The organisers of the programme believe that this year’s event is a unique one because it coincides with the day Pastor Adeboye is 73.

This special hour of praise started in 2012 when Pastor Adeboye was 70 years. It was then 70 hours of praise. The following year, it was 71 hours of praise.

“If the Lord tarries, this is the way we will be doing it until God calls our daddy home, which I believe, it will still be a long time to come by the grace of God,” a source informed P.M.NEWS.
