  • I thank God for Bro. Joy for sharing his wisdom and knowledge about the word of God, the true meaning and sense of worship..honestly, i didn't know the differences of worship, praise and prayer..what i knew was when u praise and pray that is equivalent to worship..but thank God, He didn't allow me to continue my ignorance through reading Bro. Joy's spiritual studies..but we're not yet done :-) me,my aunt and my grandmother will continue to study and share to our neighbors what Bro Joy imparts on his slidespace. To God be the glory. :-)
