Gracious Father, you have blessed me in so many ways! Today, however, I’m especially aware of the many incredible ways you have blessed me through other people. I want to thank you for the following wonderful Christian people you have placed in my life (My family, friends, colleagues, and co.). Please guard and strengthen them and use them to bless others as they have blessed me. In Jesus name I pray. Amen!!!
Most precious and Holy Father, all I can say to your marvelous grace is thank you!
Please while these words are woefully inadequate, they are genuine. Dear Father, I look forward to showing you through the rest of my life how much I appreciate all that you have done for me. In Jesus name I pray. Amen!!
Thank you Father, that my life and my future are in your hands.
Forgive me for the times that my plans are too full of myself and not consciously dependent upon you. Thank you for rescuing me from the messes I have made because of my failed plans built around my own foolish arrogance. I gladly place my plans, my life, and my future in submission to your will. In Jesus name. Amen!!!
Father, forgive me for my selfishness. I so often notice only my needs or what I deserve. There are so many good and deserving people you have placed in my life that have blessed me. Use your spirit to open my eyes and my heart to see those around me that I can bless and give me courage to act in ways that glorify you and are a blessing to others. In Jesus name I pray. Amen!!!
This year’s Holy Ghost Congress of The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) kicks off today at the church’s Redemption Camp, Km 46, Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
With the theme “Songs of Victory” the Congress will runs till December 9, each day packed with various activities, organisers say.
Among those to minister at the Congress are Enoch Adeboye, general overseer, worldwide, and other preachers, such as Bishop Tudor Bismarck, Stephen Rathod (US), Mensa Otabil (Ghana), S.K. Abiara, Mike Okonkwo, Ayo Oritsejafor, and Joe Imakando.
The Congress is not all about sermons, according to a programme released by organisers. Built in are special sessions for talks on various aspects of life.
They include such topics as: Affordable diet for good health; Identifying and operating a profitable retail business; Preservation of agricultural produce; Small scale vegetable farming; The ABC of personal and family security; Managing family finances in a depressed economy; and The pitfalls on the journey to marriage.
Expected at the Congress are members of the church from over 196 countries where the church has presence, and other people who would be attending for various spiritual reasons.
Usually, with the twin auditoriums of the church full at the peak of the event, attendance is put at over six over million people. Many other people, who are not opportune to attend, are expected to participate through viewing centres in the 196 countries.
RCCG holds monthly Holy Ghost Services at the Redemption Camp, which is rounded off with a Congress in December.
According to Pastor Adeboye, the Holy Ghost Service was first held in 1986.
He recalls in a testimony: “I was in London preparing the Sunday school booklet for the mission when I heard from God. He said, ‘Son, what do you want for your birthday?’
‘I was shocked. The reason I was shocked was that: I didn’t know God would be interested in my birthday., And secondly, I didn’t know He could be asking me for about what I wanted as present.
“So I said, ‘Lord if that is you, please repeat the question.’
“He assured me it was Him and asked again what I wanted as a birthday present.
“I replied, ‘What I want is that all my members will get miracles.’
“He asked, ‘Is that’s all?’
“I replied: ‘That’s all I want.’
“Then He said, ‘In that case when you get home, call them together and I will give them whatever they ask for.’
“I needed to call the service a name, so I asked Him.
“And He said: ‘Holy Ghost Service.’
“What happened at the first Holy Ghost Service was wonderful. And when we finished, my people came to me to request that I consulted God for the service to hold every year.
God granted the request.
“But after some time, members of the church suggested that I should request for a monthly Holy Ghost Service. And that was granted.”
