Praise Wednesday

Hallelujah!

Hallelujah!

When my soul was graveyard’s fashionista and made her bed in hell, you turned my mourning into dancing.

When I was chained, groping for this and that, sniffing for crumbs to survive, you made a way in the wilderness.

Hallelujah!

Hallelujah!

When I was drowning in my sorrows, you parted the river so I could walk through it.

When I was choking on my fears, you gave me living waters to drink.

Hallelujah!

Hallelujah!

When I was lost, you came to my rescue.

Now I drink from the well of salvation.

Hallelujah!

Hallelujah!

Deborah’s Song : Praise You!

Faithful is Yah, so unchanging!

I give you praise for all you have done.

My heart sings joyfully to you.

Great I Am.

Wonderful Counsellor.

Mighty Yah.

Everlasting Father.

Prince of Peace.

Where can I go without you

gazing at me,

restoring my hope,

releasing your plans and

bringing them to fruition?

Yah, you are the one and only God!

Great is thy faithfulness.

I will praise you in the morning.

I will praise you at the break of day,

at night and forever more.

Today you are the same as yesterday,

oh! so unchanging.

Praise you my King!

Praise you my LORD!

Praise you my one and only!

Praise you!

All For His Glory

“Whatever I have, it is my desire that it is from the Most High’s hands. Whatever I do, I pray will be His doing and approved by Him. For I live to give Him all the glory.” DENyamekye

Peter and John had this same desire and prayer as I do when they lived to fulfil their purpose in Christ.

They were without doubt that God was with them. Among other disciples of Jesus, they had received and been baptised in the Holy Spirit (John 20:22, Acts 2:4) and believed Jesus when he said they would do greater works than He did if they believe in Him (John 14:12). Everything they did was for the glory of God in Christ.

Peter and John knew that without Christ they were nothing (John 15:5) and their mission was not to build treasures for themselves on earth (Matt.6:19-20). Instead their heart was knitted with their purpose which was to preach the gospel and perform miracles of healing and deliverance.

This is evidenced in Peter’s response to the cripple at the temple gate called Beautiful. When he asked Peter and John for money they replied in humility

“I don’t have any silver or gold for you. But I’ll give you what I have. In the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, get up and walk!” (Acts 3:6 NLT).

They were bold because they exercised their Christ delegated authority and power knowing that whatever they ask in Jesus’ name will be granted to them as He had promised (John 15:7). As they do the works of Christ in his name, Christ brings glory to the Father through them (John 14:13).

After the cripple was healed, Peter knew that he had to give honour and glory to God for performing this miracle of healing when he saw all the people running towards him and John. He had a reverential fear of God and did not for one moment want the crowd to think he and John had any power of their own to heal anyone.

The bible states that Peter “saw his opportunity and addressed the crowd”:

“People of Israel,” he said, “what is so surprising about this? And why stare at us as though we had made this man walk by our own power or godliness? 13For it is the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob—the God of all our ancestors—who has brought glory to his servant Jesus by doing this. This is the same Jesus whom you handed over and rejected before Pilate, despite Pilate’s decision to release him.

14You rejected this holy, righteous one and instead demanded the release of a murderer. 15You killed the author of life, but God raised him from the dead. And we are witnesses of this fact!

16“Through faith in the name of Jesus, this man was healed—and you know how crippled he was before. Faith in Jesus’ name has healed him before your very eyes. (Acts 3:12-16NLT).

May God help us all to be as Peter and John as we live to fulfil our God given purpose on earth; Giving him all the glory and praise for every accomplishment however small or large.

Have a blessed day in Christ.

Petition & Praise: Self-sacrifice and Surrender

Deliver me from every deception O LORD, my Father!

You desire truth in the inward parts.

You are the only one who cleanses my soul.

I offer myself to you once again as a living sacrifice.

I give you my heart in exchange for your truth, never to be re-sold.

All within me bows before you. My entrails hail you as LORD!

My knees bend on their own accord. Freely my mouth utters praises and my body willingly follows your leading.

Fastened by your Word, I abide in your presence forevermore.

Scriptural inspiration:

“Buy the truth, and do not sell it” Prov. 23:23

“Behold, You desire truth in the inward parts” (Psa.51:6)

“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. 2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” (Romans 12:1-2 KJV)

Prayer of Thanksgiving & Exaltation (Praise) unto God. (Based on Psalm 125, 126)

Merciful Father,

We give you thanks and praise for you have delivered us from captivity, that we may sing praises to you, that our mouths may be filled with laughter.
People see what you have done and say among themselves “the LORD has done great things for them” (Ps.126:2).

May some who are enemies be like Rahab LORD and turn from their wicked ways, when they hear of your might and power in our lives.

May they show us favour and accept your Right Hand and be set free, washed and cleansed by the blood of Jesus.

We are more than conquerors!

We give you thanks and praise! We shout for joy because “the LORD has done great things for us and we are glad” (Ps. 126:3).

When we sowed in tears there were times when we thought that we would never overcome.

But how dare we, for we serve a God who is oh so faithful, one who never changes. He is the same yesterday today and forever more.

You said in your word “those who trust in the LORD are like Mount Zion, which cannot be moved but abides forever.”(Ps 125:1).

We trust you LORD!

You are our Protector, always surrounding us as the mountains surround Jerusalem.

Father you decreed that “the sceptre of wickedness shall not rest on the land allotted to the righteous” (Ps.125:3).

You have preserved us from evil, from the decrees of the powers of darkness by your mighty power.

May your presence abide with us forever more!

In Jesus’ Mighty Name, Amen.

Yahweh Sabaoth (The LORD of Hosts)

F97464E1-9BB7-4E73-8C98-2D1107C48F39

Merciful God,
My heart is overwhelmed for
you came down from your majestic throne as a Man of war leading your armies and broke through the fortress of my imprisonment,
the cage of my captivity.

You battled the hordes of hell, the powers of darkness, in the abyss of deception and the trenches of affliction.

You took hold of the horned Prince of darkness and hurled him out of my way and lifted me up, washed me clean and set me along your glorious path.

Your wonders to perform.
Your acts to make known.
Your works to declare.
Your will to be done.

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

God’s Voice – The Greatest Sound of All (Praise Poem)

psalm 29

God Almighty,
talking, chirping, mooing and barking
are sounds that we hear from some
of your creatures great and small.
The creature in your image has the
greatest sound of them all.

When we hear the sound of the gusts
of wind, drops of rain, hooting cars,
the screeching train and the cracking
violent sound of thunder from the sky,
it’s the daily melody of Your created earth.

When we hear the sound of the
rise and fall of spluttering waves,
the ship docking and berthing,
ocean sea gulls wailing and squawking,
it’s the melange of stillness and squalling
of the coastal shores you created.

None of these sounds LORD, have
the power to change lives as your
mighty voice, nor match the sound of
your soothing words of comfort when
we seek your fortitude.

There is no sound on earth greater
than your voice that “thunders over the
mighty sea, [and] is powerful;majestic,
splits the mighty cedars; ..
shatters the cedars of Lebanon..
twists mighty oaks and strips the
forests bare…everyone shouts, “Glory!”

So to you we ascribe all our worship,
declaring: “The LORD rules over the
flood waters.The LORD reigns as king
forever.The LORD gives his people strength.

The LORD blesses them with peace (2)
“The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved:

he uttered his voice, the earth melted.” (3)
