THIS IS A SCAM!! THERE IS NO PRAYER GARDEN - IT DOESN'T EVEN OWN THE LAND!!
The National Prayer Garden (NPG) held another wonderful tribute service on Sunday 9-11-11 at Camelot in Upper Marlboro, MD. The second annual event was a spiritual delight to the hundreds that were in attendance, which included some family members of 9-11 victims and heroes. The video and music tribute honoring those who lost their lives will always be remembered. On a day that Americans cried and prayed for peace and healing the National Prayer Garden offered a perfect opportunity for Christians of all denominations to fellowship, encourage one another, and praise God for how far he has brought us since 9-11.
I thank God for the NPG ministry and feel assurance that one day all religions will indeed be as one. The music, the message, and the fellowship that was offered by the National Prayer Garden at their 9-11 tribute just ministered to our souls. Many people were blessed with gratis tickets through the ministry and they were so grateful .The school children who performed in the ceremonial portions were encouraged to excell even higher in their lives. The senior citizens who received donated tickets to the elegant event were so grateful and truly blessed... saying that they had never attended anything so professionally presented. Clearly, everyone who attended, including me, were impressed and inspired by the quality in which the event was provided for the public. Once again, the National Prayer Garden Ministry reached out and touched many lives and ministry representatives at their second annual event . They clearly demonstrated that they only want the best for God and whenever the Prayer Garden is built we know that this same standard of excellence shall prevail. In the interim, the prayer vigils, visitations to the sick, and special events like the 9-11 Tribute sponsored in and for the community by NPG are truly making a difference in the family of God. May God continue to bless its founders, ministry members and prayer partners.
Visions are for appointed times and I believe with all my heart that God wants the National Prayer Garden to be built at a time when the world is in desperate need of a supernatural healing! We need a place for worship and fellowship that is nondenominational, nongovernmental, and worthy of his honor and glory. The Bible says that there is one faith, one God, and one Baptism....and I am so inspired to know that man is building the National Prayer Garden on solid rock -- not man's way -- but God's way. One brick and one partner at a time. It's roots will be so deep that it will weather any storm --- a refuge for anyone who is in need of prayer --- and an inspiration to those who need to be revived. Throughout my life I have supported many minitries but none have offered an opportunity to make such a profound and everlasting change in the world. The National Prayer Garden's natural beauty will be eternal and its economic value to the Body of Christ will be priceless. What better way for the church to optimize its limited resources than through collaboration? What better way for the Body of Christ to empower communities with jobs? What better way for the church to help endangered families than by unifying their collective efforts? What community wouldn't be honored to have an annointed program rise from its ashes? Its an honor to give to this project, and to be given the opportunity to support this vision. I pray that God calls and causes millions to bring this vision to pass! If you are a soldier in God's Army then this is your Gideon Moment! If your dreams have ever been deferred... then resurrect them in faith like Joseph! When the Giants keep coming, just stand still like David and see the glory of the Lord! The impossible will become possible! Eyes have not seen what the Lord has in store for his people! He blesses millions of Christians everyday...and I believe he will bless the National Prayer Garden with the partnership of Millions of Christians worldwide! God does not allow man to tear down that which he is building up. Any enemies in opposition shall become footstools!
The prayers and activities of this organization have already help me and my family in many ways. I assure you that the spiritual leadership of the National Prayer Garden Project is annointed and you couldn't find a more credible team of professionals overseeing its operations! Anyone who wants to join the effort or obtain information can do so at the community meetings held each third Saturday of the month.

I have become a monthly partner and will keep donating as long as God enabels me. I received an official acknowledgement for tax purposes and will receive a complimentary ticket to the annual 9-11 Tribute Program.
According to the National Center for Charitable Statistics, the National Prayer Garden has ZERO ASSETS & ZERO REVENUE. This organization has a Post Office Box in Welcome, MD, yet it does not own any property and as a Blog it cannot solicit donations.
According to the Maryland Tax Assessment site, Edak Eyo and Kayode Peter own a $699K home located at Mason Springs Road! Where did they acquire this amount of money? Donations to the Prayer Garden or from "fellow Nigerians"????
From the NPG blog:
“We thank God for the corporate donations that have made this possible. Through faith all things are possible”
Just WHO are those “corporate” donors? Construction Resolutions? The Faux Group? Lawrence Abell and Associates? Steve Scott Law Group? Cleaners of America? Kenneth Copeland Ministries?
Why are "corporate donors" even interested in this event, unless they have future "plans" for the RESORT COMPLEX??

YET AGAIN, ANOTHER EXAMPLE of a "Prayer Garden" RESORT supporter who is either UNWILLING OR UNABLE TO ANSWER ANY OF THE QUESTIONS OR ADDRESS THE FACTS...
DOES THE "PRAYER GARDEN" ORGANIZATION HAVE SOMETHING TO HIDE?
WILL ANYONE FROM THE PRAYER GARDEN ORGANIZATION ANSWER THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS?
1. WHO IS PROVIDING THE MONEY FOR THE PRAYER GARDEN TO MAKE THE MONTHLY $100,000.00 PAYMENTS FOR THE LAND??
2. Is the Prayer Garden receiving "donations" from a foreign investor or a televangelist?
3. Since the Project Manager for the Prayer Garden is a LOCAL DEVELOPER who "happens" to live in Charles County, I wonder if there's a "financial incentive" for him personally to insure this resort is built?
4. IS KAYODE PETER REALLY A CHRISTIAN -- OR IS HE A MUSLIM?
5. IS THE "PRAYER GARDEN" A MUSLIM ORGANIZATION DISGUISED AS "CHRISTIAN" so as not to raise "suspicions"?
6. IS THERE A NIGERIAN "CONNECTION"?
If the organization is unable or unwilling to provide answers to these questions, why would anyone donate?
This organization has no transparency, no clear agenda and no history of serving their fellow man, Christians, Muslims or any other. A grand "vision" without humble beginnings. Pastor Kayode has defaulted on his mortgage 4 years running. If he can't manage his personal finances, how could he manage the finances to support a Natioinal Prayer Garden. Reminds one of the Reverend Shine and DeeDee situation. Is this resort available to all Christians free of charge? Should we all be able to worship in God's garden and rest in His house or do we have to have a membership first?! Did my God ask me to build an opulent temple to Him or is this a tribute to Pastor Kayode and Lola?! No assets, no revenue, no proof of anything. Donate at your own risk.

I have read literature on the National Prayer Garden and I’m convinced that this is what the world needs during these pivotal economic times. No longer can we be divided, all denominations need to be united in Christ!
The National Prayer Garden is a vision of the man and woman of God, Pastor's Kayode and Ola Peter. I have heard of their efforts. Many are skeptical and want to tarnish and diminish these efforts. Now weapon that is fashioned or manufactured spiritually, financially or underhandedly shall prosper. This vision was sent by The Heavenly Messager, The Great I AM, Father God Almighty Himself. This will be a place where all may worship, praise and pray in spirit and in truth. Much love to all involved. Awaiting the opening day, yahoo!
