How To Pray When You Don’t Know What To Say.

Sometimes you feel like praying but the words don’t come out of your mouth. What should you do in a situation like that?

Christianity is a way of life, it is not just about what you know but it is about putting the things you know into practice.

I’ve found myself in this situation several times and it can happen for so many reasons.

This happens to me mostly when I’ve prayed about a matter for a long time and in the end, things don’t turn out the way I want.

I usually find it hard to pray in seasons like this because I do not know what to say.

But now, I’ve been to come up with a solution on what to do when I don’t feel like praying.

Sing praises to God

” Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, And into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.”

Psalms 100:4

One of the best ways to get into the presence of God is by singing praises to Him. When we sing praises to God, we gain access to His courts, which means we move to a deeper level of relationship with God.

The Power Of Self-Discipline: How To Master Your Mind And Body

Self-discipline simply means having the ability to control yourself when you are tired or weak.

One of the hardest things to do in life is to stay focused on a task but self-discipline helps you stay focused on your goals.

Self-discipline can also mean doing activities that you do not love doing but those activities are beneficial to you.

For example, watching TV 3 hours daily does not need discipline but reading your book 3 hours daily needs discipline.

Eating 3 times a day does not need discipline but exercising 3 times a day does need discipline.

By now you should be able to understand the concept of how self-discipline works. Self-discipline is beneficial to you but it is not pleasing to your body. You need to have the willpower to resist things that are not adding value to you

The Importance Of Giving Thanks To God

Thanksgiving is a way of showing our appreciation to God for all that He has done for us. It is a time to reflect on our blessings and to be grateful for the people God has put in our lives

Thanksgiving is also a time to remember those who are less fortunate than us. It is a time to reach out to those in need and to help them in any way we can.

Thanksgiving should be our model, it is something we need to do continuously. Thanksgiving should be done only on special days but Thanksgiving should be done every day.

The Bible in Psalm 100 says that “I will enter His gates with Thanksgiving in my heart

This goes to show that the best way to get God’s attention is by thanking Him for all that He has done.

A lot of people focus on the things that God has not done for them and instead, forget about the things that God has done for them.

The truth of the matter is that God blesses us every day even though we are aware or not.

Money and cars are not the most important blessings of life. There are things that money cannot buy.

Money cannot buy peace, money cannot buy joy, money cannot buy true love and money cannot buy life.

One of the biggest blessings God has given to us is the opportunity to be alive.

The Bible in Ecclesiastes 9:4 says “For to him that is joined to all the living there is hope: for a living dog is better than a dead lion.”

This goes to show that being alive is a blessing and it allows you to do and achieve more.

Beauty And Brains: The Wisdom Of Queen Esther

The story of Esther in the Bible is the story of favour and love. Esther is a lady that was
favoured irrespective of her background.

A queen was dethroned and that was what gave Esther the chance to become a queen.

The King asked for beautiful ladies to be showcased before him and out of all the beautiful ladies
Esther was chosen because she was a favoured person.

The Bible says Esther obtained favour in the sight of all who saw her. When her people were faced with a challenge and there was a plan to annihilate her people, she did not close her eyes to them even though she was affected directly.

She spoke to the king on their behalf and the king permitted them to fight back and
defend themselves.

Esther made use of her position to save generations.

That is why the story of Esther is still relevant in today’s world and it will continue to remain
relevant for generations to come.

It teaches us about loving sacrificially irrespective of our position.
One of the things lacking in today’s world is love. People no longer love or care for their

Most people are selfish and have become lovers of themselves. They don’t help other people if
they are not going to benefit from it.

The Power of Faith and Prayer: Nehemiah’s Example in Overcoming Challenges

In this post, I will be discussing about the power of faith and prayer using Nehemiah as our case study

Nehemiah was the man who led the rebuilding of the walls of Jerusalem.

This task seems impossible, but what seems impossible was made possible by one man named Nehemiah.

I believe he dared to rebuild the walls because God gave him the vision.

When God gives you a vision, you will have the confidence and peace that it will be done.

What I want us to learn from the story of Nehemiah is holding on to God’s word.

When God gives His word, it is as good as done. God does not lie instead whatever God says comes into existence even though it wasn’t related before.

Whenever the word of God does not come to pass in your life, it is because you didn’t do your part.

The things you need to do includes, believing the word, praying about the word and taking action.

Every successful leader needs to pray regularly because they will be faced with challenges and the only way to overcome those challenges is to pray to God.

Steps Nehemiah used in overcoming challenges.

When God saw his heart, God gave him the grace to lead the rebuilding of the walls of Jerusalem which were broken.

It wasn’t an easy task because there was a lot of opposition from those who occupied the land of Judah already and also those outside the land of Judah.

In the face of these oppositions, Nehemiah was able to focus on his goals and maintain his integrity.

This is how a true leader should be, being focused until he achieves his goals.
