The Bishop of the Lighthouse Chapel International in charge of Central Region, Bishop Jake Godwyll said it was time Christians learnt to pray for their needs and stopped paying men of God for prayer.
“Pray your own prayer in 2014 and stop going round paying prophets to pray for you,” he stated.
Preaching a sermon on Pray So You Do Not Enter Into Temptation to usher in the New Year at the Church in Cape Coast, Bishop Godwyll said the life of a Christian who did not pray was left to chance.
He said a life of prayer was also subjected to the curses of this world including the curse of Adam, Eve and Ham.
Bishop Jake said rather than pay prophets to pray, Christians must develop strong prayer lives to enable them to adjust things spiritually in their favour.
He noted that prayer was an expression of ones personal faith in God and an indication that one had a personal relationship with God which was the basis of everyone’s Christian faith.
He said Christians must learn to pray themselves and believe in their prayer to live victoriously in the new year.
The Church prayed to usher in the New Year and sang praises thanking God to welcome the new year.
