Today’s Prayer # 122

Dear Heavenly Father, I thank you for the dawn of a new day. I adore you for your long kindness and tender mercies. I worship you for your promise of restitution and renewal. Father this morning, you see the need of each of us, some are in need of rest, deep rest, body and mind. Some of us are just worn out and weary from life’s struggles and demands. The joy of our salvation has been diminished with sighs of depletion and signs of exhaustion. Breathe, Oh breath of God on us one more time.

Lord, some of us are weighted down with stressful situations at work, family relationships or hurting friends; old wounds or new hurts with fresh pain. Abba Father, I ask thee to hold us close, give us strength, and send grace in the shape of our need. Some of us are quite capable of choosing foolish ways to fulfill our longings and medicate our pain. Please rescue us from ourselves, dear Lord.

Father some of us simply have not been taking care of ourselves. More work and busy schedule than quiet and sleep. Father let me be the first to admit that I am guilty. Forgive us Lord. Restore us oh Lord. Melt our hearts with mercy; gentle us with your grace and humble us. Restore to all of us the joy of your free and rich salvation. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer in Jesus’ holy and loving name. Amen and Amen.

Sing Songs of Praise

When life’s storms are raging and my days are dreary,
I lift my voice and sing to Him songs of praise.
When I think about the One who holds the world in the palm of His hands,
I lift my voice in praises to Him who understands.

When blinded with unbelief and tormented with doubts,
I raise my voice and echo praises in jubilant shouts.
When I think about the One who bestows His grace on me in so many ways,
I lift my voice and sing to Him songs of praise.

When I look at creation and its beauty that surrounds me,
I sing songs of praise to the One who created the mountain and the sea.
When I think about the One who brought me from darkness into His light,
I vow to sing songs of praise both day and night to the One who restored my sight.

Time to Do a Little Faith Stretching

“And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him.” Hebrews 11:6 There are countless stories in the Bible of God calling people out of their comfort zones. And with each one, the stretching brought […]

Time to Do a Little Faith Stretching

His Peace

I know of a lasting peace that can be found,
In Christ Jesus where all blessings abound.
His Peace is my comfort in the midst of misery and strife,
His Goodness and Mercy are my companions all the days of my life.

I have the privilege of serving the Prince of Peace,
Abiding in His Peace brings such sweet release.
He whispers, “Peace Be still” above life’s furious storm,
The wind and rain stopped, my sea became calm.

He commanded the wind and the waves, “Peace be still”,
At the sound of His voice the raging storm yielded to His will.
He is the way, the truth, and the life, 
He is the Prince of Peace in our world filled with strife.

He, who is Jesus Christ, brings to us this Peace,
When overwhelmed by the waters of life’s storm, look to the Prince of Peace, His Peace will never cease.
His Peace brings tranquillity and stability to one’s soul,
That’s the peace we need, in our world where the hearts of men are waxing cold.

He Is Still God

When Pharoh pursued the Israelites, Moses lifted his rod, and stretched his hand over the sea as the Lord commanded him to do,
The Red Sea miraculously parted and the children of Israel walked through.
Pharaoh’s army started following them along,
But they all drowned in the sea, just where they belong.

The three Hebrew boys refused to bow and were thrown into the fire,
Nebuchadnezzar watched to see if their God would save them when things get dire.
But Shadrach, Meshach, and Abedngo walked out of the fire,
Their bodies were not burned, neither their attire.

Daniel was thrown into the lions’ den,
Because he refused to obey the laws of men.
But God rescued Daniel from the lions that night,
He sent an angel to shut the loins mouth, and Daniel they could not bite.

When faced with fiery trials, do not despair, God is with you,
He is still God, trust Him to bring you through.
God still brings deliverance, victory is in His DNA,
He is still God, He always make a way.

Grateful For Another Milestone

It is a time to pause and give thanks for the blessings of another milestone. The journey to this goal was long, with many obstacles and detours but after countless challenges including a global pandemic, I have ended another chapter in my educational pursuit. The journey to achieving this milestone was not a walk in the park. The path to get here was a long one but eventually traveled with persistence over time.

I am grateful to so many persons. First and most importantly, I want to thank Abba Father for His blessings. I thank the Lord for the opportunities He gave me to learn the necessary materials, the determination and fortitude to complete this milestone, and the will and strength to maintain my faith in his plan for me during the period. The journey has been long, but Lord you comforted me when I was down. You pushed me forward when I was afraid to move. You lit the path for me to follow when I lost my way. I made it here only by your grace.

I would like to thank my wonderful family for their unending support on this journey. I am deeply thankful for my dear friends, those in the blogging sphere and otherwise who have encouraged, prayed and supported me along the way. I could not have done it without the support and love from each one of you. I am thankful to my Lecturers who shared their knowledge and expertise. Thanks to my batch mates for their assistance in different ways, at different intervals.

This achievement is dedicated to all those who have been part of my journey to this point in time. My family and friends, who loved and supported me throughout the years it took to arrive at this milestone. Thanks to all who prayed for me constantly, namely, my Pastor and her husband, also Keeble, my former Pastor, and my blogging family.

Special thanks to the following persons.

To my wonderful family, especially my mom, my sisters Donnet and Karen, my nephews Alex, Odean and Omarie, my nieces Giselle, Marsha and Kerry. You folks have supported me from day one, and I can finally say I did it!

To my friend Cher, I could never repay you for the many times you prayed for me and helped me get through the most difficult times through college! Thank you for assisting with my assignments and for helping me by being the positive light that I needed especially in my darkest hour.

To my sister and friend Yvet, thank you for your financial assistance and prayers and encouragement.

A very special thanks to Andy for extending himself whenever I needed his assistance and sharing his knowledge and expertise in his specialized area.

To Audrey for her encouragement and assistance with assignments.

To Letisha for providing useful study material and assisting with coursework.

To Paul and Alex for their financial assistance.

Thanks to all of you who helped and supported me through this chapter of my life. You have all at some point offered me words of blessings, love, encouragement and also prayed for me. Made me laugh when I was stressed, gave me the extra push to continue when I felt like throwing in the towel. All of which have propelled me forward to this point. Though it was not all easy sailing, your support made the journey much lighter.

I believe there might be others that I have left out, but please know you are not slighted, without a doubt. From the bottom of my heart thank you ALL so very much!

Prayer After Exam – Final Day

Dear Heavenly Father I thank your for another day. Thank you for waking me up to see your beautiful creation.

Father I am grateful that I was able to sit my final examination for this semester and also the final examination for this programme. Lord whilst I am grateful that I have reached another milestone and it is your grace that has carried me through these past two years, Lord I kneel before you with a broken heart because of the experience I had; having been given the wrong time for the exam, resulting in me having to rush through the paper, not answering all the questions adequately and not completing the exam. Lord, only you alone know why I had to have the experience.

Notwithstanding all that happened I will not ask for much Lord but I pray for a pass in this exam. Please Lord,  grant me this wish so that I can move ahead in my career. Please release the tension that is welling up inside me. Lord help me not to harbour any bitterness towards the Lecturer or the institution for having erred. Help me to forgive them and move on. Abba Father, please heal my broken heart and set my mind at ease. Lord I do not know what the result will be and what lesson I will learn from this experience but Lord I know it is all in your hands. May you do what is best for me at this time. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer in Jesus name I pray amen.

FAITHFULNESS
