Prayer mountains are very important and popular amongst Christians in Nigerian churches and that is because of the prayer culture that a lot of churches have arranged and incorporated into the doctrines of their ministries. The likes of Joseph Ayodele Babalola, Late Prophet TB Joshua, Pastor Enoch Adeboye and many other of God have a mountain where they often visit to pray.

However, in this article, we will only be sharing with you some mountains of prayer that were founded by Apostle Ayodele Babalola of the Christ Apostolic Church (CAC). During the lifetime of Apostle Babalola, he was known to be a Prophet that takes the work of evangelism as a core, and prayer was one of the important bedrock of his ministry.


Regarding this, he was able to establish some mountains of prayers on those evangelical trips and to date, some of the mountains of prayers are still effective and functional. Below are lists of the mountains he established:


1. Mountain Of Mercy (Ori Oke Anu)

During one of Apostle Joseph Babalola's gospel trips to a town named Erio-Ekiti in Ekiti State, the Man of God established a prayer mountain of which he named the Mountain of Mercy (Ori Oke Anu). Although, when Babalola came into the town, it was predominantly occupied by idol worshippers but after his evangelism, people gave their lives to Christ and that prompted the creation of a prayer mountain.

According to reports, there is a spot on the mountain where Babalola kneeled to pray and mysteriously, his knee formed a hole on the rock and that was as a result of the long hours he spent while praying.


2. Ori Oke Ikeji Arakeji


Just like Apostle, Joseph Babalola did in Ekiti State, the Man of God took the propagation of the gospel of Christ to a town in Osun State. And as a result of his visit, he was able to establish a prayer center and a prayer mountain in that part of town. As a matter of fact, the Prestigious Joseph Ayo Babalola University is suited in the town.

Reports also have it that, there is water in that Mountain that has never dried since Joseph Ayodele Babalola sanctified it, and the water can be used to cure all kinds of illnesses, diseases.

Myth even has it that, nobody visits the mountain and leaves without receiving an answer to his/her prayer. And that explains why some Men of God are often seen around that area, just to receive more of God's grace.
