Child of Grace

The spring of living water that rushes through my wild heart flooding equidistant points and spilling hope into my every parched promises  

I’m nothing without it but with it I am everything

My whole life can tell that only by it, have I come this far

It’s my voice, when I am voiceless

For by it; shackles were taken off my feet and I am set on high ground 

The impossibles are made possible for me

I am fearless in the midst of troubles 

I am no longer living under the old tyranny 

I am delivered, healed, redeemed and restored 

I am kept me by the cross through my life’s struggles

My battles, pain and struggles end the way they should

My nakedness is clothed  

I feel good and when I feel good, trust that I’ll look good. 

I’m taken care of through life’s journey and never left stranded

I didn’t earn it, because I couldn’t work for it

It was freely given 

And I enjoy it every day

Ore Ofe, GRACE

May the grace of God be with you!

PRAYER!!!

I’m not sure why I chose this Topic. Maybe, because I have been thinking of how to step up in my spiritual growth with Christ and praying is an essential part of it.

What is Prayer?. I believe, most people have different definition for prayer but in the midst of all of these different definitions, we would realize that, it emphasizes on one thing “Coming to the presence of God”.

Prayer is the practice of the presence of God. Prayer is the place, where we admit our needs, adopt humility and declare our dependence upon God. Prayer is the needful practice of all Christians. It is the point where, we exercise our faith and hope. Prayer, gives us the privilege of touching the heart of our heavenly Father, God, through His son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Even the bible says “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you” (James 4:8).

Now, when is the right time to pray? Wait! Is there really a right time to pray? Honestly, there’s no right time for anything, just pray always! 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 “Pray without Ceasing”. In other words, we should always pray every time and at every place. In your bedroom, while walking, when you wake up, when taking a shower, while driving, on the bus to work, school… everywhere, anywhere and at any time.

Prayer is a way of life, we should continually be in an attitude of prayer at all times. Pray when you have, pray when you lack. Pray when the sun is shinning, pray when the rain is falling. Pray when you are happy, pray when you are sad. Pray when everything is going as planned, pray when things are not going the way you want it. Pray when you are healthy, pray when you are sick. Pray when you overcome temptation, pray when you get tempted and fall in it. Pray when you experience good and beautiful things, pray when you experience bad and ugly things. Pray when you are going through challenges, pray when you overcome challenges. Pray when you win, pray when you loose. Pray for the poor, the sick, the needy, the helpless, the homeless. Pray for your country, the country where you live, your family, your neighbors, the church, your pastor…Pray without hypocrisy (Matthew 6:5-8). Also, we should be careful, what we pray for, learn to pray for the right things and not selfish prayers. I pray, God teach us and lead us right, Amen!
