Inspiration and Role Model
Gloria’s first inspiration is Jesus and the desire to be like Him. Her next source of inspiration and strength is her mother. According to the music minister, “my mother is a great source of inspiration and also a pillar in my life. She has raised me to be the woman that I am today. She’s an anointed woman and a great prayer warrior.” With the kind of superwoman she has as a mother, Gloria learnt early in life that prayer is a channel to living a victorious life. She strongly holds to heart James 5:16: “The effectual fervent power of the righteous avails much.”
According to Gloria Louis, “the devil is afraid of the weakest Christian on his knees. We subdue, conquer, take over and have dominion in the place of prayer,”she says.
As a child, Gloria was drawn to the popular gospel artiste, Don Moen. She loved the sincerity of his heartfelt worship. Don Moen gave a refreshing meaning to worship and helped her understand worshipping God in spirit and truth.
Another worshipper that inspired the songwriter was Darlene Zesch. According to Gloria, Darlene’s “life and ministry has been a great source of inspiration to me that I had the desire to join the Hillsong worship team.” Fortunately, her desire could not come to fruition because God had better plans for Gloria and her ministry.
Presently, her role model is Minister Sinach. A popular gospel musician in Nigeria, whose ministry has been a tremendous blessing and source of inspiration to Gloria.
Gloria’s core aim and belief are that “when we worship God and God alone, He takes absolute charge over the affairs and our lives. Life is worthless, meaningless and empty without God.”
