Stop Breaking Your Heart 

Dear Someone,

This letter is for you, you that is lonely at heart. You that is emotionally drained and messed up. You that found yourself saying, “I was foolish. I was lying to myself.” You that no longer know if you wish to drown yourself in love, vodka or the sea. You that have witnessed things that have changed you forever. This letter is for you, you that have lost your mind trying to understand the one that said they love you.

Accept The Criticism For Being Silent

Dear Someone,

This letter is for you, you that is fluent in silence and keeping a lot to yourself because it is difficult to find people that understand you. This letter is for you, you that is using silence to express your pain, frustration and disappointment. This letter is for you too, you whose silence is often seen either as snobby, weakness, foolishness, cocky, ignorance, bitchiness, stubbornness, arrogance or as an acceptance of defeat.

Trust God With The Impossible

Dear Someone,

This letter is for you, you that have been wandering through the arduous path of infertility, futile IVF’s, tears, and setbacks. This letter is for you, you that recently experienced loss through miscarriage or failed adoptions. I am not sending you this letter to make things tougher for you than it is already because I know that one of the most difficult and emotionally painful things that couples deal with, especially for women, is the inability to have a child.

Be Proud Of The Person You Are Becoming

Dear Someone,

This letter is for you, you that is letting people who do so little for you control so much of your mind and emotions because of their actions and words.

I know this might sound strange to you at first, and possibly for a long time to come but as someone who once suffered from depression and overcame it, I want you to understand that the inaccurate version of you that people have created in their mind is not your responsibility just as the version of yourself that you have created in your own mind is not others’ responsibility.

The way people treat you, the names they call and labelled you with, the horrible things and lies they say about you, are all a reflection and a statement of who they are as a human being and not a true representation of who you are in the eyes of your creator.

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.
Ali Papa.

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.
