Bishop Oyedepo said the purpose of a thanksgiving such as a birthday celebration is to receive more blessings from God.

The author said: “Thanksgiving is a powerful force. It should be done to secure blessings, perfect blessings and multiply blessings.

“Christians should always thank God, no matter the situation. They should not murmur, they should not grumble.

“For sleeping at night and waking up in the morning, you owe God a thanksgiving.

“If you offer God a timely thanksgiving, it will spur Him to pour more blessings on you.”

He congratulated the celebrant on his new age and wished him more prosperous years on earth in good health.
