Revival programme (by Pastor Kenneth Uchea)

Furthermore, my team and I had a revival programme in one of the jungles in Bayelsa state, in the Niger Delta area of Nigeria. During the 3days programme the churches in that area gathered in a central place. More than a hundred people came together for fellowship. We started with worship and intercessory prayers for souls to be saved and revival to break out in the region and all over the world. The prayer lasted for 2 hours. It was a serous intercessory session. This followed by praises and dancing joyfully from their heart unto the Lord. After the word of God people came out to give their lives to Jesus. During prayers for them, devils cried out of people and they were casted out.
On the 2nd day we had counselling and prayers and much people with different kinds of problem came to be prayed for from l0am-5.30pm, people ignored the heavy rain on that day to get devils out of their lives, God came down so amazingly in his power to minister to them. A lot of people were healed, delivered and saved. There was a remarkable miracle that occurred during the meeting, a little child of a year old that was sick and was taken to various hospitals without solution was healed instantly. The mother of the child got saved, also filled with Holy Spirit, speaking in tongues and on the last day of the revival the woman received a special anointing from God to go for missions. The power of God came on her; she was prophesying concerning a village God wanted her to go and plant a church. Shortly after, the church went to preach in that village she prophesied about and a new church have been planted there.
The climax of the programme was on Sunday when brethren gathered, to fellowship; it was wonderful how the Holy Spirit gave us burden to pray from 9am-1.30pm. While we continued in prayer and worship, the Lord came down mightily, healed a lot of people, filled them with his Spirit with evidence of speaking in tongue, many were revived, restored and anointed for God's work.

In the 2nd week of December 2006, I had a 3 days revival programme in another village in Edo State, theme "In the presence of the Lord" much people were present, we had time of intercessory prayers, ministration of God's word, counselling and prayers. A lot of people were healed, delivered, revived and restored to Christ. There was a particular case that gave me great joy. A brother who backslided 5 years ago was restored back to Christ, I could not hold back my tears when he was testifying of how he backslided and how the devil tortured him with sin, sickness, demonic possession and oppression, he said while he was visiting witch doctors, he became possessed of witch spirit, he said he tried to come back to Christ several times but shame made him to always shift forward his decision to come back to Christ.
He said that sometimes ago he prayed and told God that if there was no hope for him of returning to Christ before the end of this year (2006) that God should take his life latest January (2007). But as God will have it he heard about the revival and came, God delivered, healed and restored his salvation. Before we closed from the meeting he has already started evangelising in the entire village, testifying of what the Lord has done for him.
God proved that we were gathered in his presence by manifesting his power to heal, deliver and restore. We had a wonderful time in God's presence.
