Monday 11 April – Father, Thank You!
Father, we thank you for the lives of all the men and women of OLCC. (1 Tim 2:1). Thank you for the many boys and girls who have been born and natured here. (Eph 6:4). We are all your workmanship created for good works alone. (Eph 2:10).
Thank you for the many marriages and families that have been formed or secured or sustained and developed here. We continue to hold marriage in honour, esteem it worthy, precious and especially dear. (Heb 13:4).
Thank you for the miracles, healings and provision that we have experienced over the years. We remember the miracle of Jojo, Jamiel and Daniel. The fact that all of these boys are alive is a testimony of your goodness and your mercy. (Lam 3:22-33).
We thank you for the members of our church family who have finished their earthly race. We remember Earl Foster, Charles Adjei and Thelma Ogunyemi. We know that they are with you now, in a place which is far better and we look forward to seeing them again when we have finished our race. (2 Tim 4:7-8, Phil 1:23).
Thank you for keeping us together as a church family. Thank you for staying the hand of envy, division, strife and selfish ambition. These are all the works of the enemy and we continue to stand against these in Jesus' name. We are eager to maintain the unity that the Spirit has given us. Your peace is the bond that glues us together. (James 3:14-16, Eph 4:3).
Thank you for the innovative programmes, events and activities that we have had the opportunity to execute over the years. These have helped in our personal development and have increased the effectiveness of our service to you and others. (Eccl 10:10, Prov 4:7, Prov 24:3-4;2 Peter 3:18).
We thank you for events like Healing School with Emily Dotson, Weekends Away, MyTime, and Divine Exchange. We remember Faith Impact Seminar, Winterfest, Our Christmas Parties and more recently our Christmas Party for the Elderly,Street Party, LinkingLives and our Off-2-Uni event.
