FOREWORD BY THE G.O.
Glory, honour and adoration to the most high, ever faithful, ever living God that answers prayers, who has made it possible for us to witness another edition of the victory month. We give him praise for all the testimonies we have heard in the previous editions of the program and how He continues to sustain his church; causing it to wax stronger and stronger!
Beloved, this edition of the Victory month is the due season from heaven to receive fresh power from on high. In this last days, God is pouring out his spirit as he has promised in Joel 2:28-29 “ And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit”.
This outpouring of the Spirit is a fresh breath from heaven which will empower you for an unending victory in all areas of life. Whatever area of your spiritual and physical life where you are weak or defeated, under this program; you will have absolute victory. Maybe you have a long standing problem which has defied all solutions; as you pray in this program, they will fall like the wall of Jericho in Jesus Name. Get ready! Your trials will become triumphs, your test will become a testimony. When that power came upon little boy David, he knocked out Goliath. By the anointing of the Holy Ghost, I prophesy that every symbolic goliath that may be against you; shall fall in the name of Jesus.
Power is what produces willingness. Psalms 110:3 “Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: thou hast the dew of thy youth. Willingness to serve God, serve one another and the body of Christ. Power produces selfless service. Willingness to do God’s will at all times.Nothing else and nothing less. I see that power coming upon you under the umbrella of this program in Jesus name.
It is time for us to move to the next level of church growth in every positive dimension. Deuterenomy1:6 “The LORD our God spake unto us in Horeb, saying, Ye have dwelt long enough in this mount: No matter the size of the assembly where you are, it is not big enough, when you consider the amount of people perishing daily and heading to a Christless eternity. Power produces a desire for growth; when it came upon the gathering at the upper room – the church exploded in growth, five thousands souls were added to the church in a single day. The power from on high will galvanize us into action, profitable evangelism and genuine conversions will be evident.
God is ready to answer us, the question is; are we ready to truly pray? Prayers that God will answer must come from a repented heart, our prayers must be accompanied with faith. A doubtful heart cannot please God. We must not just mouth the words in empty routine, but engage our whole being in the prayer. Our minds must not be empty or wandering but be aligned with what our mouth is saying. As we do this, we will be birthed into another level of encounters and experience with the Lord.
Beloved, as you go through this program, identify those areas where the Holy Spirit wants you to make adjustments in your life. Act on those things and this will be your best victory month prayer yet.
May the good Lord grant all the petitions of your heart.

Victory month in GOFAMINT is not just a programme, it is a divine appointment! How does one secure a divine appointment? Whenever a Christian or a group of believers decide to meet with God at any given time or place, then the decision becomes an appointment with God. Even when they have not consciously or official applied for any audience with God, they’ve already secured an appointment (Mal. 3:16). This shows us how much God loves us and how much He delights and desires to have fellowship with His children.
The Lord God Almighty decided to make GOFAMINT Assembly as His secret place where He will be present, ready, willing and waiting to hear and answer the petitions, supplications, intercessions and crying of His beloved children throughout this hallowed month of January.
It is going to be a special and extra-ordinary event, exercise and experience this year. He is ready to deliver, to bless, to heal, to save, to promote and to provide. No serious member of the church should miss out of the daily delivery of miracles coming in answer to prayers as the saints storm the throne grace in the “effectual, fervent prayer of the righteous that availeth much” (James 5: 16).
The world in which we live is complicated and mysterious. There are many unseen forces and factors that are involved in what happened to us on daily basis. Whereas life problems cannot be solved only with natural means.
Some of our unbeliever counterparts’ in the world know this and they go extra mile to seek demonic powers to solve their problems. Although this is forbidden of believers. We cannot and must not seek demonic powers. Because it is the surest and quickest way to get to hell. (l Cor. 10:20). Not to worry, there is a greater power which has been provided by God which is available through Jesus Christ, our Lord (Matt. 28: 18). This power is abundantly available (Eph. 3:20). Through it, we can do and do (Phil. 4:13). This enormous and awesome power can be tapped for our benefits through prayers.
God has helped and inspired us to prepare the daily prayers and outlines with a view to meeting the needs of everyone of us for absolute victory and breakthrough for a desired result. Every faithful participant shall be delivered, enthroned and glorified.
Much prayer bring much power.
Little prayer bring little power.
No prayer bring no power.
THE THEME THIS YEAR IS: POWER FOR VICTORIOUS LIVING, SERVICES AND CHURCH GROWTH.
It is a theme with a focus. In it, we shall receive power to propel us forward and our lives and church shall not remain the same again.
What a friend we have in Jesus
All grief and sorrow to bears
What a priviledge to carry
Everything to God in prayer
Welcome on board into the ship with Jesus and for miracles.
