Whenever I want to talk about my prayer walk, I definitely can’t do so without this two experiences I am about to share.
I think after my ‘cockroach experience’ (heard of it?), I sorta forgot that prayer is required for everything. I probably started focusing my prayers on the big stuff and trying to get the small stuffs myself. These two experiences always remind me to learn to pray about anything and everything.
I do owe this two seemingly small yet profound experiences to Mummy Adigun.
I have spoken and written about this before, I think its just apt that I share this during this 30day trip. I’ll save you a number of details.
The Generator Lesson.
This happened sometime in February 2014, Myself and friend, Oyebode Caleb, were trying to put on a generator for her, we tugged at the generator with our masculine strength, but all we got was just a cough from the stubborn generator.
Grandma, as she is fondly called, joined us by the side of the generator and she asked simply,
“What’s wrong with the generator?”
“We are starting it but it’s not coming on” we replied. Then she looked at us and asked us the question that has ever changed my attitude to praying.
“Have you prayed?” She asked very simply and started to walk off.
Caleb and I smiled a look at ourselves with a face that read “Pray? About a generator?” At least that’s what went through my own mind.
I immediately started to pray under my breath as Caleb pulled again and “Greeeeeee!!!”, the generator worked!
Did it stop? NO! Did it work? YES!! Did it respond to our prayer? YES!!!
I learnt a real life lesson that day!
I’ll share the second one tomorrow. Its called ‘Jollof Rice Lesson’.
PRAY about everything… And expect an answer!
The answer may come in different forms, direct or indirect, but you sure can pray about anything.
Mark: 11. 23. For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
Till tomorrow, stay praying and trusting.
