Prayer II

Sisters,

Today's posts is a sequel to the previous post on Prayer and I pray that you would be blessed.

Prayer is having a conversation with God. A conversation is not a conversation without dialogue. It is a two way communication where you talk to God and he talks back to you through His word. That's why it is impossible to have a good prayer life without His Word.
You must know that an empty spirit man cannot pray. You need God's word to dwell richly in you to tarry in prayer.
Another thing about prayer is that we ought to pray proactively rather than wait for things to happen before resolving to pray about, that is dangerous.

In a good marriage, a spouse tells her partner her plans and movement for the day ahead of time. So the husband is well aware of her dealings and can profer suggestions on how to go about things better if need be. This is the same way God wants to be carried along in every detail of our lives. Real prayer is about showing how much you love God.

Don't be so good at telling everyone but God your worries. Let prayer be your first line of action.

How to improve your Prayer life:
1. Envision the Word: This is the place of meditation. Take time to digest and sink in the Word you have read and how it applies to you. For example, if you are believing God for children, I strongly recommend Psalm 127 as one of passages you should read and meditate on. While meditating on that you could write down the names you desire for your children.

2. Use the envisioned word to Pray. Having written those names you got in the place of meditation, pray with them. Say one of the names is Peace. You can say prayers like: "Peace my daughter/son i call you forth into my home, as the arrow is in the hands of a mighty warrior so are you in my hands."

3. Write down the prayer points curled from the Word. This would help you get consistent with those prayers till you get answers and when you get answers you would know what exactly you are thanking God for.


Furthermore, to have good prayer life you must:
1. Pay attention to how you pray. The best thing is to pray His will (the Word) then we are convinced that he hears us.

2. Watch what you allow in your mind. The mind is the battlefield. We live in an era where both things you want to see and those you don't want shove themselves at you, its your duty to choose that which is profiting according to Philpians 4:6.

3. Who are you following ? You are a function of those you hang around. Proverbs 27:17 Iron sharpen Iron... Don't just be on the gram liking mundane things, use the internet to your favour as a believer. Follow those who uplift your spirit and water your faith. Hebrews 10:25

There's no better way to wrap up the year than to get your prayer life better and in fact, you can reinforce your faith by starting to write prayers about the things you desire to see happen in 2019.

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
