Funke Kuti & Kate Henshaw. When Friends Pray For Friends.

By @funkekut "WOMAN! @k8henshaw When I call you sis. When I call you blood I have a very good reason. It's because you are the most amazing person that has been in my life ever. You are the strongest woman I know. Won't say too much but you have won the battle. The spirits of fire that tried to harm you have lost. You survived and you will continue surviving. They have lost their battle in the Mighty name of Jesus. You are too blessed to be distressed. Your anointing is enormous from the Father almighty cuz your heart is pure and clean. Your blessings have just multiplied a thousand fold. Those tears you have cried in the last couple of days will become tears of thanksgiving and testimonies . I know I said I won't say too much but emmmm I couldn't help myself. Kate! Kate! Kate! You are a winner. Godwin. Only laughter and praise to our almighty remain from today. Enemies Watch this space. I love you my black beauty for life. My Bloooooooood! My sister for life! Nothing do you.


I've read these words again and again. Surely something must have set this off, something that might make steamy gossip fodder in some quarters. Curious? Of course. But I'm more touched by the words of prayer, by the public display of affection and by the fervent reassurances... I don't think there's anything more beautiful than the random prayer of a friend. 

I'm reminded that the Bible urges us to pray for one another. I'm neither a saint nor a pastor, but I know because I'm God's child He listens, He hears, He cares. Therefore he answers.  

Ruthielicious; I pray your dreams comes true, that things come together for you, and that your pains and mistakes of the past remain in the past. 
Anonymous Rider; I pray God makes you whole. I pray He makes your joy complete. I pray He fills you with divine peace. 
Chocolate; I pray nothing takes away from your happiness. And anything that's been stolen be returned in triple folds. 
Erniesha Tibs; you've got the spirit of a fighter. You're a survivor, an extremely strong woman. May God's blessings compensate for all the pains of the past. May your home always have laughter, and even more laughter. 
Diary of Dido; God hasn't even begun to bless you. There's so much within you, so much the world is yet to see, so much love, power and grace. May God bring it all to fruition. 
Clare; You're an extraordinary person, so much so that I'm reluctant to pray; you seem to have it all together. Still, tonight I pray that God honour the desires of your heart. 
Enjay; I pray that God keeps your family warm and comfy under his canopy. I pray He enlarges your territory. 
Tiwa; your heart is filled with so much love. May love and everything that comes with it, always find you. 
TTB Adict; May blessings, love, happiness and glory be addicted to you, today and always. 
Kabuoy & Sunshine; May your supplications take pride of place in God's eyes. Even in your youth, May He fill you with divine wisdom and guidance. 
Steele; Your days of laughter and dancing are here. You WILL testify. Nobody will ever gloat over you. 
Easah; May God bless the works of your hands, and bless them richly. May everything you touch yield fruit in abundance. 
Miss Pynk; OAD you're simply intriguing, an inspiration to many. God sees the depths of your hearts and knows it's desires. May His words always be 'Yea' and 'Amen' in your life. 
Uyi; May God guide you on life's journey. May you find fulfillment, unconditional love and blissful companionship. 
Ziggylucious; as one chapter closes and another opens, may this new one be colorful, bright and filled with true happiness. And, may love find you. 
Ng PH; may your talents and business savvy take you beyond heights you ever imagined. 
Memphis; may every new day bring you closer to your dreams. May you find that piece that completes the puzzle; and you, although you're already complete. 
TNHW; may your home and all that concerns you be kept safe in God's loving arms. 
Kene Francis; the road that stretches before you may sometimes seem blurry. The road is never smooth, but as you thread may your steps be guided, may your path be lit, may your load be light. 
Sasha boné; one day it will all make sense. May even the hard grounds on which your prayers seemingly fell, spring up green trees heavy with fruit. What's ahead of you is much better than what you imagined was the best. 
Subomi; may peace and happiness flood your life and your home. May everything that brings you pain be kept at bay. 
Dr N; strength and gentleness are traits not many possess, yet you do. Strength, intuition, grace, virtue and substance are words I ascribe to you. Remain blessed beautiful woman.  
Blink & cccc; God has graced you richly with inward and outward beauty. I pray that He makes your joy whole and that everything works out for your good. I pray that in His time men worthy of your love find you. 
Ejoec; in all that you do may you find fulfillment. In your career, may you continue to mount higher rungs on the ladder. 
Bloggitup; may God make your life so beautiful, overwhelmingly beautiful. May this beauty be so plentiful that it spreads beyond you to your loved ones. 
Chinny T; the way you settle down to leave a comment on each post, may God tick each and every of your requests; Done, Done and Done. 
MAYBEL; my darling lady, God's plans for you are certain. Though weeping may endure for a night, joy comes in the morning. May your morning come soon. 
J; I pray your home, your marriage, your health and all that you hold dear, always always bring joy and peace to you. 
Lifetitudes; Dear MFA laughter, the kind that starts at the pit of your belly and erupts from your mouth, may it never elude you. May all that you are, all that you have, all that you do, and all that you hope for meet with God's divine favour. 
Ogenna Chimezie Nwodo; my dear Barrister at law, may it please The Lord to see you flourish, to sharpen your wits and intellect and bless you all round. 
Hope N; the past may have had its troubles but your best is ahead of you. May God provide all your needs and place great helpers in your path. 
Tolulope Oyetunde; there's no sound as beautiful as the laughter of a child. As your son's laugh fills you with immense happiness, may this happiness and all else that cause you to be happy be kept and protected by God. 
Wale; I carry you in my prayers everyday. May God perfect all that concerns you, fill your life with sun shine, give you peace of mind in a way only He can. 

I pray for us all, Thelma GH, Uju Beibe, Eazee EPretty JulesAda-Ugo, Dika, Buby, Oyinlola SobowaleWinner, Lilia, Ruby Diamond, Chioma Ukeje, SteffiJoy Oke, Sweet PeachesMiss NdiQuirky Moi, Sharon Achieng, Memebaby, Phransea, Tokoni, Lohla WindfallQueen, Nana-Ama, Mallama, Michie Girl, Anonymouses, silent readers, everyone else (because it's 3am  and I cannot remember all our names when sleep has started to call mine), regardless of religion, and myself; may our prayers be from our mouths to God's ears. Testimonies, unbelievable testimonies abound!

    May God grant you all of your heart's desires Thelma and a love so unconditional- you begin to appreciate the years it took to find you.
    There is a genuine warmth and sincerity that wafts from you- it cannot be feigned- it is that quality that makes people sure they can tell you anything, share everything with you, want to fight for you, ready to clobber anyone who hurts you- you're just so lovable.
    May your gifts make you rich and add no sorrow in your life.
    I pray for God's exceeding grace in your life, peace and wisdom.


    God Bless You Sis.

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…


Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

One More Post...


He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and
See how you are serious dey read this story....!


A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…


I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!

Question of The Day.

TTB readers doesn't this tweet below remind you of something?
That mail that someone sent me a few weeks back. 
But why on earth should a man sleep with his son's fiancé? But what am I saying, some men even sleep with their daughters...

Oh well, I'm throwing the question to you. What has happened in your life that you never saw coming, you never hesperred it, you never imagined could happen, you never imagined could happen to you? 
It could be good, it could be bad, it could be ugly. Do tell!
And it can be more than one. Let me tell you a few. 
-owning a blog -week long dry fast at Prayer City (I never hesperred it).  -staying in an (emotionally) abusive relationship.
The others require anonymity. LOL. Now over to you.
