Let thanks, praises, honour, dominion and power be given to the Father, in the Name of
Our Lord Jesus Christ. Let thanks, praises, honour, dominion, power and supremacy be given to
the Father, in the Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Let thanks, praises, honour dominion and
adoration be given to our Father now and forever more. Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty
who reigns and rules in heaven above and on earth below, we your poor children have come
before your throne as woeful sinners. We fall at your feet as the prodigal son, as Mary
Magdalene and as the felon on the Cross. We have sinned against you in heaven and on earth.
We have sinned against you through unholy utterances, untoward movements, and unseemly
behaviour. To this end, we are not worthy to be called your children. But because of the Cross
on which Divine Emmanuel, your Son, was nailed, and His precious Blood was spilled for the
redemption of humanity, you have, on account of this, turned your back against our wrong
doings. You have forgiven and blotted out all our sins, in the Name of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
We thank you, because you have forgiven and wholly blotted out all our sins, not
minding how numerous our sins are before you. Daily you continue to teach us to have love for
one another; and to love you with our whole heart, soul, and mind; to love our neighbours as you
love us. Let thanks and praises be given to you in the Name of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
We thank you because you have washed us clean in our flesh, soul and spirit. You have
endowed us with good and sound health and peace in spirit and flesh. You have bestowed your
love, peace, joy, happiness, hope, meekness, understanding, truth, faith, goodness, gentleness,
patience, humility and temperance on your children; and you teach us to be truthful and honest in
our lives. Let thanks be given to you, Father, in the Name of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
Come, Oh! Holy Spirit, come with your mighty power. Come as thunder, come as
lightning, come as flood and torrential rain to wash away our sins. Come as a consuming fire to
burn away our filthiness, guilt, fleshly desires and all carnal desires in us; in the Name of Our
Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
Come as the Supreme Doctor to heal us in spirit and in flesh. Visit the mental patients in
the psychiatric homes and right in the leprosy hospitals, in prison yards/detention camps, the
epileptics, those with whooping cough, visit the maternity homes and the welfare homes. Enter
the depths of the oceans, the Atlantis, and into the four corners of the universe, the East, the
West, the North and South.
Protect those who believe and have faith in you, and those who do not. Thank you
Father, for you have taken away suffering and death within this prevailing hour from your
children, in the Name of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
We have surrendered all sinners, mischief makers, lawbreakers, murderers, thieves and
robbers, bribe-receivers, fornicators, avaricious people, and those who harbor or nurse other
grudges. We have surrendered the false prophets who mislead the masses into your powerful
hands. Those who pretentiously honour you with their lips only, but their hearts have left you,
and their actions are far from you. Those who receive your divine counsel but would not put it
into practice. Those who do not pay tithe, freewill offering and charity. Those who give no help
to the poor, the widows, and the destitute. We have surrendered those who have not spread your
Gospel of good tiding to the four corners of the world, and those who spread the Gospel but do
not practise what they preach. Those who do not answer "Amen" when the blessed Name of your
Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ is mentioned. We have surrendered those who do not kneel down to
say their prayers when they are distressed or sick. We have also surrendered those to whom the
secrets of life are revealed, but they refuse to herald them to the people concerned. Those who
add or subtract from what they are spiritually shown, those who do not believe in visions and
prophecies as being the truth; even those who get angry when visions and prophecies are
revealed to them.
We have equally surrendered drunkards, juju doctors, sorcerers, necromancers to you.
We further surrender those who have been learning and have never come to the accurate wisdom
of the truth; those who have never entered, and do not allow others to enter. We earnestly plead
with you Father to forgive them in the Name of Our Lord Jesus the Christ. Amen.
Thank you Father for the tremendous spiritual powers you have poured on your children
in the entire world within this hour. Thank you God Almighty for the spiritual backing which
you have bestowed on your children at this end of time.
We have surrendered the governments, all heads of state and functionaries of
governments into your most powerful hands. All the traditional chiefs and chieftains, emperors,
kings and queens have all been given into your merciful hands of protection and guidance. We
have, in the same vein, surrendered all the principalities and powers into your most powerful
hands; the orthodox churches, prayer houses, service-centres and Healing Homes and the higher
institutions of learning. We have surrendered all the Elders, Prophets and the Prophetesses,
Spirited Children, Visioners, Pastors, Apostles, and Evangelists, Christ's Students, Christ's
Witnesses and Christ's Servants, Choristers, all ordained ones, the children, congregation, men
and women. We have surrendered the out-stations from the oldest to the smallest into your most
powerful hands. All your disobedient children and the backsliders and those who listen to your
counsel but do not put it into practical realities.
Do your work! Do your work, you, great and Supreme King of the Universe, let thanks
and praises be given to you in the Name of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
Thank you Father, because you have descended with your heavenly
hosts to join your children on the earth below to sing praises, and glorify your
Name just as it is done in heaven above. By songs of praises your glorious
Name has been raised. Through songs, there is no more war in Nigeria,
Africa and the entire four corners of the inhabited earth. Through songs, the
dead is raised; through songs, the chronic sinners are converted and
transformed unto God. By songs of praises all those who died in the Lord are
resurrecting daily; and through songs also the sick are healed. Through songs
those who always deliver still-born babies now bear living children. Similarly
the barren now have children through songs. Through songs you have wiped
tears from our eyes. Through songs death and Hades are removed and put
into fiery furnace. Through songs division, brawl and wars are taken away -
in the Name of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
Through songs the kingdoms of the world have become the kingdom of
Jehovah God and His Christ. Let thanks, praises, dominion and power be
given to you, Father, in the Name of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
Through songs those who have no husbands or wives have now been
given; and through songs those who need passports, visas and scholarships
have been given.
We thank you because your children are no longer hungry and thirsty. The sun and moon
no longer scorch your children because you have spread your wings of protection over them.
And you have successfully piloted them to the stream of living waters. You have wiped away
tears from our eyes. Let thanks, praises, and adoration be given to the Father in the Name of Our
Lord Jesus Christ. A-men.
We thank you for there is no more crying, wailing or lamentation; in the Name of Our
Lord Jesus Christ. A-men.
The tabernacle of God is now crowded with men. He is our Father, and we are His
children. And neighbour shall not teach his neighbour to know God, for all shall know Him
from the least to the greatest. He shall remember our iniquities no more, in the Name of Our
Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.

The first heaven and earth had passed away, and the oceans and the Atlantis are no more;
in the Name and Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
For you have said, except Jehovah builds a house, they that labour, are doing so in vain.
And except Jehovah watches over a city, the watchman stays awake for nothing. He has taken
dominion in the sun, moon, and the stars. He has taken dominion in our bone marrow, blood-
stream and in our entire flesh, in the Name of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
We thank you, Oh! Father, for what belongs to us, belongs to the Father. Let glory be to
the Father in the Name of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
In all the places where the sun and the moon shine, your glory and power engulf the four
corners of the universe. And by this, we are united as one fold under one Shepherd, now and
forever more. Amen.
Let thanks, praises, dominion and power be given to You, Father, in the Name of Our
Lord Jesus Christ. Let thanks, praises, adoration be given to God in the Blood of Our Lord Jesus
Christ, Amen. Let thanks, praises adoration and supremacy be given to our Father, now and
forever. Amen.
Thank You Father

REFERENCE: "The Father's Divine Prayers"




Brethren, the theme of our lecture is the efficacy of prayers. Your greatest problem in life
is that many of you do not believe in the power of prayers. You do not understand that
prayer is the only medium through which your request can be made to God, and it is only
by prayers that God can grant your requests, of course through intercession by Our Lord
Jesus Christ.

What Is Prayer?

Prayer is the expression of man's dependence upon God for all things. It is a means of
grace that has a large value, for it affords the privilege of close communion with God
especially when one is alone with Him in supplication.

In Matthew 16:18, Our Lord Jesus Christ said to Peter: "Thou art Peter, and upon this
rock I shall built my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it, and I will give
unto you the keys of the kingdom of heaven." The keys purported to have been handed
over to Peter was a symbol of Prayers, and that is why it is parabolically said that: "Prayer
is the key of heaven, and Faith unlocks the door."

As a child of God, whatever are the circumstances confronting you, do not quarrel or fight
with, abuse or curse any person. Do not murmur or blaspheme against God. But tell God
your desires. "Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand. Be careful
for nothing; but in everything by Prayer and Supplication, with Thanksgiving let your
requests be known unto God." Phil 4:5-6. St. Matthew in his gospel directs: "And all things
whatsoever you shall ask in prayer, believing you will receive." (Matt 21:22). Once you
make your requests known to God, the God of peace who passes all understanding, will
grant all your requests.

Is there any of you who believes fervently in the power of prayer? Your greatest handicap
is that you do not pray always. You either feign shy or feel too lazy to pray. Realizing that
prayer affords you the privilege of close communication with God, you should pray always.
St. Paul in his First Epistle to the Thessalonians 5:17 confirms that people should pray

This is further confirmed by Acts 6:4, when the Apostles declared: "We will give ourselves
continually to prayers," and Luke 18:1: "Men ought always to pray and not to faint."
Wherever you find yourself kneel, knock your head on the ground, and give thanks to God,
requesting Him to do what you wish, and He will not fail to do it for you. No matter your
difficulties and problems, never be worried. Do not quarrel at all. Simply communicate
with your Father. He will readily solve your problems and difficulties. If you are hungry,
He will fill you abundantly. Whether you are poor and wretched, sick and helpless, have a
difficult case in the court, do not tell any person but communicate your problems to the
Father in prayers. He will enrich you, heal you, discharge and acquit you.

If you are a hardened criminal, whether you are a thief, a liar, a fornicator, a murderer,
place it before your Father and ask that He should change you and cause you to forsake
these vices. He will graciously do it.

If you consider that you cannot be socialized with the attributes of the kingdom, whether
love, truth, honesty, patience, humility, self-control, simply kneel down and commune with
the Father, and He will endow you with these attributes. If you are recalcitrant, or always
annoyed, do not worry yourself, just tell your Father in prayers, and He will take them

It is the height of stupidity and dishonor to testify that you have refrained from fornication
and theft, not knowing you are exposing yourself to danger. Simply confess to the Father
and He will right all wrongs.


I want to use an earthly situation to illustrate a heavenly situation for you. There was a
certain village which was always invaded by thieves and robbers who molested the
villagers. Before visiting any person's house for the purpose of plundering, they would send
a letter informing the person of their intention to visit on a scheduled date. Everything was
done to stop their activities but there was no success. The government could not legislate
against them, the Police could not control them because they had their own police and

On one fine night a wealthy woman, realizing the situation of things knelt down and started
to pray that God should provide employment for all the thieves and robbers because it was
not their pleasure to steal but because of lack of employment. As she was praying, little did
she know that the thieves had already taken positions in the compound and even inside her
rooms. The spies among them had already hidden under the bed. She did not quite end her
prayer before the robbers started coming out one by one, masked to hide their identity.
They all expressed surprise at the type of prayer she offered, and that they thought she
would abuse and curse them for their actions. They told her that since she did not utter
disgraceful and abusive words, they would go back without taking anything from her
house, and that no robbers will ever break into her house and steal. They confirmed in
their confession that it was not their pleasure to continue to molest innocent people but that
they had neither jobs nor any form of livelihood to maintain their families, some of which
had a numerical strength of twelve. They could not feed and clothe them. They were only
forced by circumstances to steal.

Their explanation evoked a deep sympathy from the woman who was moved to give them
money, but they maintained that they would not take anything from her since she had
prayed God to provide them with jobs. Having been impressed by the woman's action they
went away with the hope that God would provide them with employment. The woman's
prayer worked like magic. That same week all of them gained employment in fulfillment of
the woman's request, and the activities of invasion and piracy ended automatically. That is
the Efficacy of Prayer.

God Is Your Only Hope

How many of you believe in the moral of this story? As a result of your lack of patience,
you beat up people, thrash your children, take others to court in order to compel
compliance instead of taking everything to God in prayer. You can force a horse to the
stream, but you cannot force it to drink. Why do you not take your requests to your
Father? Whenever you are faced with any situation you cannot solve, just go into your
room, kneel down, knock your head on the ground and give thanks to God mentioning the
problem. If you have no money, ask Him and He will give you. But if you rather go to
people to assist you in your penury, no person will be ready to help you.

If You Have Trails And Temptation, Take It To God In Prayers

It is not advisable to report your problems to your fellow man. Tell them to the Father who
has the answer for everything. Do not lobby or bribe your boss to promote you, for he will
not be able to do it. Pray to God, and He will promote you. If your house is on fire, do not
invite the fire brigade, for they may delay; but pray to the Father, and He will extinguish
the fire when you least expected.

Pray to Avert Temptation

At any moment of your life, prayer is very efficacious. Our Lord Jesus Christ realized this
fact; and that was why during the time of His trial, the most critical period of His life,
advised His disciples to watch and pray lest they enter into temptation. Matthew 26:36-41
"Then cometh Jesus with them into a place called Gethsemane, and saith unto the disciples,
Sit ye here, while I go and pray yonder. And he took with him Peter and the two sons of
Zebedee, and began to be very sorrowful and very heavy.

Then saith he unto them, My soul is exceedingly sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here,
and watch with me.

And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed saying, O, my Father, if it be
possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.

And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What,
could ye not watch with me for one hour?

Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh
is weak."
You do not appear to believe the power of prayers because when you are asked to pray
unceasingly, you want to do everything by the promptings of the flesh. But you do not start
to serve God yet. A similar key given to Peter has been given to you in this age, that you
should pray unceasingly and that you should make your requests known to God by prayer
and supplication.

Pray Without Ceasing

If you read Acts 4 you will discover what happened to the Apostles and how they were
saved through prayers. When they had been threatened, the Apostles lifted up their voices
in prayer:

Acts 4:29: "And now, Lord, behold their threatenings; and grant unto thy servants, that
with all boldness they may speak thy word." Acts 4:31:"And when they had prayed, the
place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the
Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness."

You who lament, cry and weep, stop crying and tell your Father all your requests. Pray any
moment of your life. That is why he advises that you should refrain from sin because if you
begrudge any person, your prayers will be hindered. You can solve all you problems with
prayers. That was why Peter and John answered and said unto them, in Acts 4:19-
21:"Whether it be right in the sight of God to hearken unto you more than God, judge ye.
For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard. So when they had
further threatened them, they let them go, finding nothing how they might punish them,
because of the people: for all men glorified God for that which was done."

It is through prayer that the Gospel came down, and through the Gospel everything is
calmed down. St. Paul in his Epistle to the Romans 15:30-31 said: "Now I beseech you,
brethren, for the Lord Jesus Christ's sake, and for the love of the Spirit, that ye strive
together with me in your prayers to God for me; That I may be delivered from them that
do not believe in Judea; and that my service which I have for Jerusalem may be accepted of
the saints."

In everything with prayer and supplication let you request be known to God, and the God
of peace who passes all understanding shall keep your heart and mind through Christ

Paul knew the efficacy of prayer that was why he always asked that he should be prayed
for. Prayer solves all sorts of problems. There is nothing that prayer cannot accomplish.
James in his general epistle 5:16-18, bears eloquent testimony when he said:

"Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The
effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. Elias was a man subject to like
passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the
earth by the space of three years and six months. And he prayed again, and the heaven
gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit."
I have taught you everything but you do not want to understand and experiment if prayer
can or cannot do anything at all. When you read Isaiah 37:1-36, you will discover the real
power of prayer. From the distant past, there was nothing prayers could not do. At any
state of your life, pray to God to guide you. When you are undertaking a journey, pray to
God. If you are serving, pray to God first. A spiritual chorus says those who pray will have

Always remember the efficacy of prayers.

Here endeth our short lecture. Amen

Thank You Holy Father.
