Over the past 8 years since 2012, the World’s Longest Gospel Musical Event which is called Marathon Messiah’s Praise has been an event looked forward to annually by Christians in Nigeria and other countries.
What started as an event known to be organized by the Redeemed Christian Church of God to appreciate God’s mercies and faithfulness over the life of Pastor E.A. Adeboye, the General Overseer, has grown over the years to become a phenomenon that brings together Christians from everywhere and from all and any denominations to worship God in one accord.
The 9th edition of Marathon Messiah’s Praise tagged 78 Hours Marathon Messiah’s Praise with the theme – Jesus, The Lamb of God will be held between the 2nd and 5th March 2020 in 21 countries across six continents.
Addressing newsmen at a conference held in Lagos on Saturday, February 15, 2020 the National Music Director of The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Kunle Ajayi official revealed that the 9th edition this year 2020 is expected to reach over 10 Million participants worldwide with over 30,000 live participants expected to worship for 78 hours non-stop. Setting a new world record, the longest musical event ever.
He also stated that the Youth Centre of Redemption Camp which has been the venue of the 8 previous editions can no longer accommodate the thousands of worshippers that will attend the event, therefore Pastor E.A. Adeboye announced the new venue will be the Prayer Foyer of the 3 by 3Km auditorium, Redemption Camp.
Over 30,000 live participants are expected to be in attendance with over 30 million viewers expected to watch the event on TV channels and various online platforms.
This year, over 210 Worship ministers and choral groups will be ministering across the 21 participating countries.

The team enjoined everyone around the world to be a part of this great avenue to praise Jesus, the Lamb of God.
