How To Dream Big Even As Children

How To Dream Big Even As Children

What’s a dream? Not what happens when you close your eyes and sleep at night. This type of dream is what you hope to become when you grow older. It’s what you imagine yourself to be. Maybe an athlete, drummer, doctor, teacher, software programmer, or developer. It’s the professional you want to become. The first step towards dreaming big about what you hope to become in the future is discovering what you want to become in the future. No one becomes anything without first seeing themselves becoming that. It’s what you choose to become – what you have a passion…

Holding The Hand Of A Friend In Comfort

Holding The Hand Of A Friend In Comfort

John didn’t say a word. He sat still and quiet while his friend cried. Tunji, his best friend at school, just lost his dad and they were in his friend’s room right now. Tunji’s pillows were wet with his tears, the bed covers rough and halfway down on the floor. His cries echoed throughout the room as he laid on the bed. Who could comfort Tunji? There was nothing John could do other than to sit and wait for his friend to talk when he felt like it. Though deeply saddened to see his friend like this, there was nothing…

How To Get God To Answer Your Prayers

How To Get God To Answer Your Prayers

Temiloluwa ensured that everyone around her felt her sadness and displeasure. She sighed sadly, squeezed her face, hissed many times, kept a low profile and didn’t give much attention when spoken to. God had not answered her prayers. This was like the hundredth time she had asked for Tina, her friend, who was failing miserably at school. Her last test score was poor and the rest of the class made fun of her when the teacher announced the scores. Wasn’t God supposed to answer prayers? Wasn’t He the All-Powerful and Great God? The All-Knowing, All-Seeing and All-Doing God? She couldn’t…

How To Have Faith For Healing

Sade stood afar watching how the crowd pushed towards the table stand where some girls stood, sharing fliers for a singing audition. She loved to sing but wasn't so sure she would make an audition. Her toothbrush was her microphone and her younger brother was no help at all. So it was as though her faith was low. She moved towards the crowd, biting her lips and clenching her fists.  "Here goes nothing", she told herself as she got closer. There was a lady in the bible who felt just the way Sade did. A woman with a long-standing health…

Letters To God

Letters To God

Dear GodWell, you start writing a letter with the word "Dear" and God much likes it when you call Him that. Have you ever wondered how writing a letter to God would be like? It's pretty much simple. Just pick a writing pad, notebook, or something to write on and start to write. After starting with a "Dear God", you tell Him why He is so great and powerful, why you love Him, and why people praise and worship Him. Then begin to thank Him for what He has done for you, your parents, siblings, friends and people around you.…

How To Worship Without Distracting Others

How To Worship Without Distracting Others

Remember we said that prayer is like a one-on-one session with God? It’s time alone with God and not open to anyone or anything to cause any distraction. Distracting someone in prayer is not cool at all. So, when you see someone praying maybe during church service or not, it’s not the time to start distracting them. It’s not cool to make a joke then or nudge them to look at someone or something irrelevant or trivial. Don’t tap someone who is praying and say “Hey, look at Tom’s torn jeans” or “See how messed up Susan’s hair is.” It’s…

Worshipping God By Speaking in Tongues

Worshipping God By Speaking in Tongues

Speaking in tongues isn’t just for praying alone as most people would think. As much as the Holy Spirit blessed you with this gift to pray to God, He also gave you the ability to worship God by singing and speaking with the same tongues. You can be speaking in tongues and be worshipping God with it. Have you ever heard adults in church saying people should worship God in another language, our heavenly language? You see, it is something that the Spirit of God empowers believers to do - not just adults, but children also. While worshipping God in…

How To Worship God Through Songs

How To Worship God Through Songs

You can worship God through songs. Lovely songs that come from deep within you. You release these songs to Him as much as the Holy Spirit impresses them on your heart. You sing songs that speak of His goodness, mercies, great deeds, and much more. These songs don’t even have to be known ones that you have heard before. They could be new, just given to you by the Spirit of God because that is what God wants you to say to Him at that particular moment. Sometimes, the Holy Spirit won’t even allow you to write them down. He…

Creativity In Worship With Focused Prayer

Creativity In Worship With Focused Prayer

Yesterday, we started the series on how to be creative with your worship of God. Today we will look at one way to do so - the art of prayer. Prayer is a time of communicating with God one-on-one. Imagine that you are in a room with God and discussing with Him. You open your heart to Him about what you need, what you are going through and more. Prayer is more like that. It’s a closed-room session with God, where no one or anything is allowed in or should be allowed in. And in that room, you can’t be…

How To Be Creative In Your Worship Of God

How To Be Creative In Your Worship Of God

What is worship? This is the act of giving reverence to God through your actions, words, thoughts, and in everything you do. You understand how powerful and holy God is and just want to show him how much you think of Him this way. Your heart wants to connect with Him, to tell Him that you know He is the only true God. Beautiful words come to your mouth from the deepest parts of your heart, and it feels so good to say those words to Him. When words aren’t enough, sometimes you turn them into songs. Songs that overflow…

How To Make Good Decisions In The Family

How To Make Good Decisions In The Family

Most times, family members are the most ignored set of people. We tend to think that they will always be there or they don't need much from us.

You can easily apologize to a random person you stepped on in the street, but you find it difficult to say 'sorry' at home. That is not how it should be! Now take a good look at your relationship with your family members. Do so by asking yourself these questions and…

Praying For Others – Pray For Provision

Another thing you can ask God to do for people is to provide. God is our great provider, and that is the confidence you use to pray for provision for the people around you. The bible tells us that God meets all our needs. He is able to provide our daily bread. He is able to make us lie down in green pastures. He was the One that provided manna for the children of Israel as they journeyed through the wilderness! And just like He met all the needs of the Israelites while they were on their way to the…

Praying For Others – Pray For Protection

Praying For Others – Pray For Protection

The world is full of so much evil; everyone needs to be protected. And this is where your prayer comes in - you can also pray for protection; for people to be protected by God. The bible tells us that God is the ultimate protector of all mankind. If God does not protect someone, then every form of human protection is utterly useless. See this verse of the Bible: If the LORD does not build the house, the work of the builders is useless; if the LORD does not protect the city, it does no good for the sentries to…
