‘Unfailing Love’

Reading: Exodus 15:13

“You will lead the people.”


Father, I thought my sufferings and hopelessness were bitter beyond words. Through this awful time, I grieved over my loss. Yet I still dare to hope, and I remember this: the unfailing love of the Lord is never ending! By His mercies I am kept from complete destruction. Great is His faithfulness as His mercies begin afresh each day. I say to myself “The Lord is my inheritance; therefore I will hope in Him!” It is good for those who wait and seek Him for the Lord is wonderful and good. To wait quietly for salvation from the Lord and to submit to the yoke of His discipline is the only way. Can anything happen to us without the Lord’s permission? Is it not the Most High who helps one and harms another? Why should we humans complain when we are punished for our sins? Instead, let us test and examine our ways and turn again in repentance to Christ Jesus our precious Lord. Amen.

Lessons To Be Learnt

God’s love is unfailing and it never ends. By His mercies He keeps us from complete destruction. His faithfulness and great mercies begin afresh each day. He is our inheritance, and we put our hope in Him. It has been good for us to wait and seek Him, for the Lord has been wonderful and good to us, and we are thankful He disciplines us when necessary. We are under His yoke and mantle, and He leads us and redeems us in His strength and will guide us to His holy dwelling.

New Blog Post: ‘Come Into God’s House Daily to Meet with Him in Prayer’ ‘You Choose my Friends’

A mirror reflects a man’s face, but what he is really like is shown by the kind of friends he chooses. (Proverbs 27:19TLB)

Holy Spirit, I ask You to bring me the right friend, just like You did for Elijah and Elisha. You know all my needs, and You have promised to bring someone to me, who I can be evenly yoked together in Christ. Someone, who I can walk in step with, someone, I can develop openness and sharing. Someone I can fully trust in God. Someone, who will not betray anything that is being said to them and someone who can keep confidences, help me Jesus, as my Friend, to build godly and righteous friendships that keeps loneliness at bay and sharpens me for Your good and blessed purposes for me.

Jesus, I ask You to open the doors of service within my church and use all the gifts and talents You have given to me to magnify, glorify and praise the name of God in Christ Jesus now and forever more. Amen.

Stand silent! Know that I am God! I will be honoured by every nation in the world!”
(Psalm 46:10 TLB)


Father God, although sometimes I feel desolation in my life, You have anchored me to Jesus Christ Your Son. He is my sure hope. He is my hiding place an ever present help in my times of trouble. He sustains me with a sure hope. He will never abandon me and He is at His omnipotent station, He protects my family and me. He is my divine protection when powerful forces attack me. He is my Almighty God; He is my Fortress, my Refuge and my Strength. He cannot be shaken.
I shall cease to strive and will be still and silent before Him because I know He is my God. I lay aside all my human efforts, and I can always call upon my Eternal Hope – Jesus Christ my precious Lord.

Holy Spirit, thank You that I can lean upon, depend upon and rely upon You to be with me right through everything. I shall glorify and magnify You to the praise and honour of God’s precious and holy name now and forever more in Jesus Christ my precious Lord.  Amen.

Discovering God's Will

Reading: Psalm 86:8-11

“Teach me what You want me to do.”


Holy Spirit, my desires are for You to teach me Your ways. More than anything, I desire to walk in Your truth. Lord, You say, “You would move everyone out of my life that hinders Your plans for me.” However, hard it is for me I praise and thank You for doing this. You know what is right and best for me. I do not ever what to be the one who is an obstacle standing in the way of Your plans for me. I am so grateful to You for Your love and strength You provide me with in this matter. I ask You for my heart to be neutral and You will speak of Your plans for me in my life. You have prepared a plan for me even before I was born to this earth. I wish to discover Your will for me; please show me how this is done, as I never want to be out of Your will. The only thing worth having in my life is the will of God, in accordance to His promises for the glory of Jesus Name. Amen.

Lessons To Be Learnt

The Holy Spirit of God is the only One who teaches us the truth about the Gospel of Christ. We must walk in His truth and not follow deceit and deception any longer. It is so important to have a mind and heart that is alert and discerning in Christ. Without discernment we are unable to distinguish the truth from the lies of the evil spirits and forces of the earth. We need God’s help to empower and enable us to do this but must not hinder or create any obstacles which may impede God’s plans. We must be determined to discover God’s will for our lives and ask Him to unfold His plans within our hearts. He will only give us His best; all we need to do is follow Him in submission and obedience to His will and He will do the rest.

New Blog Post: ‘Come Into God’s House Daily to Meet with Him in Prayer’ ‘God will Carry Your Burdens’

Give your burdens to the Lord. He will carry them. He will not permit the godly to slip or fall. He will send my enemies to the pit of destruction. Murderers and liars will not live out half their days. But I am trusting You to save me. (Psalm 55:22-23 TLB)


Master, sometimes the burdens, anxieties and troubles are too heavy for me to carry. I have been taught by the Holy Spirit of God, to cast all of my burdens, anxieties, cares and troubles upon You through Jesus Christ my precious Lord. It is good to know You sustain me with Your righteous right hand and You will deliver me through Your supernatural power.
Thank You for Your broad shoulders, sturdy hands, and compassionate heart You show towards me.
Thank you for easing my load daily, and shining forth Your light in return for my heaviness. I trust in You, alone with all of my heart, mind, body, spirit, and soul.
My confidence and faith is in You alone. I shall focus upon Your power and receive Your all-sufficient help. You have never let me down. You will not let me slip or fall. You will take care of all my enemies and send them to the pit of destruction.

Jesus, You have heard all of my pleas and cries. You have enabled me to persevere and do the job You are calling me to do for the glory, praise, honour and power of Your holy and precious name. Amen.

New Blog Post: ‘Come Into God’s House Daily to Meet with Him in Prayer’ ‘You Have Called Me’

I know even now God will give you whatever You ask. (John 11:21 NIV).


Precious Lord, when it seems as if my world is upside down and all is out of control, I ask You to help me to have a strong and trusting faith. You may not remove the pain of my circumstances, but You will be my Guide and lead me through all the difficulties I face.
For I am Your Workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works which God has prepared in advance for me to do.
Your plan for my life is a unique plan. No one else will be able to do the work You are calling me to do as You have called me specifically for this work. You have placed Your anointing and gifts upon me through Your Holy Spirit, and at Your appointed time You will guide and lead me into the ministry You have waiting for me.

I wait in great expectation for I know God’s glory will be seen through my life and God’s promises to me will be fulfilled over every issue and detail of my life for His glory, kingdom and name. Amen.

‘We Commit to God’

Reading: Proverbs 16:3

“We should be dedicated to God”


Father, I commit my will, works, ways, and thoughts to You, O God. I lean upon, rely upon, and depend upon You through the Holy Spirit of God. I ask You to meet all my needs in accordance to Your riches in glory. I desire Your thoughts and Your ways to control my mind and heart. I wish to walk in submission, yielding and being obedient to Jesus Christ. I think about the goodness and greatness of my God. He only is worthy of my praise, love, and adoration. You are such a loving and faithful God. Why would I want to serve anyone else other than You? I know I will never be able to exhaust my ability to think about the goodness and greatness of God. I will never reach the end of my praise to Him. I will go on praising and loving You even into eternity where my real home is in Jesus Christ. Amen.

Lessons To Be Learnt

We should be dedicated to God and ask Him to give us a heart for His people as we commit and commend our prayers to Him. If we do this our plans will succeed. We must not be a superficial people who do not commit our work to God, nor must we be people who want to do everything for themselves. We should give God temporary control of our interests and not want to take control back from God the moment things stop going our way or the way we expect them to go. Every bit of effort of our lives should be put into our lives with God, so He can do exactly what He has planned for us. We must not withhold anything of ourselves from Him. We must want to maintain a delicate balance, trusting God as if everything depends on Him, while working as everything depends on us.

New Blog Post: ‘Come Into God’s House Daily to Meet with Him in Prayer’ ‘Prayer Sustains Me’

The end of the world is coming soon. Therefore be earnest, thoughtful men of prayer.
(1 Peter 4:7 TLB)


Father God, I shall not go into this dangerous world without prayer. I shall seek Your kingdom and Your name and not give up until I hear from You on the matter I am praying about. It is necessary for me to rise early in the morning just like Jesus did, and come to You in prayer and pour out my heart to You.
You enable me to lay all my troubles down at Your feet. I am able to discuss everything with You which troubles me.  You will lead and guide me into Your desired will and I have made the decision to follow You through the Holy Spirit of God in the name of Jesus Christ.
You know my heart and You know all the answers to the problems I have. You will meet all of my needs in accordance to Your will as I continue walking in the ‘Light with the Lord Jesus Christ’ in faith. 
I pray for Your perfect will to be done over every single situation I face.
I know You are the Giver of every good and perfect gift, which comes from heaven above. You have promised me to do all the necessary things needed for my good. I want to thank you Lord Jesus, for everything You have done for me.

Jesus, what I have gathered in my prayer life with You, thank You for Your wisdom, godliness, and righteousness, which have been given to me through God’s grace, mercy, and power to do His will. Praise and thanks be to God now and forever more. I pray in the almighty and precious name of Jesus Christ, my precious Lord, now and always. Amen.

New Blog Post: ‘Come Into God’s House Daily to Meet with Him in Prayer’ ‘Anchored to Christ’

‘Anchored to Christ’

Around midnight, as Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to the Lord – and the other prisoners were listening (Acts 16:25 TLB)


Lord Jesus, let me be rooted and grounded in You. Let me be anchored to the Source and Strength of my soul, spirit, body, and mind through Jesus Christ my precious Lord. You are my joy and I rejoice in You always. I know Your power is above all the principalities, powers and dominions in the world and You have promised You will deliver me through the glory of Your kingdom and name.
When the trials come let me respond: to resist in Your name and run straight to the throne of God’s grace and mercy I acknowledge Him in my situations.
I retreat into complete submission to God’s power and will. I shall reap the rewards of God, going through the difficulties with Jesus Christ, leading me all the way through the Holy Spirit of God.
I put my love, faith, and confidence in Christ’s power and not my own. He is always loving and faithful to me. He has promised never to leave or forsake me. He will never let me down. He will guide my footsteps and lead me into the places He wants me to be. Only He can open the doors of opportunities for me, and He will close the doors He does not want me to go through. I put my trust and confidence in Him forever and always giving all the praise, glory and honour to God my heavenly Father through Jesus my precious Lord. Amen.

New Blog Post: A House Of Prayer – Daily Devotional ‘Come Into God’s House Daily to Meet with Him in Prayer’

You Will Guide Me

Reading: Psalm 48:14

“God will guide us to the very end.”


My beloved God, You are my hiding place, and You will protect me from trouble. You surround me with songs of victory. Please guide me on the right pathway to the very end of my life here on earth. You will advise me and watch over me. Let all of my thoughts become pure in You. I lay down all my resentments, sharp words, impure thoughts, or selfish attitudes at the Cross of Christ. I ask Him to forgive my sins and ask Him to set me free. I do not want anyone to have a hold upon me other than You. Once I confess my sin to You, You do not hold anything against me. Your shed blood washes, cleanses, and purifies me and has made me clean. These sins have taken their toll on my spiritual vitality. I receive all of Your love and forgiveness. May my heart be changed into the ways and will of Christ. Let the Light of Christ and His amazing grace be deep rooted and grounded within my heart, mind, spirit, and soul. In quietness and confidence You shall be my strength, always and forever more in Jesus Christ’s Name. Amen.

Lessons To Be Learnt

We must seek God daily to guide and lead us into the centre of His will. Any struggles or decision we may have to make we must consult with God and ask Him to help us. He is the One who will enable us to make the right choices and decisions, which are in accordance with His will. The Holy Spirit of God should be our constant companion, and He will guide us into having an intimate knowledge of the way He wants us to go. He helps us interpret what God is saying correctly. The Holy Spirit is our Guide who God sent to us through Jesus Christ to lead us to the places and people He wants us to be with. This is all we need is to listen and depend upon Him and He will surely do the rest.

New Blog Post: ‘Come Into God’s House Daily to Meet with Him in Prayer’ ‘Deep Conviction’

And so, dear brothers, I plead with you to give your bodies to God. Let them be a living sacrifice, holy – the kind He can accept. When you think of what He has done for you, is this too much to ask? Don’t copy the behaviour and customs of this world, but be a new and different person with a fresh newness in all you do and think. Then you will learn from your own experience how His ways will really satisfy you. (Romans 12:1-2 TLB)


Thank You, Jesus, for taking my sins away from me and taking the punishment that I should have had, upon Yourself. You were pierced for my transgressions, You were crushed for my iniquities, the punishment that brought peace to my heart You took upon Yourself, and by Your wounds and stripes I am forever healed in the name of Jesus Christ.
Thank You, Jesus, for rescuing me from the power of darkness and this world. I know that the power of darkness has no more hold upon me because Your Shed Blood has been the atonement for my freedom and my faith in Christ Jesus has set me free.  
Thank You, Jesus, for making it possible for me to have a deep and meaningful relationship with our Father, You and the Holy Spirit of God.
I will not copy the behavior and customs of this world. I am a new creation: (This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun! (2 Corinthians 5:17 NLB). Therefore, I am a different person with a fresh newness in Christ. I will not allow the world to squeeze me into a mould, but I shall be convicted to stand for Christ Jesus, my precious Lord. Nothing will sway me from following God through Jesus Christ my precious Lord.
May my heart be convicted to know that my Father in Heaven has sent me to the earth to do His will just like He sent Jesus Christ my Saviour to do His will in obedience? I also choose to walk in obedience to God the Father, God the Son and the Holy Spirit of God.

I ask You to grant me the knowledge, wisdom, ability, to offer You my body as a living sacrifice, holy – the kind You can accept through Jesus Christ my precious Lord. Amen.

New Blog Post: ‘Come Into God’s House Daily to Meet with Him in Prayer’ ‘God’s is with Me’

“Now is the time to do it, while the Lord is blessing us with peace because of our obedience to Him,” He told His people. “Let us build and fortify cities now, with walls, tower, gates, and bars.” So they went ahead with these projects very successfully.
“O Lord,” he cried out to God, “no one else can help us! Here we are, powerless against this mighty army. Oh, help us, Lord our God! For we trust in You alone to rescue us, and in Your name we attack this vast horde. Don’t let mere men defeat You!” (2 Chronicles 14:7,11 TLB)

“Listen to me, Asa! Listen, armies of Judah and Benjamin!” he shouted. “The Lord will stay with you as long as you stay with Him! Whenever you look for Him, you will find Him. But if you forsake Him, He will forsake You. But you men of Judah, keep up the good work and don’t get discouraged, for you will be rewarded.” (2 Chronicles 15:2,7 TLB)


Lord Jesus, You will build walls around me, with towers, gates, and bars. The land is still mine, because I have sought the Lord my God, I sought Him and He has given me rest on every side. You have blessed me with peace because of my obedience to You. So, I can go ahead with these projects very successfully.
I know that no one else can help me but You, O God. I am powerless without You. Lord, there is no one like You, my God. I am totally reliant upon You for everything l need in my life.
“O Lord,” I cried out to God, “no one else can help me! I need Your help against the mighty army that is against me. O Lord, please will You help me! My trust is in You alone to rescue me through Jesus Christ my precious Lord.
Do not let man prevail against me O God. I shall listen to You for guidance and instruction, You will lead me into the way You want me to go. You are with me, You have promised never to leave me nor forsake me and I will never want to forsake You.
As for me, I shall be strong in the almighty power of God and I will never give up until I see God’s purpose fulfilled within my life, and He will be the One who will reward me for the work I will do in His name. He will establish His kingdom here on earth and in heaven for everything is controlled by His almighty hand in His name the name of Jesus Christ my precious Lord. Amen.

My Old Nature

Reading: Galatians 5:16-17

“Live by the Spirit.”


Father, I confess to You I have been living in my old sinful nature. I have allowed outbursts of anger, emotions, and feelings to take place in my life. Instead of taking responsibilities for my sins, I have blamed everyone else except me for my sins. Please forgive me. I lay down my emotions, anger, and feelings on the Cross with You. Wash and purify me from this sinful nature. Wash me in the Blood of Christ. Let me live my life in the Holy Spirit of God. I will not gratify the desire of my sinful nature any longer. I do not want to desire anything that is contrary to the Spirit of God. Holy Spirit, I want to follow You with all of Your teachings. Please empower me from heaven above. Enable me to follow You with my new nature in the nature of Christ Jesus. Control my life and fill me with all of the good fruits of the Spirit of God: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, faithfulness, gentleness, goodness, and self-control. Here there is no conflict with the law. I receive this prayer answered in the name of Jesus Christ my Lord. Amen.

Lessons To Be Learnt

God teaches us how to live each day with the Holy Spirit of God, leaning, relying, and depending upon Him to supply our needs. He will guide and lead us with His counsel. We must meditate on the Word of God. His Word should dwell richly within our hearts and minds. The love of Jesus Christ should be behind our actions. His power controls our selfish desires. Our old lives are dead and buried with Jesus on the Cross. We must want to live our new lives with Him. He is only One who can help us not to gratify the desires of our sinful natures. Our sinful natures are contrary to the Spirit of God and the Spirit of God which is contrary to the sinful nature’s desire. They are in conflict with each other. We must do what the Spirit of God wants. Being led by the Holy Spirit involves the desire to hear the readiness to obey God’s Word and the sensitivity to discern between our feelings, emotions, and His promptings.
