Hmmmm....this one is big. My journey with the highly esteemed Rev Tom. The first time I had an encounter with him in Benin, I was meant to lead the choir in a special number. So my microphone just didn't work. I just walked up boldly to Rev Tom and asked him for his microphone(I didn't know the due process then...lol). Amazingly he just gave it to me. I took it and did the song. He came up afterwards and told the church "when he was walking up to me I was wondering what he was coming to do. But I'm glad he used the microphone well" I had no idea that that was the beginning of intense ministry training from me...my goodness!!! One day it was total experience with the man of God pastor Chris in 1999, and Rev had bought me a new keyboard to use in church. So that programme was going to be the unveiling of that keyboard. So I opened it for the first time, and mounted the keys. We had a Holy Ghost programme . Then I was packing up afterwards and Rev came to me and asked for the waterproof casing for the keyboard. I replied " I threw it away sir. it's not important. I will move the keyboard in the box like that sir" What I heard in reply took me off my feet.....He said " go and look for it from where you threw it and put the keyboard in it and meet me in Church. That waterproof casing had to show up that night....and it sure did!!!! I moved everything to church and when he saw all intact he said to me profoundly "if you take care of God's vessels of service , He will beautify your life beyond your imaginations. The house that stands tall and beautiful took some digging into the ground to make it that way" I was like all this teaching on top of waterproof casing.....lol..but then I didn't know....Now I know!!!!! Rev Tom would call for me at seemingly inconvenient times and we would set out on journeys to do crusades and Church visitations and I would play the keyboards. I used to wonder "won't he leave me in school so I can read my books" ( I was in medical school). One day I was in class and they "came for me" ..."we are going to Lagos". they said. So from classroom to car to Lagos . From car in lagos to a meeting with the man of God pastor Chris. "Go and play the keyboards" Rev said. I walked there and played for pastor. Pastor finishes and says "give a big hand for Rev Tom's keyboardist" and I'm in awe!!! The stories go on and on. Then the day came and Rev Tom released me officially to our man of God and says to me "You are ready for the world now" .....and trully here I am with my man of God changing lives all around the world. Thank you Rev Tom sir. You made it work for me . I'm forever grateful.

HOW TO PRAY EFFECTIVELY VOL. 1 Pastor Chris Oyakhilome D.Sc DD. THE PRAYER OF FAITH The prayer of faith is one among the different kinds of prayer, and it has its peculiar rules and requirements. This prayer involves making a request to God and speaking to circumstances in order to make them conform to our desires, without doubts in our hearts. (Hebrews 11) Principles Of The Prayer Of Faith 1. There Must Be A Specific Desire Specific desire is paramount in the prayer of faith. it’s highly imperative that you have a clear and specific desire in your heart. 2. See The Unseen You should be able to visualize what you desire, and it’s only when your desire is specific that you can see it. How do you see the unseen? Through the eyes of faith! Because you can’t possess what you can’t see. 3. Use Your Evidence- Recognize the evidence and you use it. Be spiritually alert to recognize the evidence the Holy Spirit is bringing to your awareness. 4. Don’t Doubt after You’ve Prayed- Repetition is not permissible. The rule of the prayer of faith says you should believe that you receive when you pray. Praying over and over for something implies that doubt has set in within your heart. For each time you repeat yourself, you invalidate your previous request. 5. What You Say Is What You Get- Maintain the right confession As believers in Christ, our life is a life of faith. “Faith” is one of the outstanding virtues that distinguish us from the unbeliever. For it’s by faith that we accepted God’s gracious salvation through Christ, thereby receiving eternal life (the God-kind of life) into our spirits. Our walk with God is a walk of faith. #SS2VZ2
