A HUMBLE BIRTHDAY PRAYER
A HUMBLE BIRTHDAY PRAYER FOR OUR BELOVED AND PRECIOUS DADDY ON HIS GOLDEN JUBILEE IN THE LORD
Our Heavenly Father,
The great, powerful and glorious God, whom at His words, Heaven and Earth were made.
The God of Daddy Hezekiah, who established this great church, Living Christ Mission, through His anointed prophet, Daddy Hezekiah.
O Father, we, Your children in Living Christ Mission thank You very immensely and greatly exalt You for a year like this as we celebrate the 50 stainless years of service to God and humankind, of Your son, His Grace, The Most Rev. Prof. Daddy Hezekiah. We thank You also for giving us the privilege to be here to witness it in Your holy presence and in the presence of all the Holy Hosts of Heaven. We bow before You with fear and trembling and say thank You so much in Jesus Christ’s name, Amen.
Merciful and compassionate Father, even though we are not worthy to be in Your presence this day, yet we cannot keep our mouth, soul and body from praising You for all that You have done for our Daddy these past 50 years. Even eternity is not enough to praise, glorify and honour You. We cannot keep ourselves from professing our love for You. Beloved Father, our Daddy is saying a big “thank you indeed” to You; his two lovely children - Princess Chukwunazaekpere and Princess Onyinyeomachukwu - are saying ‘there is no one like You’. We, the Church, say, “daalu”, “Imela” and “take all the glory” in Jesus Christ’s name, Amen.
Faithful Father, hiding in the precious Blood of Jesus Christ, Your church is here to humbly pray for our precious, holy and beloved Daddy, and also give our humble blessings to him on this great and special year. It is not because we are worthy to do so but because he is a father indeed. We remember and recount all the wonderful miracles that You have performed through Your great prophet, Daddy Hezekiah. You manifested Your greatness, power, authority and dominion through him in so many ways. You proved that You are the One who sent him.
Indeed, the devil and his cohorts fought mightily against Daddy and his children, but through Daddy’s prayers they were conquered, exposed, shamed, disgraced and put to rout hence, many children of God were saved from death and destruction. Even the weakest trembling souls were not snatched from Your hands by the devil.
It has been a years of terrible battles between Daddy and the kingdom of darkness and our Daddy has always come forth more than victorious. Again, when the devil tried to sneak into the prestigious Hezekiah University to cause confusion and wreak havoc, Daddy detected it, out and shattered all his plans and defeated him. Today, Hezekiah University is freed completely from all forms of immorality and indiscipline. Thank You, Lord, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
O Lord, You alone are our Daddy’s strength, sustenance, provider and consolation. You delight so much in him and love him so much because he loves and delights in You.
You make haste to answer him anytime he calls because he trusts in You and obeys You. Hence, You have lifted him higher and higher, above everything that is created in this generation, that is why we are so proud of him and so glad to be his children. You have also given him two wonderful children who are real children of encouragement and succour to him. We do not forget a few others who are also of immense help to him in this ministry and for all of them, we say thank You, Lord, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
Therefore, wonderful and mighty Jehovah, we come with one voice to bless our Daddy more and more such that the inflow of blessings will never cease but overtake him in everything he does in Jesus’ name, Amen.
We pray Thee to give him sound and good health. Please, may You stretch forth Your powerful hands and touch his bones, flesh and joints such that he will be renewed like a new born baby in Jesus’ name, Amen. He does not rest nor sleep but keeps awake fighting against the forces that are after our lives. Please, dear Lord, keep on renewing his strength and empowering him for this mission to the glory of Your name in Jesus’ name, Amen.
We also commit his two beloved children into Your powerful hands and pray that You cover them with the precious Blood of Jesus so that no evil eye will see them. May You keep them in Your loving hands and care. May You, Lord, fulfil all the purpose for which You raised them to serve You in Living Christ Mission. Empower them highly with righteousness and holiness. Clothe them with Your glorious beauty, honour, royalty, wisdom, authority and power in Jesus’ name, Amen.
Father, raise more burden bearers for our Daddy. As we prepare for his Golden Jubilee celebration (his 50th birthday), we plead that You raise great men and women who have the fear of God to assist him in his ministry, those who are after the kingdom of God and not after material gains. Please, O Lord, remember our precious Daddy because the challenges in his life are so much.
Compassionate Father, we pose serious problems and are burdens to our dear Daddy. Please God, change us, renew us spiritually and help us to grow into righteousness and holiness so that his work will be easier for him. We give our mouths free rein for evil, and our tongues frames deceit. We sit and speak against our brothers and slander our own mother’s son. By so doing, we contribute to the restlessness of Daddy Hezekiah through these disobedience and bad behaviours. We fight one another, engage in worldly fashions and lifestyles and still remain very incorrigible. Hence, we indirectly expose ourselves to the attacks of the devil because our lifestyles are against the teachings and directives of Your holy prophet, Daddy Hezekiah.
We believe that You are here in this place. Father, please, look into our rottenness and wretchedness and cleanse us from all our iniquities so that we can lessen the burdens on our father and become useful to him. Some of us who started this ministry since its inception in 1983, at times, are problematic to Your Anointed Prophet. Please, help us O Lord and hearken to our cries today in Jesus’ name, Amen.
O Lord, increase the power, strength, might and authority of our precious Daddy.
May all his heart desires for his children, his family and the Church at large be fulfilled.
May this day and onwards be filled with happiness, peace, progress and successes in Jesus’ name, Amen.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow him all the days of his life and he shall dwell in the house of the Lord, forever and ever, Amen.
The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make His face to shine upon you; and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up His countenance upon you and give you peace.
The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all in Jesus’ name-Amen.
