Amos 6:1


My soul grieves for a game of soccer. Why am I at ease at the game of sin and injustice?

There is a place within the soul where mortals see what many cannot see, and they press on in the presence of the immortal one, every day, full of grieve and compassion, that He will light up a candle in that darkness and take away pain

Why am I at ease in Zion?

Why my soul

Why do you worry about a game of soccer and you are at ease, drinking and giving in of marriage

Like the days of Noah

There is a place I want to live

Where the mundane will not be inside my backpack

Help me O’ Lord

To die to the pulling of this world

To a world which is not tied up to my eternal purpose

I want to die so you can live.

Puritan Prayer


I humbly share these sincere prayers with you, which came out of my personal longings for deeper depths in Christ. I lay these petitions to God every day, that he will continue to draw me in into an organic union through the agency of the Spirit, to capture all that He IS, and WHO I am in Him; undistracted by the world of sin and self.

My heart desire and the heartbeat of the Father is that all of the brethren who have been weakened by the world of sin and religion; pulled away from intimacy with the Father, because of a sense of guilt, will encounter His glorious presence to influence the world of sin for Christ Jesus, effortlessly.

I have asked the Father to light up your heart today. I want Him to bless you with His presence as you journey with the Holy Spirit, sending your heartfelt petitions to Him, in anticipation for an incredible awakening in your own life, and the world around you. You can also use puritan prayers to intercede for a friend, a small group, your church, or family. May His abounding Peace rest upon you and yours!


“ARISE [from the depression and prostration in which circumstances have kept you–rise to a new life]! Shine (be radiant with the glory of the Lord), for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you! [Zech. 8:23.] For behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and dense darkness [all] peoples, but the Lord shall arise upon you [O Jerusalem], and His glory shall be seen on you. [Isa. 60:19-22; Mal. 4:2; Rev. 21:2, 3.]” Isaiah‬ ‭60:1-2‬ ‭AMPC‬‬


Dear, Father God

You’re the King of Kings

A Righteous judge over all and all

I thank you today, for the gift of life


I am deeply sorry,

For how long I’ve been governed by

This carnal invitations and temptations

Of this dark world, which has

produced gross weaknesses

within me.

My heart is dull, my spirit is numb

I am not happy, I am not free, I lack zeal

I lack sincere affections for your presence

I am bereft of the flame of hope, and the

fluidity to journey towards what

matters to you.


Abba, forgive me from this boredom drunkness

I am intoxicated in the world. The occupation of

worldly appraisals and passions have filled my belly.

This world is seductively my idol, and I’m cold

And passive to anything spiritual


I pray, dear Father, set my heart free,

Free like a bird, and make it ablaze

Like moonlight beauty, for

your own glory.


Free my soul from these invisible chains

That easily entangles me from pursuing you

Father God, Let your Holy Spirit quickened

This weary soul, and this worn-out temple

Of mine, so I could arise from the cold

Valleys of dry bones; becoming

A mighty force.


O’ Sweet Spirit, our trusted guide:

Manifest yourself among us,

Right now, right here, and we shall be

Awaken from our slumber.

Drench us in the sweetest odour of the Father

We want to diffuse our world with the

Eternal aroma that captivates the

Seat of human emotions [ spirit & soul ] for

An authentic response to your

Invitation of love, for true repentance.


May we capture our truest essence

Within the framework of your Kingdom

Agenda in it’s purest layout in the gospel

In partnership with the Holy Spirit.


I yearn for a richer understanding:

An understanding which comes from you

Holy Spirit, enlighten the eyes of my Heart

Lead me on, Shepherd of my Soul

Guide my heart to the greener pastures of truth

For I long to be captured first by your glory, so i

Can apprehend the length, the Depths, the

Breadth, and the heights of all that

You have offered through

Christ Jesus, my Saviour.


I ask that you Shine forth thy light, and

Thy grace upon this upside-down world

Draw the worst of us to yourself; sanctified

And purged; to confound the prideful of

hearts, swayed by human wisdom


Renew us,

Your people,

And we shall be renewed.


You are the master porter, and

We are the marred clay, yet firmly

Embraced by your mercies and grace

I am grateful to you, Lord Jesus, that you

Are in total control, rewriting and amending

Our beggarly stories, because you have the

Power and the patience to alter all things

For thy glory and for thy pleasure


O’ great God, you are the perfecter of life.

Please, reform us, mould us, and shine

On us, to be conformed to the stature and

Best of heavenly standards which are

pleasing and acceptable to you,

You alone.


If you can use anything, here I am;

Use me mightily, for your own glory

Before thy appearing, in Jesus

Your glorious name, I pray

Amen!

You Are All That Matters



”Just as we so matter to God, Our God will matter again to His Church, and the world shall flow into the holy mount of the Lord and journey with us in our uprise.”



”A new heart will I give you and a new spirit will I put within you, and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.” Ezekiel‬ ‭36:26‬ ‭AMPC‬‬


A NEW HEART | A new heart, free from the bondage of this carnal impulses of a carnal world. A new spirit that set the seat of our being on fire, that nothing else will matter anymore, but God alone.

As I write this post, I sense the heavens are ready, through the portals of Holy Spirit, to release unusual grace upon the universe. Sons and daughters of God shall be unleashed from the valleys of dry bones, to execute the will of the Father on earth. An army of believers whose heart and spirit are tired of the consummation of religion, and a mundane civilization devoid of the authentic realities of the Kingdom. Such men and women has been wrestling in the presence of the Father for so long, holding the horn of the altar with such an incredible desire to encounter the infinite possibilities of a righteous God, and the spiritual mysteries of His operations.

GOD MATTERS | Such men and women will make God matter in their everyday life. Such an army will die to the flesh and the world will not be worthy in their eyes anymore. Neither will they be worthy in the eyes of the world, because of their operations in the spirit. They will understand the spiritual mystery of the indwelling presence of God in their heart, and their authority and power within the mandate of the King of Kings, to capture the world for Jesus.

KINGDOM INVESTORS | Let us continue to yield ourselves completely to Him in prayer, holiness, the fear of the Lord, and ascend in the dimension of spiritual enlightenment in the word. Our sacrifices to his will, and surrendering of ours to Him is the truest path to circumcising our stony hearts [ The kind of heart which is not sensitive to his word and drifts away every day, chasing after what does not matter]

Have you allowed yourself to pause for a minute, considering all the happenings around us? Such questions like; ”why am I not on fire for Jesus? should burn inside our hearts.” ”Does God really matters to me?” ”How do I become an agent of love and power in the Kingdom of Christ?”

”What on earth is this boredom, that I have zero desire to stay in the secret place of God, basking in the depths of who He is, what His plans are, and my place within His agenda?” ”Why am I so anxious about what I will eat, what I will wear, how do I pay my rent, when do I get a new toy, a new this and a new that, and all the unnecessary competitions that wage war within our flesh?”


“But seek (aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousness (His way of doing and being right), and then all these things taken together will be given you besides.” Matthew 6:33 AMPC


JESUS IS LORD | If such desires and ambitions [ things that are above, heavenly inclined ] are not at the forefronts of our occupation then we have to ask ourselves again if Jesus is really our Lord, and if he really matters to us at all. My heart burns with one desire; ”to seek all that God has to offer.” I know if I find Him and his supernatural ways of doing things, all the other things I could have occupied my mind with will be bestowed on me through the operation of grace.

I am persuaded, this is the surest path to discovering the dominion mandate of God. This is how we soar on this side of life; aiming at, and striving after His perfect ways of DOING and BEING right.

MERE MEN | Satan is cunning enough to have distracted a lot of believers; our hearts and spirit are weighed down by the boulders of earthly longings and grandeur ambitions which is always before us, and hanging within our souls, each day. Great ambitions which are not tied to the eternal purpose of Christ, but to appeal our own sense of pride. Our hearts are numb to the things of God, and our spirit is governed by the spirit of this mammon. Unfortunately, we have become like mere men

EMERGENCE | Don’t log out, my friend. I have some good news for His bride; ”Just as we so matter to God, Our God will matter again to His Church and the world shall flow into the holy mount of the Lord, and she will journey with us in our uprise” and she will say; ”teach us the WAYS of the Lord.” ”Show us the path to peace.” ”Give us what you have because nothing satisfies in our kind of civilization, except your God, your truth.” hallelujah

There is a coming revival of hearts and spirit towards the ways of Jesus, and mere men shall rise with deep insights, and intimacy with the Holy Ghost; expressing a dimension of God the world has never experienced before. Do you want to be a part of the ARMY?


Dear, Father God

You’re the King of Kings

A Righteous judge over all spirits

I am so thankful to you, for the gift of life

I am sincerely sorry,

For so long I’ve been regulated by the

carnal invitations and temptations

Of this dark world, which has

produced gross weakness

within me.

My heart is dull, my spirit is numb

I am not happy, I am not free, I lack real zeal

I lack sincere affections for your presence

I am bereft of real happiness and real freedom,

and the fluidity to be consumed with all that

matters to you.

Abba, forgive me from boredom drunkness

I am intoxicated in the world. The occupation of

worldly appraisals and passions have filled my belly.

This world is seductively my idol, and I’m cold

And passive to anything spiritual

I pray, set my heart free, like a bird, and

make it ablaze like moonlight beauty, for

your own glory.

I want to be loose from an invisible chain of Satan

That easily entangles me from pursuing you

Father God, Let your Holy Spirit quickened

This weary soul, and this worn-out temple

Of mine, so I could arise from the cold

Valleys of dry bones; becoming

A mighty force.

Amen!

At The Dawn Of Friendships


At the dawn of friendship and more

i was an insane man at will, dwelling in caves

At the dawn of friendship and more I was a Joseph

In a cistern, without the coat of many colours

But many woes and more.


The Beloved knocked

on my doors.

”Love has no boundaries. Friendships are born not only in good times but in darker hues of days too.”


But Who runs to the cottage of misfits for a bowl of friendship on this side of town, sir?


”When love leads everywhere is home, and everyone is a friend, a brother, a sister and a song to sing out loud”

Soul soars like an eagle at once, into realms of soft joys; slapped by loves fragrances


He will be at your door today. He will be at your doors today, O’ pieces of rugs and reproach, he’s near

Please, don’t shut your door against him because the neighbour rehearsed his disgust in thy ears, that no one will come, that no one cares

”At the dawn of Friendships, I broke my own door, wiped my disbelief and welcomed the fragrant one.”


Come inside,

I have waited forever

Come inside,

We are forever,

O’ Gardener of the souls garden

Your love is unparalleled.

Welcome Home, My Child


graceCUT

When humanity drifts away from the very presence he was created to enjoy an intimate relationship with his source of reality, he wanders in restlessness.

“So Cain went away from the presence of the Lord and dwelt in the land of Nod [wandering], east of Eden.” Genesis 4:16 AMPC


Will COVID-19 draw us back to the Eden of God presence? A perfect paradise, where the spirit of regenerated men dances in the harmonic melodies of the whispers of a loving Father. I sense this deep beckoning in the spirit realm. An invitation of the Spirit of the creator for mankind to return to the original place of sacred communion with the Father. It is in this realm of intimacy you and I find authentic power and strength to live the quality life.

Cain represents a generation that wanders away from the perfect plan, the perfect place, and the perfect presence in Elohim, devoid of his glory. In God’s ultimate plan we were to be a people of His presence for the sheer purpose of reproducing the nature of God for His glory, in all of our endeavours. In His presence is the fullness of joy, and at his right hand of administration, we find eternal pleasures to overrule the dictates of the kingdom of darkness.

The multifaceted presence of the Lord can be actualized in our lives today, through a deep longing for the old pathway of staying consistently and intimately in the presence of God through heartfelt prayers and partnership with the Holy Spirit, else we wander perpetually in fear and despair, far away from where rare peace is supplied unabated.

There is a mystical river which flows from God’s presence and we find deep satisfaction within our souls when we are near, our cups are drawn in, drinking to our fill. Regardless of the inconsistencies around us our cups shall not run dry. The psalmist speaks about this river…

“There is a river whose streams shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the Most High. God is in the midst of her, she shall not be moved; God will help her right early [at the dawn of the morning].” Psalm‬ ‭46:4-5‬ ‭AMPC‬‬

Today, your Heavenly Father is inviting you and I to journey back to the streams of the spiritual river of his presence, the secret place of God, to rededicate ourselves through the spiritual medium of prayer, and fellowship in the spirit. The world has nothing to offer us. This pandemic has proven to us that all of the little idols we have depended on over the years were an illusion, but the reality is found only in the time we invest in His presence.

The multifaceted presence of God when encountered has the potency of raising ordinary men and women to become an end-time army of God who will exercise dominion and power over the rule of Satan. Do you want to become a true expression of the mystery of the vast possibilities of God in this life, in the midst of the odds? Let’s humbly pray to the Lord 👇🏾 today in the expectation that he will revive our spirits so we can return to him, draped with passion ❤️


Dear Father God,

I have wandered far from you

My heart is empty, my mind is

Filled with earthy pleasures, and I

Have no desire in me to seek you

or to know you intimately as my Lord

I have slipped far away from you

but I trust you are mighty to save when we call

From the deepest depths of our wanderings

You’re my salvation, Lord Jesus. I sincerely

ask you to save me from myself:

Help me mortify my flesh, and I will die completely from the pleasures of this life.

I want to be captivated by your presence

Yes, I want to be completely yours;

And my entire existence with you, and you alone

Investing my time and my energies

By the virtue of the Holy Spirit Set my soul free from the chains of Of a prayer-lessness life, to be a lover of all you have to offer

Dear Lord,

I rededicate my life to you

I rededicate my heart for prayer

I dedicate my heart for revelation

I dedicate my time for the word

I want to be a deposit of heaven

I want to become a pursuer of your

Presence, and a true expression of

Your power and dominion on this side of life, so help me Lord, in Jesus mighty name I pray.

Amen!
