Mother- in-law

While in the university, whenever my friends and I discussed marriage and other issues, I always said I pray my mother in law dies before I meet her son. Due to all the horror stories I heard and saw (movies ignited my already stimulated imagination) I didn’t know better. I never took the time out to pray for her to die but saying it was also another form of prayer. This trend continued for a long time till one day, as usual I repeated the statement again among peers; someone replied, she said: “that will be the same way your […]

Defense Counsel

While I was single, I worked as an assistant teacher at a private school in Abuja. The teacher who I was assisting was an older woman with grown children, one of her child then, was in ss1. He came to see his mother occasionally, whenever he closed from school or needed something, so I barely knew him, but I knew his nickname (what his mother called him). I woke up one weekend to a love text from a strange number, since I didn’t know who it was I ignored the message. Later in the day, the number called me and […]

Praying ahead

I saw an article sometime ago, which said the Germans train their children from age five for world cup, when I showed my brother, he said “no wonder, they are always among the top contenders for the cup.” for those into football; you know their track record in football history(I am not). Then there are soldiers who always go for training to prepare them for battles whether there is war or not. When I want to write an examination, I prepare ahead before the day. I considered all these things, and then thought, why do all these preparations for minor […]

Proverbs 5:15-20 (AMP) Against temptations and infidelity

My husband (his name) drinks water from his own cistern(me) And fresh running water from his own well. His springs (children) shall not be dispersed, As streams of water in the streets? (No Children born out-of-wedlock for him) my husband is confined to only me; his wife.] His children are ours alone, And not the children of strangers with us. I am (wife) blessed [with the rewards of fidelity], My husband rejoices in me; the wife of his youth. I am as a loving hind and graceful doe, My breasts refresh and satisfy my husband at all times; He is always exhilarated and delight in my love. He is not […]

Deuteronomy 28:3-13

These were the promises God assured the Israelite of having in Canaan, so long as they obeyed, served and acknowledged him as God, almighty. The Bible said we are joint heirs; (having a part in the promises and blessings they enjoy as God’s people) with the Jews because of Christ death and our belief in him and the resurrection. I appropriate this over my day and that of my household daily.  I will be blessed in this city and blessed in this country. The fruit of my womb will be blessed, and the crops of my land and the young of my […]

Colossians 1:9-14

  I ask God that you fill my husband and I(my children, siblings, parents e.t.c) with the knowledge of your will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, so that I may live a life worthy of you Lord and please you in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of you, God,  being strengthened with all power according to your glorious might so that I may have great endurance and patience, and giving joyful thanks to you Father, thank you Father for qualifying me to share in the inheritance of your holy people in the kingdom of light. Thank you for rescuing […]

Proverbs 31:10-31

These verses of the Bible is like my comfort pillow for who God sees when he looks at me and who he wants me to be. I can go back to them over and over again. I am a wife of noble character who can find? I am worth far more than rubies. My husband has full confidence in me and lacks nothing of value. I bring him good, not harm, all the days of her life. I select wool and flax and works with eager hands. I am like the merchant ships, bringing her food from afar. I get up while […]

Ephesians 3:14-21 (NIV)

  Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name, I pray that out of your glorious riches he may strengthen me with power through your Spirit in my inner being,  I ask that Christ may dwell in my heart through faith. And I pray that I, be rooted and established in love,  and have power, together with all your holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ,  and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that I may be filled to the measure of all your fullness oh God. To you father, who is able to do immeasurably more than […]

These declarations are God’s word that I hold on to daily(I don’t get to say them daily as much as I use to but I try by God’s grace to say them at least once or twice a week). I use the declarations as prayer for God’s purpose, reminding God of his promises, protecting/shielding my husband against infidelity, reminding myself of who God says I am, prophesying over my family and many more. These declarations are not only for married people, far from it! if you have read my post on Praying ahead then you will know this is for both […]

TO LEAVE OR NOT TO LEAVE

I saw the news on the kidnapped children and I am very happy for the families and the school. I cannot begin to imagine what the parents would have gone through; thank God they came back safe, we were all praying for them. I noticed something while reading the story on their thanksgiving in the school, one of the parents gave a testimony on how his son called him with the mobile phone of one of the kidnappers which he mistakenly left behind. He called his father to ask, if they should escape, the man missed the call and the […]
