Bible Reading: Hebrews 11:6

Memory Verse: ...God exists and that He rewards those who [earnestly and diligently] seek Him. Hebrews 11:6 (AMP)

Pastor Jerry Eze may have become an internet phenomenon, but his fame is rather accidental. He had started livestreaming hoping to inspire his congregation when the pandemic shut down all church services and attendance at his fledgling ministry. Initially, it wasn’t a goal to reach the world. During the peak of Covid, there was a palpable fear everywhere and he noticed that a lot of his church members were very scared of coming around the church. So, every morning, together with his wife he comes online, spreading encouragement to people.

He just wanted to speak hope. Pastor Eze’s daily messages of encouragement later morphed into a daily online prayer network every weekday on YouTube and other video-sharing services. The live streams proved a hit and in its third year, Pastor Eze’s YouTube channel has over 880,000 subscribers as at the time of this publication, and his broadcasts have garnered more than 122 million views over a three-year period, according to figures from his channel. Viewers from the UK and the US jointly make up 25% of his live streams on YouTube, with more than one million views from the UK and over 700,000 views from the US between July 20 and August 16, 2022, according to figures from the platform.

Nigeria has the highest with over two million viewers. His broadcasts are also viewed in other African nations and countries such as Italy, Germany, Canada, France, Spain, Ireland, and the Netherlands, the chart showed. Pastor Eze is now based in the Nigerian capital Abuja and his church has expanded beyond Nigeria to include branches in the UK, US and Canada. “People all over the world are accustomed to waking up and finding Pastor Jerry online,” Eze says. “It’s like a virus that has come to stay.” Young pastors who think you must go diabolical for the world to hear you should learn from Pastor Jerry. Stay true to your calling and God will surely announce you to the world. Pastor Jerry Eze is indeed an evidence of whom God has shown mercy. The testimonies of healing and miracles are testament to the strange acts of God.

Quote: There is no limit to how God can lift a man who serves Him selflessly.

Prophetic Decree: May your work for the Lord come as a memorial altar unto him, in Jesus name.

1. O Lord, please help me with a genuine motive to serve you selflessly.

3. I reject vain glory, in Jesus name.

4. O Lord, remember my acts of Christian service and sacrifices, and bless me today, in Jesus name.
