Since February this year, my beautiful friend and sister, Mrs Kemi Olowe and I have been doing 6am prayers together in our respective “prayer/war rooms” in our homes – after being inspired by the film “War Room”.
Just the other day, we both thought about sharing this experience with our friends and loved ones and that includes those who follow our blogs. You can check hers out at http://www.9monthsandwaiting.com
So throughout the month of April, I’ll be following a devotional plan with prayers based on the names of God, which I’d love to share with you. We love singing: 🎤 I am a friend of God… He knows my name… 🎤 But do we know His?
Don’t worry, there will still be posts about Marriage and some more snippets from my new book coming out in June: “God Made Sex and He Saw That It Was Good” (Don’t forget to preorder for the discounted price lol).
But I feel that most importantly, as we enter the fourth month of the year – it’s essential for us to pray and to think about who our God is and what His names mean about Him and therefore what they mean to us.
I for one can testify that througout last month alone, He truly has indeed been Jehovah Jireh – which is God our Provider. Mr B and I made a huge financial investment which was great and perfect but also left me worrying about our cash flow going forwards, especially with Baby B on the way.
(Thank you to my beautiful Assumpta for making these personalised tea bag pouches. If you’re a lover of poetry and creativity, check out her beautiful blog at http://www.metodayyoutomorrow.com)
But just as I was worrying about all this money and all the things we’d need to buy for Baby B (and I know that worrying is something that we’re not supposed to do lol) God just kept showing up in awesome ways for us. Now we have our financial investment in place AND God is restoring all we need to go forward. All because of prayer and calling on that name of His specifically. Nothing was done in our own efforts or strength besides knowing the name of our God and praying on it. That’s the kind of Jehovah Jireh God we serve.
So this month, let’s pray together all around the world via this blog, just thanking God for who He is by recognising the names by which we can call upon Him – and may we be able to share our testimonies together too, of just how awesome the God that we serve truly is in Jesus’ name.
Whether it’s praying for a husband, or for the guy you’re with to step up his act and stop dragging his feet lol … Or financial, work or school or health or ministry related… Whatever is in your heart and on your mind… Take it to God and remember who He is and all that He has the power to do in His infinite mercy, grace and love – and most importantly, by His Holy Name.
So… Here’s the prayer for today:
April 1st 2016
Jehovah El Elmeth
Meaning: LORD God of Truth.
Jehovah El Emeth thank you for the perfect purity of truth. Thank you that there is no confusion in truth. Truth is your viewpoint on a matter, and thank you that you have not sought to hide your truth or make it difficult for me to grasp. Your truth is readily available to me in your Word. Thank you for giving me the ability to read, Jehovah El Emeth, and for giving me the ability to discern your truth from what the world tries to paint as truth, but rather is a lie from the devil. Thank you for the power of your truth that makes life’s choices easier to make when aligned under your truth. In Christ’s name, Amen
“I entrust my spirit into your hand. Rescue me, LORD, for you are a faithful God.” Psalms 31:5 NLT
Faith, Hope and Love
