Our Lord Jesus Christ taught us to seek first the kingdom of God, subscribing to all its demands and that all other things that others are dying to get shall be added to us Matt. 6:33.
Praying for souls to be saved and established in the faith is one vital way to seeking first the kingdom of God – Isa. 66:7-8/Matt. 9:38.
Jesus taught us to pray down the kingdom of God as a priority in our prayer life – Matt. 6:9-13.
Jesus also said that prayer and fasting is a spiritual secret investment, which is always rewarded in the open – Matt. 6:6/18.
As we all know, a praying church is a growing church and a growing church is a praying church – Ezek. 36:37/Acts 6:4-7.
This is because it takes prayer to command church growth and it takes prayer to keep the church growing.
And this is why prayer has proved to be the life-wire or the breath of every living, dynamic and growing church – – Matt. 16:18/Lk. 11:21-22/ls. 66:7-8.
The following testimonies are pointers to the rewards that accrue to us through praying kingdom-focused prayers, that is, interceding for kingdom-advancement and church growth related prayers:
A. Supernatural Turnaround!
“Since the beginning of the Wonder-Double Prophetic Agenda, I engaged in serving God faithfully and rigorously by praying for souls to be established in the Kingdom. Meanwhile my husband was nowhere to be found and as a result, I became a single parent with two girls in the secondary school. Being a casual staff at my place of work I struggled to make ends meet. During one of the services in June 2015, I heard from God’s Servant that serving God pays the most. So I engaged fully and told my God that as I served Him. He should service my needs. God heard my cry and intervened. At my place of work, I was confirmed as a regular staff with salary increment, which is enough to pay the school fees of my two daughters for the whole year in school. We live in a rented apartment but now, I have enough money to purchase my own land and build my own house. Furthermore, I am now debt-free. Indeed, I have seen the reality of Matthew 6:33 and Revelation 22:12 fulfilled in my life, as a result of being focused on God. I give all the glory to Him!”- Josephine Okwisa
B. Supernatural Breakthroughs!
“I joined this Commission with my family in November 2013 when things were almost at a standstill. Although we had engaged the prayer altar and devoured some of Bishop’s books, it seemed the more I prayed the stiffer things became. However, I refused to give up. When the midst of the year Wonder Double Agenda was declared I decided to re-position myself and dive into it.
l engaged the prayer altar for the salvation of souls and the advancement of the Kind of God and for the first time in a couple of years thing began to change. From then on, I began to experience supernatural turnaround in my finances. The debt that was choking me was cancelled, accommodation issue was resolved and numerous doors of increase were opened to me. My wife, who had respiratory issues for about two decades and couldn’t go for two days without medication was miraculously healed. All these happened because we keyed into Matthew 6:33! My household now engages in daily prayers for souls and for the Church, Matthew 6:33 is a revelation that cannot be taken from us. I passionately share with whoever is interested, that the greatest key to accessing the blessedness of God’s Kingdom is soul winning. I give all the glory to the God of Wonder Double that performs whatever He says! – — Uchenna Anikpe
C. Dramatic Turnaround!
“As instructed by God’s Servant, Bishop David Oyedepo, I have faithfully engaged in Kingdom focused prayers and in response to this, within this short period of time, God has confirmed His Word. God has miraculously written off my debts, my business has experienced a dramatic turnaround and my spiritual life has been remarkably revived. Finally, this month, we are moving into our own house. I have come to testify to the glory of the Lord in my life. Matthew 6:33 works — Dominion Esechie
D. 12-Year Diabetes Healed Via Kingdom Advancement Prayers!
“For 12 years, I suffered from diabetes. Due to this ailment, I injected myself with insulin daily. When the 21-day prayer and fasting for 2016 started, I purposed to engage in Kingdom advancement prayers daily for two hours, Sometimes, I found myself praying for five hours. I also decided that I will not inject myself with insulin again Furthermore, I have been using the 2016 Winners Personalized Prophetic Declarations daily
After one week only. I am now totally healed from diabetes because I have not injected myself with insulin. Rather, I am very strong and healthy. This has never happened to me in the past
Secondly, I was pursuing a degree course but deferred it due to lack of fees. However, on Friday, January 15, 2016, 1 received a letter from an organization I had applied to, approving full scholarship all through my university education. Thirdly, I had a challenge of paying school fees for my child because I lost everything after converting to Christianity from Islam. Amazingly it was also settled. I give God all the glory!” — Pamela W.
E. Miracle Job!
“When Wonder Double Agenda was declared in 2015, I made up my mind to take advantage of the golden opportunity. I said to myself that I would pray 5 hours daily so that Wonder-Double can be fulfilled; which I did. God also gave me a Covenant Prayer partner, who we engaged together in daily prayers at our Zonal centre. As the Bishop kept re-echoing that our reward mentality should come alive because God isn’t looking for who to use but who to bless; I got more assured and kept engaging relentlessly. During the last phase of the Prophetic season, we increased the prayer tempo, to thrice a day. Then, God showed up in my life! Without seeing me at all, an organisation I had earlier applied to for job sent some tests to me which served as my interview. However, we were still engaging in prayers after July 26 for the salvation and establishment of souls. That week, I got a call to resume in Abuja with one of the most reputable organizations in the country with all the awesome accompanying benefits! I have returned to give all the glory to the God of my Father, Bishop David Oyedepo!” — Ade-Adedeji
F. Miracle Conception Via Kingdom Engagement
“In October 2015, I participated in the Wonder-Double Prophetic Agenda phase 2, but I concentrated more on praying for myself, because I have been believing God for the fruit of the womb for three years then but at the end of everything nothing happened
This year 2016, I heard testimonies of people who said they forgot about themselves and concentrated on Kingdom advancement prayers and got amazing results. So, I decided to follow their foot step by forgetting about myself, but wholeheartedly and passionately concentrated in praying for souls and Gods kingdom. Praying for souls became a burden in my heart. I prayed until I knew God has heard me, because whenever I heard testimonies of salvation I told myself ‘I prayed exactly about this.
I began the prayers in February 15, 2016 when the Operation By All Means Prophetic Agenda began. By March 6, 206 I was confirmed pregnant, and the result indicated I got pregnant on the 29th of February 2016. I am still in shock of God’s acts and speed. Indeed, Matt 6:33 works. God has given me my first quantum leap blessings. I am blessed to be a part of this ministry and grateful for the privilege to work for God. It has turned my life around. Thank You Jesus” —- Sandra La
G. Marital Restoration
I believed God for the restoration my inariage for 8 years although I became a Winner in 2012
In 2016, I participated in outreaches for 4 days in a week and also engaged in Kingdom advancement prayers. Four weeks into my Kingdom stewardship, I had an encounter from Genesis 2:18 and my husband started showing signs of reconciliation. Miraculousty, we finally reconciled in May. 2016. The year of From Glory to Glory has truly answered to his name in my life! Truly Matthew 6: 33 works. I give God all the glory!” — Mrs. Helen U.
Therefore, everyone should expect his or her own testimonies as kingdom-focused prayers become our lifestyle.
Jesus is Lord!
