The Hallelujah Challenge is a yearly vigil of praise and prayer organized by popular and revered gospel musician Nathaniel Bassey.
The event which started out with just over 100 followers has turned into an international phenomenon. What was merely an event for the fans of the gospel artiste, is now an event that even the secular world cannot do but peep into.
The Hallelujah Challenge has indeed accelerated and expanded the trajectory of Gospel Music in Nigeria to stunning heights and relevance. Many people claim miracles occurred in their lives and in the country as a result of the event but perhaps the event in itself should be dubbed a miracle.
Considering the mammoth following that the hallelujah challenge has gathered, we deem it fit to consider briefly what has happened in the event so far, and the testimonies recorded. Starting from 2019.
Hallelujah Challenge 2019
The 2019 version of the event held from the 4th – 24th of the February. Just like all the ones before it. The hallelujah challenge contained prayers and praise. 2019, being an election year in Nigeria saw several prayers every night concerning elections and instructions to believers all over Nigeria to get their PVCs and ensure that they voted. Nathaniel Bassey also enjoined people to pray in the spirit for an hour every day before the event kicked off.
As always, the venue of the challenge was online and individuals could join into the live stream on Nathaniel Bassey’s Instagram page. This is perhaps another reason why the event is so remarkable.
It takes a lot to gather over 100, 000 people every night to follow a gospel musician online, rather than the Grammy!
Hallelujah Challenge 2019 Testimony
One of the most remarkable things about the Hallelujah Challenge is the amazing testimonies that people gave as a result of the program. From Job employments, healing, to people getting baptized in the Holy Spirit for the first time. If we begin to mention all the testimonies that were reported by individuals, we will probably need another blog post entirely. We have however selected a few that we have found remarkable, as contained on the website
From Seun Tola:
“Glory to God. My God is alive. I was on an application for school when suddenly they just sent a message that the application had closed. I cried because I really wanted it. Then suddenly, this morning, someone just checked and told me it is up again….. this is just God”
