I first of all want to appreciate the first senior pastors of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) Moscow Russia Mission, Pastor (Eng’r.) Idowu Ogunlana Assistant Pastor (Dr.) Victoria Ogunlana for obeying the call of God to plant and establish the first parish of the RCCG Mission in Moscow Russia.

I also deeply appreciate my first provincial pastors, presently serving in RCCG Europe mainland Region 2, Pastor Pastor (Mrs) Femi Olorunfemi. I appreciate them for their mentorship and friendship.

FORWARD

 

 

The subject of prayer is of an all-encompassing, exciting and sometimes a curious nature. Most believers are aware of prayer: the potency, the power, the productivity etc., but very few understand it, talkless of maximising the opportunity there in and taking advantage of its ability. It is simply because people do not understand the scope of prayer and many have wrong perspective of the prayer.

 

For believers in particular, prayer is not only essential but critical to our nature and existence. Men began to call on God in Genesis 4:26,” And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: then began men to call upon the name of the LORD” as a result of the fallen nature of man. Therefore, any attempt to unravel this subject of prayer to bring understanding to it must be celebrated and applauded.

 

Dr Ayeni, through his own life and relationship with God and waiting on the Holy Spirit has brought a very fresh perspective to this subject of prayer. His thoughts are very clear, the revelations are profound, deep and yet simple to grasp. I could see that God has through the Holy Spirit taught him deep things to make prayers easy to understand, easy to engage with, easy to grow in and easy to pass on to others. 

 

This book, “Exploring the power of prayer” will surely help us to grasp the power that truly lies in prayer. It comes from a practitioner, a praying man who is also quite practical with it.

 

As a student of prayer and passionate intercessor, I have found “Exploring the power of prayer” to be a resource material, teaching guide, prayer manual and simple practical learning material to guide even the most uneducated in the place of prayer. You will find in this book, 3 facets of prayer which will help you pray better. Dr Ayeni also took time to explore the “Lord’s Prayer” in a most unusual manner bringing fresh insight. As you read and go through the pages of this book, I can personally guarantee you will be blessed and re-fired for Kingdom exploits even in the place of prayer.   

 

This book will encourage you; challenge you and birth enthusiasm and confidence in you to pray. It comes highly recommended. Go on let us pray. Luke 18:1, “And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint”
