Hey Blog Fam

Trust we’re all doing great and following hard after all the things the Lord has placed in our hearts.

I apologize for just disappearing like that, it wasn’t intentional, I just suddenly woke up one day to discover that I could not access my blog; it took the intervention of God, friends, and some of their own friends to get this Blog running again.

I shudder to think of what would have happened if they couldn’t do anything about it and then I get to lose close to three years' articles. Help me thank God o. praise the lord somebody!

*Dancing in my mind*

So to the post of today…

The last Blog Post was about one of the many advantages of believers; Prayer.

Praying is beyond talking to somebody somewhere hoping that he will grant unto us what we want or ask for, prayer is a weapon both to defend ourselves and to wreak havoc to the camp of the enemies.

Harnessing the power that is embedded in prayer is what we all must do because there is so much power made available to us when we pray. Little wonder the scriptures tell us that;

The heartfelt and persistent prayer of a righteous man (believer) can accomplish much [when put into action and made effective by God—it is dynamic and can have tremendous power].  James 5; 16b AMP

Praying is not just something we do because we don’t know what else to do, or worse when we start treating it like our last card; the only thing we can do after we have tried every other thing. 

Far from it, praying about things should be THE first card, before trying to call others, call God first.

Can we normalize talking to God first about everything? Even before we start leveraging the help of technology or talking to experts, can we first of all talk to the greatest expert ever liveth?

To pray is to show dependence unto God, being fully persuaded that he will grant us all that we are expecting from him.

There are certain times that we might think that praying about things are not so important, but God wants to hear us talk to him about everything. 

As a person, I get a lot of comfort and peace knowing full well that I have talked to God about a certain case, I might not have the answers to my prayers yet, my answer might not even be tangible or relatable at the moment, but just  having told God about it brings so much comfort to my mind.

I learnt this from my mentoring Academy, 'the answer I get about praying about something sometimes isn’t the answer itself, but the peace that follows telling God.'

To get the full gist of the above statement, let me share what happened to me some months ago.

I was having difficulty thinking about a friend’s case, we both could not just think through the next season and how things were going to be, I was anxious, in fact, we were both anxious about how things will play out.

We both knew being anxious couldn’t do anything for us, so rather than being anxious we both decided to pray, after our individual and corporate prayers, we felt so much at peace even though we didn’t know how the scene will eventually play out. We just had the assurance that God gat this.

The season came and went and the Lord did good in my friend's life, and that season even became a stepping stone to more greater height. 

The lyrics from the song on the last post really talked about the needless pain that we bear because we do not carry everything to God in prayer.

And when we talk about carrying everything to God in prayer, it is not about taking some serious specifics to God and then leaving some mudane things that we feel that God shouldn’t be interested in, that lyrics tells us to carry EVERYTHING to God in prayer.

We are told to cast ALL our anxiety on God, if it ever crosses your mind, it might as well be casted on God.

1 Peter 5:7 tells us to;

                Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.

We have a God who is able to do all things, and he wants to do all things for us, he desires to make all things possible and available to us, but he needs us to ask him, he needs us to partner with him to get these things done.

God is not only interested in your spiritual life, and you feel he is not interested in your career growth and how well you do in your finances, he wants to be involved in all, tell him about every aspect of your life.

Tell him how you’re crushing on that fine brother/sister.

Tell him about that difficult boss at work.

Tell him how that lecturer is always pissing you off.

Tell him how you can’t wait to hit the seven-digits net-worth.

Tell him how you are looking forward to being a wife/husband and how the delay in this is making you anxious.

Tell it ALL to Him.

One of the benefits that comes from telling him all of these is that, he begins to give you the wisdom you need to navigate terrains you have never walked through before.

You’re crushing on a guy/lady, tell it to God, he’ll let you know if this is something worth pursuing or mere infatuation that you need to let go.

You have a difficult boss at work, talk to him, he’ll teach you how to relate with that boss, remember he is our teacher and he teaches us all things. It won’t be the fault of the teacher when you don’t know something and then you fail to ask questions, ask the questions, and begin to see the answers made available to you.

You have dreams of hitting the seven-digits net-worth, talk to him, gold and silver all belongs to him and he owns the cattle on a thousand hills. He will make wisdom available on how best to manage your finance. He’ll start bringing your financial teachers your way, you’ll begin to hear of credible opportunities at the right time, and before you know it, you’ll have gone way past your initial target, only because you told the Lord about it, and got him on board as your Personal Financial Advisor.

You have this advantage of prayer, use it well, leverage on the good that comes from it.

You’re not an orphan, stop living as one, you have a Father that cares so much about you and he is committed to your all-round growth, cooperate with him to do what he alone can do in your life.

God bless you.

Prayer Works!

See you next Thursday.

There is so much light***
