“And Abraham called the name of the place, The-Lord-Will-Provide; as it is said to this day, “In the Mount of the Lord it shall be provided.” (Gen 22:14)

This is our first prophetic prayer meeting this year. This is our new prophetic season. Last year we harvested. Now we are ready to plant new seeds. God gave me a word for His people: “You shall have an encounter with Jehovah Jireh”. Amen!


We read from Genesis 22, the encounter between Abraham, Isaac and Jehovah Jireh.

Jehovah Jireh is God the Provider. The word Jireh has two meanings: To see visions or to experience prophetic blessings.  The second meaning is to Provide. The word ‘provide’ is defined as this:  to make available, to supply something needed or to be able to afford something. For example, I may be able to buy biscuits. But I am not able to buy a plot of land. This is to see the different levels of revelation of Jehovah Jireh.

God does not change, but we do. We prayed for a clearer revelation of God as Provider. Man can never be called a provider. Man worships God and works the little he can work. Then God provides! He gives what no man can give. I am talking about a life style of miracles, of healing, deliverance and supply that no man can do.


We then shared the story of George Muller.  This is a very good example of a sinner saved by grace, a man of faith, who had an intimate walk with God, Jehovah Jireh. Nothing else can explain his success. We pray that our faith increases too!



George Muller (1805-1898) was a German man who had a great ministry in England in the 19th century. As a young man he was very reckless. He stole, lied and lived a prodigal life. But the Spirit of God arrested him and miraculously, he became saved. He went to England but could not speak English. He became a pastor there. He married a godly woman of faith just like him. They decided that they will never beg for money or food. They will only pray. God alone knew their needs. The following are some of his quotes:

“I want to move men by prayer alone”

“If you expect great things from God, He shall give you great things”

“Praise God always! I praise Him when He sent 10 cents and when He sent 10 millions”


He built seven orphanages near Bristol. At the beginning his faith was small. It was hard for him to trust God for $5. But as he applied his faith daily, it increased with time. Faith needs exercise to grow. He trusted God for provision for thousands of children. Millions of dollars passed thru his hands. God always provided for all their needs. When God told him to start building the orphanages he had only 50 cents in his pocket. When he finished building them he spent at least $7, 500,000. This amount was then, 200 years ago. Now it is much more. Once he said there was no food at all to give to the children. Calmly, he told them to sit at the tables, to pray and by faith to thank God for the provision. They did. Immediately they heard a noise outside. A truck that was delivering bread to a store broke down just in front of their gate. The driver gave them all the bread. This is just an example of supernatural supply. This is the work of Jehovah Jireh!


At last, in memory of Andre Crouch, another great man of God, we sang his song To God be the glory!


“To God be the glory

To God be the glory

To God be the glory

For the things He has done

With His blood, He has saved me

With His power, He has raised me.

To God be the glory

For the things he has done


Just let me live my life

And let it be pleasing, Lord to Thee

And should I gain any praise,

Let it go to Calvary”


In Christ I declare:

This year I shall have an encounter with God, Jehovah Jireh!

I shall surely testify of His supernatural Provision!

To God be the glory!

In Jesus name

    A young man, a brother in Christ who attends our church came to see me yesterday. He was very excited and happy! He said that he was in the prophetic Saturday class and he believed 100% that he will have an encounter with Jehovah Jireh.
    This is his story: He was attending a Private University near Port Hacourt. He reads Physiology. He did two years but his parents died and he had no money to continue. He applied for a deferment. Two years have passed since then but he could not go back to school because he had no money. Yesterday a miracle happened…one of his friend’s mother called him to her house. She asked why is he not in school. He explained why. Then she asked for his bank account number. He went home. One hour later she paid the school fees for the first term. She promised to pay for the second term soon. Another ‘uncle’ gave him money for ‘transport’. This money he went back to school. He gave all glory to God. Me too, I give all glory to God, Jehovah Jireh!
