iPray Fridays: Letters to Home


Dear Daddy

It hurts real bad.


Dear daughter

I know, my child, I know. But I am here and I am listening. Don't lose sight of me in your need to come home.

Your Father..

Because some days, you can't use a prayer book and there are no '10 steps to receiving your breakthrough''s just you and your Daddy and you can sit silent in His presence, cry, speak, rant just because He is your Daddy. Write your letter to home today, it's a letter to your could be a letter of thanksgiving, a letter of adoration or it could be a letter asking Why? Your daddy is always here and let's face it, there's nothing you can say that will take him by surprise because He knows your start writing!!

Remain blessed and highly favoured




Dear Daddy,

I looked in hindsight yesterday and I can't but appreciate you for the countless things you have done in my life. From keeping me alive since birth; to the numerous provisions when I needed them the most; to the protections when I walked through the valley of the shadow of death; to the ever increasing mercy you show me daily. Lord, I just want to say thank you.

"Through the LORD’s mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not." - Lamentations 3:22. I realize without your mercies, I wouldn't only have been dead but consumed without trace. Father, I offer you thanks. I refuse to take all these blessings for granted.

Thank you father.

Your Son

Dear Daddy,

Yesterday , remember that moment when I felt like a dark cloud just hovered over my head , and i said to the devil "you know you cant steal my praise"...and then R, Your sweet daughter, my dear friend called, and we spoke of how great You are, and that just did it for me, and the cloud passed...That was awesome you know...Thank You sooo much for looking out for me, for sending Your comfort and reminding me of Your words when i need it the most.

You're the best dad a girl could ever wish for and I love You with every bit

Dear Daddy

The last few months have been in what a rollercoaster. So many expectations I had for 2010 cut short, relationships realigned. I know I was headed for a nervous breakdown. In all I know that though for some moments I lost sight of you, I just want to say thank you Dad for always being with me. Even when I pushed you away and ran away your Presence was always with me.

Looking back I can only say that it was good that I was afflicted because I have grown more this year than all past years put together. I know our relationship is going through some adjustments as I try to shed off religion and move into relationship but I thank you all the same. The process of healing is sometimes a painful one but I remember Zoe say that some pains are necessary and so I submit myself to your plan and to your path.

Daddy, I love you and I continue to pray to love you for the rest of my days. You are my Abba..

Dear Daddy

Its funny starting a letter to you asking How you are doing? I guess my assumption is that you are always doing great..though sometimes I wonder..when you look at your children and the decisions we make, the way we live if that makes you feel 'down' sometimes..but you know me always wondering..

Wow, I am writing a letter to my God, to my King. I have to say thank you for all that you have done for me. Truly only you can take a mess and make it a message, only you can turn a test into a testimony.

Daddy kins, Baba mi, Eledumare...I say thanks

Dear Daddy,

Thank you for your daughter Zoe who always encourages me to pray and lets me know prayer is a powerful weapon accessible to all believers, every day and not just!

Today I bring my concerns about EB before your throne of grace. I am so worried about him, have been so worried about him. But Daddy, you created him, your purpose by design. I know that the devil cannot thwart the destiny that you have for him in Jesus name. Daddy, I don't know how to reach him anymore but I know that you can.

It was difficult for me to stand aside and allow you to be God and stop blocking what you were trying to do in His life. I am so sorry for getting angry with you about I look back and see why things happened the way they did and though I was sad now I am glad. Please protect him, speak words into his heart..Lord help him. I can trust him with you because You know best

Hmm, I thank you because I know you'll soon receive a post card in the mail saying 'Ise oluwa wa ti se, ko le baje o'

Your daughter

Daddy, if not for your love and faithfulness towards me, where would i have been? I have been in the wilderness and You asked me to sturdy the story of Joseph, David, Jeremiah, Ezekiel and to know that their is no situation you will allow to be more than i can bear. I thank You that today, i am getting the picture clearer. You have remained faithful to me despite my unfaithfulness. You are working Your perfection in my M and in MC. I surrender all to you o Daddy, have Your way. Pls Daddy bless Believer for me specially for making her a useful instrument in Your hand. Daddy thank you so so much.

This day, I have been warmed by your sweet embrace. As fellow bloggy buddies have circled round about me to give me your love and theirs - I am so blessed by your investment in me. You are concerned about every thing that concerns me.

Today, you carried me on your back. the burden lifted. I am free. With my arms around your neck and my legs girded about your waist, I laid my head against your shoulder and just let you carry me. I am so blessed to call your 'daddy'.

In my weakness - your strength is made perfect. Thank you for filling me up when I was so famished and spent. In you, I am restored. You are my Big Daddy...I have every thing that I need.

Your grateful warrior princess...

Dear Daddy,

I'm hurt. I'm asking why. And yet, with every question, your soothing balm soothes over my heart. It is synonymous with the infected foot i had last month. I can't help but think it was crazy sign you wanted me to see as well. While I was in turmoil, the infection was there, without me even knowing it. And as the foot healed, and my heart, i had overwashing pains. It is as though you were saying i must be in pain, my heart must be broken before I get the ultimate healing.

So for the numerous times I had cried in bathroom stalls and every single time you've held my hand... Thank you so much.

Your crazy daughter who is still learning to love you with all her heart, body and soul.
