DADDY GO PRAYS FOR PASTOR (Dr) PAUL ENENCHE AND FAMILY
Father, we Thank You on behalf of this family.
We Thank You for the Salvation of their Souls, we Thank You for keeping them in Your Love, we Thank You for Calling them into the work of the Ministry.
We Thank You for the Mighty Things that you have already done and we Thank You for the Mightier Things that You will yet do.
Father, accept our Thanks in Jesus Name.
Father, Please lay Your Mighty Hands on Your Children and anoint them afresh.
Lay Your Hands on these Children too and just do Greater Things through them than they can even dream Possible.
Please Lord Almighty, every areas of their lives, show yourself to be More Than Sufficient.
And Daddy, anytime we hear concerning this family, let it be Good News.
In Jesus Mighty Name we have Prayed – Amen.
Praise the Lord – Hallelujah!
And then you may Please be seated – God Bless You all (Amen).
Like I said during the Dedication Service of this Place (The Glory Dome of Dunamis International Gospel Centre, FCT Abuja); I rejoice from the bottom of my heart because this is an answer to my Prayer.
I rejoice because like my wife (Mummy GO) said to you; my Prayer everyday is that my children will be Greater than I.
Because Greatness is meaningless unless it is Generational!
Abraham is respected today all over the world and in many, many Religions because Abraham was Great, Isaac was “Very Great” and Jacob was “Exceeding Great”
I Thank God that even in my lifetime, I could see this happening.
… So, rejoice with me – Give the Almighty God a great shout of Praise.
I mustn’t forget to say to my son that we are very Proud of you. And I want you to know that we are constantly Praying for you.
It doesn’t matter what the Enemies may try; you will keep on Succeeding – Amen!
So shall it be in Jesus Name – Amen!
The Theme of this our Anniversary is: “Exceeding Abundant Grace”.
And our Bible Text is: 1 Timothy 1: 12-15
- And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who hath enabled me, for that He counted me Faithful, putting me into the Ministry;
- Who was before a Blasphemer, and a Persecutor, and Injurious: but I obtained Mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief.
- And the Grace of our Lord was Exceeding Abundant with Faith and Love which is in Christ Jesus.
- This is a Faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save Sinners; of whom I am Chief.
When they told me the Theme for your Anniversary: “Exceeding Abundant Grace” – I said God have Mercy, only Great People like Paul will think of a Theme like that.
I am not going to try to explain the Theology of such a Theme.
Fortunately, “Bigger Men” are coming later – The Bishops will be here, The Arch-Bishops, The Apostles. But for me, I am a Pastor!
So, I will only speak in the Language of a Pastor, in the Language that “Common People” can understand.
When the Theologians come, they will give you the Big Ones.
- What is Grace?
In the Language of a Mathematician; Grace simply means “Chosen for Help”.
… You don’t deserve the Help but Help comes.
In the Name that is above every other names, from now on: Wherever you go when God want to Help just one fellow, it will be you – Amen.
In Genesis 6:6-8; God decided that He wanted to wipe out the whole world but He choose to Help Noah.
The Bible said that Noah found Grace with God.
In John 5: 2-14; the Bible tells us that there was a Pool at Bethesda and there was a Multitude there – Sick People, People who are Hopeless; they were many.
And an Angel will come once in a Year to stir the Pool – The first Person to get in there is going to be made Whole.
Jesus Christ came there and of all the People there, He chooses only one – The one who had been there for thirty eight (38) Years. He sent to him, He healed him and left the Place.
… Only one Fellow chosen for Help and that Fellow found Grace.
You will find Grace – Amen!
- Then “Abundant Grace”.
That one is not chosen for Help ordinarily; that one is chosen for Promotion.
When you find “Abundant Grace”; it means that of the People around, God decides to choose you for Promotion.
Many atimes, it is Promotion you do not deserve.
I mean you read Genesis 48: 1-end – Joseph brought his sons – Ephraim and Manasseh to his father for Blessings.
Manasseh is the Older and Ephraim is the Younger and Papa’s eyes were a bit dim at that time.
So, Joseph Placed Manasseh where the Right Hand of the father will land and put Ephraim where the Left Hand will land for Blessings.
Because for one reason or the other which the Elders will teach you; there is more Anointing in the Right Hand than on the Left Hand – I can’t tell you why.
But anytime two (2) of you have an opportunity to be Prayed for, put your head where the Right Hand will land – Just collect it first and then we find out the Theological reasons later.
And all of a sudden, Israel crossed his hands – The Right Hand he laid it on the head of the Younger, the left hand on the head of the Elder.
Joseph said: Papa, No, No, No; this Fellow is the Elder, don’t make a mistake.
He (Israel) said that I’m not making a mistake.
That kind of Blessings that you don’t deserve, the Almighty God will give you today – Amen!
In Matthew 17: 1-9 – It is the Story of what happened on the Mount of Transfiguration.
The Lord Jesus Christ brought the twelve (12) Disciples to the bottom of the Mountain and then He said three (3) of them – Peter, James and John, you come along with me while the rest of you stay here.
And He took the three (3) to the Top of the Mountain and was Transfigured before them – They saw what Nobody else has seen before.
When they finished, He said: Don’t tell the others.
The first time that I was in Israel; when we got to the Mount of Transfiguration, it occurred to me that all those who went with Christ – What is the fault of the nine (9) who are left behind that God choose three (3) and just took them up, show them what He wanted to show them and told them don’t tell anyone?
The nine (9) left behind, have not done anything wrong but “Abundant Grace” gave the three (3) of them Promotion.
As the Lord lives, the One I serve; “Unusual Promotion” that you don’t even deserve will be your Portion from now on – Amen.
- But then, let us come to the real Big one – “Exceeding Abundant Grace”.
… This is not just an “Ordinary Grace”; this is not just “Abundant Grace” but Grace that exceeded the Abundant one.
This is what happens when someone is already enjoying “Abundant Grace” and then he blew it, messed up, did something you can’t even imagine.
And then God still looked down and said: Alright, you have messed up, but I will forgive you, I will restore you, I will reinstate you.
You see, the Bible says that when sins abound, Grace much more abound.
I will give you some Simple Examples:
You know David; that boy enjoyed Grace – He enjoyed “Abundant Grace”.
I mean, the day God sent someone to go and appoint a King in his father’s house, the father didn’t even Present him for considerations. The father never thought that he could qualified to be a King.
The Man of God said: We won’t sit down until you bring him – That is Grace.
They brought him, they anointed him in the Presence of his brothers and God just kept on Promoting him until he becomes “Very Great”.
… So Great that he doesn’t have to fight anymore – He had enough People to do his fighting for him
But then came 2 Samuel 11: 1-end – When everybody was fighting, when a King should be at war; David was at home enjoying himself – Wealth has come, Prosperity has come, Power has come.
Then he woke up in the Evening, walk on the Terrace of his house, saw a Woman bathing – Up till now, I don’t know why that Woman was bathing where David could see her; but he saw her.
And one Problem led to another – You know the Story.
The Woman became Pregnant, David tried to cover it up by bringing the husband who was a Soldier (Faithful Soldier), fighting for the Nation.
He (David) brought him home, tried to make him drunk but the Man remained Faithful and wouldn’t go home.
… So, he decided to kill him for being Loyal.
He killed him and then Pretended that he was a very Good King; he brought the Woman in saying: This is how I look after the Widows of my Faithful Soldiers.
And then, we came to 2 Samuel Chapter 12 – Here is David who blew it Big time.
When God sent a Prophet to him and said: Something like this happens in your Kingdom.
He (David) said: Whoever did it is dead.
And there was a “Right Judgement” – You are one!
But it is amazing that as soon as David said that I have sinned; God said that you are Forgiven.
… Ha, Ha; he has not even finished confessing – God said that I have forgiven you.
But that is not even the Big one there.
Later on, a Child born as a result of the Union of David and that terrible Woman, who is an Adulteress of the highest order; that led to the death of her husband.
A Child was born and the Bible says: God loved that son.
Ha, Ha; the first time that I read that one after I became Born Again; I asked God a Question.
I said: Daddy, I’m not querying you Oh, I just can’t understand – An Adulterer, a Murder; went in to an Adulteress of the “Worst Type”, who killed her husband (Or at least caused the death of her husband) and they brought forth a Child and you loved that Child?
And then God asked me a question – He said: Son, your mother, is she the first wife of your father?
I said: No More Questions.
There is somebody here today – It doesn’t matter how badly you have messed up; you are going to enjoy “Exceeding Abundant Grace” in Jesus Name – Amen.
II. Or take another Example – Take Peter.
You know the Story of Peter – The Day Jesus Christ met Peter, there was two (2) boats but Jesus Christ choose the one that belongs to Peter.
He gave him a Breakthrough so Mighty that he needed the Help of the other boat to carry his Wealth.
And I have always said it and I’m saying it here again too because you are all my children:
A Day will come that you will need somebody to help you carry your money to the Bank – Amen!
And then Peter began to walk with God and God did a lot of marvelous things for him – For example, he was one of the three (3) that went to the Mount of Transfiguration.
Do you know that of all the Disciples, only Peter walked on water?
I know that when they are telling you the Story, they only tell you the Story that he took his eyes off Jesus Christ and began to sink.
Before he started sinking, he walked on water.
Why don’t you walk a bit on water and then we will see who you are.
And then he said to the Lord Jesus Christ that I will never deny you – He (Peter) denied Him (Jesus Christ) three (3) times in one Night.
… He blew it full time!
But then when you get to John 21: 7-17; the Bible said that Jesus Christ still went after him, restored him and told him that I know you have failed badly but you will still be my Senior Pastor.
This same Peter ended up with a Shadow healing the Sick – That is what I call “Exceeding Abundant Grace”.
… That kind of Grace that Nobody can really explain.
I told some of my children long ago that there are three (3) Ways of doing things:
I. The Right Way.
II. The Wrong Way
III. The God’s Way
When God wants you to do something, Nobody checks – Not a question at all; Right or Wrong, it’s just God!
Why? – Because God is Sovereign.
Psalms 115:3 says: Our God is in the Heavens and He does as He Pleases.
May it Please the Almighty God to give you “Exceeding Abundant Grace” – Amen.
Now, there is something quite interesting about Grace – Whether Grace, Abundant Grace or Exceeding Abundant Grace.
God does it as He Pleases – You don’t earn it.
It is just like Salvation – By Grace we are saved and not of works.
But you know, there are certain things that you must do if you are going to enjoy this thing called “Exceeding Abundant Grace”?
But daddy, you said that Grace is unmerited Favour – That is true.
Afterall, God said in Romans 9: 15-16 – He said that I will be Merciful to whom I will be Merciful and I will have Compassion on whom I will have Compassion.
He now said: Therefore, it is not of him that willeth nor of him that runneth, but of God that showeth Mercy.
The whole thing is Mercy.
But as a “Small Boy” who had been walking with God since 1973; I discovered something – Whenever God says this is the Way it is, this is what I am going to do if you are close enough to hear him whispers; He will say: If you do this, you will commit me.
For Example – He said: I will show Mercy on whom I will show Mercy.
… That’s my Prerogative.
DMC NOTES: Prerogative means an inherited Privilege or Official Right that one has over others.
But then He whispers in Matthew 5:7 – Blessed are the Merciful, for they shall obtain Mercy.
I say I will show Mercy to whom I will show Mercy; but if you will go quietly and show Mercy yourself whether I like it or not; I will show Mercy unto you.
What can I do so that if God wants to show “Exceeding Abundant Mercy” to only one Fellow I will be the one?
Whether I have a Meeting like the Holy Ghost Service (HGS) or Particularly outside the Country where I have never been to before; I always asked the People to Pray a Prayer – God if you are going to bless only one Person here tonight, let me be the one.
What must I do?
- I think you should take a look at David and learn from him.
When he blew it and they told him that he blew it; his Repentance was Genuine.
When you get home read Psalms Chapter 51 – He Prayed a Prayer of Repentance and he never offended God again.
- Consider Peter, who blew it full time like I said.
The Bible tells us that when he denied the Lord Jesus Christ the third (3rd) time and Jesus Christ looked at him and their eyes met, the Bible said that Peter went out and wept bitterly.
… His Repentance was Genuine.
Around the time that I got Born Again, around the time Paul got Born Again; when People come to the Altar to receive Jesus Christ; they come crying – Genuine Repentance.
When Paul the Apostle wrote the Bible Text, when he met Jesus Christ on the way to Damascus; as soon as he hit the Ground, his next question is: What do you want me to do Lord?
And he never, never, never looked back.
You can read many of his Epistles – You will hear him saying for example in Galatians 2: 20-21 saying: Whether I live or I die, I just want to Please Jesus.
I know that I have obtained Grace and I refused to frustrate the Grace.
I’m sure that you heard a lot of Teachings on Grace now – Like I said, I’m a Pastor, I am not a Theologian. That is why I have dodged that one.
You hear People tell you – Once you are Born Again, you can keep on living like a Child of the devil, Grace will cover it all.
I said I beg to differ because I know that Grace can be frustrated.
You hear Paul saying: For me to live is Christ and to die is Gain.
God is Sovereign but He knows all things – He knows the End from the Beginning, He knows your Heart, just as He knows mine.
I believe without any doubt that God has given you this Theme for our “Very Special” Anniversary because God knows that there might be some of us who are just following the crowd to the Church and He wants you to Change!
He wants a Commitment from you – A Commitment that if I live, I will love for Christ, if I die, I will die for Christ.
A Commitment that will say bye bye to sin, Thank God that I am saved; I am not going back.
I have already Prayed for you and Thank God with all Humility, I can say this: He answers my Prayers.
You are not going to leave here without an “Anniversary Gift”.
But my concerns is not just for today, my concerns is your tomorrow, your Future. Where do we go from here?
So, I’m going to make an Altar Call Two-In-One (2 in 1).
- If you are in Church today or reading now on the Label of DMC and you know that you have Backslided.
You know those things you said that you will never do again that you are back doing them.
You need to come back to the Foot of the Cross for the Almighty God to restore you, to cleanse you afresh and then to reinstate you.
- Or you are in Church or reading now on the Label of DMC; you are not even Born Again and you are listening to me or reading – This is your Day.
I know that there are many of you outside – I saw a bit of it when I’m coming in.
But for those of you who are here or reading now on the Label of DMC; I appeal to you in the Name of the Sovereign God that you should come and surrender your Life to Jesus Christ now.
I’m going to count from one (1) to fifteen (15) but if by the time I say fifteen (15), you are not already Standing before the Altar; I will know that either you are sure of your Salvation, you are sure of your Sanctification, your Commitment to God. You are sure beyond all doubts that if the Lord returns today; you will make it to Heaven.
… If not, come now before I say fifteen (15).
Those of you who are already Infront – Cry to the Almighty God and say: Lord, have Mercy on me, save my Soul, restore me to Fellowship with You and I will serve You for the rest of my Life – No looking back at all, Please have Mercy on me.
And the rest of us, let us stretch our hands towards these our New Brothers and Sisters Infront and intercede for them – That the One who saved our Souls will save their own Souls also; that God will give them Genuine Salvation that cannot be queried.
Pray for them for just two (2) Minutes.
Thank You Jesus!
In Jesus Mighty Name we have Prayed – Amen.
PRAYER FOR SALVATION AND CLOSING PRAYER
Saviour, I want to bless Your Holy Name.
I want to Thank You for Your Words and I want to Thank You for this People who has responded to this Altar Call.

And those who are Backsliders, who has decided to return; Please receive them in Jesus Name, restore them in Jesus Name.
Father, I commit all these Your Children into Your Hands, from now on, answer them by Fire.
Thank You my Father and my God.
Now, my Father and my God; I’m committing everybody in Church inclusive All Members of the DMC Family into Your Hands and everyone who will ever hear this Message or read the Message on the Label of DMC; Please Lord, anything they ask from now, before the Sun sets, let it become a Testimony.
I’m going to ask them to ask You Father for an “Anniversary Gift” – A Miracle “So Big” that they will never forget today. Father, give unto them, let this Day be a Day to be remembered.
And I Pray that in Your Kingdom, none of us will be missing.
Thank You Father.
In Jesus Mighty Name we have Prayed – Amen.
Now, those of you who has come forward, let me hear you shout Hallelujah – Hallelujah!
I’m rejoicing with you.
Now, I’m Promising you as a Man of God that as God will help me from now on; I will be remembering you in my Prayers.
The Counsellors here will attend to you.
But before you go; I want you to be Part of the Prayers we are going to Pray.
And the rest of us, shall we Stand on our feet and shout Hallelujah to the Almighty God – Hallelujah!
I want you to forget everybody else and focus on God for just five (5) Minutes and ask God for an “Anniversary Gift” – A Miracle that Only God can give.
… Just go ahead and ask Him now – Something Big and Mighty!
Thank you so much for staying all through to read.
