Gen 24:3-4 • Prayers for parents who want their children to marry godly husbands and wives. A concerned parent like Abraham would not undermine the importance of seeking the face of the Lord to know the God- chosen life partner for his son. The person your child marries could determine his eternal destiny! Genesis 18:19: “For I know him that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the Lord, to do justice and judgment ;that the Lord may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken.” In the passage God says that he chose Abraham because he knew that Abraham would bring up his children in the right way. He would train them in the way of the Lord. This would ensure that the promise of God to Abraham would be fulfilled, i.e. if his children had not walked in the ways of God, that would have been the end of the Abrahamic covenant since God cannot bless those that do not follow him. When it was time for Isaac to get married, Abraham sent his servants Eleazar to his country with strict instruction to get a wife for his son. He knew God hated unequal yoke of marriage with unbelievers. Till today, that is the stand of God. These prayer points are designed for parents who love God and want his will for their children in marriage. • CONFESSIONS Matt. 7:7: Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: Josh. 24:15: And it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which you fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorities, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD. Isa. 54:13: And all they children shall be taught of the LORD, and great shall be the peace of thy children. Isa. 54:17: No weapon that is formed against thee shall proper, and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD. Isa. 49:25: But thus saith the LORD, even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, and the prey of the terrible shall be delivered; for I will contend with him that contendeth with thee, and I will save they children. • PRAISE WORSHIP 1. Thank God because he alone is the perfect matchmaker. 2. Lord, release the man/woman you have preordained as my daughter’s/son’s husbands/wife 3. Lord, cause it to happen that the divine match will come forth soon. 4. Lord, let it be a person who loves you wholeheartedly. 5. Lord, establish their home in accordance with the scriptures (Read Eph. 5:20-28) 6. Father, let all satanic barriers keeping them from meeting be dissolved, in the name of Jesus. 7. Lord, send forth your warring angels to battle on their behalf. 8. Lord, I believe you have created my daughter/son for a special man/ woman God. Bring it to pass, in Jesus’ name. 9. I stand in the gap and call him/her out of obscurity into his/ wife life, in the name of Jesus. 10. I reject the provision of counterfeit spouse by the enemy, in the name of Jesus. 11. I cut off the flow of any inherited martial problems into the life of my children, in the name of Jesus. 12. Let patience reign in the life of . . . (mention the name of the person) until the right person comes, in the name of Jesus. 13. Father in the name of Jesus, just Abraham sent his servant to find his son, Isaac, a wife, send the Holy Spirit to bring my son’s/daughter’s future wife/husband to him/her 14. Thank the Lord for the answer.

I have been asked several times why I choose writing poetry and motivating people. Well, my answer is simple: If you find yourself in my side of life, you'll definitely be grateful about the simple things life offers. You'll come to understand that every single day is an opportunity, and a reason to be grateful. I love what I do not because I generate a flow of income from it, but because in what I do, I can define my life and at the same time give meaning to someone elses life. As a poet my perception to life and the things that happen around me is quite endearing. I see life from the angle of possibilities. "Having overtime understood that drooling over situations never change the results, I choose to be optimistic at all levels and sphere of life." Born into a humble background, where my Destiny helper took the pains of seeing me through school as his last born and integrate me into his blissful family. gave me quite the necessary lessons I needed to become the man I have grown to be. Life is simply amazing when you see situations as a class and a needed lesson. I am simply an observer, I try my best to sketch out my tomorrow from my today's views. As a motivator, I see every experiences as a needed tool to help my friends, acquaintance and the entire society towards making the right choices. When you appreciate the person you have become, you can easily define your life's journey from where you came from, having a clear vision and understanding of your desired destination. Self-discovery means many things. It means finding your purpose in life (we all have a purpose), it means digging deep into your childhood and revealing the experiences that shaped you... good and bad. It means realizing what your beliefs are and living by them. The effects of self-discovery include happiness, fulfillment, clarity and maybe even enlightenment! The journey however is not always an easy road. The journey includes fear, confusion, misunderstanding, doubt and literally re-visiting all your choices in life. I like to refer to it as reshuffling of the mind, your emotions and your surroundings (including the people in your life). It requires making some tough decisions and sticking to them. My journey so far has seen me cut people out of my life. I call them the “takers.” They were takers because I allowed them to be and it wasn’t until I realized that many of these relationships were one-sided — self- discovery — that I decided to cut them out. It has also seen me completely change the course of my life and start to follow my true passion and purpose (poetry and motivation). I have also started to set intentions and no longer have expectations from others — okay... this one is really hard for me and it’s a work in progress — but instead I have started to look within for answers. I’ve had several set backs along the way and I have no doubt I will have many more but, I’m not giving up. What I know for sure is that the journey is worth taking. I am slowly becoming my true self, more aware and more tolerant. I am learning how to pay attention to my feelings and understand myself better. What I know for sure is that I have had several unrealistic expectations, which have set up for disappointment. Apparently because I lie to myself. Why do we do this? Why do we lie to ourselves? And more importantly, why do we allow ourselves to get away with it? When someone else lies to me and I find out about it I freak out. “How dare he lie to me? Does she think I’m stupid?” but, we lie to ourselves profusely and even cover up our own lies by accepting them as truth in order to reassure ourselves that it’s okay!!! What I know for sure is that being true to my feelings and accepting the poet and motivator in me and also acknowledging him as well as validating him has released so much fear in me. It has released my fear of not being good enough as well as my fear of not living up to the expectations I set for myself. What I know for sure is that we are usually our own worst enemy. We hold ourselves back in so many ways and accepting who I am, helps me move away from that pattern. The freedom you will feel within yourself starts when you accept the person you are or have become without being bias. However, the universe will give you back in rewards when your passion and obsession for who you are and what you believe in supercedes the challenges and discouragement that comes from your distrators.
