FIC Report (Abia State) – The Cleric and the General Overseer of the kingdom Glory Christian Center, Pastor Dickson Okorafor has called on Christians to always seek God’s wisdom in all they do in life stressing that to lack wisdom is to lack future, destiny and glory because the higher one’s wisdom is, the higher the person soars in life.

Speaking on the topic  “Wisdom for Exceeding Greatness” and taking his scripture from Proverbs 4:7, Pastor Dickson who highlighted on the wisdom of prayer explained that it is wisdom to pray always because it is the avenue through which humanity interacts with divinity for accomplishments in life and a sure way to power and reign in life.

Life according to him becomes strong when you genuinely spend time with God because you are fortified against satanic harassment ,embarrassment and intimidation in life.

The Clergy noted that once you do not pray, whatever you see you take.

He maintained that Christians should seek wisdom for maximum impact and accomplishments in 2023, as everything that lasts in life is predicated on the principle of wisdom.

The Clergyman revealed that the principal requirement for principle result in life is wisdom which is the capital for all life’s expenditure.

He reiterated that wisdom is not gotten from any citadel of learning but age, time and experience as no king reigns in life without wisdom.

“Wisdom is the principal capital needed for principle accomplishments in life”, he said.

On pathways to resultful prayers, he further highlighted that praying in the spirit and prayer and fasting are keys  because when you pray in the spirit you pray in God’s will and enhance answers to prayers.

Describing prayer as a weapon of victory designed by God which enhances spiritual authority, the Clergyman urged Christians to seek God’s face through the pathway of prayer and fasting.
