Days of Gratitude and Prayer


If you are my friend on Facebook, you probably have seen that I have been posting something I call “days of gratitude and prayer” towards the release of my new book, “Donut.” I was tempted to create a spiced-up concept and tag it DOGAP or something, create an elaborate daily blog post and call you to pray along everyday, but I have had my hands full for a while plus clinical postings and examinations in front of me.

But, I felt it good to share the three posts I have put up on Facebook here and to formally request that you pray along with me. I hope to update this blog as new prompts arise in my heart.

On November 6, 2014, I wrote:

Join me to appreciate God and pray towards the release of “Donut” in this exercise called “Days of gratitude and prayer.” Spare ten to fifteen minutes of today to intercede for this project:

Appreciate God for the fact that He chooses to be involved in the daily affairs of man, revealing to them what life really is. And, through this book, He has given a word to young people at this time – a word that, if heeded, will transform their lives.Psalm 68:11

Pray that He prepares the heart of young people as we prepare to release the book to them. A prepared heart to receive the message, we seek. Matthew 7:24-26

On November 9, 2014, I wrote:

I Appreciate God for the great people He has brought my way, to help me through this publishing process. Editors, Encouragers, Critique partners and Beta readers. There’s a list in heaven, and your name is there!

Rick Joyner said if we try to get God to come to a meeting than we try to get people to come, we would have more people than we can handle… So, pray that God who has been actively involved in this process would come to our meetings (the day of the launch and many campaigns) to meet with the young people that would be present.

There’s nothing as sweet as eating your donut (we will find out soon, how to do that)! Have a great sunday!

Today, I wrote:

Appreciate God for the gift of inspiration. We all have minds, and mouths and preferences of what we would rather write as authors. But I have learnt that it is best to obey God. Donut is a product of a struggle between “ought to” and “want to.” The former won. And I’m glad I lost.

Pray for continual grace to obey. Writing the book is just the first step in the process… That all those involved in this project will do more of listen.


Please join the team: PRAY. GIVE. GO.

More to come soon.
