The Living Faith Church Worldwide,  aka, Winners’  Chapel has experienced an exponential church multiplication by the addition of more than one hundred and twenty-five thousand new members in 6 weeks.
In order to keep the move of the Spirit alive, the  church has extended its  one hour(5:30am -6:30) daily prayer program, the “Covenant Hour of Prayer ” from 5days to 6days, Monday through Saturday.

 

Bishop David Oyedepo,President of the Church, said,”Most  moves of the Spirit of God all through church history had been short-lived,  because God’s people did not take responsibility to keep the fire burning.
  But the truth is that, there are things we must do to keep the move of God alive in our midst. As it is written, ”And the fire upon the altar shall be burning in it; it shall not be put out: and the priest shall burn wood on it every morning, and lay the burnt offering in order upon it; and he shall burn thereon the fat of the peace offerings. The fire shall ever be burning upon the altar; it shall never go out”. (Leviticus 6:12-13).
He  illustrated, ”For example, we discover that after Pentecost, the early church engaged daily in prayers, supplications and intercessions. (Acts 2:46-47/Acts 3:1).
“The devil attempted to stall the move, the Holy Ghost inspired the apostles to recognize the place of prayer  and the ministry of the word in keeping the fire of the revival burning in the church.(Acts 6:4-7).”
The special 7 week  outreach took place in all the church locations  across the globe. The number here presented is for the Faith Tabernacle, Ota, alone.

Church growth statistics   back in  2010  showed that every day, more than 115,000 people accept Christ as their personal Savior.
On September 1857 Jeremiah Lanphier, a businessman, began a series of prayer meetings in New York. …Soon a common mid-day sign on business premises read, ”We will re-open at the close of this prayer meeting”. By May, (about 8months later ), 50,000 of New York 800,000 people were new converts.
It is expected that news of this revival will spread  fast to set on fire a commitment and dedication for soul saving prayers and actions with the infallible expectation that God would work in like manner elsewhere.
