“Who among you fears the Lord
and obeys the voice of his servant?
Let him who walks in darkness
and has no light
trust in the name of the Lord
and rely on his God” (Is 50:10)
These are difficult times. There are days when everything around you makes no sense. It seems like God has gone to sleep and you are alone on earth. There are times when fear wants to arrest you, to take you as prisoner. There are times when you don’t know what to pray for. Things do not go as planned or as prayed for. There is confusion in the land and stress all around you. Life is getting more difficult. You feel like falling down the hill with nothing to grasp to stop to fall. The world looks up side down. The Bible seems silent when you search for a Word of strength. The devil plays with your ind. He tells you that this spiritual darkness will continue forever, that hope is lost and can never be found.
I want to remind you of the Word of God! Even in the darkest hour, God is still God. He is the covenant keeping God! You may shake and you may weep but suddenly, the storm is over and the rainbow will shine brighter than ever. God will speak again and your spirit will be revived. God will send His servants to encourage you with living words. Your prayers shall be answered faster than you can imagine. This is God’s promise: the light will always defeat the darkness!!!
This is my word to you: No matter what…no matter what you see around you… no matter what you hear on the news… no matter what the doctor says to you… no matter what people say or don’t say… remember that Jesus Christ is the same, yesterday, today and forever! Hold on! Trust God to the end! You are still breathing! Trust God! The devil is a liar! God is the faithful God! He can change your circumstances in the twinkling of an eye. Reject fear, depression, discouragement and doubt! These are enemies! Refuse to accept them! Hope is on the way! Your pain today will become a testimony tomorrow! God knows His job! He will wipe all your tears! You will laugh again! Our God can never fail!
Even now, open your mouth and confidently say: “I am a child of God! No matter what, I trust You, my God! I trust You to the very end! Your grace is sufficient for me even when I don’t understand what is happening to me! I live by faith in Your Word! I shall rejoice! Glory to You alone! In Jesus name, amen!”


In Christ I declare: The anointing of the Holy Spirit resting on me is God’s eternal gift to me! God’s words in my mouth, are God’s eternal gift to me and to all my (natural and spiritual) descendants! This is not an isolated gift! This is a family blessing! No devil can stop this flow of eternal blessings! I believe that God’s Word and God’s Spirit must rest on you, my children! Now and forever! Let’s rejoice! To God be all the glory! In Jesus name, amen!

“As for Me, this is My covenant with them,” says the Lord. “My Spirit, who is on you, will not depart from you, and My words that I have put in your mouth will always be on your lips, on the lips of your children and on the lips of their descendants—from this time on and forever,” says the Lord” (Is 59:21)


“O Lord, help us to hear the serpents rattle before we feel its fangs” (T. DeWitt Talmage 1832-1902). This is a prayer for the gift of discernment of spirits. You need faith, wisdom and strength to avoid being wounded by the fiery arrows of the devil or to be bitten by spiritual rattle snakes! God does not tempt anyone and He cannot be tempted by the devil. Be like God! Medically and spiritually is the same: Prevention is better than cure! I pray that God helps you to always walk in victory! To God be all the glory! In Jesus name, amen!
The Lord Jesus Christ said this: “Behold, I give you the authority to tread upon serpents and scorpions, and upon all the power of the enemy, and nothing will injure you” (Lk 10:19)



“Husbands, love your wives as Christ loved the church and gave his life for it. He did this to make the church holy by cleansing it, washing it using water along with spoken words. Then he could present it to himself as a glorious church, without any kind of stain or wrinkle—holy and without faults. So husbands must love their wives as they love their own bodies. A man who loves his wife loves himself” (Eph 5:25-28)


Today is my dear husband’s birthday. I try to find words to express my gratitude to God for giving me Richmond Leigh as my husband. This March we shall be married 43 years. It looks like such a long time and yet, it is just like yesterday when he asked me to marry him on a cold winter day. We were both so young… I was surprised at his ‘bold love’. Happily I said ‘yes’! We were both class mates in the first year, in the College of Medicine Timisoara, Romania. I have never seen ‘a black man’ before. Both my parents and his family did not approve of our marrying so young. The Romanian Communist Government at that time discouraged marriages between Romanians and foreigners. Because of that, we had a lot of problems at the beginning. But we insisted to marry and we did it. Our love encouraged us. We had two children while still in school. My parents eventually accepted Richmond and loved him as their only son. They helped taking care of John and Alina.


We graduated from the Medical school and in 1980 we came to settle in Nigeria. I had no idea where Nigeria is. I could not speak English. I was a young wife and mother. I have never eating eba, yam, ocro, egussi, banga and the rest of Nigerian soups. I was missing my Romanian food. We initially stayed in Benin City and worked at the Specialist Hospital over there. In 1983 we came to Warri and opened a private hospital called ‘lily Clinic’. We had Jemine, our second daughter while in Warri. In 1986 I had a crisis conversion and became born again. Later, my husband reconciled himself with God. In March 2000 we both resigned from medical practice. We started Father’s House Bible Church. God has blessed us beyond imagination! We are now pastors in full time ministry. We have six wonderful grandchildren. We are very happy with God and with ourselves!


These are just few guide lines describing our life together. I want to say that next to knowing Jesus Christ as my Savior and my Lord, my husband is my best friend, my mentor and my hero. By the grace of God I say that he truly loves me. He is a wonderful husband to me. I bless God for the day when we got married! Both of us were very young then. But he was much more mature than me, having great ideas on how to have a successful marriage. Most of his ideas worked wonderfully. He just knows how to be a good husband. He helped me transition from my Romanian way of thinking to understand the Nigerian culture which is very different. Without him I could have been lost in Nigeria. He patiently explained to me again and again what to say and what to do so that I can ‘fit in the system’ without creating social crisis or wounding my own conscience. His work as my teacher can only be rewarded by God. He continues to remind me and correct me again and again when I am ignorant or when I make social mistakes. This is a very important point I want to make: my husband has never corrected me in public, in the presence of his family or even in the presence of our children. All ‘lectures’ where done in private when we are alone! In these 43 years of marriage, no man or woman has ever heard us quarrel or argue. To God be all the glory!


My husband is the reason why I am so happy living in Nigeria. His style of teaching me is wonderful. He has an excellent spirit like Daniel. He polishes me like gold until he is sure that I am confident enough to stand strong in the presence of friends and enemies!  He will not rest until I become ‘perfect’ at what I am doing. For my husband, improvement is not good enough. He does not want me to be just a successful survivor but he wants me to be a true woman of God and an inspiration to many. He compliments me often. He wants me to be the best God wants me to be. He always raises the standard, stretching my mental, emotional and spiritual muscles. He encourages me to be a strong leader. I prefer a quiet private life style. But he tells me that I must stand strong by his side without any fear or inferiority complex.  Like the song says, my husband is the wind beneath my wings.


We are now older but so very much in love. We are growing together as a Christian couple and as spiritual parents to many. If I continue to write about my husband and our life together I will write many books. There are so many things to share. But for now, I stop here, giving thanks to God for his life, on this his birthday! God bless you my husband, Dr. Richmond Sisan Leigh with the eternal glorious blessings of Christ! In Jesus name, amen! r-and-l-2



“No one calls for justice; no one pleads a case with integrity. They rely on empty arguments, they utter lies; they conceive trouble and give birth to evil. They hatch the eggs of vipers and spin a spider’s web. Whoever eats their eggs will die, and when one is broken, an adder is hatched. Their cobwebs are useless for clothing; they cannot cover themselves with what they make” (Is 59:4-6)


The devil is compared to a spider. The works of the evil men are compared to spider’s webs. To better understand the works of the devil, read some information about the spider and its web.


Spiders are insects that have eight legs and fangs that inject venom killing their prey.  The spider’s web is a snare to catch other insects. Each web is a work of art. The silky thread that makes the web is very strong. The spider silk is up to five times as strong as the same weight of steel. The silk itself has an ability to soften or stiffen to withstand different types of loads – unlike any other natural or man-made fiber. It is very durable. Removing up to 10 per cent of the threads from various areas made the web not weaker but actually up to 10 per cent stronger. Its complex structure means that when a single strand of a web breaks, the overall strength of the web increases rather than weakens.  To spin a web the spider has to work a lot. The spider produces a fluid substance made of proteins. He loses weight when he builds its web. But once the web is ready, he can rest for the ‘food’ will come to him. The spider chooses wisely where to place its web. It avoids areas where the winds are too strong and where there is too much traffic. The spider prefers quiet dark places. The lonely insects are attracted by the mystery of the web and ignorantly fly into it. The spider produces two types of silky threads. Most of the web is made of sticky material which is able to capture any flying insect. The more the victim tries to free itself, the more it is wrapped in the web. The spider produces another type of silky thread which is stiff and non-sticky. These threads are all connected with the center and make the high ways for the spider to freely move up and down the net. Occasionally, the spider makes mistakes and it is captured in the sticky side of the web he has done to capture others.


We can spiritualize this information. The devil has a plan to ‘kill, steal and destroy’. The work of the devil is based on deception. He places his snares in areas that are dark and lonely. The offer of the devil looks beautiful and innocent but it is deadly. The devil is very skillful at tempting men and women. He uses the same strategies. The devil is not creative. The devil knows how to escape its own troubles but if you follow him, you will be captured by its lies. Once captured by the devil’s snare, you cannot free yourself. The more you struggle, the more the bondage increases. The sinner cannot save himself. He needs help from the outside. The only Savior is the Lord Jesus Christ. When Christ died on the Cross, the veil at the Temple that separated men from God was torn into two. The sinners received forgiveness and direct access to enter the presence of God. The Son of Man was revealed to destroy the works of the devil (1Jn 3:8). Have faith in Christ crucified and resurrected! Jesus is able to destroy any ‘web’ of deception of the devil. If Jesus makes you free, you shall be free indeed!


Let’s pray: “Dear Heavenly Father, have mercy on us. We went astray and got entangled in the deception of the devil. We tried to free ourselves but we failed. We need Your help.  Please help us now! We take authority against any deception of the devil. We destroy any spell placed on us and on our families, in the name of Jesus! We declare that by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, the snare is broken and we are free! Testimonies of deliverance must follow! We shall testify to the power and goodness of God! Glory to God! In Jesus name we pray, amen!”



“Jesus replied, “Did I not tell you that if you believed, you would see the glory of God?” (Jn 11:40)
The prayer meeting was very good. We praised and worshipped our God. We invited the Holy Spirit to ‘come down and move in our midst’. We waited for God to come… And He did! We became ‘drunk’ in the Holy Ghost! There was a prophetic word for those who believe: ‘The war is over! We have now entered a season of peace ‘that passes all understanding’! This peace shall overflow to the city (Warri, Effurun and environs). We shall do things people do when there is peace! The single shall marry! The married couples shall enjoy their marriage! The water shall become sweet wine! The barren shall have children! The needy shall be blessed with supernatural wealth! They shall buy land and build houses! The sick shall be healed! The oppressed shall be delivered! God has opened a door for supernatural blessings! Enter thru that door! Don’t look back! The bondage of routine depression is broken! The evil spirit of religion is defeated! The Holy Spirit has raised a standard against the evil flood directed against us! The devil has been exposed and disgraced in our midst!
Some say: you people are useless people, a group of nobodies. God has no time for you… Devil, you are a liar! Everybody shall see what God will do with foolish people like us who believe in Him!
Rejoice, and I say again, rejoice! Your future is better than your past! Have faith and start rejoicing! Things have changed! The tables have been overturned! The weak is strong because God’s grace is sufficient! The fire of God is burning the chaff or doubt! Jesus said: ‘If you believe you shall see My glory! We answer in one accord: ‘Lord we believe! We stand in Your glory! Thank You Lord Jesus! Glory! Glory! Glory!’


“Look up into the heavens. Who created all the stars? He brings them out like an army, one after another, calling each by its name. Because of His great power and incomparable strength, not a single one is missing” (Is 40:26)

When Abraham was crying to have a child God commanded him to look up to the sky in the night. He saw millions of stars. They were so many that he could not count them all. The stars were all beautiful, each shining brightly, each defeating its surrounding darkness. God created the stars. They are like an army of generals defeating the enemies. Stars must shine! God knows each one by name. God keeps all the stars. By His great power God takes care of them. Not a single star is missing from the sky this night. Did you know that?

In the same way, child of God, trust your God that all your dreams are safe and secure in His hands. Not one of your dreams is lost.These are not some scattered useless nameless abandoned dreams. They are God’s gift to you. God knows each one of them. God calls each of your dreams by name. There is a naming ceremony for each of your answered prayers. The answers to your prayers will bring glory to God like the stars shine in the night. Fear not! You shall not be disappointed! The stars are not falling from the sky! Your dreams will not fall down and fade into nothing! even now and forever, hope is holding you. Your prayers shall end in praise! Not one of your testimonies is missing! From faith to sight, one by one, your testimonies, like the stars, they shall report to their Almighty Creator. The time to rejoice is now! Like we say in Nigeria: ‘All correct Sir!’



“In many separate revelations [each of which set forth a portion of the Truth] and in different ways God spoke of old to [our] forefathers in and by the prophets. [But] in the last of these days He has spoken to us in [the person of a] Son, Whom He appointed Heir and lawful Owner of all things, also by and through Whom He created the worlds and the reaches of space and the ages of time [He made, produced, built, operated, and arranged them in order]. He (Jesus Christ) is the sole expression of the glory of God [the Light-being, the out-raying or radiance of the divine], and He is the perfect imprint and very image of [God’s] nature, upholding and maintaining and guiding and propelling the universe by His mighty word of power. When He had by offering Himself accomplished our cleansing of sins and riddance of guilt, He sat down at the right hand of the divine Majesty on high” (Heb 1:1-3, AMP)

These are the practical revelations I gleaned this morning from the Word of God:
God the Father speaks. Christ also speaks. God, the Holy Spirit speaks often. God uses different means to speak to me. I pray that my ears and my heart will hear and (instantly, totally and joyfully) obey God’s Word and His voice. God starts to speak thru the prophets and ends speaking thru His Beloved Son, Jesus Christ. I should study the whole Bible, the Old and the New Testaments. Like the miracle of water becoming wine provided by Jesus at the wedding in Cana, God keeps the best gifts and most wonderful promises for the last. I should not panic that my waiting time is too long. There is nothing like ‘too late’ for God. I should patiently wait for God to upgrade my life as His Word comes to me in a stronger and more direct way.

The Lord Jesus Christ is my personal Savior and Master. God created all things thru Him and for Him. Jesus was appointed by the Father to be the Heir of all things in the universe. As a child of God, I am co-heir with Christ. In Him I have all authority and posses all things. In Him I can never be a slave or a beggar. I reject all feelings of inferiority, failure and poverty. ‘The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want’. ‘I am fearfully and wonderfully made’ by God! No contrary voice can argue about my identity in Christ!

The Bible is the Word of God. It is God’s Word of POWER. The more I read it and believe it, the stronger my spirit becomes. Like a pregnancy, the Word of God grows in me. It is also called ‘Christ in me the Hope of Glory’. Even in my weakness, thru Faith in the Word of God, I am able to create, sustain and enjoy a supernatural life style where miracles are my daily bread. I shall study the Word of God more than ever before. I watch as my faith increases every day. Mountains of problems crumble before my eyes and are cast into the sea. The valleys of hidden anxieties are filled with the gold of the assurance of my salvation. Therefore, my feet are stable on the flat ground of victory, for easy walking in the Spirit. My progress is sure and fast.

I feel good this morning. Join me in celebrating Christ! I feel propelled by God’s powerful Word! I am moving forward in my faith! The gates of hell cannot prevail! My future is surely better than my past. He has made me glad… This is the day The Lord has made. I shall rejoice and be glad in it! Glory to God!

“Since we have such a huge crowd of men of faith watching us from the grandstands, let us strip off anything that slows us down or holds us back, and especially those sins that wrap themselves so tightly around our feet and trip us up; and let us run with patience the particular race that God has set before us. Keep your eyes on Jesus, our leader and instructor. He was willing to die a shameful death on the cross because of the joy He knew would be His afterwards; and now He sits in the place of honor by the throne of God” (Heb 12:1, 2)

We are right now in a country where the Christian population is just 9% and it is made of only foreign workers. We attended the mid week service in one of the evangelistic churches. We were inspired by the preacher who said:

“Life is hard. Giving up your faith in God is not an option. When you walk with God you are not free from problems. But God is with you right in the middle of it all. Nothing is new to God. He knows the future. Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Job, Joshua, Daniel, the woman with the issue of blood, apostle Paul and many other heroes of faith, these all ran the race to the end. You must do the same!

You are not alone. God is stretching His hand towards you. Continue to pray. God is a God who answers prayer. When He keeps silent, God works on your behalf. God is with you wherever you go. The Bible is your ‘Bank account’. When you are in need, open the Bible and you shall surely find the answer between its pages. With men things are impossible. With with God all things are possible.

We may feel alone, but we aren’t. We are surrounded by an army of witnesses. They have run the race of faith and finished well. It is now our turn. Struggles may come. Do not hate them. Do not fight them. Do not reject them. Embrace them. God uses struggles to bring you closer to Him and to change you to be like Jesus. Do not say: I am in a terrible situation. Say: I am in the middle of a miracle! God will do awesome things in 2017 if you believe! Revival shall come! Jesus is Lord! Be strong in The Lord and in the power of His might! It is well with you! In Jesus name, amen!



“So I recommend the enjoyment [of life]. People have nothing better to do under the sun than to eat, drink, and enjoy themselves. This joy will stay with them while they work hard during their brief lives which God has given them under the sun” (Ecc 8:15)

Most people assume that if they have some extra money, they will enjoy life automatically. This is a lie. Money cannot buy happiness. The enjoyment of life does not come easily. It is the gift of God. God commands His children to enjoy their life on earth as they are waiting for heaven to become a reality. You work and you enjoy. You talk and you pray. You make money and you spend money. All things must be balanced to become useful and beautiful. Guilt, shame and anxiety must die so that you can experience the freedom of pure enjoyment. Very few people are able to live well. By the grace of God I am one of them. I have eternal life in my soul. I enjoy my life here on earth. The Almighty God is my Heavenly Father, the provider of all good things which come free of sorrow. I wish you feel what I feel… As a medical doctor, as a pastor and friend, I recommend that you should work hard and enjoy your life! In Jesus name, amen!


“Obey your spiritual leaders and submit to them [continually recognizing their authority over you], for they are constantly keeping watch over your souls and guarding your spiritual welfare, as men who will have to render an account [of their trust]. [Do your part to] let them do this with gladness and not with sighing and groaning, for that would not be profitable to you either” (Heb 13:17; AMP)

The Body of Christ is One! It is a spiritual Body made of many living parts but all united by the Holy Spirit, in a single purpose to the glory of God. ‘Attending a church’ is much more than ‘attending a church’. The Holy Spirit has to lead you to a particular local assembly. Pray for direction. Choosing a church for your family is a very serious matter, even more serious than choosing a school for your children. It is not enough to like the music or the pastor. You become a part of a spiritual family. There are duties and responsibilities. There are consequences too. You need to submit to God and to His delegated authority in that church. God monitors your relationship with your pastor who is your spiritual covering. Submission brings blessings to you and your pastor. Rebellion brings trouble to everybody.

(We are visiting a country where church services are held on Fridays. This is Sunday morning. It is a regular day of work here. I miss church back home…)

This morning pray for wisdom. If you have peace in the church you attend, if you and your pastor are a blessing to one another, to the glory of God, then give thanks to God! As a pastor, I speak blessings on you! In Jesus name, amen!


We arrived in Lagos yesterday. Pastor Tony, his wife and daughter, my husband and I we entered a mini bus from the airport to the hotel. Suddenly we saw a police van following us and commanding us to stop. Three police men came towards our car and shouted that our driver (a young man of about 30) crossed on red. The driver was explaining that he did it on yellow. There was a heated argument between the driver and the police. Pastor Tony wanted to say something but my husband said we should all keep quiet for now. Then the police said that we should follow their van to the police station. We quietly agreed. We started driving quietly praying in the Spirit. After about ten minutes the police van suddenly stopped along the road and one of them came down to talk again with our driver. Then my husband called him to his side and said:

‘Officer, you insist that our young driver made a mistake and you want to punish all of us for that. May God not allow you to taste from this cup you offer us today! May God not allow you to fall into the hands of your seniors who will monitor and punish you for every mistake you make! Do you know the story in the Bible, about the woman who was caught in adultery? The self righteous men wanted to stone her to death. But when Jesus confronted them, they dropped their stones and went away sobered. You insist that our driver broke the traffic law. That is ok. But you broke a higher law by taking all of us to police station. You broke a spiritual law. You looked inside the car and saw all of us. Look at me well. I am not a young man. You want to arrest your father. You judge who broke a higher law. It is only those who show mercy that shall receive mercy. Judge yourself…’

My husband was talking slowly, in a quiet voice. The anointing of a true father was clearly upon him. The police man listened to the words and could not move. I could feel the presence of the Holy Spirit all around us. Ministry was going on. Police men arrested the children of God. But now, The Holy Spirit arrested a man who I believe God was calling to salvation. This was ‘church’ going on along a dusty road of Lagos… Then the police man said that his ‘Oga’ is in the van. He went to talk to him and came back. The Oga himself came and said that we are free to go. He also offered that they can follow us back to the airport as an escort. We declined saying that we are on our way to the hotel. We thanked them and spoke blessings on them. See how things have changed. There was no quarrel and no bribe. Only the power of the Word of God! Great lesson for all!

May God show you mercy! May God intervene in all your crises! May God overrule the decision of your enemies! May Give you divine wisdom to deal with unexpected situations in life! May God bless the words of your mouth! May God change your sorrow into joy! In Jesus name, amen!

















“God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground” (Gen 1:28)


The women’ fellowship was very good. We are in a season of fasting, prayer and waiting on God. We expect great things to happen, miracles, wonderful breakthroughs in all areas of our lives. According to the scripture above, God has blessed us. The blessings of God rest upon us, our husbands, marriages, children, grandchildren, the work of our hands and our testimonies. The blessings of God come full of joy and without sorrow. We reject every contrary lying voice of curses in the name of Jesus!


God speaks to us. We trust God that before now and the end of the first week in February, God the Holy Spirit shall call your name and speak a word of life into you that will propel you into a higher level, spiritually and naturally. God’s word shall push you into His plan for you. God has approved your holy promotion. The blessing of God surrounds you like a wall round about. The devil has no space to enter.


God commands us to be fruitful and to increase in number. To be fruitful it means to have children, naturally and spiritually. Like an orange tree produces oranges, so your life shall produce fruits that will resemble you. But to be fruitful it is not enough. You fruits shall increase in number by the power of God. This is the command of God. For example a woman who has ten children is called fruitful. But if all her children die premature death, she loses that ‘title’ of fruitfulness. The true blessing of fruitfulness from God is designed to increase the number of the fruits by the power God has deposited in them.


This is my confession: my children shall not die but live and declare the works of the Lord! My children shall be fruitful themselves and produce grandchildren. In the same way, I cannot work until I am old for every naira in my account (naira is the Nigerian currency).  My naira shall start producing ‘grand-naira’. My business shall produce ‘grand-business’. My profit shall produce its own profit, in the name of Jesus!


In the name of Jesus I declare that you shall work less and produce more. Your blessings shall not reduce but increase to the glory of God. You shall rule over the fish, birds and things that ‘move on the ground’. These are the microbes, viruses and parasites living in the dust. You have the authority of heaven to restrict their movement into your body, into your children’s bodies.   No sickness should invade you or your family without your ‘permission’. At the name of Jesus every knee shall bow. I command all sicknesses to bow and go away! In Jesus name, amen! Poverty bow and run away! In Jesus name, amen!


We ended the meeting giving thanks to God! We vowed to give God alone all the glory! In Jesus name, amen! We sang: “Doh, Doh, Doh, Oghene Doh…” (Thank You Lord!)



“Because the Lord had closed Hannah’s womb, her rival kept provoking her in order to irritate her. This went on year after year. Whenever Hannah went up to the house of the Lord, her rival provoked her till she wept and would not eat” (1Sam 1:6, 7)


“There are those who rebel against the light,

who do not know its ways

or stay in its paths…

They prey on the barren and childless woman,

and to the widow they show no kindness.

But God drags away the mighty by his power;

though they become established, they have no assurance of life” (Job 24:13, 21, 22)


As I said yesterday, a number of Christian women asked me to pray for them, that they marry and have children. Some are young and some are not so young. I feel compassion for them because I am a mother and a grandmother. For their sake I decided to study again the scriptures that promise natural and spiritual fruitfulness. I recommend that you fast and pray. Meditate upon the revelation of the Word of God. It is the will of God for you to marry and have children. But the devil hates that. I join my faith with yours. I believe that God will answer your prayers! I believe that your dream will come true! In Christ, the victory and the testimony is sure!


As you pray to have a baby, you may be in Hannah’s position. She was a woman of God, married, but she had no children. In Hebrew, her name means grace, favor, mercy and humility (she bows down and helps others, even those who are inferior to her). It also means prayer and supplications. Her husband, Elkanah loves her but possibly under pressure from his family he marries a second wife called Penninah with whom he has children. Penninah is a wicked woman. She is jealous on the love their husband has for Hannah. She takes advantage of the fact that Hannah is barren because ‘the Lord has closed her womb’. The wicked woman takes pleasure in continuously provoking and irritating Hannah. The effect of these actions is that Hannah weeps and cannot eat. She loses weight and she looks depressed. Even in the church she is sad. In Hebrew, the verbs ‘to provoke and to irritate’ describe a female enemy who pushes another woman to the wall causing anger and exasperation. It means to greatly oppress another, to cause violent anxiety as the wicked woman cages her helpless victim. God closed Hannah’s womb so that she can come to God for the answer to the problem! She became desperate to pray not just for an ordinary child (like her mate’s) but for a special extraordinary child, a boy in particular. Once she totally surrendered to God’s plan and purpose for her ‘womb’ Samuel, the great man of God was conceived. Later more children came.


In the Book of Job 24 you see that there are wicked people who rebel against the light of God. They hate the truth. They are murderers and thieves. They attack or seduce the weak, the (emotionally) needy, the helpless, the lonely, the widows, the barren and the childless women. For long time it seems that they are successful in their evil deeds. It looks like God is ‘sleeping’. But you should know that God sees and knows everything. Continue to pray!  Have faith in God! This is the truth: God will judge them at last. Don’t be sorry for the devil! God loves you! Jesus Christ is the same, yesterday, today and forever!


Let’s pray: “Dear Heavenly Father, I come to You by the Blood of the Lamb. I thank You for hearing my prayers and supplications. I know that all power belongs to you. You can open any door. You can open any womb. I pray that You grant me the gift of motherhood. Like Hannah, I vow to give You back the children You give to me. I shall train them in Your ways the best way I can. I take authority in the name of Jesus and I reject every evil spirit of wickedness of the order of Penninah! You evil spirit of darkness, of rebellion, of evil provocation, inferiority complex, jealousy, worldly ambition, seduction, ‘Mammy Water’, Jezebel, Ogbanje, hot temper and depression… I command you all to go away from me in the name of Jesus! Every evil covenant done by wicked people, in the shrine, in the coven, in the trees, in the sea or under the earth, so that I will not marry, or I should divorce, or not enjoy my marriage, or be barren, or miscarry… I destroy them all in the name of Jesus! I decree confusion in the camp of my enemies! You my enemies come against me one way but you shall split and run away in seven ways! I plead the Blood of Jesus over my life, my marriage, my children and my destiny! Holy Spirit please come and fill me afresh! I vow to give God alone all the glory for the breakthrough this day! I declare that it is well! It is done! Let peace reign! In Jesus name, amen!”



“The Israelites were exceedingly fruitful; they multiplied greatly, increased in numbers and became so numerous that the land was filled with them” (Ex 1:7)


As I said yesterday, a number of Christian women asked me to pray for them, that they marry and have children. Some are young and some are not so young. I feel compassion for them because I am a mother and a grandmother. For their sake I decided to study again the scriptures that promise natural and spiritual fruitfulness. I recommend that you fast and pray. Meditate upon the revelation of the Word of God. It is the will of God for you to marry and have children. But the devil hates that. I join my faith with yours. I believe that God will answer your prayers! I believe that your dream will come true! In Christ, the victory and the testimony is sure!


In Genesis 1:28 God blesses the first couple on earth and He commands them to be fruitful and increase in number. Satan deceived them to rebel against God. But even after the fall of man, God’s command of fruitfulness was obeyed. Men increased in number on the earth. In the Book of Exodus 1, we see that this blessed commanded fruitfulness belongs especially to the people of God. They multiplied so much that Pharaoh and the Egyptians became afraid of them and made plans to reduce their number. Their evil plan was three fold.

*The first thing they did was to increase the burden of labor upon God’s people.

“So they put slave masters over them to oppress them with forced labor… But the more they were oppressed, the more they multiplied and spread; so the Egyptians came to dread the Israelites and worked them ruthlessly. They made their lives bitter with harsh labor in brick and mortar and with all kinds of work in the fields; in all their harsh labor the Egyptians worked them ruthlessly” (Ex 1:11-14)


*The second thing the Egyptians did was to intimidate and bribe the midwives to be negligent in their work so that the male new born babies will die. The midwives wisely refused to obey the wicked decree.  Because of that, Jehovah, the God of Israel, blessed them with families of their own.

*Finally, when Pharaoh discovered that both these methods failed to reduce the numbers of God’s people, he gave a decree that all new born baby boys should be thrown into River Nile. In Exodus 2 we see how Jochebed, the mother of Moses, by faith, she saves her son’s life thru the same river of death. Moses grew up in Pharaoh’s palace but later, he becomes the deliverer of Israel and leads them out of the land of bondage. This is a wonderful story!


Spiritually speaking, Egypt stands for the world. The Pharaoh ‘who did not know Joseph’ represents the devil who is the god of this world. The plan of the devil is to stop the natural and spiritual fruitfulness of God’s children. In other words, the devil does not want you to have children. The devil will attack with bareness and confusion. “Do not have fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather even expose them” (Eph 5:11). Pray for discernment when you make friends and pray for God’s light! Darkness is a symbol of evil. The children of darkness are unfruitful and they want you to be unfruitful too, so that you can be ‘friends’. God forbid! You are to discern their wickedness and confront them with the Word of God. Dwell in the light of God! Be filled with the Holy Spirit!


Now this is a very important question: how do you know that you are getting closer to your exodus, to your breakthrough? What are the signs that you will soon marry. Be pregnant and have children?  According to the Book of Exodus 1 things will become rougher become they become better!!! The first thing you will experience is that your work in your office is more difficult. Your business will be under attack. Also, the medical staff will not be able to help you. They may proclaim that you are barren and that there is no solution for your infertility. As you try to come to the light, at the end of the tunnel, you will be attacked by evil powers of darkness, by demons of fear, doubt, depression and total discouragement. These attacks are unpleasant but they are not the end of your story! I am saying this because I know that God will fight on your behalf and rescue you from all these troubles. Light always kills the darkness! If the devil likes it or not, you shall marry and have children!!! In Jesus name!


Children of God be encouraged today! As Pharaoh could not stop God’s blessings upon Israel the devil cannot stop God’s blessings on you! Dear sisters, by faith in God and in His Word, I decree that you shall marry, be happy and have as many children as you desire (surely more than one!). Your life, your marriage, your womb, your future, your finances, your destiny is not with the devil but in God’s hands. The hands of Jesus pierced by the nails of judgment are the very hands holding you close and lovingly blessing you even right now! Your marriage is decreed and approved by God! You shall be a happy mother of children! Have faith in God! Your children shall be many and brilliant like the stars in the sky! Now I am saying this: by faith in God, buy your wedding shoes and some baby shoes (send me some pictures in my inbox, please…). You shall use them soon! I am very happy as I write these words, because I believe that they are true! To God be all the glory! In Jesus name, amen!





“God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.” (Gen 1:28)


A number of Christian women asked me to pray for them, that they marry and have children. Some are young and some are not so young. I feel for them because I am a mother and a grandmother. For their sake I decided to study again the scriptures that promise natural and spiritual fruitfulness. I recommend that you fast and pray. Meditate upon the revelation of the Word of God. It is clear that God wants us to marry and have children. The devil hates that. I believe that God will answer your prayers! I believe that your dream will come true! In Christ, the victory and the testimony is sure!


God is the Creator of all things, visible and invisible. His name is Jehovah Elohim. God created the earth and all the living things on it. The word ‘create’ means to produce something out of nothing; to bring something into existence; to mentally conceive, design and execute something for the glory of God. Man recycles but only God creates!


After creating all other things in the nature, lastly, God created the human race. He created Adam from the soil and gave him His own Spirit. Then the man became a living being. Out of his rib God created a woman. The first couple was called Adam and Eve. Man-kind was created ‘in the image of God’. The word ‘image’ means a resemblance like a shadow. It means that each time I see a man, a woman or a child I see the shadow of God, their Creator. God blessed the first couple. At the beginning He commanded them to do two things: to be fruitful and to rule over the nature. In other words, man was to have many strong children so that God’s ‘shadow’ (or glory) will fill the whole earth.


We and our many strong children are supposed to subdue the earth and rule over all the rest created things, big (like the whale) and small (like the viruses). God has given us and our children the authority to rule the earth. The more children we have, the greater the authority to rule. This revelation taken by faith applies to natural children and spiritual children in Christ Jesus. To subdue it means to subjugate, to positively conquer the enemy and bring him into bondage. To rule it means to have dominion, to overtake and prevail against the enemy. Both words imply that there is a spiritual war. After the fall of man, God has decreed that the woman and her children shall fight against the devil and his children (Gen 3:15). Jesus Christ, the Son of God born of a woman has won total victory against the devil and his demons.


From these scriptures we see that the devil hates children, in particular, God’s children. He hates to see the image, the glory-shadow of God spreading on the earth. The devil hates to see that God’s babies are conceived and born to defeat him and his followers. To conceive an ordinary child is easy (Ask Hagar and she will tell you…). But to conceive a man or a woman of God is not easy (Ask Sarah and she will tell you…). There must be warfare prayer that ends in praise. You need to fast and pray focusing on God’s Word! But the God of Genesis is stronger than all opposition. The devil will deceive you saying that you do not have enough money to take care of your children. That is a lie! For God who provides the children will also provide the resources to take care of them. The devil will deceive you that you are too old to marry and become a mother. That is a lie! Sarah was ninety when she became a mother!


In Christ I declare:

I am a child of God! I am a woman of God! I am a godly wife and a godly mother of children! By the grace of God I am a fruitful vine! My husband and I shall have many children, natural and spiritual. Our children shall surround our table with testimonies, blessings and gifts. Our wonderful beautiful children are spiritual, straight and strong arrows to defeat the enemies of God! Our children are men and women of God. They shall serve God. They shall worship God in Spirit and in truth! To the glory of God and for the increase of His Kingdom! “Jesus said, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” (Mt 19:14). By faith, I believe that in Christ, my children will come to me!  In Jesus name, amen!


Let’s Pray:

“Dear Heavenly Father, we come to You by the Blood of Jesus. We thank You for the revelation that it is Your will for us to have many naturally and spiritually strong children. We thank You for the hope we have in Christ. We pray that You grant us the desire of our hearts. We want to marry and have godly children. We promise that we shall teach the children to know You and to love You. By faith, we dedicate our unborn children to You. We are like ‘Abraham who believed in the God who brings the dead back to life and who creates new things out of nothing’ (Rom 4:17). Abraham was not too old and Sarah was not too old to have children. By faith, our bodies are not too old, sick or weak to have children. We believe in miracles because we believe in You. We command every evil spirit that blocks the conception and delivery of our children, to go away in the name of Jesus! We destroy every covenant we have made, ignorantly or not, with the demons of doubt, barrenness and fear of poverty. Holy Spirit please seal and approve this request! Fill our bodies, souls and spirits! Prepare us to be mothers! We vow to give You alone all the glory! In Jesus name we pray, amen!”

Our prayer meeting was very good. We laid the foundation for this year. Of course, no foundation can any man lay except that which has been laid: Jesus Christ crucified and resurrected; Savior and Lord! But we needed to come back to the altar, entering this year with a fresh, purer and larger vision. There was a prophetic word calling men and women to total unconditional surrender to the Lord. We presented our bodies as living sacrifices for the pleasure of the Lord. The worship must continue…The Holy Spirit was calling believers to work for God, to do ministry. We started praying in the Spirit… Initially there was some resistance in the room. The religious spirits were fighting back refusing to let go of their slaves. But the anointing was breaking the yokes! Some people were hiding in the shadows, excusing themselves, saying in their hearts that a little religion is good enough for heaven’ approval. They became skillful in the art of ‘playing church’. Because of that, their hearts became dry, hard and cold. But the Holy Spirit was calling and calling, and will not let go… (I love the patience and persistence of God). We could not proceed further with the service until this matter of repentance and surrender was done. The Holy Wind was blowing spreading the fragrance of Christ in the room. The stony hearts became soft and none could stop the melting. Christ arrested the prodigals. Coming home was the only way for many tonight. The lost got found. The blind could finally ‘see the King in His beauty’. We bowed in adoration proclaiming that Jesus Christ is Lord! Finally, we worshipped God with thanksgiving for He alone is worthy! Glory to God!

“You gently call me into Your presence guiding me by your Holy Spirit
Teach me dear Lord to live all of my life through Your eyes
I’m captured by your Holy calling
Set me apart, I know You’re drawing me to Yourself
Lead me Lord I pray…

Take me, mold me, use me, fill me
I give my life to the Potter’s hand
Call me, guide me, lead me, walk beside me
I give my life to the Potter’s hand”
(By Darlene Zschech)


“My heart rejoices in the Lord; in the Lord my horn is lifted high.
My mouth boasts over my enemies for I delight in Your deliverance…“There is no one holy like the Lord; there is no one besides You; there is no Rock like our God… “The Lord sends poverty and wealth; He humbles and He exalts. He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the needy from the ash heap; He seats them with princes and has them inherit a throne of honor” (1Sam 2:1-8)
The women’ fellowship was very good. We had a record number of women attending. We are fasting and praying this month. I could feel the expectation and faith ‘in the air’. We praised God with songs and dance. Some sisters testified to the goodness and faithfulness of God. Sister H said that she was healed from serious back pain and she is now debt free. Sister Y testified that God helped her mother who fell on top of hot rice in her kitchen. She burnt her back but it could have been worse. Her mother in law miraculously escaped a stray bullet. Sister A fell and twisted her foot during Jesus Mega Party. She could not work but she continued to do her ministry at the media stand. She said that she will never take walking for granted. Sister E’s son was very sick but God healed him. Sister B testified that since the prophetic word of peace came last month, she has experience the peace of God that passes all understanding. We all praised God for His faithfulness towards His children!
Then the Word came: “God promotes the humble and God demotes the proud”. Proud Queen Vashti had to vacate the throne and Esther, a humble child of God, replaced her. The wicked, rich and powerful Haman ’fell from grace’ and was replaced by the humble and faithful Mordecai. Hannah wept and asked God for a baby boy. She vowed that she will give her son back to God. She got pregnant and had Samuel. She brought the child to the altar according to her vow. Then God gave her more children. Samuel became a prophet and a great man of God. This was her victory against her mate Peninah who had many children and who in the past oppressed her with words. God promoted Samuel who replaced the corrupted priesthood, represented by the wicked sons of Eli.
All power belongs to God. He is able to change all situations. Like Hannah, your prayer shall become praise. Your weeping shall be replaced with tears of joy. Do not look at your immediate circumstances. Look up ‘unto the hills’ of grace from where your help comes. There is a change in the spiritual atmosphere. People who are known as great, rich and secure, shall fall down, humbled by the living God. But the humble faithful children of God, who are waiting on God for many years, shall suddenly be promoted and none can stop it. God shall bless the work of your hands: money shall meet money! There shall be no interruptions of poverty or lack in the holy chain of wealth granted by Jehovah Jireh. Health shall meet health! There shall be no seasons of sicknesses interrupting the divine health, the gift of Jehovah Rapha. God will perfect the good work He has started in you and in your family! God is the God of miracles. All things are possible for God! We believe! We refuse to doubt! We prayed with passion, faith and courage. We worshiped God in Spirit and in Truth! God will surely answer us. The testimonies shall increase and multiply! In Jesus name, amen!
(This is a picture of a happy, grateful to God African mother and her child. I imagine that Hannah and Samuel could have looked like this)


This is a word for a Christian sister who is praying for marriage: Fast and pray this month of January! Read the book of Esther. Identify with Queen Esther! The first wife, Queen Vashti had to leave the marriage, the throne and the palace before Esther could become the new wife and Queen. You may marry a man who is now divorced and who has suffered in his first marriage. Esther was by far more spiritual than King Xerxes. Your husband may be less spiritual than you but he is surely a child of God. He may not be a pastor but a business man. Remember the Word of God: The wife is the spiritual helper of the husband (Gen 2:18). Your future husband needs you to fulfill his destiny. Without you he cannot do it. Marriage is more work than pleasure. Pleasure comes, but not immediately. It comes like the harvest, after much planting and caring. You must learn the principle of delayed satisfaction! You invest in your husband the very things you want to enjoy later. You cannot expect to marry a ‘ready-made’ man. Even if his mother, sisters or former wife planted seeds (good or bad) in him, you need a new plantation in your marriage. You shall patiently uproot those old plants and plant new good seeds. What is important is that his heart is a good ‘soil’ heart. He must be a child of God! You cannot marry an unbeliever. But you can marry a ‘baby Christian’. Basically, your husband loves God; is a kind, loving, hardworking and generous man. Have faith that the miracle of a godly God glorifying wedding will happen this year, 2017! You too shall leave the rank of single women and become a married woman to the glory of God! In Jesus name, amen!
