Prayers for intimacy with God


Hello everyone, thank you so much for clicking on my link. I appreciate you. If you have not subscribed to my blog, what are you waiting for? Click that subscribe button up there before I judge you. But really, welcome back and thank you.

So since the last blog post, I talked a lot about the love of Jesus and how we have been called into communion with him. Just like an earthly relationship, we spend time with our loved ones because we love them and enjoy their company. This is what our relationship with God is designed to be like. We spend time with him because he loves us and we love him back. The more we know of him through the Bible, the more we love him. If you need a wake-up call on how much God loves you that he gave Jesus, take a look at the book of Numbers. You will come into a deeper understanding of the love of Jesus. God is no longer angry with you, he expended his wrath on Jesus. He is always waiting for you to run into his loving arms.

Many people have written to me to express how much they want to draw closer to God and I believe so much in prayers. I know through prayers and yielding to the leading of the Holy Spirit, we can learn to develop an intimate relationship with God.

I collaborated with a fellow lover of Christ to draw up 10 prayer points to pray for developing intimacy with God. I really hope these prayers opens you up to a different level in your relationship with God.

1. Dear Lord, you know how my end from the beginning please cause me to stay in your will.
2. Dear God, help me to keep my focus solely on you.
3. I can't run this race alone Jesus, please strengthen me.
4. I am young and feeble please guide me through every step of my journey.
5. Even as I serve you, God, please do not let me be an enemy to my self.
6. Help me oh God to understand the finished work on the cross through Jesus Christ.
7. Lord, please fill me with your spirit 
8. Dear Jesus, Help me to understand your voice distinctively.
9. I pray that the eyes of my understanding be enlightened in Jesus name.
10. Help me to love others as you have commanded in Jesus name.

Amen.

Are Men Scum: The godly man guide

Men are Scum: The godly man guide to not being a scum
Last week, I watched Larry Charles' dangerous world of comedy on Netflix and the third episode focused on sexism.  It turns out that Nigeria's comedy industry thrives on sexists jokes that objectify women, normalise rape and encourage the exploitation of women. It was one of the most disgusting things I have ever watched. It's interesting that many think rape is a thing to joke about and the audience laughs at those vile jokes that involve victim blaming. Sexism is broadly seen in our society from the blue collar workers to the board room bosses, from Nollywood movies to product commercials. It is so deeply embedded in our subconscious that we don’t intend to hurt women with our words or actions, it is just a thing of a "normal thing". The truth is I am not trying to vilify anyone. The average man was dealt sexism as a part of being in this present day society. The good thing is you can unlearn all of these thin…

Story Time: How I got my battle scars (Part 1)

Story Time: How I got my battle scars Hi everyone, welcome back to my blog. I know many of you that have seen me in real life or have seen my pictures have questions about my scars. I'd have questions too if I was in your shoes. To note, putting myself out there like this is new to me but I believe my story will bless and inspire someone. It is a story of victory, deliverance, overcoming tragedy and experiencing God’s intentional love. 


Romans 8:28 (TPT) So we are convinced that every detail of our lives is continually woven together to fit into God's perfect plan of bringing good into our lives, for we are his lovers who have been called to fulfil his designed purpose.


On the 24th of March, 2012 my life changed forever. As the secretary of the History and International Studies student association at Babcock University (2012), I was part of the planning process for the annual departmental field trip. I woke up bright and early ready to face a wonderful and impactful day planned f…

Have faith, you will make it

Faith it till you make it
"Fake it till you make" was my go-to word and action while I was doing my post-graduate studies. For those that don't know what this means it is simply the act of imitating confidence, competence, and an optimistic mindset until you achieve your goals even when everything is not going your way. Basically, you may be discouraged on the inside about a situation but you act as though you are positive about it on the outside. For science lovers, this act is actually based on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). But since we are Christians, I decided to title it faith it till you make it because I realize that faking it keeps us limited at our own abilities. But when you “faith it”, you will assuredly make it!
Mark 11:23-23 (TLB) In reply Jesus said to the disciples, “If you only have faith in God—this is the absolute truth—you can say to this Mount of Olives, ‘Rise up and fall into the Mediterranean,’ and your command will be obeyed. All that’s requi…
