PEACE IN PRAYER


There is nothing new, birth or death

Love or hate, sickness or health

Sadness or joy, truth or lies

They are all part of the school of life.

Accept each lesson as an apparent reinforcement for growth

Recognize the power of that divine strength

Remember darkness does not last forever

There is provision for your soul to recover.

Take comfort in the power of God

He will not leave you when times are good or bad

And every day He makes evident His little gestures in special ways

Till you become conscious He is holding your hands as you sail.

- Anita Ebhodaghe

That's right. Indeed He's always there with us, both in the good and the bad times. He is always there to care for us, we may not feel it sometimes but He's always there. And He will never let us go through what we cannot bear. They say "what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger"

Your destiny all lies in your hands. How successful and prosperous you choose to be is up to you. Your destiny is between you and God. Keep moving forward Pastor Anita. I love you.

I remember years back receiving unwanted news about my exams. I had worked so hard for these exams. And I was not bold enough to go and check the results myself. I asked a friend to help me check and he said I had not passed. In a daze, I went to see a friend, spent the day there with her and then as I returned home sitting in the bus, the Holy Spirit whispered to me "the power of prayer" over and over and over again. When I got home that evening, I knelt down by my bed and said to God, 'If you are seeing me Lord, I am on my knees praying that the result changes and my name appeared on the pass list' The next day, my mum called to congratulate me that I had passed and I was among the top twenty !!! From that day till now, I have never doubted and always use prayer to change a situation. Thank you Pastor for this lovely poem which reminds me now of that great revelation I had.

Thank you pastor Anita. The power of prayer cannot be overemphasized, I have put that to work on different occasions and the peace of God really filled my spirit. However, I need your advice on certain personal issues ma'am, I do hope I can get some of time, maybe I could mail you. Thank you so much.

Ephesians In Christ
Don’t Worry 25 “So I tell you, don’t worry about the food or drink you need to live, or about the clothes you need for your body. Life is more than food, and the body is more than clothes. 26 ·Look at [Consider; Think of] the birds in the air. They don’t ·plant [sow] or ·harvest [reap] or ·store food in [gather into] barns, but your heavenly Father feeds them. And ·you know that you are [aren’t you…?] worth much more than the birds. 27 ·You cannot [Who of you can…?] add ·any time [or one step;?one cubit; ?about eighteen inches] to your ·life [or height; ?the Greek probably refers to time instead of stature] by worrying about it. 28 “And why do you worry about clothes? ·Look at [Consider; Think] how the lilies in the field grow. They don’t ·work [toil] or ·make clothes for themselves [?spin thread]. 29 But I tell you that even Solomon ·with his riches [?in all his glory] was not dressed as beautifully as one of these flowers. 30 ·God clothes [?If God clothes…?] the ·grass [wildflower] in the field, which is ·alive [here] today but tomorrow is thrown into the ·fire [?furnace; oven]. ·So you can be even more sure that God will [Will he not much more…?] clothe you. ·Don’t have so little faith [or How little faith you have; You of little faith]! 31 Don’t worry and say, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear?’ 32 The ·people who don’t know God [Gentiles; pagans; unbelievers] ·keep trying to get [eagerly seek; run after] these things, and your Father in heaven knows you need them. 33 ·Seek first [Be concerned above all else with] God’s kingdom and ·what God wants [?His righteousness]. Then all ·your other needs will be met as well [?these things will be given to you]. 34 So don’t worry about tomorrow, because tomorrow will ·have its own worries [or worry about/take care of itself]. Each day has enough trouble of its own. (MATTHEW 6 EXB))

A very sad situation of a woman, who loved a man that never loved her, simply used. To be separated from your wife and kids for over seventeen years, and watch them suffer while living in luxury, hmmmmm. There was no sign of love, just appearances and photoshop. She worked very hard as my Pastor, I pray for P.Anita and other women in her shoes. There is peace in prayer. God will surely provide. Move on in peace, forgiveness and strength.

Beloved .... Your story touched my heart. Please know that you are loved of God and keep telling yourself this truth. Life happens to all of us, but it's how we respond that makes the difference. When our Lord Jesus suffered and died on the Cross for us, He took upon Himself every guilt and shame, so that we can boldy go before the Father and obtain grace and mercy in times of need. This is your time of need dear one, so don't hold back, call out to your Heavenly Father and receive His love, grace and mercy. I beleive that God has a great plan for your life, but satan has come to try and destroy you, bringing you into fear, guilt and shame. If you think about the ones who passed on, perhaps they called on the Name of the Lord before thet drew their last breath. Don't carry this burden any longer, let the Healer, heal and resore you..talk to Him and He will listen, He longs to fellowship with you. Take one step at a time and get the help and support you need from a good Pastor, and start Bible study, perhaps in a small group, and most of all allow the Holy Spirit, The Comforter to minister to you, He is your sure Guide. Remember you are precious and of great value, even if you don't feel that right now, tell yourself that your Redeemer lives. I will keep you in prayer and look forward to your testimony.. God Bless you and love in the Lord.

The broken cannot mend other broken people. You need to forgive yourself for without it, love is very difficult. Take time to rebuild yourself and re-discover the sparkle that first made you love Jesus. Ministering to another the gospel works by love. Fearing that they will die will render you ineffectual. They need to see the Jesus in you. I hope and pray this simple advice will help.

Touching story but as tender as your heart is please do not go on the guilty trip. It is a trap by the devil to get you so depressed till you become inactive. Fine, you made mistake but God will not kill you for it so do not kill yourself. God loves you and you need to accept that love and not allow the devil to get hold of your mind. Also, you need to talk to your pastor or any spirotually matured Christian that can counsel you with God's word

please hold on to this verse and remember God's love is bigger than all our failures and insecurities: 1John 3:20 For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things
