For Mr. Michael Ayitey Powers, it was a huge embarrassment for months as he kept on jumping from taxi to taxi. It was not a status befitting for an internationally reputed cruiser weight boxing champion of Ghanaian descent. The last car he bought was eventually taken away from him after the purchase deal went awry due to some disagreements with the seller. This development turned him into a common pedestrian who only managed to use taxis from time to time. Soon, the gossip-mongering public began to bandy rumours about his taxi-boarding escapades. Shattered by those unsavoury experiences, he was in dire need of a change for the best. He desired a car befitting of his status and looked up to God for intervention.
As he was walking around one day, he saw a vehicle for sale which he admired at a car dealership showroom and decided to enquire about its cost. The Audi A4 car according to the owner was to go for fifty thousand Ghanaian Cedis. Even though he had no money at that point in time, he requested to test-drive the car. After test-driving the car, he was impressed with it and decided to park somewhere to pray to God for the provision of the money for the purchase of the car. Clutching his Faith Bracelet, he cried out to God asking him to prove Himself once again by making him the proud owner of the Audi A4.
After praying and asking God to make him the owner of the car, he went back to the owner to hand the car over to him. Apparently expecting negotiations to begin, the owner was shocked when Mr. Powers told him that he would come back for the car because it belongs to him. After they had exchanged phone numbers he told the car owner that no one else would buy the car except him. After that encounter with the car owner, he moved on pondering on how to raise the money for the car.
While praying in church one day, he was informed by a friend that the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua was around. After church that day, he went to one of the ushers to find out if he could just say hello to the man of God. He was told that though, the man of God was in Ghana, he was not available at that moment, so Powers returned home. Being a multi-talented personality with interests in music and showbiz, he was on location for a movie and left his phone at home. When he returned, he discovered several missed calls including an SMS from The SCOAN requesting him pick his calls. By the time he called the number from The SCOAN, he was informed that the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua had been trying to see him. He was however also informed that, though the man of God had returned to Nigeria, he left a message for him.
Hearing this message, he rushed down to the church thinking that the man of God had left some Morning Water for him. On getting to the church, he was ushered into a room where he saw one of the greatest wonders of his entire life! A big envelope filled with money was shown to him as the message left for him by the man of God. According to him, all through his professional boxing life, he had never seen that kind of money. Opening the envelope, he discovered he had been blessed with a huge financial. Speaking with authority, he immediately put a call across to the car owner to come for his money. That was how he became the proud owner of an Audi A4 open roofed car. Many people were unable to come to terms with the miraculous blessing that came Mr. Powers’ way; there were insinuations that he rented the car. But that was only a confirmation that God’s glory and power are beyond human comprehension.
