Fathers are very important in our world today. On Father’s Day, we celebrate the blessing of fatherhood. Be it by birth or by taking on the responsibility, the fathers and father figures in our lives deserve our admiration and our prayers and our support. Here are sites for our Father’s to encourage them and support them.
When men pray is an online prayer ministry powered by the Holy Spirit through Pastor Chukwu, an Assistant Pastor in House of Refuge Lagos, Nigeria. As a father, if at anytime you are in need of prayers, this is a good place to go.
Gen. 1:26 says ‘And God said, let Us make man in Our image…and let them have dominion.’ This is the anchor scripture of the Discovery for Men and it depicts the vision of the outreach Ministry to men as divinely received by Pastor Taiwo Odukoya, the senior pastor of Fountain of Life Church, Ilupeju, Lagos, who is the President of the ministry.
Pastor Taiwo Odukoya, since his days as a Petroleum Engineer, with the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), fervently believes that the prosperity of nations begins in the homes of its people and the prosperity of the homes depends on the prosperity of men (spirit, soul and body) as the heads of the homes. He also believes that the prosperity of men is tied to the prosperity of their souls, which begins with a genuine encounter with God through His Son, Jesus Christ. Pastor Taiwo believes that when a man encounters Christ, he is empowered to serve his family, community, workplace and nations as a servant leader.
