By Pastor Andrew Bawa
"So it was, that while he was serving as priest before God in the order of his division, according to the custom of the priesthood, his lot fell to burn incense when he went into the temple of the Lord. And the whole multitude of the people was praying outside at the hour of incense. Then an angel of the Lord appeared to him, standing on the right side of the altar of incense. And when Zacharias saw him, he was troubled, and fear fell upon him. But the angel said to him, “Do not be afraid, Zacharias, for your prayer is heard; and your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son, and you shall call his name John." Luke 1: 8-13 (NKJV)

Favour: means unmerited blessings, undeserved , preferred, acceptance, grace, mercy. Favour is when you don't earn or work for it but it came.
Faith: is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen.
Fear not: means that what you have been praying for has been answered by God.
Angel means: sent one, messenger.
When God sends you as a pastor, you are referred to as the angel of the house that you are pastoring. There might be one particular area that seem like God hasn't answered; that you have been praying about now it has been answered. Your prayer has been answered! What you are expecting and waiting for has been sent.
The forgotten prayer that you prayed at a point has provoked God to answer as you pray kingdom prayers. Whatever happens from now, favour follows you. You favour that has been forgotten and not manifested coming out. What you have forgotten about, God will bring it to you. God will bring back the things that you were excepting.
As long as there is expectation, faith never dies.
⁃ Father let the heavens be open concerning my case tonight.

⁃ Lord as your word comes tonight, let it bring light into every area of my life for the rest of this month.
⁃ Every enemy/ satanic agent going after every prophetic word for my life, let the fire of the Holy Ghost answer for me.
⁃ As this fasting and prayers come to an end today, I cover every word with the blood of Jesus.
⁃ Lord, let your blood cover the seed/ egg of my destiny.
⁃ Life will emanate in NGWC from east, west, north and south.
⁃ Everyone that is connected to this commission, father we command life in them.
