The Gethsemane Prayer Ministry, which started as Gethsemane Prayer Fellowship, was commissioned on May 23, 1987 as a forum for continuous and consistent teaching and practice of God’s word in prayer, fasting, praise, worship, intercession, supplication and deliverance. It was founded through God’s servant, Dr. Moses Aransiola, and now has a worldwide scope.
Gethsemane Prayer Ministries incorporates the Gethsemane Prayer Fellowship, the Gethsemane Prayer School, Gethsemane Chapels, Gethsemane Itinerant Ministry, Gethsemane Publications, Gethsemane Media, and National Prayer Mobilization.
God has used the ministry, through the Gethsemane Chapel of Life, to plant vibrant churches in some major cities of Nigeria including Abuja, Ibadan, and Lagos.
God has also used the Gethsemane Prayer School under the leadership of Dr. Moses Aransiola to run prayer schools, prayer academies, prayer conferences, and revival meetings in five continents of the world. Since its inception in 1993, God has used the Gethsemane Prayer School to train and commission more than 100,000 prayer warriors, intercessors, and lay people all over the world. The Gethsemane Prayer School has a global reputation for sound Bible based teachings on diverse aspects of prayer and effective spiritual warfare. The ministry has its headquarters in Ibadan, Nigeria.

4. people who desire a more effective, result oriented and dynamic prayer life,
5. people who want to refresh their souls with the Living Water of everlasting life,
6. people who need personal revival and desire to possess their possession,
7. people who would want to know how to pray and teach men to pray,
8. people who are burdened for God’s glory in their land,

4. We organize prayer conferences, retreats, seminars, travailing and tarrying meetings and fasting meetings.

The Lord has always glorified himself in these meetings by pouring out His fire of prayer and revival on His people, and confirmed our teaching and ministrations with signs and wonders following.
THE PRAYER ACADEMY
Many batches of students (prayer warriors and intercessors) totalling more than 100,000 have graduated from our different prayer schools and prayer academies since its inception in 1993. These include pastors, students, businesspersons, civil servants, force and paramilitary personnel, etc. Responses after the school sessions have been quite encouraging as more and more Christians have expressed eagerness to enrol for the next school. This is a result of the tremendous transformation our students now experience in their personal lives, career, and in their churches. Testimonies abound on how the Lord has been using such former students to change and affect the prayer lives of their local churches, fellowships, ministries, businesses and families.
Gethsemane Prayer Ministry Publications.
The ministry has in the last years published in addition to the regular teaching magazines (The Prevailing Magazine and Intercessors Digest) many other books that are in circulation in many other countries and focus mainly on prayer. We also produce audio and video teaching CDs, Prayer School Lecture Manuals, Lecture Tutorials, Strategic Prayer Books, tracts and pamphlets on different aspects of prayer, intercession and spiritual warfare.
