The Place of Prayer



Dear Sisters,

I trust that you are doing very well. May this week be our week of possibilities and the supernatural.

Speaking about the supernatural:

The Place of Prayer is a major factor if we as believers must experience the supernatural. Let's take it to bible times, Moses, Joshua, Caleb, Elijah, Elisah, Samuel, Jehoshaphat, Esther, Hezekiah, Nehemiah......and the list goes on, defied the natural through prayers.

I know we've believed and prayed for things that are yet to manifest (the way we expected) in past years. I know it can be challenging praying and not getting result as desired. In the end, the only thing we can do is still to pray. Meanwhile, that God doesn't answer our prayers The way we've 'preplanned' the answer doesn't mean He did not answer.The Place of Prayer is our safe place and a place we cannot do without. Every time we pray something happens. Don't let the devil tell you otherwise. Things are altered. Though sometimes are yet to manifest physically. Infact, there are prayers that go into generations ahead of us to manifest. So, do not be discouraged; God hears our prayers. And no time spent in the place of Prayer is ever wasted. You will surely reap the reward. Remember, one shall serve and it shall be accounted for a generation.

We've started a new year, let us stay in the place of Prayer and stay faithful. Like Elijah in James 5:16-18, he continued praying until he got a response.

"Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results. Elijah was as human as we are, and yet when he prayed earnestly that no rain would fall, none fell for three and a half years! Then, when he prayed again, the sky sent down rain and the earth began to yield its crops."
James 5:16‭-‬18 NLT

This year is not the time to leave things to chance. No! We would use our mouth in the place of Prayer to tell our lives, days, months and year the direction to go. Everyone that asketh receiveth, so get asking (in the place of prayer).

In the place of Prayer Hezekiah's death verdict was changed:
"About that time Hezekiah became deathly ill, and the prophet Isaiah son of Amoz went to visit him. He gave the king this message: “This is what the Lord says: Set your affairs in order, for you are going to die. You will not recover from this illness.” When Hezekiah heard this, he turned his face to the wall and prayed to the Lord"...2 Kings 20:1‭-‬2 NLT

How About Jehoshaphat:
"He prayed, “O Lord , God of our ancestors, you alone are the God who is in heaven. You are ruler of all the kingdoms of the earth. You are powerful and mighty; no one can stand against you! They said, ‘Whenever we are faced with any calamity such as war, plague, or famine, we can come to stand in your presence before this Temple where your name is honored. We can cry out to you to save us, and you will hear us and rescue us.’ He said, “Listen, all you people of Judah and Jerusalem! Listen, King Jehoshaphat! This is what the Lord says: Do not be afraid! Don’t be discouraged by this mighty army, for the battle is not yours, but God’s."
2 Chronicles 20:6‭, ‬9‭-‬9‭, ‬15 NLT

Sis, there's no better time to start than now. What a wonderful time we are in, that the Spirit makes intercession for us through unknown tongue.

Glory!

Loads of love,

Your Sis

As They Went

  Dear Beautiful One, I trust that you are well and that this post meets you in great spirits.  Some time ago, I had a task at work that seemed very convoluted. I wasn't quite sure how to go about it, but as I started, it became clearer what I needed to do and how I needed to go about it. I have come to  realise  that one of the most significant milestones one could ever deal with is starting and because the enemy knows this, he tries to keep us from starting. Keeps us from starting to obey God or cultivating the right attitude or association.    This and other similar occurrences made me begin meditating on the power of starting.  Often  we are faced with so many undaunted decisions and uncertainties and get conflicted about the aftermath of a decision even before we begin. Frankly, we will never know what lies ahead if we never start.  So  the best way to know what lies ahead is to start. Start from where you are. Clarity comes from doing. My pastor usually buttresses this point

DEALING WITH NEGATIVE THOUGHTS

Dear Sisters, I trust God that you and yours are doing well.  Before now, I would b ea t myself up each time a negative thought crosses my mind. This led me to do a lot of meditation on the power of thoughts and how to take charge of them. Of the many things I have now come to understand is that: negative thoughts in themselves are not bad. I know that sounds weird but stay with me, let me explain myself. Allowing these thoughts to remain and control us is where the issue lies.  It reminds me of the analogy of temptation versus sin. It is okay to be tempted, but it is not okay to sin.  When I was meditating on this, I read a devotional that week that reiterated that dwelling on bad thoughts is what causes  believers to fall. For the purpose of context, not all negative thoughts are 'fornication' or 'adultery' related; sometimes, it is not doing the will of the Father. Peter is a good example here when he said Christ would not wash his feet (John 13:8) and when he reprim

THERE IS MORE!

Hello Beautiful, Happy new year! It’s been a while I wrote to you, I trust that you are doing well.  How were the festive celebrations? Pleasant, I hope, except for the part of dealing with the extra pounds gained from the plenty food. 😊 It’s a few days into the new year, and I could not think of a better time to reconnect with you, my sisters. As the year 2021 ended, I was in a place where I did not want the year to ‘finish’. Why you may ask, well, it is because God blew my mind in 2021 – the year was heaven on earth for me – God’s favour was evident in all I did, and it felt so ‘sweet’. Everything that has a beginning must have an ending, so the year was bound to end regardless of my multiple testimonies. And that it had to end sort of began to make me feel unexpectant for 2022. Weird right? I wondered why too, mainly because the testimonies I experienced in 2020 I did not see coming or technically ask for them – it was just God honouring me.  So towards the end of 2021, I deliberat
