THE PRAYER/INTERCESSORY MINISTRY
"These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication..."
Pastor Zoe Obinna Ogugua
(Brother-In-Charge of the Intercessory Prayer Ministry)
The Bride Assembly Church has ten well-organized and effective prayer groups. Each of them is led by Holy Ghost-filled volunteer members who are dedicated servants of God. This group is the power behind the scene in the awesome testimonies of wonderful works of God that are recorded daily at the Bride Assembly Church.
Basically these prayer groups are intercessory in function. They hold meetings on particular chosen dates; some weekly, others daily, with fervent fasting and praying for the pastors, ministers and other members of the church. They also intercede vigorously for world peace. Intercession is round the clock at the Bride Assembly Church.
"And when the voice of trumpet sounded long and waxed louder and louder, Moses spoke, and God answered him by a voice" Exodus 19:19.
The battle cry in intense prayer and supplications undertaken by these prayer groups translate into great harvest of souls in the field by the pastors and the evangelists.
"Continue in prayer and watch in the same thanksgiving; withal praying for us that God would open unto us a door of utterance to speak the mystery of Christ..." Col. 4:2-3.
God's grace is practically evident in all segments of the ministry as spiritual gifts, healing and deliverance, miraculous business breakthroughs, marriage galore, fruits of the womb, gainful employment, admission of students into local and international institutions of learning, etc are all manifested.
The groups' strength is built on love and care for one another. The burden of one is the burden of all. Numerical strength is between 20 and 200. Members are selected and/or admitted purely on character. One must be filled with the Holy Ghost to qualify. It is exciting to know that the key ministers and Heads of Departments are all products of these prayer groups.
