Pastor Taiwo Odukoya has once again emphasized the power of praying with faith, describing it as a game-changer capable of crushing every mountain facing believers.
The Senior Pastor of The Fountain of Life Church made the remark at the July 4th Sunday service. He took his Bible passage from Mark 11:14, 15 and 24, and noted that Christians could surmount issues in their lives by constantly praying in faith and declaring God’s Word over any difficulty.
“If you say and have no doubt but believe what you say, you will have it,” the cleric said, citing Jesus’ cursing of the fig tree as mentioned in Mark 11: 21.
Pastor Taiwo further explained that power is released when believers speak the Word of God in faith, advising them to cultivate the attitude of prayer, especially in challenging times.
“Whatever you bind on earth is bound in heaven. Whatever you lose is released in heaven,” he stated in reference to Mathew 18:18.
The preacher, who equally cited the story of Lazarus’s resurrection and the feeding of the five thousand, admonished the worshippers to emulate Jesus Christ, who put prayer and faith as the cornerstones of His ministry while on earth.
“On two occasions, we were told that before He did miracles, He prayed! That was the way Jesus did it,” Pastor Taiwo noted in the message he titled “Prayer and Faith.”
While admitting that many Christians shortchange themselves by not taking advantage of the power of praying in faith, the cleric warned that such a situation might give room for challenges to fester.
Cultivating the boldness to declare God’s Word over any issue, the clergyman told the congregants, is achieved when you key into the will of God for humanity. “Because your speaking will produce results,” he added.
