You are worthy of our praises today
Father Almighty, we just want to bless Your holy name. We want to give You all glory and honour for what You have done for us in the past. Thank You that You are the beginning of the Congress and we know that at the end of it all, in that Congress that is going to be held in heaven, You will also be the Omega, so we worship You. We say Father, accept our worship in Jesus’ name. Tonight, we Your children have gathered just to praise You at the beginning of this very special Holy Ghost Congress, we ask that You will just take all the glory and just let Your name be mightily glorified. Please Lord, during this Congress, even as we pray, we are asking that You will give us wings to fly, in Jesus’ mighty name we have prayed. Amen!
Praise ye the Lord. Hallelujah!
TEXT: JOHN 12
32 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.
PRAISE ARE IN CATEGORIES:
1. THE PRAISE OF SURVIVALS.
In Exodus 15:1-21, Moses led the children of Israel in praising God after they crossed the Red Sea. After they looked behind them and saw all their enemies drowned in the Red Sea.
This is a kind of praise that every believer should offer because the Bible says, ‘if a man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new’.
2. THOSE WHO CAN SAY ‘THANK GOD MY SHAME IS OVER’
In 1 Samuel 2:1-10, When Hannah was praising God, she was saying: ‘Now all those who were mocking me, where are they now? Let them come and see what the Almighty God had done for me. Those who said I can never have a baby of my own.’
This is praise from those who are successful.
3. PRAISE THAT IS OFFERED BY THOSE WHOSE ENEMIES HAVE BECOME THEIR SERVANTS.
By the time this Congress is over, your enemy will become your servant and your shout of hallelujah will rend the heavens.
4. WHEN THE ENEMIES ARE THOROUGHLY HUMILIATED. Acts 16:35-39.
i. By the time this Congress is over, your enemies will beg you.
ii. All those who have made up their minds that they are going to finish you will come and say, ‘we are sorry’
i. During this congress, every prayer we pray for you will be answered by fire.
ii. In the name that is above every other name, your enemy will come back to beg you as you praise him tonight.
5. WHEN YOU DISCOVERED THAT YOUR ENEMIES HAVE DESTROYED THEMSELVES.
2 Chronicle 20:1-23.
I have good news for those of you who are ready to praise God tonight, the One who is called the Lord of Hosts will fight your battles for you and you won't even have to do anything other than just praise Him.
Just praise Him, He is the Lord of hosts, He knows what to do to get you out of trouble. Just praise Him wholeheartedly tonight and watch what He will do.
6. WHEN THE ENEMIES WEALTH IS TRANSFERRED TO YOU. 2 Chronicles 20:24-25.
Get ready for the year that is coming, all of a sudden, you will discover that all those who hate you will become vessels that the almighty God will use to prosper you mightily, He has done it before and He will do it again.
7. PRAISE THAT WILL DEMOLISH EVERY OBSTACLES THAT THE ENEMY MAY PUT IN YOUR WAY. Joshua 6:20-26.
I decree in the name of the One who called me, every force that has been standing against you, even as you shout a big Hallelujah tonight, those forces will be destroyed in Jesus’ name.
Praise the Lord. HALLELUJAH!
8. PRAISE THAT WILL ENSURE YOUR PROMOTION IS PERMANENT.
2 Samuel 6:14-22, 2 Samuel 7:1-16.
I have good news for somebody listening to me, not only will God promote you, not only will God take you very, very, high, you, your children, your grandchildren and your great grandchildren will forever be great because you will praise Him tonight.
9. PRAISE THAT WILL CAUSE YOU TO FLY.
Jesus Christ said in our text, ‘if I be lifted up from the earth, I will draw all men unto me’.
Today, my beloveth, let us praise God like we have never done before. Before tomorrow, you will know deep within you, ‘I am on a higher level now.’
‘I am much higher than what i used to be’.
You will be able to understand the song that we used to sing:
SONG - I am going higher yes I am
You will be going higher each day, going with Jesus to stay.
Going beyond heaven until you are there with Him permanently.
The only one who shouldn't think of praising God at all is the one who refuses to give his life to Jesus Christ.
If you want to join us in the rest of the praise tonight, please, bow your head and call on the Almighty God to save your soul. Talk to the Almighty God, ask Him to be merciful unto you and forgive your sins. Tell Him you will serve Him for the rest of your life. Tell Him you want everything to become new.
PRAYER FOR SALVATION
My Father and my God, I want to say thank You. I want to give You all glory and honour for every soul that You have saved in the past during Congress. Thank You for the souls You are about to save right now. I'm asking Lord that those who have decided right now to surrender their lives to You, please Lord, receive them, save their souls, forgive their sins Lord. Let Your blood wash them clean. Oh Father, please, write their names in the Book of life, receive them into the family of God. Lord, as they join us in praising You tonight, please Lord God Almighty, You will begin to draw them higher and higher in Jesus’ name. Thank You my Father.
Lord, I’m committing Your children; young and old, as we begin to praise You tonight, Father, please, draw us very close to Yourself. Give us wings to fly and we will praise You forever, in Jesus’ mighty name we have prayed. Amen!
