GOD REMAINS FAITHFUL
I thank God for His mercy upon my family and I. Though, the past 9 years have been challenging, I thank God for His faithfulness because He did not write me off, even when my parent did. He did not disappoint nor fail me.
NEW BUSINESS AND SAFE DELIVERY
I glorify the Name of the Lord. I had in the past been planning to establish my business and I was finally able to do so this year. Secondly, I give God all the glory for ease and safe delivery.
DIVINE ESTABLISHMENT AND SAFE DELIVERY
I want to appreciate God for His goodness. I deal in a product that is related to teenagers and children which requires the government’s approval. And God told my wife and I to join the church’s workforce, which we did; I, the teenagers church, while my wife, the children church. I give God the glory for what He has done; my wife opened a school while my product was approved by the government. I’m also grateful to God because my wife delivered our child safely despite the challenges that arose during the delivery. I thank God for being a faithful Father.
GOD IS FAITHFUL
I want to bless the name of God for keeping me till this time because each time I remember the story my parents told me surrounding my birth, I know I’m alive due to God’s faithfulness. I thank God for not disappointing me when I got married. Secondly, I want to thank God for unmerited favour in my career. I’m also grateful to God because yesterday was my wedding anniversary and on the 17th, my daughter would be a year older while I also become a year older on the 31st. I give God all the glory.
I thank God because today is my first-year wedding anniversary and I would be celebrating my birthday this month. I give God all the glory.
HEALING OF THE CHEST
I want to thank God for healing my chest. I struggled to sing and walk so I took off time to rest in my clinic and while I was there God took me through a trance and the Angel told me that I would be fine. Last week, I couldn’t make it to church but when my husband came back, he told me that God had healed me because Pastor prophesied that a lady with heaviness in her chest had been healed. The moment he said it, I felt relieved. I give God all the glory because I am fine to the glory of God.
THANK GOD, MY PROVIDER
I want to thank God for His faithfulness. I passed through a lot of challenges in the past two weeks in my academic pursuit. I thank God for provision even when my bank account was drained. Though I had a lot of expenses, I thank God for taking care of all. To God be the glory.
DIVINE PROTECTION FROM A STRAY BULLET
I want to thank God for my life and family. The Lord averted an evil occurrence from happening; I got home after sanitation and I was told a stray bullet pierced through the roof into the dining room. I give God all the glory because my children were supposed to be eating at that particular time. God did not allow anyone pay me a condolence visit.
Sis. S. O.
During the December 2018 edition of Praise Ye The Lord, I was pregnant and was told to come for inducement because I was past my due date; so, I danced that day and was delivered of my baby the next day. I am here to fulfill my promise to the Lord. I give Him all the glory.
2 weeks ago, on my way to church, my family and I were all on a bike, and at a particular junction a vehicle splashed water on us and I said “Jesus!” At the end of the service, my father and mother-in-the-Lord, Pastor and Pastor (Mrs) Ola Olukoyede, blessed my family with a car! If not for God. God bless Mummy and Daddy Olukoyede in Jesus name.

DIVINE PROTECTION FROM ARMED ROBBERS
I want to thank God for life, good health for my family and I, and favour at work where He made me the head. 3 days ago, God protected me, I was waiting for someone at the bus stop when I was attacked by two armed robbers with cutlasses. I thank God because they did not harm me. I give God all the glory for protection and being able to celebrate another birthday.
Dcn. O. B.
I thank God for being able to celebrate my birthday, for making me a grandfather again, and for protecting my family and I. Secondly, I want to thank God for my work; a project I was working on was cancelled and I was bothered, so I told pastor and we prayed about it. To the glory of God, it was restored.
I want to appreciate God for what He did this week. At the institution where I work, we were recruited by a consulting firm for the State Government and I head a crucial department. However, in another department within our organisation, the head of department resigned and the institution tried very hard to get another group head but it failed. Finally, last year, we were able to recruit someone for the role, but when the person saw the situation within the department, he quickly resigned and left. On the 40th day of fast, my Executive Director told me that I was going to head the department. During our last review, our performance as a department had improved significantly and we are now successful. Praise the Lord!
During last the May BDS, Pastor mentioned that some people would receive financial breakthrough unexpectedly and I held on to the prophecy with faith. On the same day, as I left church and went to the ATM to collect the last ₦500 in my account, I saw that my account balance had increased to ₦65,000. 2 weeks later, I found out that it was my fiancé in the USA who had made the transfer for my feeding. He made another transfer of ₦250,000 for me to get a new apartment; and now he’s thinking of coming to Nigeria to pay my bride prize before I put to birth. Glory to God.
I bless the name of the Lord. During the special women’s program, God healed me through Pastor Becky Enenche. Praise God.
I want to thank God for what He did during the fast. God did something for me which has only happened once in my career of over 15 years. It happened on the 40th day of the fast when I was not expecting it. I give God all the glory.
3 months ago, Pastor prophesied that “if you are here and you are due to go to Asaba, do not go.” I was due for an official assignment at Asaba, but when the list came out instead of Asaba, I was posted to Abuja. Secondly after the BDS, on my way home, I was feeling sleepy and I slept off while driving and when I woke up, I had nearly pinned down an okada rider to another vehicle but God took charge. Glory to God.
On the 24th of May, I boarded a bus from National, but, unfortunately, it was full of eight thugs who collected my cash, id-card, wristwatch and bag they asked me series of questions about my bank account. I thank God for safety, protection and they returned back my belongings. I thank God for saving me.
Mr I. P.
GOD IS FAITHFUL
Recently, I was at the bank and after my transaction, I forgot my ATM card at the machine; and a man ran after me, he gave me my card and the money that was dispensed. I give glory to God because the man was not a thief. As we were taught in Sunday School (about tithing), I thank God that I pay my tithe and I encourage everyone else to do so.
Mrs S. B.
I thank God for the grace to visit and reconcile with my mum, the burden has been lifted. I also thank God for favour to and fro the visit. Secondly, I am thankful to God for my family and the church for encouraging us. I give Him all the glory.
Mrs V. A.
I give thanks to God. On the 19th of May, I lost my husband. I thank God that he did not give us problems. He cautioned us not to keep him in the mortuary. God provided all that was needed for the burial and I am also thankful for journey mercies for all those who came, near and far. The devil wanted to raise his head but God knocked him down. Glory to God.
I testify for the gift of life, series of answered prayers and good health from January till date. Glory to God.
Deacon A. A.
I thank God for safe delivery. This one was not delayed like previous deliveries. I thank God for strength and when the baby started stooling after birth, I used the miracle handkerchief Pastor prayed on and the stooling stopped. I pray for those expecting a miracle like this that God would locate you before the end of this year.
10 years ago, while delivering my baby there were complications and surgery was advised, while my husband was away at Kwara State. As the hospital staff were looking for a vein, the doctor checked again and the baby’s head came out. I thank God for life and my son is now 10 years old. Glory to God.
VICTORY OVER DEATH
Since January 1st, I had been having wrong messages about death. Whenever I board a bus, the thought would come again. On Thursday, during faith clinic, Pastor asked us to declare and I started declaring and later that night, I had a dream where a man confronted me and said “you think you can pray?” I give glory to God that death has been averted.
Bro. A. W.
SUCCESS IN MY EXAMS
I wrote an exam and my prayer point was to pass it in one sitting. God did it! Secondly, I am thankful because I am alive to celebrate another birthday. Glory to God.
Mr V. E.
I thank God for safety at work. I joined my company in 2017 and many people have died during the project but I thank God for keeping me. Although, it is said that they (the company) wants to withdraw about 300 workers, whether my name is there or not, I am grateful to be alive.
Mr J. J.
FREEDOM FROM DEBT
In March, I received a phone call about a woman whom I guaranteed. All efforts to reach her proved abortive and as a result, my boss informed me they would be shutting down our office. I spoke to everyone but no one was willing to help. I made up my mind and got a lawyer, and he stood firm and they requested that she get another guarantor and I was exonerated from the case without paying a dime. I thank God for helping me.
Mr A. W.
GRACE TO FAST AND PRAY
I want to appreciate God for what He did for me during the 49-day fast. I did not use to fast in the past because I had a serious ulcer. If I fasted for just a day, it would turn into a month of health crises; so, I was always scared of fasting. But this year I told God that I really wanted to partake of the fasting with the brethren. The first day, I was afraid but I summoned courage and started not minding the consequences. And from the day I started till the day I stopped, I never had any crises and the ulcer has gone. Praise the Lord!
Sis. E. M.
I want to thank God for what He has been doing in my family, this year He gave us a major breakthrough. I also want to thank God because on the first Monday in March, I had just resumed at the Lagos State Teaching Hospital where I was supposed to meet a client. I alighted from the car with my sales rep after we had parked the car and a jeep came rushing towards our car with high speed and the only thing I could do was to shout Jesus because I was confused. Suddenly, the driver swerved and the car spun around three times. I thank God because the vehicle did not hit us. I also thank God for seeing me through a mini-surgery and since then I did not have any complication arising from the surgery. I return all the glory to God. In addition, I want to thank God for my younger sister who graduated from the University of Lagos last week with a second-class upper division in Engineering, despite the challenges of being on medication. Finally, I want to thank God over our last born, who recently gained admission into a university. I give God all the glory in Jesus name. Amen
Sis. P. E.
GOD IS FAITHFUL
I want to appreciate God on behalf of my family for what He has been doing for us. He has been faithful. Months back, I lost my job and had since been trusting God for another one. 2 weeks ago, I met with Bro. Ebenezer and told him that I did not understand how my life was going. He asked me if I was born again, I said yes. He asked me to check myself to see if I was indulging in anything that did not please God, so I did and I concluded it must be that I still patronize beer parlours. So, I decided to not visit them anymore and to the glory of God, yesterday I was invited to resume work at a place I never dreamt of. Praise the Lord!
I just want to appreciate God because He is in this place. I had been trusting God for the payments of a particular contract which we executed but the money was delayed, and I had been praying about it. During the last BDS, Pastor said, “there was someone here who thinks he has lost a contract but the contract is coming back to you.” I bless God because not only was the contract restored to me, all our outstanding payments were also made last week. I also thank God for our 13th year wedding anniversary, I give glory to Him for His faithfulness, and our children will be celebrating their birthdays this month too. Praise the Lord!
At the beginning of this year, I had some health challenges and I felt I could not participate in the general fasting and prayer program. However, I trusted God and prayed. I came to the altar and made a vow to God that if He would heal me of the stomach problem I had, I would come to praise him. I thank God that for the first time I was able to fast almost all through the 40 days. I bless the name of the Lord because I know that by this He has healed me in Jesus name. Amen.
Sis. T. B.
OLDER AND STRONGER
I am giving this testimony to the Almightiness of God. In 1999, I had to undergo major surgery and God saw me through, but ever since I had been having stomach problems. My daughter also underwent surgery and God made it successful. During these periods, death snatched two of my sisters in five months, I also lost my brother and everything was really rough. I went to see Daddy Ola Olukoyede who just resumed at the church at that time. I explained everything to Daddy and he prayed for me. After he prayed, he said that the Lord would restore my health. Five years ago, I celebrated my sixtieth birthday anniversary and Daddy prophesied that as I grow older, I would only look younger. I am 65 years old today, hale and hearty. Praise the Lord!
Dcns. E. A.
REINSTATED TO WORK
I am here to testify to the glory of the Lord. Last year, I got a job as an assistant through a friend. I was being paid by my friend instead of the company. In December, the owner of the company, a white lady, paid us directly in dollars and said she did so instead of throwing us an end of the year party. My friend got to know and was angry that I was paid the same amount as her. In January, she called and said that we had been directed to return a part of the money. I told her that I had already given the money to my mum, and she later said that I wasn’t going to work with her again. In March, Pastor was praying and he asked us to ask for something we would like God to do for us that week and he returned to his seat. When he came back to the altar, he said God told him that someone in the congregation asked that God will touch the heart of someone to call you back to work. Three days later I was called back to work. Praise the Lord!
Sis. O. E.
GOD SAVED US
Last month on the 10th, it was a Sunday evening and I was getting ready to sleep. I decided to have a bath and upon getting back from the bathroom, I saw that my ceiling fan had fallen on my bed. I praise God that nobody was on the bed at the time it fell. My younger daughter who was always fond of staying in my room had just returned to the school that day. I thank God that she was not around. I can’t imagine what could have happened. Praise the Lord!
I GOT MY DREAM JOB
I want to thank God for what He has been doing in my life in the recent past. He has been doing so many wonderful things in my life. I thank God for what he particularly did in my mum’s life, three weeks back, she underwent eye surgery and it was a very huge success. I want to bless God because even the doctor testified that my mum’s surgery was about the most successful even though her eyes were about the worst case; each time my mum calls she says that her eyes are as good as new. Secondly, just before I graduated from university in 2017, I prayed to God that I did not want to spend any time out of school unemployed. I want to thank God that my prayer was answered. Few months after my graduation I got the job that brought me to Lagos and when I resumed, I discovered that the job did not commensurate with the pay. So, I began praying for a better job and I got my dream job on the 1st of April 2019. I just want to give God all the glory!
I want to thank God for His presence in this place and the gift of God in the life of our Pastor. During the January BDS, Pastor gave a word of knowledge and said before the end of January somebody was going to get a job. And I was already praying to God for a new Job. On the 30th of January, I told God that it was just a day left for the month to end and I had still not gotten the job. Miraculously the following day, I got two job offers. Praise the Lord!
Sis. E. O.
GOD SPARED ME
About 2 weeks ago, I was on my way to Abuja from Lagos but our bus had a flat tyre immediately we got to Ondo State. We continued the journey when the tyre was changed, but between Kogi and Abaji, we heard a gunshot behind our car. I advised the driver to increase his speed and as soon as he did another set of armed robbers crossed our way, so we had to park. The car doors were opened and everyone fled. As I was running, I fell on the express road but I managed to enter into a ditch. While I was there, I could hear the armed robbers shooting sporadically. I decided to jump down the ditch and what I saw was a man in white being escorted by a man with a gun, I felt it wasn’t safe enough so I went further into the bush. We were in the bush for about an hour and thirty minutes before the police came. But they just drove through blaring their sirens, they did not even check what was happening. Not long afterwards, the military who were on patrol came and rescued us. On getting to the car we discovered that a passenger had sustained bullet wounds and was left in the car. We took him to the hospital and continued on our journey. I want to thank God for sparing my life even though I lost some properties in the attack.
Mr O. T. E.
REASONS TO PRAISE GOD
Earlier this year, I had been praying that God would give me the opportunity to come out to testify. I want to thank God that indeed He gave me reasons to testify. God gave me a breakthrough in my place of work, I was the best staff of the month. Last week, Pastor said that we should pray that our cloud full of rain should pour down. I never knew he was particularly referring to me. On the 28th and 29th of April, I was awarded two international trips at work. May the name of the Lord be glorified forever.
DEVIL’S PLANS DEFEATED
I want to appreciate God for the successful completion of my 4- year degree program. I was returning from visiting a friend’s mum who was ill and I was involved in my accident where my leg was broken. However, I thank God because today I can walk properly with both legs. Last week, I had a dream that I was shot at the back and since it had been very difficult for me to sleep and wake up. It caused my lateness to the workers-in-training and Pastor asked us to attend a three-day vigil as punishment. On the same week, we started the vigils, I was able to sleep soundly after the first day and all pains are gone till. I bless the name of the Lord for spoiling the plan of the devil over my life, may His name be praised.
Sis. S. A.
I want to thank God for the opportunity to come out to testify. My elder brother was admitted the second day his wife delivered of their baby and I told God that He will not give me a blessing and take another from me. As the baby grew, my brother remained in the hospital but we kept on praying. In December, we celebrated a family member but in January we lost her. It deeply hurt my family. In February, I underwent surgery on my leg even in the midst of prayer and fasting. In March, there was confusion in my husband’s office, and I came here and we prayed about it. As God would have it, in April, my month of restoration and light, on the first day, God gave my husband another wonderful job. On the 2nd day, we celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary. On the 4th, my son graduated from UNILAG after successfully completing his Masters’ degree and now serves in Jos. My brother, who had been sick, is now healthy and will be resuming work tomorrow. On the 18th, my daughter will be 24 years old. Behold, my celebration is here. Praise the Lord!
Sis. D. O.
GOD IS FAITHFUL
I want to appreciate the name of the Lord for being God over us, for being my Husband and a Father to my children and for being able to celebrate my birthday this month (April). Ever since I started attending this church, I have had no cause to lack. At times, I would just look back to see how far God has brought me, even my in-laws wonder how we had been coping. I thank God for giving me the strength to move on, may His name alone be exalted in Jesus name.
SAFE DELIVERY DESPITE DELAY
I have come to give this testimony to the glory of God. He put laughter in my mouth and I can boldly stand to say that God is good. My wife put to bed last week on Wednesday. It wasn’t an easy journey; my wife was in labour for two days but we kept on praying. She said she was having serious contractions but the child refused to descend lower into the cervix. I called Mummy and Daddy Olukoyede, and they joined me in prayers. God then ministered to me that my wife should be wheeled into the theatre for a caesarean section. I told the doctor and he said I would have to be with them in the theatre. I agreed. I was there and I saw the way she was opened up and the baby was brought out. The cord was wrapped around the baby’s neck and there was no way he could have come through normal delivery, otherwise, we would have lost the mother and the baby. I just want to give God all the glory that I am celebrating and not mourning. Two days later, I was told that my mum slumped in the hospital and was at the point of death. I said the devil is a liar; I thank God she was treated and is now hale and hearty. I give God the glory!
GOD IS GOOD
I was skeptical about coming out to share this testimony but I cannot just keep God’s goodness all to myself. Since January, we have been having issues in my company and as a result, salaries were delayed. I want to thank God because He has been faithful, we have not had any cause to borrow or beg. Recently, God raised help from nowhere and I have been wondering how He has been doing it because I cannot fathom it. I want to give God all the glory because He made a way where there was no way. I also thank God that my son celebrated his birthday on March 26th. I remember after he was born, he had a bad case of jaundice but today he is hale and hearty. I made a list of all I wanted to do for him on his birthday and presented it to God in faith and miraculously, God did it all. Praise the Lord!
Sis. F. A.
GOD DID IT!
I want to thank God for what he has being doing in my life, especially during this just concluded RCCG fast. Last year, pastor was preaching on the ‘Lessons from the Journey Zarephath’ and I kept on retracing my steps to see what I was not doing right. At some point, I realised that I was bigger than my job and I kept on praying about it. I almost resigned from the job but God kept telling me to be patient. A lot of unfortunate things happened in the course of the fast; my boss called me towards the end of the month and explained that she needed me to resign because she did not have enough money to pay me. I did not know whether to cry, weep or mourn. However, when I got home I was at peace and I kept thanking God for the opportunity to break forth. In February, mummy asked us to pray that we will testify in March; I prayed with everything in me because I knew we were rounding up the fast soon. During the week, I kept on thanking God for a door that was about to open and then one day while praying, I sat down and was practicing my testimony and praying that I would stand before the people of God to say that the door finally opened. God has done it! The door automatically opened on February 28th without any struggling. I want to give God all the glory. Hallelujah!
DANCE TO VICTORY
During the February thanksgiving service, Pastor told us that no matter how we feel at that moment, God wants us to dance. As many of us that were in that service, we would remember that he kept asking us to dance. I danced so much like I already had a victory. To the glory of God, I received the answer to a prayer that I had been praying for years that very week. And to crown it all, I received the breakthrough that I had been trusting God for on February 28th. I want to say; may His Name be praised forever in Jesus name.
Last month, I testified that I had joined the kingdom partners. I travelled for a burial ceremony the following week and I did not open my shop for three days. On getting to the shop, while I was still talking to my neighbour and opening the padlock, I saw that the roof had been opened. I just laughed as I informed my neighbour. Eventually, when I opened the shop, I discovered that nothing was taking out my shop by the armed robbers; I don’t know what made them to leave even after gaining access into the shop. I laughed because I know I pay my tithe and often assist people, so it’s impossible for my shop to be burgled. I praise the Name of the Lord in Jesus name.
GOD REMEMBERED ME
I want to bless God for the grace to go through the journey of nine months of pregnancy successfully and He gave me my heart’s desire, a baby girl! I also want to appreciate God because He remembered me in 2018. In addition, I finally got a job in Lagos State. Glory be to God!
Sis O. A.
I stepped into this church in December 2017, and I told God that I liked the church and asked Him to affirm to me if this was the church that I should fellowship with. I set three major goals for the year 2018, one of them was an 8-figure financial goal for the year and in January 2018, not even up to 30 days after my prayers, God fulfilled that financial goal. I thank God or the opportunity to share this testimony after so many postponements. Praise the Lord!
Sis M. B.
I thank God for my elder sister in particular. She got married in 2013 and since then we have been praying for the fruit of the womb. In 2016, she suffered a miscarriage and we thought all hope was lost. However, in June 2018, she conceived and to the glory of God, she was safely delivered of a bouncing baby boy this February. I want to bless and appreciate the Name of the Lord because today my sister is a mother. Let somebody shout Hallelujah!
For the past two and half years, I had been under several pressures at my office, majorly because I had a new boss, who due to cultural differences, had many misunderstandings with me. He showed me so much hell but to the glory of God, God used the same man to approve my promotion which I did not deserve. I have now been lifted two steps in my career. I also want to thank God for the successful burial of my uncle whom we lost at the beginning of the year , I asked God why he made me weep at the beginning of the year and God said to me’ I will give you joy’ and it was the promotion I earlier talked about. I thank God the we buried him in peace and everything is now back to normal. Praise the Lord with me!
Sis J. J.
I SHALL RECOVER IT ALL!
I have come to give God all the glory for the fulfilment of His promises from this exalted altar. There are so many words that come from this altar and I try not to forget them. At the beginning of the year, we prayed seriously on the on the covenant of life. I wasn’t able to come to church on the last Saturday in January because I got into the wrong bus, popularly called ‘one chance’. It was a very terrible experience but I thank God because it could have been worse. We were beaten terribly but a week after, I was able to get back on my feet and here I am today. I lost a lot during the kidnapping but I brought my friends together afterwards and we prayed seriously for restoration. We told God that we did not know how He was going to do it, but He just had to. I am here to say that to the glory of God at least 37% of the loss has been recovered so far and I am grateful to God in advance for double perfection. On the same week of the incident, there were about four different bad news that came which we continued to pray about and God has already turned one around into a testimony, and I know He who has started it this way will bring it to completion.
Sis C. N.
SUCCESSFUL SURGERY & EXAMINATION
In January, my wife put to bed safely but after the naming ceremony we discovered that the baby had some medical complications that required surgery. Our baby went to the theatre and came out alive. He is well and is doing great. Secondly, I have been struggling with my ICAN professional exams for some years now and in 2018, I told God I must complete the program that same year. I wrote the November diet of the exam and I felt that I did not do very well. During the December 2018 PRAISE YE THE LORD Service, I told my wife we have prayed enough over the matter and it was now time to praise the Lord over it. We sat in front row praising God throughout the service, despite my wife being heavily pregnant. The result eventually came out on Jan. 15th but I was scared to check. A friend suddenly called me and said congratulations! You are now a chartered accountant. I give God all the glory.
I thank God that I am not at home mourning my first child. He was involved in a ghastly car accident at Akowonjo Round-About on Friday. I thank God that he is alive and well today. I have come to return all the glory to God. Praise the Lord!
Sis. A. S.
When my daughter was born, she had to be transfused with blood 24 hours later because she had a minor issue with her rhesus factor. The procedure was quite long but God took total control and she was fine afterwards. Ever since, she has been hale and hearty, and we have not had any cause to visit the hospital. And to the glory of God, she clocked one yesterday. Praise the Lord!
Bro. K. S.
SUCCESSFUL SURGERY AND CEREMONY
Towards the end of 2018, we lost our Dad, and the burial ceremony was held on Dec. 28th. I want to appreciate God for granting everyone who came for the ceremony journey mercies and also for making the ceremony a success. God indeed manifested Himself even as we gathered to thank Him at the end of the day. Secondly, in Jan. 2019, my sister informed me that she was going to undergo goiter surgery; and the devil reared his ugly head. She had been induced and wheeled into the theatre, but after some time the doctor wheeled her out and said he couldn’t perform the surgery because the surgery might not be successful for several reasons. Eventually she started bleeding from her nose and mouth without any cut and the operation was rescheduled for the next Tuesday. She waited but nobody called her to come to the hospital and it dawned on us that the devil was out for battle. She was later called on Wednesday, and the surgery was done and it was successful. The Lord took absolute control. After the surgery, she then narrated how patients in two other rooms had died. I give God all the glory that we did not have any cause to mourn in the new year. May His name be highly praised in Jesus name!
Sis. J. O.
DIVINE BLESSING & HEALING ALL THE WAY
I want to appreciate God for my family. Since He gave us a child, the boy has been a source of tremendous blessing to my family. I once came to testify of how God terminated a series of miscarriages (4 times) and gave me a miracle baby. I really want to appreciate God for that. During the Nov. Breakthrough and Deliverance Service, I invited my sick father-in-law and told him to believe God for his healing. He had been diagnosed with so many chronic sicknesses. I was just praying that God would locate him in the midst of the crowd and suddenly Pastor went towards where he sat and stopped. He took him by the hand and lead him to the alter and told him that he was healed and ever since, he has been healed. I want to appreciate God for terminating the plan of the enemy over my father-in-law’s life. I give all the glory to God!
Bro. T. A.
My daughter-in-law was due to deliver last month. She called me and I encouraged her that she should decree upon herself that she would deliver safely just like the Hebrew women. I told her to inform me when they got to the hospital so we could join them in prayers. I prayed with them at the hospital and not long, about two hours later, I heard the cry of the baby and also saw the baby via the internet. I just want to thank God for His mercies and faithfulness over me and my family. Praise the Lord!
Sis. L. O.
BLESSINGS THROUGH OBEDIENCE
During the one of the past BDS, Pastor called the kingdom partners for a meeting and I joined them unknowing. Ever since, the Holy Spirit had been laying it strongly in my heart to join the group. After Jan BDS, I joined them and upon getting to my shop that Saturday, customers kept coming buy things as if one had opened a tap of water. It was like the blessings had already started coming when I had not even dropped the money. As if that was not enough, I started receiving bank credit alerts from my brothers and sisters without asking any of them. God has been so faithful, ever since that Saturday I kept receiving alerts and I know how much I have in my account now. Praise the Lord!

THE DEVIL FAILED
I was involved in an accident last month. My car was stuck in between two fully loaded container trucks. The car at my back had a failed break and hit my car, sandwiching it in between both trucks. We were about five in the car and we all came out of the car without a scratch, alive and well. As soon as I got out, I was just laughing and the people around me wondered why. It’s because the devil has failed. Praise the Lord!

GOD IS FAITHFULL
In Jan., while people were complaining about the month being hard, it was indeed one of my best months. My husband and I celebrated our birthdays and our wedding anniversary. On New Year Day, my husband bought me a small car. However, the devil wanted to destroy the car but he came late. In the space of a few minutes, a learner-driver hit my car and drove into my shop. But I thank God that no life was lost and everything that was damaged have been repaired including my car. Everything has returned to normal. I just want to bless the name of the Lord.

SAFE DELIVERY & BLESSINGS DESPITE ODDS
I want to appreciate God for the safe delivery of my baby in Nov. 2018. In the course of the pregnancy, the doctor told us after a scan that the baby was not well positioned and might have to deliver through a caesarean section. However, I prayed that she had a normal delivery for our first child and would do the same for this second child in Jesus name. And within 2 weeks, the baby’s position returned to normal. The Lord also enabled my family and I to travel abroad. And last year, we were able to move to our own house. I really appreciate the name of the Lord for these.

GOD IS HERE!
From the day I stepped into this church, it has been one testimony after the other and I was telling my sister that it seems those who have been worshipping here do not know the grace they are under. Three months after I started attending this this church, I got promoted in my office. I also gained admission for my Master’s degree, which I had been struggling to get. Sometimes last year, I had a dream that Pastor Olukoyede picked an orange among those that were on the table and asked me to take it, I did and after that he left. I was about to follow him when he said that I should go back and pick all the oranges on the table, they were so much, and I did so. A month later, I was transferred at my work place to a much better place and since it’s been awesome. The financial favour I have been receiving since then has been awesome. I also want to thank God for healing my sister. The devil really came for her last year ready to fight but the Lord defeated him. She started having this severe heart palpitations, it was so bad she had to move to the family house for adequate care. I kept praying for her, and during the BDS services I would use myself as a point of contact to her, and God took over. She has not experienced such since the beginning of this year. May the name of the Lord be glorified for He has done these grate things for me and my family.
GRACEFUL END & EVIL RETURNED TO SENDER
I want to specially thank God for two major things. He saw me through the organisation where I had worked for many years and He helped me to bow out gracefully. Before the end of December 2018, we went somewhere to work and looking at the records, I discovered that my staff had not been working there. I enquired why this was so and I was told that it was because the property owner was a herbalist, so they were afraid to go there. However, I went to the place myself, truly the man wanted to demonstrate that he had powers. He tried to direct some evil at me but God took the glory. Knowing that a child of God must never be a coward, I confronted him with the Word of the Lord and all the evil returned to him. I give God all the glory.
DIVINE PROTECTION AND FEAR REMOVED
I thank God that 5 years ago, God used my husband to make a great decision in my life. I resigned from my job without hesitation to attend a fashion school. And I thank God because, today, I have a fashion school of my own which is 5 years old today. So far, I have not had a reason to regret resigning. I also want to say THANK YOU to Jesus for always protecting my husband on his numerous journeys by both air and land. I have never received a distress call from him. I thank God for His faithfulness in my son’s life too. And I also appreciate God for removing the spirit of fear from my life. A lot of friends told me that I could not drive and this became a serious challenge for me. I attended a driving school but 4 years later, I still did not drive. There was a particular Sunday that pastor encouraged us to sow a seed and help someone, and that day someone requested for my help which I offered and I prayed to God to also help me overcome my fear of driving by the reason of the seed. I thank God that today I can now drive well, even if a trailer is by me. God helped me through and He made 2018 a blessed year for me. Praise the living Jesus!

IT ENDED IN JOY!
December 2017, I received a distress call from my daughter; I called our Daddy and Mummy-in-the-Lord and they prayed with me. Later, I travelled to meet her in the UK. I also called my son in Atlanta, informing him of the situation and requested that he join me in prayers. 24th December, we were asked to bail my daughter’s husband, whom the home office had picked up. After listening to the home office lawyer, the judge overruled the office lawyers claims and said he must be making a mistake because my son-in-law and daughter were legally married having reviewed their documents. The judge then asked him to go home and help his wife, my daughter, who was heavily pregnant. That was how he was released. In February 2018, he was picked up again, and I called mummy again and she told me not to worry and just hold on to God’s promises. The following Thursday, my son-in-law called me from detention that he would be arraigned in court the same day at 5pm. So, I called the lawyer and he said he was already going to court. The judge asked if this was not the same man that was brought before him a few months ago and he asked him to be released. However, there was a man who was attacking my son in-law telling him that he was to be deported because his name was already on the manifest. Upon looking at the list again, it was seen that his name was not on the manifest. In April, when my daughter put to bed, I went to the UK again, and on a certain day while I was at home, the doorbell rang and, behold, it was my daughter’s British stay that was being delivered. The following week, my daughter’s passport, my son-in-law’s and my two grandsons came out. Today, the entire family are British citizens. Praise the Lord!

DIVINE RESTORATION & MYSTERIOUS CALL DESTROYED
I want to give God all the glory for restoring one of my son’s academic life which was almost cut off in 2017. He was suspended from school during his second term but today, he became the best in WAEC and is currently undergoing training at the Defence Academy. Early last year, I kept receiving mysterious calls but the caller mostly remained mute whenever I answered it. Whenever he spoke, it was in a language I did not understand. This went on until the end of February. One day my younger sister called me and instructed me not to go out between March 24th and 25th, that there would be a strange call that would require me leaving the house; that if I answered the call and leave the house, I would not return alive. I informed my wife and we prayed together. We attended the March BDS – Silencing the Voice of the Enemies, which came at the nick of time. Before then, I had made a promise to God which I wanted to fulfil in 10 months, so I told Him that I could not die before fulfilling my promise. I was upstairs during the BDS and the strange call started coming in, while Pastor was declaring against voices from the grave and that was how the Lord delivered me. I am standing here as a living soul to thank God. Praise the Lord!
Mr I. O.
I give all the glory to God Almighty concerning my daughter. In November, during the naming ceremony of her baby, somebody peeped through the window of her house and said congratulations. I asked her why did she not come in to greet them and I was told that my daughter’s case was different in the community because, until the church intervened, most women at childbirth, are usually the ones calling for help. And some would die at childbirth and their husbands would be called to carry their corpse but when she heard the sound of the baby and mother alive, she had to stop and congratulate us. Even though the devil tried his best, God still spared my daughter’s life and even gave me another grandchild that same month. I give glory to God even for the ones I am still expecting. Praise the Lord!

GOD IS FAITHFUL
I was going through some challenges and I decided to hold on until I got victory before telling Pastor. However, along the line, I decided to inform him and he prayed with me. For a year, I travelled every weekend by air from between Abuja and Lagos and I thank God for His divine protection the entire time. During the challenge, my name was sent to the CBN governor for approval by someone I don’t even know, I just kept praying and having faith. I also met with Mummy GO and she said God is working on it already. Meanwhile I received a call before the 31st of December for a next level from overseas, I don’t know how they got my contact and as regards the approval from the governor I know it will be done in Jesus name. Glory to God!
Bro. E. A.
GOD LOVES ME SO MUCH
Since I joined this church, God has shown me so much love; he delivered me of all my problems. Before Pastor travelled to resume his job at Abuja, I was always coming to him for prayers but since he was no longer as available as then God has given me power and grace to pray for myself with results, Praise the Lord! God has been so kind to me and He even used my children to teach me how to speak English fluently. God also gave me a second great grandchild on New Year Day. May all glory, honour and adoration be to Him in Jesus name!

BACK TO NORMAL
Last week, when I visited my daughter, she asked me if I did not notice her bulging stomach which had been making her uncomfortable. She went further to say people have reproached her and said so many things about that stomach and she believed that when Daddy would come, she would receive her healing. And, truly, when he came the stomach became normal. Praise the Lord!
I AM NOT A BEGGAR
25 years ago, my people looked at me and some of them said that I would be a beggar. But I replied that it was not my portion, that instead of me being a beggar I would be giving to people and I would be paying salaries. They thought I was joking. I went on with my life and to the glory of God today, I am married, with my own car, two houses and a company. I give all the praises to God.
On the last Sunday in October, Pastor preached that no one succeeds without a helper and suddenly, he came down towards the choir stand and laid his hands on some of us. The week after, someone called me to help erect a replica of our altar here in a church under Province 18 and I told her that it wasn’t a cheap job but she replied, ‘No problem’. And to the glory of God, I started the altar in the first week of November and within three weeks, I delivered the job. Also, none of my workers were hurt in the process. Glory be to God.
Sometime in June at the Microfinance Bank where I work, a colleague of mine (a cashier like me) who had been using my log in details without my knowledge for fraud, absconded with ₦3 million. On a fateful day at the office, I was arrested and this colleague had stopped coming to work since Monday, pretending to be sick. At the end of the (work) day, we got to her house but she was not there. Then the landlady took us to her husband’s shop but he was not there too. So, the policemen said that ‘I was in for it’ and I was taken to a cell where I was overnight. During this time, I was also pregnant within 2 weeks to my due date. On Friday, she was arrested and I was released but ever since we had been on the case, going to the police station in order to absolve my name. on Wednesday, the MD of the Bank suddenly called me to say that I had been cleared of the fraud and I should resume on Monday. I am here to give God the glory for vindicating me and fighting my battles. Praise the Lord!
Last year, between December and February, I lost three people to breast cancer and the enemy started telling me that it was my turn. But I kept saying, ‘NO.’ I was 40 in October but the enemy was telling me before then that I would not clock 40, that instead of a birthday celebration it would be my obituary. I became depressed but I kept praying. I was using the RCCG Convention mantles to pray and at the end of everything, God healed me. But last Sunday, it started again, so I went back to the hospital where I was told to go for mammogram and other sorts of tests but in the course of the week, all the pains disappeared. PRAISE THE LORD!

THE FAITHFULNESS OF GOD
Earlier this year, it did not look like anything good would come out from me but God Almighty has proven Himself so strong in my life. I requested for three things that God should do for me this year and by the grace of God, two have been done. I am now a landlord by the grace of God because when I newly arrived Lagos, I did not have a place to stay and I slept under the aircraft where I worked. Also, my certificate was withheld after graduating in 2015 but by October this year, I was given my certificate and I came out excellently.

SPEEDY RECOVERY FROM ILLNESS
I thank God for quickly recovering from sickness. It was very serious but God took control. I want to thank my father-in-the-Lord for his continuous prayers for me; may God bless him and his family in Jesus name (Amen). I also want to thank the elders for their prayers and calls while I was in the hospital, may God bless them and make them well in Jesus name (Amen).
Mrs. A. T.
Before coming to this church, other churches we had been to kept telling us that before my father’s burial, somebody else would die. So, we kept praying against it. The last day of November, my mother fell ill and she was rushed to the hospital, and on the same day, my immediate younger sister who was pregnant called one of my other sisters that she was in labour and went to the hospital. I was confused and I told the Lord to take charge that I would not bury anybody this year. As God would have it, my younger sister was delivered of a bouncing baby boy and my mother was also discharged from the hospital, and she is healthy now. Glory be to God.
DIVINE SURPRISE AND HEALING
During the November thanksgiving service, Pastor told us to ask for help. I had already given up hope, I didn’t want to trust anybody but he kept saying that we should ask for help. With tears in my eyes, I asked because I had been waiting for two years asking for this request. During that same week, the Lord surprised me from where I least expected. On Friday, my mother fell ill and started crying asking us to pray for her. She began to speak like she was prepared to die. We were scared because Tuesday was the 3rd anniversary of my Step Father’s death and we were told back then that my mother would pass on shortly. But I thank God because today, she is hale and hearty. Praise the Lord.
Sis. A. O.
UNTIMELY DEATH BROUGHT TO AN END
I thank God for bringing to an end untimely death in my lineage. In my family, we used to bury someone yearly. But last year (2017) and this year (2018), we did not bury anybody. I give God all the glory.

MY CASE IS DIFFERENT
I want to thank the Lord for the mighty miracle He performed in my family. Last Saturday, my son called from school that he was tired of lying in the hospital bed and he wanted to go back to the class having been in the hospital since Thursday. I told him to be patient and allow the doctors discharge him. We tried to reach him on Sunday to no avail, we had to call someone around his school to please go and meet him, when he answered the phone, he said he had been fainting. I could not sleep that night, I kept praying to God asking him to provide a spare human part that was missing in my son’s body. The following Tuesday, my husband and I decided to visit him in school. On getting there, we met him at the hospital, he could neither talk nor open his eyes. We proceeded to the medical director were we were told that our son had been diagnosed with different kinds of diseases and that the illness was so severe that it could have drained all his blood but surprisingly when they carried out tests on him, everything was okay. I give all the thanks to God because the medical director confirmed that some people did not survive this same kind of illness that my son had. I appreciate God because he proved Himself. Praise the Lord!
Mrs M. J.
UNIVERSITY ADMISSION SECURED
I appreciate God on behalf of my nieces. They have been at home for the past three years seeking for admission into university. While praying with the prayer points that daddy gave us during the breakthrough and deliverance service, I mentioned their names and asked God to please answer their prayers of admission even though they are Muslims. The next day, my sister called and told me that they had both secured admission into universities. I have come to bless the Lord because I know that He alone has done this. Praise the Lord!
Mrs A. O.
I want to appreciate God for all He has done in my life and how much He helped me the previous week. Pastor imparted the grace for help into our lives that same week. I got a contract to deliver some shirts to Jos and the client told me to send them by bus on Thursday evening so she could get them latest by Friday morning. However, I sent the shirts on Wednesday to avoid taking chances. I got the drivers contact. Surprisingly as at Friday morning the lady said she had not received the shirts. I called both of the driver’s numbers but they were not reachable. I became worried and I cried to God that He should help me and that if He did I would testify. I went back to the park but I couldn’t find the person I sent the shirts through. I met a motor park tout ‘Agbero’ and he took up my matter. He started shouting in the park looking for the driver. I gave him all my documents and I stood while he went looking for the driver. The Agbero gave me some details which I gave to my client in Jos and within three minutes, my client called back to tell me that she had received the shirts. About five minutes later she called back to say she has gotten two other contracts because the shirts were just perfectly done. I just want to give God all the glory for His mercies.
BLESSINGS THROUGH OBEDIENCE
I am testifying to encourage us to key into any instruction that our daddy gives us. During the period daddy preached on Deliverance From Contrary Wind. He told us to pray from 12am to 2am before the BDS and that night it was so difficult. However, I told my children that we were going to pray at a Foursquare camp around us and not at home. We got to the camp and we struggled to pray through. As soon as we finished praying the points, God told me to go out of the room and walk around the camp while repeating all the prayer points. I was feeling so sleepy but I obeyed. The moment I got back God gave me a song and I sang it, He gave me another which says Ibanuje ti keru (Sorrow has packed its load), Osi ti lo (Poverty is gone) Oke isoro wa ti di ipetele (Our mountain of trouble has become plain), Olorun Alagbara ti kii baati (The Almighty God that never fails), ohun lo pa ibanuje aye wa re (He is the one that has cleared off sorrow from our lives). Since that time it has been one miracle or the other happening in my family. Praise the Lord!
Mrs F. O.
I thank God for the salvation of my soul. On September 28th, about 200 people were laid off at my office and I was included. However, On Sunday daddy said someone was going to receive a letter containing good news. The following Wednesday I was given a letter that recalled me back to work. I want to give God all the glory in Jesus name!
DIVINE VINDICATION & NIGHTMARES GONE
I just want to bless the name of the Lord for what He has done for me. Last week was a very hectic one for me at school. We have been praying in our house fellowship that I should successfully graduate and I did not know God was already working at it. Being the general secretary of my student Union, I have the official letter headed paper in my custody. Unknown to me some students had been using the letter headed paper, forging my signature at various times and withdrawing money from the union account. The school was waiting for me to hand over so I would be probed. However last week, one of the fraudsters was not given the money. He called me and just started spilling out their secrets to me forgetting that he is part of them. I took it up the matter and was eventually exonerated. Also November BDS service, pastor prayed for people who have terrible night mares. I came out for prayers because even when I sleep in the afternoon, I dream of my dead relatives, but since pastor prayed for us, I have not experienced such dreams again. Praise the Lord!
Sis S. A.
I sincerely appreciate God for the salvation of my soul and most of all I am thanking God for the successful completion of my industrial training. I had almost lost hope of completing my IT because I did not get a placement until the last month we were to resume at school. God in His infinite mercies raised help for me and even when I was rounding up the training, I had issues with my supervisor but God in His infinite mercies again raised someone to speak to him on my behalf and I had good grades. And a staff even commented that I was like one of the student staff, and for a staff to make such comment about me despite the issues I had, it shows that of a truth that God granted me favour! Praise the Lord!
Sis O. M.
HELP FROM ABOVE
I bless God first for the salvation of my soul. There was a particular Job I had been trusting God for months ago. I had a friend of mine who was assisting me to get the Job and ought to have resumed the job since October but it was as if my friend was not doing much to help. Last week Sunday, when pastor was preaching about Help From Above, I keyed into the word and on November 2nd I was called to resume at the job. Praise the Lord!
Mr S. A.
NO COMPLICATIONS DESPITE ALL
I want to thank the Lord for His goodness and mercies over my family. This time last year I was heavily pregnant but I thank God that my baby came out at thirty four weeks without any complications. Despite all the trials and temptations I faced then, we are today alive, hale and hearty. I thank the Name of the Lord!
Mrs B. A.
DOUBLE PAY, BETTER OPPORTUNITIES!
I want to appreciate the Name of the Lord because He is always faithful. Last Month, it dawned on me that I needed a testimony for this month (November). I did not know what it was going to be but I told God that he should just give me a testimony this November being my anniversary month. My husband actually submitted my CV to a firm we did not even know. At my work place, I discovered that I had been on a spot for the last five years. They were not increasing our salary and since May they reviewed our salary downward and they kept telling us to resign if we were not satisfied with the pay. Last week I was called up for an interview I wasn’t even expecting, they wanted me to resume almost immediately but I told them to give me some time. I couldn’t attend November BDS because I had to be on duty. I was just praying along in the spirit, almost immediately I was called to come and pick up my appointment letter by the HR of where I went for the interview. I called my husband to tell him and he said pastor was just saying it in the service that somebody was expecting a letter and it would come before Tuesday. Lo and Behold I got called up for a new job on Saturday. Double Pay, Better Opportunities! Praise the Lord!
Sis A. D.
MIRACULOUS INTERVENTION & PROTECTION
My testimonies are to the glory of the Lord. All of a sudden, at my office, it was as if hell was let loose, everything came against me. I immediately called on Daddy and Mummy alongside Deacon Tony, asking them to join me in prayers and as they prayed everything just fizzled out to the glory of God. Secondly, I was on my way to the United States from London and the plane had gone One hour, 10 minutes and everything was going on smoothly when suddenly the pilot announced that the plane’s engine was faulty and he must make a U-turn back to London. At that moment everything went very silent. Along the way back, the plane engines kept on jacking, but the glory of God, we landed safely. Praise the Lord.
Deaconess F. O.
I bless the name of the Lord, the Father to the fatherless and the Husband of the widow. I joined this church last month and Mummy asked us to pray for our enemies and also invited the first timers forward and she asked the congregation to pray for us. As at 12 am on Sunday night. I was just checking my phone and I saw a credit alert from my husband’s family. I was surprised because, ever since I lost my husband, his family hated me and my children so much but to the glory of God they suddenly started calling me on Monday asking about our welfare. I could not hold back my tears. Praise the name of the Lord!
ADMISSION INTO DESIRED UNIVERSITY
I want to thank God for his goodness over me and my entire family. I told God that I did not want any of my children to attend Polytechnics nor State Universities. I wanted them all to attend Federal Universities and the Lord granted my request. Many people say it is very difficult to gain admission into Federal Schools but God made it possible for my four children to gain admission into Federal Universities. I did not testify when the first passed out of service, I did not testify when the second graduated and I started feeling guilty and asked God to have mercy on me. The last of my children just gained admission to UNIBEN this is the more reason I have come to testify. Praise the Name of the Lord!
