Happy Thanksgiving everyone. On this special day, I hope that you are enjoying with your family and loved ones. There is so much to be thankful for and there’s no greater joy than being surrounded by your loved ones, sitting around the table exchanging words and eating all the yummy foods. Above all that we will be eating today, may we take the time to give thanks to God. If you can take the time to reflect upon your life, I’m sure that you can testify about God’s goodness and faithfulness in your life.
In these past few weeks, so many events have taken place in our nation. By God’s grace, we are alive. All praise be to God. We get to spend time with our family, creating memories and enjoying amazing food. May we not forget to pray for those who are less fortunate, mourning their loved ones and etc. May we take the time to reach out to our friends and loved ones. As we continue to journey through this day, I want you to meditate on one or two Bible scriptures. If you feel led to write the scriptures down and plaster it on your wall or mirror, go ahead and do so. Count your blessings and name them one by one.
Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. -1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
Praise the Lord, my soul; all my inmost being, praise His holy name. Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all His benefits who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion. -Psalm 103:1-4
This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. -Psalm 118:24
Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise the fruit of lips that openly profess His name. -Hebrews 13:15
I will remember the deeds of the Lord; yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago. I will consider all your works and meditate on all your mighty deeds. Your ways, God, are holy. What god is as great as our God? You are the God who performs miracles; you display your power among the peoples. -Psalm 77:11-15
Thank you for the time to read this blog post. Keep on enjoying yourself. Until next time, stay blessed and rooted in Christ 🙏🏿❤️🥁.

November is here! The 11th month has gracefully arrived and we bless the name of the Lord for the gift of today. When I remember what the Lord has done for me, all I can say is thank you. If I had a thousand tongues, I cannot tell it all. For waking up to see the light of day is more than enough for me. Many times, it’s the greatest gifts of life that we take for granted that others wish that could have but by the grace of God, I’m alive and my heart can sing a new song.
As the Lord has opened our eyes to see another day, it is my prayer that we will draw nearer unto Him. May we be intentional in seeking His face daily. It’s a new month graced with God’s love, covenant of peace, restoration, strength and so much more. In the presence of the Lord, we have it all. It is my prayer that you will recognize what the Lord has already prepared for you.
Child of God, it is a blessing to see another day. God is so Good and worthy of all the praise. May praises rise from the inside and out of you. Give thanks to God in every circumstance ( 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 ). Sweet November is here. May it be a month for you and your loved ones. May you stay rooted in Christ. Stay in prayer and praise lane. Be vigilant and sensitive to the Holy Spirit. God bless you always 🥁🎉🙌🏿.
To all my November birthday celebrants: May God bless you and make His face shine upon you. May you experience the fullness of joy, peace, love and God’s blessings unto you. May all that your heart desires according to God’s will be done for you in Jesus name.
To all the wedding anniversaries and weddings set for this month: May God bless your unions. May the grace, peace, love and God’s blessings abound in your life. It’s your special month. Celebrate 💐🎉🙌🏿🥁
To all the women delivering a new born baby, women trusting God for the fruit of the womb: I pray for safe delivery for you, committing the doctors, nurses and every soul under your care. May the process go according to God’s will. For the women in the waiting room for their bundle of joys, surely your time will come. God hasn’t forgotten you. God is too faithful to fail you. At the appointed time like Sarah, Hannah, Elizabeth, your time will also come in Jesus name 🤰🏾🤰🏾🤰🏾🤱🏾🤱🏾🤱🏾 🙏🏿.
Cheers to the month of November. May you marvel at the goodness of God and testify of His goodness and faithfulness in this land of the living 🎉🥁🙌🏿💃🏿. Have a wonderful month 🙏🏿
Thank you for taking the time to read this blog post. God bless you 🙏🏿. Until next time, stay blessed and rooted in Christ. Remember always that Jesus loves you ❤️.
Enter His gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to Him and praise His name. -Psalm 100:4
C.S. Lewis once said, “In the process of being worshiped, God communicates his presence to men.” There is power in worship when it flows from our hearts to our Heavenly Father. Scripture reminds us in Psalm 22:3 as it is written “Yet you are enthroned as the Holy One; you are the One Israel praises.” It is Christ alone who is worthy of all our praise. In our pursuit to draw nearer to the Father, may we outpour our praises unto Him. In all of the Earth, there is no one like the Lord.
No matter what you are going through in life, there is grace made available for you. There is grace for you to praise the Lord. As scripture reminds us in 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 “Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”. Child of God, rejoicing is not reserved for a certain season. You can rejoice even amidst the trials of life. You can praise God because of who He is and that alone is reverence to the Father. There is power in praise. When we learn to magnify God for who He is, our perspective of our situation is renewed. We gain wisdom and a greater insight of the matter. There is power in prayer but there’s a greater measure of oil in our praise. When we look at the life of David, a man after God’s heart, we can can truly see the fruitfulness and fragrance of praise throughout his life. David didn’t reserve praise for a particular season but rather He gave thanks to God in every season. Even when it was unlikely to give praise, He poured out His heart unto God. David didn’t allow His circumstance to define who God was in His life. He didn’t allow His situation to hinder Him from praising God. He pressed through in prayer and praise. It’s the same reason that we can too can push forward in praise. We must not become so fixated on our situations that we allow it to determine our stance on praising God. As for the situations, they are bound to come but may they not negate your heart posture in any season of your life.
It is my prayer that the power of praise will be exerted through your life. May souls come to the knowledge of Jesus through the life that you live here on Earth. May your mouth continually declare of the goodness and the faithfulness of God in this land of the living. So with that in mind, I will be sharing with you all song ministrations that have been a blessing unto me throughout this month of October. I hope that they will be a blessing unto you too.

Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not people, because you know that the Lord will reward each one for whatever good they do, whether they are slave or free. -Ephesians 6:7
As children of the Lord, we are called to serve. In everything that we do, our lives must be a reflection of God. Our heart of service unto man should be governed by love. To serve without love is not service at all. Scripture reminds us in Matthew 20:28 that “For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.” The greatest form of service is love that Christ demonstrated unto us. In the same way, we are called to be an embodiment of that which we have received. In everything that we do as scripture reminds us in Colossians 3:23-24 as it is written “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.” The posture of our hearts is very essential in everything That we do.
It is my prayer that our lives will be a reflection of God in everything that we find ourselves doing. Whether it is serving in church, at home, school or wherever the Lord positions us, may it be a sweet fragrance that will draw others to know the Lord. Service is crucial and it matters to God. I pray for the grace for each of us to represent Christ wherever we go. The world is watching but God is also counting on us. May we not look unto man for reward but may we be reminded that our inheritance is Christ who is our Great Rewarder. Let us serve in love. Let our lives speak louder than the words we speak. May everything that we find ourselves doing be an imprint of all that we have already received through Christ, our Lord and Personal Savior.
God’s work done in God’s way will never lack God’s supplies.
Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain. -1 Corinthians 15:58
No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money. -Matthew 6:24
And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. -Colossians 3:17
Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet. I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you. Very truly I tell you, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him. Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them. -John 13:14-17

Marriage & Destiny Fast 🙌🏿🥁💃🏿. After 21 days of fasting and prayer, we celebrated. It was such a blessing. It was so glorious indeed. It was so worth it. God is so Faithful 🙏🏿. So speechless. Such an unforgettable experience. God’s timing is always best. The God who makes a way where there seems to be no way. It ended in Praise. On the last day of the Marriage & Destiny Fast, God’s sin proposed to God’s daughter and it was such glorious way to end the marriage Fast.
If you partook in the marriage and destiny fast, you already know that it was fully loaded. From the messages, prayer sessions and worship time, God had orchestrated His best for His children. Though waking up at 5am wasn’t always easy but it was so worth it. From 5am, 12pm, 6pm and 12am prayers, we fired up 🔥 and God sustained us. I will do it all over again.
October was so amazing. The Marriage & Destiny Fast was apart of the goodness. We prayed and praised. It was a joyous celebration. I pray for anyone trusting God for marriage, I join my faith with yours that God will surely show Himself mighty in our lives. God is so Faithful and His timing is always best. May we continue to put our trust in God, seeking His face always in every season. Surely, you too will one day testify of God’s goodness and faithfulness in your life. Remember always that God hasn’t forgotten you. His appointed time is unlike man but surely He will fulfill His promises concerning you.

A day to forever remember 🙌🏿🥁🎺. “NSPPD America Prayer Conference”. Just imagine 20,000 people from all around the world in one place worshipping the Lord? It is such a delight knowing the Lord. Today was a day of joy. From the sound of worship to the message and just the feel of being in Africa was just amazing. The joy of seeing children worshipping, dancing and enjoying the presence of God. I’m just in awe of God’s goodness. What God cannot do, does not exist. My heart was home and it was so sweet ❤️
On October 8th, 2022, the widely acclaimed daily online prayer New Season Prophetic Prayers and Declarations (NSPPD) held its first ever Prayer Meeting in Houston Texas, United States of America gathering over 20,000 people.
What is NSPPD? NSPPD is an acronym that stands for New Season Prophetic Prayers and Declarations. It is an online praying platform that takes place on YouTube at 2am EST from Monday-Friday. Depending on your time zone. In Nigeria 🇳🇬, NSPPD is held at 7am.
NSPPD is such a blessing. It is my prayer that if you are not a partaker, that henceforth, you will press on in prayer. Tell your friends and their friends. Let your neighbor and family members know about this prayer platform.
The NSPPD America Prayer Conference was such a memorable experience. Words are not enough to describe the presence of God. 20,000 souls from every tribe and tongue, came from the distance to come to be a partaker in the presence of the Lord. If only this conference can take place three times a year, it be so amazing. If you were there, you already know what took place. God is so Good 🙏🏿.
Thank you for taking the time to read this blog post. God bless you 🙏🏿.
Everyday is an opportunity to tell others about Jesus. Days like these serve as a reminder for me to never stop telling others about One who saved me and who takes joy in pursuing His children daily. We are living in a very sensitive time and it’s not the time to be silent. When you avail yourself to the Lord, He will use you for His glory. The assignment is not about you. It is about Jesus! You are the vessel! Make room and let Him have His way. There’s a time and season for everything but we as believers must know the season. So today, I went to the computer lab. While there, a young girl walked in but the computer that she was trying to use wasn’t working so I just told her that she can use mine. She came to print out some papers but interestingly enough the printer wasn’t working and just then we started having a conversation. She told me her name and it just marveled me because it was confirmation of the name that Holy Spirit has been highlighting to me since August. So the Holy Spirit has been highlighting the name “Esther” so heavily. I go places and while there I will meet people by the name of “Esther”. I will see the name “Esther” plastered on the wall and etc.
The girl that I met at the computer lab, her name was Angie. For some reason, I asked her if that was just her name since people sometimes have nicknames. Just moments after, she said her name is Hadassah. Hadassah is also known as Esther. Her name alone led to another conversation and it just overflowed and before I knew it, she broke down in tears. I was just encouraging her to run the race and to seek the Lord always. We spoke for a while and it was just a precious moment. And I couldn’t help but cry when she said these words “I really needed to hear these words today”. Moments later, another guy walked in from Columbia and that was just another precious moment. What was so amazing was that they were both Hispanic and they were pursuing the same degree. I will be here forever in telling about this joyous moment but I’m reminded that we must continue to preach the Gospel and encourage one another to journey intentionally with the Lord. God has positioned us in different places for a purpose. When we avail ourselves for the Masters use, He will have His way with us. You may not know what to say but Holy Spirit will speak through you. Holy Spirit, just always has a way of make His children smile. Today was just among one of the glorious days of putting a smile on my face. Sweet Holy Spirit ❤️
Thank you for taking the time to read this blog post. May you be encouraged to tell others about Jesus. Encourage others! Pray for others. God bless you 🙏🏿.

Story Behind “The Marriage & Destiny Fast” 💍💐
“The marriage Fast was birthed when a strong desire came upon Apostle Dominic Osen and Prophetess Lesley Osen to solidify the hand of God upon their lives and their union in 2015. When God brought together His two vessels of honor, the man and woman of God had initially intended to keep this fast between themselves. However, through prophetic action, the Lord directed Prophetess Lesley to announce the fast on social media. This launched the 21 day Marriage Fast to the world with so many people joining in for the first time. Nearly 7 years later, this annual Fast, globally known as “The 21 Day Marriage & Destiny Fast” has become a pinnacle spiritual commitment. It sets those who participate, on a journey to deliverance, healing, breakthrough, miracles, and the unparalleled blessing of God. Despite its household name, the “Marriage and Destiny Fast” can be equally identified as the “Life Changing Fast”. This Fast also deals with finances, physical, emotion and spiritual health, demonic stronghold and patterns.”

Welcome into the month of October. The month that feels like July. It’s the month that I absolutely love for many reasons. It’s arrival is fresh and so crisp. It’s the tenth month of the year and we are alive. Praise be to God. It’s a delight to see yet another day by God’s grace.
It is my prayer that as you have crossed over into the month of October, you will be glad and rejoice in each day that the Lord unravels unto you. May this be a month graced with new beginnings and may your ears hear the sound of good news. May you experience the peace of God ( Isaiah 26:3 ). As scripture reminds us in John 14:1 “Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, trust also in me.” No matter what may come your way, may your find rest in knowing that God is in Control.
October is here and we will learn the essence of putting our faith in Christ alone. Afterall, God is the One who holds the key to our lives. If we don’t put our faith in Him, then who will we depend on? We must learn to trust in the Lord ( Isaiah 26:3-4 ).
Child of God, may your heart find rest in God alone. No matter what this season may be looking like for you, know that God is with you. He is present amidst the storms. He is your God. Cast your burdens and find rest in the presence of your Maker ( Matthew 11:28-30 ). Instead of worrying, may we learn the essence of trusting in Christ. As scripture reminds us in Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.”. May you fix your eyes on Jesus not on the storm. God is aware of the storm. Nothing catches Him by surprise. Praise & Praise. Be rest assured that God is with you. May you experience peace that only Christ gives as you journey with Him.
As we have marched into the month of October, may it be full of beautiful surprises your way. May you be sensitive to the Holy Spirit. May God cause you to smile and may you testify of His goodness in this land of the living. May you experience peace, joy, refreshing and all of God’s best for you.

September is here in full bloom. My goodness. There is something about how September welcomes itself. It is so beautiful and refreshing. Child of God, it is a new season. The air is so crisp and fresh. The smell of the breeze is warmth all by itself. You are here and that is what matters. God has so much in stored for us all in a special way. May you not miss all that God is doing as we have transitioned into glory.
Child of God, it is my prayer that as this day has been unveiled to you, that you will be intentional in all that you do. May you seek to know the Lord more ( Psalm 27:4 ). But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well ( Matthew 6:33 ). May you be grounded in the Lord. Spend time with Holy Spirit more than ever before. May you declare with your mouth “More of You Lord and None of Me”.
Today is a gift that so many didn’t get to see but you are here so choose to live intentionally. Scripture says in Psalm 127:1 “Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain.” My prayer for you is this: May you allow the Lord to have His way in your way. May you seek His face in every facet of your life. May you be obedient to His instruction in this season. Child of God, The Lord is the ultimate rock and without Him, we cannot do anything ( 1 Samuel 2:2 )
Daughter, choose to find rest in God. No matter the storms of life, be still and know that He is God. Scripture says in Psalm 46:5 “God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at break of day.” The Lord is your Helper. Child of God, your Helper is the Holy Spirit. You have a friend that loves you so much and wants you to have communion with Him. If you don’t know Holy Spirit, get to know Him. He awaits you with great joy.
Son, arise and take your rightful position. Draw nearer unto God ( James 4:8 ). Remember that you are created for a purpose but you will never know your assignment unless you seek the Lord. I pray for wisdom in all areas of your life. May your life be a reflection of God that souls will come to the knowledge of Him. I plead the blood of Jesus over your mind. May your thoughts be governed by the words that only God speaks of and towards you. You are a soldier for Christ. You are child of God! You are so loved and remembered by God. May you experience the fullness of joy, abundant peace and God’s blessings in Jesus name 🙏🏿. I pray for a release of Godly men around your life; souls that will pray for you, speak life over you and give you sound advice. You, son, are a gift to this world. Shine forth! Light you are for Kingdom of God.
Child of God, Rejoice. Joy is here. All round round celebration, congratulations and good news. We are marching forward in greatness because the Lord is on our side and we are on the winning side. Child of God, Victory is your name. Pressing forward ( Philippians 3:13 ). May you pursue and take back all that the enemy has stolen from you. Recover it all! Be refreshed and restored in Jesus name.
May your heart take delight in spending time with ABBA Father. May you taste and see if the goodness of God in this land of the living. It’s birthing season! Deliver the gift that God has deposited within you. Scripture says in John 16 “A woman giving birth to a child has pain because her time has come; but when her baby is born she forgets the anguish because of her joy that a child is born into the world. So with you: Now is your time of grief, but I will see you again and you will rejoice, and no one will take away your joy.” The time is now! Rejoice ( Philippians 4:4 ). Take joy in the One who love you ( Zephaniah 3:17 ). Trust the process ( Habakkuk 3:17 ). Receive wisdom ( Proverbs 4:7 ). Fix your eyes on Jesus, your midwife ( Hebrews 12:2 ). May you receive the instruction that is needed to bring forth your miracle. We come against every form of distraction ( Luke 10 ). May you learn to find rest like Mary at the Masters feet. It’s your season to rejoice! Surely, you will rejoice 🎈🥁🎈. I celebrate you 🎉🥁. Wear the crown that God has given you 💐.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable if anything is excellent or praiseworthy think about such things. -Philippians 4:6-8
As a child of God, we can experience the gift of peace. It has been freely given unto us. This gift is an offering of God’s we can never pay to receive. Peace is the fruit of the spirit. It can overflow in your life if you make room for it. You and I are recipients of peace. This peace, that God gives is priceless. It is not seasonal. It is not reserved for certain occasions or individuals. It is a blessing that rains down like Heaven’s dew but we must be willing to receive it with open arms.
When we take a look at our key scripture, we are reminded to not be anxious about anything but in every situation, by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, we should present our requests to God. Peace is a gift but in order to experience the fullness of it, there’s an instruction tied to it. The Instruction is this “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” You see, anxiety can rob us from experiencing the peace that God has given us. Instead of worrying, we must learn to trust God. We must lay our burdens to the One who cares for us and has a plan for us. We must trade our worries for peace. We must give thanks to God in every situation. Even when the storm doesn’t make sense, choose to give thanks to the One who is in control of it all.
Child of God, it is when we are obedient, that we are able to walk in light of the peace that God gives us. The peace that God gives us is anew and refreshing for each new day. Scripture tells us in John 16:33 that “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” As believers, we have an assurance in Christ alone; our living hope. Jesus has already made known unto us that in this world will have trouble but we must take heart. We must find rest in the One who loves us. We are Overcomer’s in Jesus name.
One of the greatest hindrances when it comes to experiencing peace is our mindset. Too often, we hold unto our baggages with a tight grip. We are so wrapped up in our thoughts that we can’t experience peace. To think of it, another thing that stands in the way of us experiencing peace is an unforgiving spirit. Scripture reminds us in Matthew 5:23-24 which says “Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother or sister has something against you, leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to them; then come and offer your gift.” If peace is an offering of God’s love to us, we must let go of anything that stands in the way of us experiencing peace. We must let go and let God have His way in our lives. With every gift given, we must make room to receive. Child of God, peace is available for you. It is here. It is not far fetched. You can clothe yourself in the finest of clothing or try to find peace in mere humans beings must you can never experience it’s fullness until you seek God. Peace is life in Christ. Peace is alive. Peace is priceless because the price has already been paid for you and I on the Cross of Calvary.
Thank you for taking the time to read this blog post. God bless you. It is my prayer that you will experience the abundant peace that can only be found in Jesus Christ. Until next time, stay blessed and rooted in Christ 🙏🏿.
Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. -2 Corinthians 4:17
George Mueller once said “If we desire for our faith to be strengthened, we should not shrink from opportunities where our faith may be tried, and therefore, through trial, be strengthened.” You see, so often as we believers we lost heart due the challenges we face. We forget that Earth is not our home and the trials that we face are temporary contractions. Like a mother getting ready to give birth to her precious baby, the contractions pull a cord but it never stops the woman from pressing and pushing one breath at a time. For this she knows that, her present sufferings are not compared to the miracle she’s about to receive.
No matter what we face in this side of life, God is with us. Scripture reminds us in Deuteronomy 31:6 “Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.” It is a joy to know that God will never leave us or forsake us. There are moment where it seems as though that God isn’t present but it’s those very moments that His presence envelops us.
The reality of journeying through life is this: we will face trials of many kinds. The contractions will come but we will not give way to doubt and it’s cousin, fear. We will stand firm in our faith in Christ alone. The contractions is apart of the story. It is making room for the new thing that God is doing in your life. Though the pain may arise, like Job, we will not curse God. We will fix our eyes on Jesus, who is the author and the finisher of our faith.
Child of God, it is my prayer that you will fix your eyes not on what is seen but much rather what is unseen because what is seen is temporary and what is unseen is eternal. As believers, we have hope. There is Hope for the living in Jesus, our Cornerstone. This hope we have will never fail. I pray for grace and strength for each new day for you. May you receive new eyes to see only what God wants you to see, ears to hear One voice, and heart to learn and receive from your Heavenly Father.
May you be reminded of this truth and assurance in Romans 8:18. May you stand firm on this word, declaring it with your mouth and believing it with your heart as you say “I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.” The glory is within us. The light of Christ lives in you. Your pain is birthing purpose but God is with you in the labor room. So push, one breath at a time and remember always that God is in your midst. He is not far fetched. Daughter, God is with you. Son, God is with you. Press forward in greatness but never forget the One who has been there for you throughout the journey.
