Pastor David Ibiyeomie, the founder and senior pastor of Salvation Ministries spoke about ‘The Creative Power Of The Word – The Wonders Of His Word’ at First Service, Salvation Ministries Home of Success. He then informed them of the proper way to speak especially when they are praying.
He read the book of Proverbs 21:23, which says, “Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from troubles.” He then advised them to refuse to say wrong things. For instance, speak success and not failure. Speak righteousness in Christ, not unworthiness.
He said that in his studies, he noticed that God’s word does not give room for unworthiness. That was why when the prodigal son said I’m not worthy, he said shut up which could be seen when he told his servants to dress him and put a ring on his finger.
According to the man of God, you can confess sin if you commit sin but you are not unworthy. He then, “Those are religious statements. ‘Unworthy sinners like us’ you have already put yourself in a wrong position. God said if you confess your sins, He is faithful and just to forgive you; He didn’t say if you confess unworthily. I know you read Scriptures but when you read, always ask the Holy Ghost to open your eyes. 2 Corinthians 5:21.”
Finally, he said that Jesus Christ took that place and made us righteous so you cannot come before Him who has made you righteous and say you are unworthy. You will remain unworthy that way. It’s not the right way to pray.
