“Praise and worship are the highest forms of prayer,” says Pastor Chris

Starting today, Monday the 27th of March 2023 from 6:00 pm (GMT +1) is the first day of ‘Unending Praise’ with Pastor Chris Oyakhilome. You can be part of the global phenomenon to offer your sacrifice of praise in the sanctuary.

What is Unending Praise?

The Pastor Chris Live Unending Praise, which was held last year 2022, the ‘Year of the Gathering Clouds‘, in the month of June 2022, was a month-long, round-the-clock chain of unending praise and worship to the Lord, with Spirit-filled songs from LoveWorld. It was the most amazing event to date, and set the stage for this next phase, beginning today, Monday, March 27th, 2023,  and running for a full year.

Praise is a form of worship

Pastor Chris has gone to lengths to explain the difference between praise and worship.

The Man of God has given us many words of wisdom and inspiration on the topic of praise, saying: “Praise is a form of worship. Offering sacrifices of praise produces power! All your needs are met through the active power of God’s glory working inside you.”

He goes on to explain in detail: “There’s a clear difference between praise and worship. Praise requires no consciousness, but worship does. When you praise God, you thank Him and extol His majesty. However, in worship, much more than extolling Him, there’s a communion and relationship. It’s drinking together—a special kind of recognition between the “blesser” and the blessed, the greater and the lesser. The greater one receives the lesser one in His place. This is only possible with humans.

That’s why, for instance, we’re not permitted to worship angels. Though they’re great and powerful, God, in Christ Jesus, has raised us to the place of His Son, who’s higher than angels. We’re one with Christ, who’s greater than angels, and we’re therefore higher than angels. This is what the Bible teaches. As He (Jesus) is, so are we in this world (1 John 4:17).

We’re joint heirs with Him: “The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs; heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ…” (Romans 8:16-17). This doesn’t make us co-equal with Him, but it describes our inseparable union with Him (1 Corinthians 6:17). He’s the head, and we’re His body (Colossians 1:18). We’re in union with the Father. Glory to God!”

The importance of words

According to Pastor Chris, words define a man’s life, and his value as a man is no better than his words. The character of your words is the character of your personality, therefore watch your words, Pastor explains.

The Holy Spirit praying through you is one of the most important and effective ways of praying.

In Revelation 7:11-12 it says, ‘And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God, meaning, blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honor, and power, and might, be unto our God forever and ever.

At our times of prayer today, we’ll be thanking the Lord lavishly for the victories of the Church, and His glory and favor that covers the nations. Get ready to join a year of ‘The Pastor Chris Live Unending Praise’ on http://pastorchrislive.org, and http://lmam360.com.
