"I will implore Prophet Hezekiah that he should play less and pray more. He should support the grace of God upon His life with fasting, prayer and seeking the face of God. Always try to prepare your message as if you want to preach to millions of people. Ministry is a battle ground. Do whatever you can to succeed in this new capacity," Pastor Akinosun concluded.
