, if they focus on one tree, by the evening time, there will be no leave left on that tree – they would have turned it to small small net.

And they were all in the place.

Now, you will say why bothered about such.

Oh! If you hear their noise!

So, I said to the Almighty God, please help.

We have some boys here then, they were attending the Bible College, and I was staying in my first wooden house over there.

And one of them had gun

Let the enemies leave me alone, let them leave me alone. Let them leave me alone. Let them leave alone. Let the just leave me alone so that I can face my life without any distraction, without any disturbance, any enemy: small or great, let them leave me alone. Let them leave me alone Father, I want to face my assignment; I want to be able to leave my life in peace. No more irritations, no more distractions.

Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

So shall it be in Jesus’ name.

Victory number five: is when enemy becomes a friend – when former enemy becomes a friend – that is a very good victory.

In Acts chapter 9 verse 17 to 21…

Haa! Thank You Father.

The Lord says there is someone here and you came here tonight knowing that the enemy is hot on your heels, pursuing you vigorously; the Lord ask me to tell you, I will open the gate for you to escape and then I will shut the gate against those who are pursuing you.

Haa! thank You Lord.

This one is good; I want to say amen to it.

The Lord says there is someone here tonight; He wants to do two things for. Number one: He says he want to move you from the valley to the hill top. And then number two: He says if you are grateful, He will move you from hill top to the mountain top.

If you are the one, I think you should shout a big hallelujah.

Acts chapter 9 verse 17 to 21: the Bible tells us about the conversion of Saul of Tarsus.

He was great enemy of the church.

Then, on the road to Damascus, He had an encounter with God. He became a Christian and then he started preaching the gospel.

And everybody began to say ha ha, this was an enemy before; he was the enemy of this people; he was the ark enemy…

Well! Now, he is a friend.

In Daniel chapter 3, read the whole story from verse 1 to end: you will have another example of victory.

There was this Nebuchadnezzar who was busting to Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego – who is that God that can deliver you from my hand, you are dead, he said.

By the time the story was over, the same fellow who wanted to roast these boys promoted them – I like that.

When God arises, He can turn the former enemy to a very good friend.

In Psalm 132 verse 7 to 9; the Bible says if we go into His tabernacles and worship at His foot stool, then He will arise for us and the saints will begin to shout for joy.

When your enemies become your friend, it is very beautiful thing.

I had stories I could tell you but I am mindful of time.

So, I am just going to ask you to stand on your feet and pray this prayer anyway without my telling you the story; because the story I was going to tell is a personal story and then, I don’t want to embarrass anyone.

Just lift your voice to the Almighty God and say: Father, all the enemies close to me, before the end of this month, let them become my friend.

Go ahead talk to the Almighty God.

Enemies in my family, enemies in my church, enemies in my place of work, all those enemies that are very close to me; enemies that I cannot even really fight, let them become my friend this month – this very month let them become my friend; let them become my friends. You know them Father, some of them I don’t even know, some are in my father’s house, some of them are in my mother’s house, some of them are my in-laws, some of them are my assistance, some of them are supposed to be lifting up my hands; you them all Lord, all I just want is that all this enemies Father, before the end of this month let them become my friends.

Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

So shall it be in Jesus’ name.

Let us be seated.

Let us look at number six.

Number six victory: is when your enemies become your servant – and l like that very much.

In Acts 16 that I read to you or the text we chose, if you look at verse 33 and 34 there (Acts 16:33-34), you will find that the Jailer, the one who was told to keep Paul and Silas thoroughly bound; was the one who washed their wounds, who prepare food for them to eat – I like that.

Rather than God wiping out all my enemies; it would be a better idea if He would change them to my servants.

Those who don’t want me to make progress it might be a good idea if they will be the one to come and contribute to my progress.

Or what do you think?

Those who don’t want you to reach the top, all of a sudden they are the one bringing you the Ladder for you to climb – I think that would be a very beautiful idea.

Those who said you will never marry, if they are the one who come to prepare the food on the day of your wedding

Don’t you think that would be a beautiful idea?

Psalm 110 verse 1: God made a promise that He will make our enemies our foot stool.

Psalm 57 verse 5 to 7: He says when we exalt Him, when we exalt the Almighty, then the pits that are dug for our feet by the enemies, they will fall into it by themselves.

Those who want to reduce us to nothing will suddenly become the people who will become our foot stool.

I cannot gloss over this one because I believe it is going to be true for someone here.

You will remember the testimony of that lady that I told you about on the day of our wedding when we went to the registry in Oshogbo; we met somebody there.

We met a lady there, well dressed, she had her wedding gown, everything, she came for wedding; but they could not find the husband.

The boy who promised to marry her, meet me at that registry, was nowhere to be found.

The poor girl nearly went mad; but somehow she survived it.

And then, she finds a solider boy to marry and unknown to her, the boy who jilted her also joined the army.

Then, in one of the various coups happened in Nigeria; her husband became a military Governor; and the boy that jilted her became the aide de ’camp of the Governor.

So that anytime this lady wants to enter her car, it is the former boyfriend that has to open the door.

Stand on your feet and lift your voice to the Almighty God and say: Father, turn my enemies to a servants, let them serve me, let them serve.

All my enemies, let them become my servants. Let them become my servants. Let them become my servant Lord. I need somebody to help me climb, then use the enemies Lord, let them become my messengers, let them become my messenger O Lord; let them become my servant; let them become my servants.

Thank You Father. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

So shall it be in Jesus’ name.

Please be seated.

I am about to close now.

Victory number seven and this is probably the biggest one – that is when the enemies come to beg; when the enemies come to apology - to beg you and say I am sorry.

Thank You Father.

The Lord says there is someone here tonight, He said, those who want to put you to shame, shall be put to shame for your sake.

Thank You Father.

The Lord says there is someone here tonight, He said you have tried several times and failed, He said after tonight, try again and you will succeed.

Amen!

You know, one of my boys who were preaching said “when you praise God that will cause God to remember His promises and prophecies”.

God is saying and I am saying amen to this one.

God is saying there is someone here today, He said, the promise I made you to make you special will soon be fulfilled.

I want to close but Daddy is speaking.

Thank You Daddy

Again, I want to say amen to this one – I want to say amen and amen and amen

Daddy says there is someone here tonight; He said there is a special miracle coming your way. Now, that is beautiful enough but He says a little more - He said, it will be the first of the series of miracles.

Amen. Amen and Amen.

Now, in the same text, Acts 16 that we referred to; after the earthquake and the doors is opened, chains loosed, Jailer came – was saved, washed the wound of Paul and Silas, fed them…

I was wondering, why didn’t Paul and Silas then go?

But they waited, I don’t know God has something bigger in store; because by the following morning, those who sent Paul and Silas to prison sent a message to the Jailer – you can now let those people go.

Haa!

Paul laughed. He said I am not moving.

Tell them to come and beg me before I will go. That is very beautiful.

And they all came and begged him.

In the Name that is above every other name, before the end of this month, all your enemies will come and beg you.

In 2kings chapter 1, you can read it from verse 9 up to 14 or 15 – it is up to you. You can read the whole chapter anyway.

A King sent fifty soldiers and a captain to go and arrest Elijah.

They came, they saw him seating on a mountain, they sent man of God come down, you are under arrest.

He said, me

They said yes.

He said, me!

They said yes.

He said, roast.

And fire descended from heaven and consumes them.

The king waited for them to return, he did not see them; and the king respected Elijah.

You have to respect a man before sending fifty soldiers and a captain who has no weapon.

He sent another fifty soldiers and a captain. They came, said the same thing; Elijah roasted them too.

The king sent another batch – fifty soldiers and a captain; that one came and he looked at the ground and he saw ashes in the shape of men and did a quick count and found it to be one hundred and two.

Oh oh; this is what happened to those who came before.

The Bible said he fell on his feet and said man of God: please, I won’t dear come against you, it is the king who sent me, spare my life. – I like that.

Your enemies will come and beg you.

A traditional ruler somewhere in Ogun State, I won’t mention names, became born again, and I meant thoroughly born again not pretending and so, he decreed no more idol worshipping in my domain.

And the egungun worshippers said, we have been worshipping egungun here even before your Father was born not to talk of you; we will worship our egungun – and the worship ceremony will last seven days.

Three days before the set time came, the high priest died and they cannot worship without a high priest; so they postpone the date and selected a new high priest.

Three days before the postpone day, the new high priest died.

And then they consulted the third fellow and they said you are the one next – he said no way.

He said the God of Kabiesi will kill me.

Stand on your feet, pray one more prayer and say: Father, as a result of praising You tonight, let all my enemies come and bow.

Go ahead talk to the Almighty God.                              

Thank You Daddy.

All my enemies with their idols, with their charms, with their power, with their influence, with everything they say they have, let them come and bow to You Lord, let them come and bow to my God, let them come and beg, let them come, let them come, let them come, let them come very soon, let them come, let them come, let them come. All my enemies let them come and beg; let them come and surrender, let them come Daddy; let them come, let them come this month. Before the end of this month let everyone of them come and come and confess and bow and surrender to You Lord. Let them come.

Thank You Father.

Glory be to Your holy name.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

And so shall it be in Jesus’ name.

Please be seated.

Now, my children have given you the definitions of praise.

They have given you the definition of victory.

That is while I decided let me add a little to what the big boys have said and discuss categories of victory.

But do you know that when you say you are praising God and you lift your hands to the Almighty, what you are actually saying is: I surrender.

I told you, I use to be a Boxer; and one of the things I learnt in those days, gone are those days forever; is that when two fighters are fighting and one realizes if this fight continues I may die, he will lift up his two hands: saying I surrender.

And the moment he lift his two hands, there is the law that the opponent must not hit him again – not a single blow.

Once the opponent lift up his hands and say I surrender, no matter how strong you are you must not touch him again.

So, lifting up your hands saying to God I surrendered; He will be the referee now in the boxing ring and pass instruction to all forces of darkness: don’t you ever dear touch that fellow again.

So when we say come and surrender your life to Jesus Christ that is one of the implications.

The moment you surrender to Him, you lift up your hands…; hey! Referee, I appeal to you, I cannot fight these battles anymore.

I am tired of suffering; I am tired of being beating; I am tired of all these loads coming from right, left and center; and He, the Everlasting Referee would pass instructions to all those who had been beating you, had been fighting you, and say: from now, no more blows.

So, if you are here tonight and you have not yet surrendered your life to Jesus Christ that is probably the reasons you are having these blows.

And there are some of us who would say but I thought I have given my life to Jesus and blows are still coming – check your surrender – is it total?

Because if your surrender is not total, any area of your life that is not surrendered to God, the enemy can still deliver blows.

I surrendered all.

If you want to give your life to Jesus Christ, you better begin to come.

I can see some of you very very far away; so, you better get up and begin to come.

If you claim that you are born again, you know yourself that you have not really surrendered, you better come.

I am going to count from one to fifty because of those who are very far away; and I am counting now…

One, two,

Don’t forget, even the trees clap their hands.

The Ocean claps.

Three, four, five, six, seven,

As you come, just surrender – lift your hands to Him. Surrender and begin to pray and ask Him forgiveness. I surrender to You, just take me as I am.

Eight, nine, ten, eleven, twelve, thirteen,

Keep coming, keep coming, just make sure you get here before I finish praying

Fourteen,

Keep coming, keep coming and keep praying now. Talk to the Almighty God. Ask Him to have mercy on you; ask Him to forgive all you sins; ask Him to receive you as you are.

Promise Him: I surrender now and I will do Your will from now on.

Go ahead talk to the Almighty God.

And please the rest of us, let us stretch our hands towards this people and intercede for them.

Let us pray that God who saved our souls will save their own souls also. Pray that God will be merciful unto them and He will give them a brand new beginning. Evening as they are surrendering now, let the Almighty picked them up and take control of their situation from this moment onward.

Let us pray for them for another thirty seconds.

And if you are still on the way, keep coming, keep coming; get here before I finish praying because I must pray now.

Thank You Father. Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Saviour we just want to say thank You. Thank You for Your goodness, thank You for Your mercy, thank You Lord of host, thank You for Your word, and thank You for this people who have come forward tonight, please receive them in Jesus’ name; forgive them in Jesus’ name; save their souls in Jesus’ name; wash away their sins with Your blood in Jesus’ name; please write their names in the Book of Life and let them become one of Your children. And I pray that from now on, anytime they call on You, You will answer them by fire. Thank You my Father and my God.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Amen.

Praise the Lord.

Now, Counselors please come; come and attend to them here.

I want to thank God for those of you who have come forward. I want to promise you in the name of Jesus that from now on, I will be praying for you.

So, I am going to need you names, your address and your prayer request.

The Counselors are coming, they will give you some cards which I want you to fill very quickly and you will return to them; and then, as soon as you return it to them, you can go back to your seat.

I will wait for you to finish before we proceed further.

Now, brethren, while we are waiting for our new brothers and sisters to complete their forms, I think on a night like this without being told, you will want to praise God like you have never done before.

If you are not too old, I would appreciate that you stand up and just lift your hands to the Almighty God and just praise Him.

Praise Him for His mercy. Praise Him for His goodness. Praise Him for His support. Without Him the enemy would have finished you before now – it is by His grace; it is by the mercies of God that we are not consume. Let us praise Him. Let us praise Him. Let us praise Him - on your own now. From the bottom of your heart praise Him. He is worthy to be praised; He is worthy to be adored. Magnify His holy name. Magnify His holy name.

*********Singing in the Holy Spirit*************

Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have given thanks.

I want you to join your hands with your neighbour; we want to pray one crucial prayer before we go to thanksgiving. I want you to pray with all your heart. Remember when you are joining hands like this, you are applying the Law of harvest: what you sow is what you reap; and the harvest is always bigger than the seed.

So, lift your voice to the Almighty God and say: Father, make the victory of my neighbour permanent.

Go ahead talk to the Almighty God.

Let the victories of all these Your children be permanent O Lord, let their victories be permanent; let their victories be permanent; every one of them make their victories permanent.

Thank You Father.

Let their victories be permanent.

Thank You Father.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

And so shall it be in Jesus’ name.

The victory that God has given you today will be forever. The enemy you saw last night, you will never see again.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Amen.

Let me hear somebody shout a big hallelujah.

In that Name that is above every other name, all you defeats shall be change to victory. From now, for the rest of your life you would never need to fight another battle; God will fight your battles for you. Your enemies shall become friends. They will leave you alone; they will come and beg you. Your former enemies will become your servants. Your victory of tonight will be absolute. Even as you go now, your song will be victory victory hallelujah. And you will never never see those previous enemies again. The Almighty God will bless your offering; He will sanctify it, He will use it for His glory and you will have total victory over poverty in Jesus’ name. By the time we meet again next month, in the Name that is above every other name, your joy will be overflowing. God will grant your requests; and you too, you will serve Him. In the kingdom of God, known of us will be missing.

In Jesus mighty name we have prayed.

Amen.

I don’t need to tell you what God will do next month but I can assure you, there will be no month like July 2016 in the life of every one of us.

So make sure that you come, you come with your friends, you come with your relatives, you come with everybody; it is going to be the month of Prosperity and it will be prosperity all round in Jesus’ name.

Now, let me find out who really has the Biggest Victory tonight.

Let that fellow shout the biggest hallelujah.
