Greetings to you in the mighty Name of Jesus Christ.
Please I ask you to stand with me in intercession for my next Crusade. My Team and I would be holding a 2-day Eternal Life Gospel Crusade in Zawan, Plateau State of Nigeria, 30 & 31 this Month.
The word of God declares in Matthew 18:18,19 thus: "Assuredly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven." I believe in prayer, but I believe much more in the God who answers prayers. I also believe much can be accomplish when we lift our voices and call upon the Lord of the harvest over the lost souls desperately gasping for eternal life. I love reading James 5:16b from the Amplified Bible. It says “…The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available [dynamic in its working].”
As we intercede together, we are sure that the power of God is made available for these Crusades and it would work in dynamic ways. If you are born again you are the righteous one because God makes us righteous who accept the Lordship of Jesus Christ. Thank you for seeing the need to stand with me as we reap these great harvests of souls into the bans of the Lord. Let the Lord once again see the travail of His Soul and be satisfied!
God bless you richly,
David C. Okoye

“And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat: But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.”
Luke 22:31, 32
The realm of faith is not a place we run in and out at intervals. Christianity is a faith-life, a life of faith. When you are not operating in faith, it is no longer Christianity – it is something else. Maturity in the faith-life is one of the major characteristics of real spirituality. 2 Corinthians 5:7 says “(For we walk by faith, not by sight:)” and Habakkuk 2:4, Romans 1:17, Galatians 3:11 and Hebrews 10:38 all declare: “the just shall live by faith” Stay in the faith realm. Faith is not just important to the Christian life; it is the life wire of Christianity. The Christian who would not walk in faith cannot please God for without faith it is impossible to please God (Heb. 11:6).
You can see the importance of faith in our daily walk with God from the prayer of the Lord Jesus for Peter. “…that thy faith fail not:…” You see, faith failure to the spirit is what heart failure is to the body. You must be sure to fan to flames the embers of your faith – never let it quench, it is deadly! The Apostle Paul tells Timothy that many have erred along the faith line and have made shipwreck (1 Timothy 1:19). Faith is more than the tool we use in receiving ‘a miracle’ from the Lord. Faith does something to the recreated human spirit that brings it into perfect harmony with the Father-God through fellowship in the Word. Fellowship with God is on the bases of faith and the Word. Faith is what keeps us on our knees, it is what makes us take heavy doses of the Word, it is what makes us live everyday with joy unspeakable full of the glory of God despite the odds. When we walk in faith, the spirit realm becomes more real to us than the physical world. That is actually what it is because the spirit realm controls the physical and the physical world came from the spiritual. That is why spiritually-minded Saints are not moved by what moves mere men.
We are more useful to God when we actually live the faith-life because God is a faith-God and His children must be faith-children too to operate with Him on a balanced and equal level. It is too costly to live in unbelief and doubt. With the present economic and political situation in the world, it is so easy for fear and doubt to find their way into anyone. But you must always have your shield of faith on to quench every fiery dirt the enemy is throwing – it’s a fight of faith! You’ve got to be alert and faithful to the Word of God. It’s actually a choice to live the faith-dominated life. So choose to stay in faith. I pray for you that your faith fail not in Jesus Name. Amen.
