Weekly Prayers: Keep On Keeping On

Dear Someone,

I just prayed this prayer for you, you that don’t know if you still have the ability and courage to keep on going and keeping on. You that just want to be held tight and be told that everything is going to be alright.

May God do what you want most and let all go well for you this week — Psalms 20:4 (CEV). May He turn the ashes of what you’ve gone through into beauty for His display. May He take you where you couldn’t go on your own. May you have the courage to let go of anything that is holding you back and may He work out those things that have been stressing you out.

I pray for you too, you that seems not to be moving on in the right direction despite all your efforts and prayers. May God give you a fresh start this week — Psalms 145:14 (MSG). May He cause unfavourable circumstances to shift in your favour. May what the enemy hoped would work against you, work for you in Jesus Name. May God hear all your prayers. May He set you free from all your fears and save you out of all your troubles and every tight spot — Psalms 34:6.

For everyone else that’s praying with me this morning, may everything be alright for you and may your journey this week continue to be from glory to glory. Things that looked like they would never turn, will turn in the right way for you in Jesus Name. May the peace that only God can give be over everything that is around you, about you, about your families, and your relatives.

Irrespective of whatever comes your way or against you this week, may you always remember that God is on the throne and that everything is going to be alright. May you find healing in your brokenness and satisfaction from the scars of the past. May God give you the Grace to walk boldly knowing that He’s fighting your battles and turning things around for your good.

Be blessed!

In Him.

Go Easy On Yourself

Dear Someone,

This letter is for you, you that have been on a long journey filled with shame (huge), humiliation, fear, hate, anger, pain (a lot), regret, insecurities, doubt, shock, tears and sadness amongst other negative emotions. You that is trying so hard to destroy yourself because of the damage done to you by others. This letter is for you also, you that keep getting hurt and feeling that nobody will ever love or care for you because you are too loud, too fat, too ugly, slow, naive, gullible, stupid, lazy, selfish, provocative or demanding.

Stop Putting Your Self-esteem In The Hands Of Others

Dear Someone,

This letter is for you, you that is stranded somewhere between wanting them back and letting them go. You that’s wondering if you should mend it or let it go. You that is thinking that he or she is probably just the right person but wrong timing, or maybe because you’re just too messed up emotionally to be loved by anyone. This letter is for you, if you think I am writing about you. I hope that you will continue reading?

I know you want me to give you answers as to why people do the things they do. I am sorry to say that you may not get them, at least not in this letter. You won’t get them because life isn’t a TV episode in which everything gets neatly wrapped up with a satisfying conclusion.

Weekly Prayers

Dear Someone,

I just prayed this prayer for you, you that is finding it hard to walk in peace because your path feels difficult. This week, may God fill you with endurance. May God help you to stay grounded, trusting that He will provide an answer to your next big move. May the peace that only God can give, the peace that overcomes fear, anxiety, confusion and troubled hearts be yours this week in that situation.

There is not a weapon formed against you that can prosper. May what the enemy said wouldn’t happen for you, happen in Jesus’ Name. May everything that you have waited on in faith come to you. May every prophecy, every promise, and every blessing come to pass. For everyone that was told to bless you, this week, they will obey in Jesus’ Name. Somebody will bring what you need. Even people that hate you, will bring what you need in Jesus’ Name.

May the voice of rejoicing be heard in your home this week for God’s goodness, mercy, and prosperity in Jesus’ Name. May God favour you beyond your current circumstances and may you find people cross your path who will bring you peace and not chaos.

Until tomorrow, I want you to remember that it is not time to give up. It is not time to turn back. But it’s time to move forward. There is much blessing ahead this week, much, much, blessing. And that blessing shall be yours in Jesus Name. Whatever you set your hands unto shall prosper. Things that need to be rearranged will be rearranged, those that need to be out so others can come in will be out in Jesus Name.

Be blessed!

In Him,
~ Ali Papa.

Trust Your Journey, Even When You Do Not Understand It

Dear Someone,

This letter is for you, you that have become so miserable ever since you started comparing yourself to people you think are doing better than you. You that is feeling depressed from comparing yourself to your friends wishing that you had the friendships they have.

This letter is for you, you that is comparing your Chapter 1 to someone else’s Chapter 20. You that is comparing your beginning to someone else’s middle. You that is trying to be someone that you’re not.

You that stumbled on this letter, I want you to know that this is a long letter, but I wish you would read it to the end. I know how much you hate long letters, and how pressed you are for your time but unfortunately I don’t know of any other way of telling you to stop comparing yourself with others.

You that keep praying for the one you love and forgetting to fix yourself. This letter is for you, you that’s not contented because you’re too busy fixing others to the point that you are forgetting to fix yourself.
