While meditating before the Easter celebrations, the highly revered clergy Bishop David Oyedepo said, God told him to tell the people to be ready to receive His breathe. 

You remember that the disciples were with Jesus for about three years  and they did not really know him until He breathe on them and their understanding was opened.

Easter Celebration at the Faith Tabernacle, Sango Ota, South West Nigeria, the world’s largest Church burned with the fire of  the core of  Christianity, the power of the resurrection.The message went beyond the well known themes of peace, love, grace etc.
The Bishop said, this is the greatest season in Christianity as it is the validation of the faith.

“To whom also He showed Himself alive after His passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of things pertaining to the kingdom of God”.

Everything in life demands genuine desperation, thirst, and endearing supplication.
This demand  can encountered on the altar of payer and fasting among other things. However, note that we can’t pray to receive the power of resurrection. It is by revelation. We can pray for revelation as we engage in the knowledge of God.
Philippians 3:10.
We must pray and fast to access revelation. It is not what you read. It is a thing you see, "...to know".

It is a thing to know not to beg for.
