Ask the Lord to give us the heathen for our inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the Oyo State beginning from Bodija for our possession. Pray that God will cause us to be a going Church and not a sitting Church.

Pray that the Holy Spirit will reprove and convict the hearts of men and women on Awolowo Avenue and the surrounding communities around our church venue of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment.

Pray against every spot or channel that give men alternatives to attending churches. Decree that all the club houses and beer parlours that serve as gates of hell, where men are overtaken with debauchery, drunkenness, adultery, fornication & all manner of lewd and lustful acts in our community be shut down. Just like Jesus cursed the fig tree, declare that men shall no longer patronise those spots again. (Mark 11:14)
Pray that as we go out to evangelise, the Lord will open the hearts of men to attend to attend to all the words that we speak.
