E je ka gbadura!

I hope the title of this post means Let us pray. If I have damaged the Yoruba language, please it is not intentional, i am trying to learn. I've been meaning to write this all week.

Dear Lord

I thank you and I praise you because You have been so good to me. You have been faithful concerning your word which can never return to you void without accomplishing it purpose in my life. Thank you because I'm here and I'm still standing. Thank you because as each day goes by, You reveal more of Yourself to me through your Word and the Holy Spirit.

Father I'm asking not just for myself but for others as well that we are aware of your presence at all times because You have promised never to leave or forsake us. That when troubles arise, we remember that You are there and You are working and your silence should never be taken as absence. We pray for more of You, that You reveal more of yourself in a new way.

Father help us to be aware that we can let go of yesterday's disappointments, yesterday's betrayal and yesterday's hurt and step into today, a new day of hope, joy and peace. Remember what your word says about a new day springing forth.

Father, help us to remember that even when we go wrong, like the Father of the prodigal son your arms are open to welcome us back home when we admit our mistakes and choose to walk in your forgiveness.

Father, help us to love, truly love even when it is difficult. Give us the wisdom to make the right decisions in our lives and to choose to walk on the right path even when it is the road less travelled. Give us words that comfort, words that edify and words that encourage that we be the light and the salt of the earth and truly make a difference.

Father, we face so many challenges on our jobs, relationships and just life in itself but we know that with you all things are possible and that with prayer we can overcome whatever life brings because you can do exceedingly, abundantly and far above anything we can think or imagine according to the power at work in us. We ask for favour that comes with open doors that our names shall be mentioned for good, that just like Esther found favour in the sight of the King, we also shall find favour before those who will be used by You to bless us.

We present every negative report, from the doctor, from the bank, from the office and wherever before your throne, just like Hezekiah did because we know that You will fight for us as we stand still and see the salvation of the Lord. You have the power to turn it around because You told us that You will turn our mourning into dancing again. We shall surely overcome all the plans of the enemy.

We rejoice because when we pray, we pray to an Omnipotent God of all strength, a Promise Keeper who keeps His Word, the most High God who is higher than all names and situations. Jehovah El-Elyon, truly at the mention of your name all knees must bow. We pray in the name that guarantees an answer, the name of Jesus. Thank you Lord in anticipation of answers to prayer.

Your baby who falls in love with you a little more each day
