“Dial the Right Number”.

Key Verse

“Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.” John 16:24

Text — John 16:23-27


Janet’s parents were very poor, as a result they could not finance her tertiary education. While Janet was still thinking of what to do with her future, her uncle arrived from the city. She explained the situation to him, and he promised to sponsor Janet’s education. He then gave her his phone number and told her to call him as soon as the University’s application form is available. Janet attempted to contact her uncle, but was unsuccessful. The number kept giving the ringing message, “The number you are calling is not on this network. Check the number and call again.” After several failed attempts, Janet met one of her cousins, Deborah, who gave Janet the uncle’s correct number. She then realized she had been calling the wrong number. She immediately called her uncle who sent money for the form as well as a large sum of money for her university education.

The Name of Jesus is the right number to dial to reach God the Father in heaven and to get answer to our prayers. When you call God in the name of Jesus and you have faith and there is no sin in your life, the door to heaven’s resources will be opened to you. Dial the number “JESUS” and answer will come immediately.
