iWorship Wednesdays: Any Crown

I can't seem to get enough of this song. I'm sure it's not new but I didn't hear it until last week. I've been so cold in recent days, in more ways than one but when I listened to this song I was reminded of who the Lover of my Soul was and there truly is no crown that can compare with Him. For me, this song is a prayer, it is who I want to be. Read the words and hopefully fall deeper in love with your Father who is also your Husband..I used to wonder about that but when you love someone there is a way they become your everything. Be blessed. I'm sorry for my inconsistent posts. Love you all. Thanks for spending time with 'me'. Thanks Hillsong and Juanita Bynum for this.

Remain blessed and highly favoured.


Any crown I've ever won
I laid it down
Any praise I've ever gained
I give it all to you
There is nothing in the world
That can compare
You alone are worthy

You are near to those who call upon your name
You're ever giving, ever loving
You remain the same
For you open up your hands and satisfy
Give you all the glory
Give you all the glory

You are worthy oh Lord of all honor
You are worthy to receive our praise
In your presence I live
And with all I have to give
I will worship you

You are near to those
Who call upon your name
You're ever giving, ever loving
You remain the same
For you open up your hands and satisfy
Give you all the glory
Give you all the glory

You are worthy oh Lord of all honor
You are worthy to receive our praise
In your presence I live
And with all I have to give
I will worship you

All my years
Glorify your holy name
Glorify your holy name

iPray Fridays: Divine Intervention

Alarmed, Jehoshaphat resolved to inquire of the LORD, and he proclaimed a fast for all Judah.  The people of Judah came together to seek help from the LORD; indeed, they came from every town in Judah to seek him.

2nd Chronicles 20: 3-4

'Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God's. Tomorrow march down against them. They will be climbing up by the Pass of Ziz, and you will find them at the end of the gorge in the Desert of Jeruel. You will not have to fight this battle. Take up your positions; stand firm and see the deliverance the LORD will give you, O Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Go out to face them tomorrow, and the LORD will be with you.' "

2nd Chronicles 20: 15b-17

Dear Lord, I thank you for here we are once again, alive and able to lay before you, lift up our voices before you, bring our petitions before you. We acknowledge that there is no one like you. You are both willing and able to do of your good pleasure. You are a great and mighty King. Able to do exceedingly, abundantly, far above all that we can ask and imagine. Thank You Lord for the manifold blessings you have showered on us, both those that we are able to remember at this time and those that we cannot. Thank you Jesus, thank you Lord.

My God and my King. I acknowledge that life without you is truly like I sang as a child, 'like a doughnut...with a hole in the middle of my heart'. Life is tough but with Jesus in the boat I am always assured of making it to the other side. The One who has total command of the winds and the waves. Today O Lord, we bring pressing issues, the ones that require divine intervention before your throne of grace. The Ones that you deal with exclusively...'that all may know the hand of the Lord has done this'. Dear Lord as we pray today, we bring letters that speak against our peace before you, we bring situations that we are not even able to put into words, we acknowledge that You are our help and there is no other.

Like Jehoshaphat we bring our issues before your throne and wait and listen for divine instruction on what we should do, how we should tackle the issues. Fight or hold our peace; speak or keep quiet; run or stand still. The horse is made ready for the day of battle but victory comes from you O Lord. This is our year of victory, our year of a new song. 2010..the year of 'The Lord has done this and it is marvellous in our eyes'..Amen and Amen.

So dear brothers and sisters, say a prayer, write your prayers in the comment section...He hears, He answers.

iPray...will you?

Remain blessed and highly favoured. This is our season to reign, our season to shine.

iWorship Wednesdays: God is all around us

Hi people,

I must apologise, this song was originally by the group Anointed but couldn't get any videos of them on Youtube. I think this group did a good job of presenting the song, meditate on the words if you can. In a world of transient relationships and quickly changing circumstances, I'm glad that there is a constant in my life which is that God is around. The word says that 'He is a very PRESENT help in the time of need'...He is 'always there'. Be blessed.

God is all around us

Consider the kindness of a stranger
That passes by your way
For there are ties that bind us
Together, forever

Touching the broken-hearted friend
Brings healing to the soul within
There’s evidence everywhere
Of His love, sweet love

God is all around us
Even when we feel we’re all alone
I can hear Him whispering my name
Telling me that I’m His own
God is all around us
Even when we feel all hope is gone

God is all around
God is all around

They’re so many lessons yet to learn
And I don’t know where the road will turn
He always finds a way
To guide me, remind me

That if I should fall into the night
He will be there, a shining light
For all the world to see
With open arms for you and me


God is all around (He’ll hear your prayers)
If you just reach out (He’s everywhere)
God is everywhere

God is all around us
When you feel all alone
Can’t you hear Him whispering your name
Telling you that you’re His own
For God is all around
God is all around

iPray Fridays: Jehovah Rapha

He said, "If you listen carefully to the voice of the LORD your God and do what is right in his eyes, if you pay attention to his commands and keep all his decrees, I will not bring on you any of the diseases I brought on the Egyptians, for I am the LORD, who heals you."

Exodus 15:26

But for you who revere my name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings. And you will go out and leap like calves released from the stall.

Malachi 4:2

/heal·ing/ [hee-ling]:  growing sound; getting well; mending. (

I love the sound of that..growing sound, getting well, mending. This is God's desire for us that we be made well. I'm sure each and every one of us knows someone who could do with God's healing touch today. Today we make a decision to stand in the gap for them. If you don't you can pray for me (my bank account needs!). When Jesus came to earth, He was moved with compassion..I can't recount how many times He said 'Rise up and walk' or 'Be healed' or 'Be opened'. Today we carry the power of the Holy Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead within us so we too cry out and say 'Rise up and walk', 'Be healed' and 'Be opened'.
Today I want us to go deeper, for some of us we need healing on the inside..there is nothing physical about our ailment but we still need that touch from God. He is willing and able..there is nothing He cannot do. No, I don't know why sometimes we pray and it seems like there is no answer. Only God knows that...I will still pray anyway. I remember asking my mum why Elisha died from an illness and yet his dry bones raised a man from the dead. Only God knows that...I will still pray anyway.
iPray...will you?
Remain blessed and highly favoured. Our God still answers prayer.
N.B Feel free to use the comments to write down your prayers, anonymously if you prefer in case you want to mention cases by name. God sees your heart and He knows who and what you are praying about. Remember to thank Him in advance and share your testimonies too.
Another important point that just came to me...there is a difference between health and healing. To the man by the pool, Jesus said after his healing '...Go and sin no more'...for some of us its 'Go and exercise more' or 'Go and change your diet' or 'Go and rest a little'...we are spirits that live in bodies. Our spirits are eternal, our bodies are not. Ask God for the grace to take the very best care of your body that you can. It is well.

iWorship Wednesdays; Trouble aint..

Hi people

Sorry for the break in transmission. It's been real busy at my end but I felt very guilty for abandoning the blog. Wow..2010 has been a year but I thank God. This song really got me through some hard times this year. Thanks to Ministers Erica and Tina...I'm sure it will bless you as well.

Trouble aint

Can't promise you no pain no tears
Can't say you'll never be lonely again
My friend
But you see there's a remedy
There's someone who's got
Everything you need
And if you hear what I'm saying
I'm sure you'll agree that?-

Trouble ain't gon' be here everyday
Even though sometimes it seems like it won't go away
After you've done all that you know how
Just to keep from breaking down
Just believe it's gonna get much better
After awhile

Sometimes I sit back and I think about
Where I've been and where I am
Right now
See I wasn't quite sure you could
Hear me calling
But you were there to catch me
When I was falling
So I know

Oh sometimes we may just want to cry
Then you tell me it's gonna be alright
You can't go through life
Living problem free
But you got to keep the faith
And you got to believe

So the next time you're feeling
A little frustration
And you going through
A bad situation
Remind yourself that it won't last for long
'Cause soon it will be over and you'll be moving
