God, The Master Planner

There is none like you Lord, the Master Planner.
From the beginning of time when the heaven was formed, the ocean was born and the earth was drawn.
You made a notion and lights were laid out in bountiful motion.
With great love you stripped out the ocean and you filled the earth with your great affection.
You made the sky, you made a covering over the heavens and the earth you spread out over the sea.
The expanse of each that none can fathom.

With a great plan you breathed life into the deadpan and With great intentions you formed humanity

You breathed upon all flesh and all things dead came to life
Humanity to live on earth, to multiply and be merry
To work the earth and its expanse till we filled our bellies

You who made the earth from the sea and the land from the ocean
You parted the sea and you hung the heavens
You beautify the forest with lilies and
You fill the oceans with all manner of creatures

With a great plan Humanity was made until the pain was such that your Son would come and pay for all our sins He laid on the tree called the cross of Calvary

You planned my beginning all through to the end of my life
You planned my standing up and my sitting down
You planned my happy hours and my sad moments
You planned my wake up call moments and my peaceful, restful moments

You planned what I would look like, talk like and act like
Right from my mother’s womb, you plotted my arrival time
You knitted me together from within her and
Her blood you passed through my veins to give me life, to give me breath

You chose that I may know your son at the right time and
That I may serve the only Holy one at the appointed time
You give grace and you give faith
You make me strong and then you make me steadfast
To walk in your ways so that I may belong to your race

To do your will on earth
To fulfil your purpose for my life
None of my tears are wasted in your room
All of my fears are consumed in the tomb
Every second, minutes, hour and days of my life are accounted for in your book
My life you have written out with your ink

What were you looking for on earth that you would choose me?
To whom do you need a representative that you would count me worthy?
How did you determine the worth of this lost soul that you would pay such a price?
Why would you consider this handmaiden that sins have overtaken
Where will you send me now that My true identity is no longer mistaken
You put together my destiny and you still call me your own
To you, my Lord, my God, the master planner I give all the adoration

The Lord God Who Answers Prayers

Lord God who answers prayers of the saints,
We ask in the name of your son and
You answer in the honour of your name.
We ask that your will be done and
You move in your ways till the midnight sun.
In your kingdom, it shall be done.

We ask your plans to fulfil and
Your answer is to be still,
We ask to accomplish your purpose
You pledge your allegiance to your people,
Your priorities are right and they are your children
In your timing, it shall all be done.

You give chances and you give choices,
You give grace and you give praises
You give honour to the disgraced and
You place the misplaced in your chosen space,
You answer when we call and
You shower your goodness upon all,
By your grace, it shall be done

Your ways are not our ways and your thoughts are not our thoughts,
Your Yes is your Yes and Your No is your No.
Not one of your words return to you void,
Not one of your promises do you not deploy,
All of them are your blessings for us to employ,
Through the night and through the days,
It shall all come to be done.

You do not leave any stone unturned,
You do not leave kingdoms upturned,
You give kings the wisdom to rule and
You establish their dynasties until eternity,
You give grace to the humble and
The proud at heart you cause to stumble,
In your perfect ways, it shall all be done

You give peace to the troubled, strength to the weary,
You sustain, you provide and you protect the needy,
You give hope to the hopeless, help to the helpless and homes to the homeless,
You give light in the dark, courage to the fearful and health to the sick,
Family to the lonely, friends to the isolated
The life you have restored, minds you have renewed,
In your power and your might, it is all done

You do not deceive us into believing
You do not precede your timing
You do not reject when we ask, Your answer is to wait and trust
You do not deny what we desire
No good thing do you withhold from your loved ones

You never keep us waiting and weary
You never keep us praying and hopeless
You never keep us believing and doubting
You always keep us trusting in your perfect timing
It shall be done

I will be careful what I ask of the Lord God
For I might just get it
I will be ready for what I ask of the Lord God
For a trial might come my way
I will be patient in my requests to the Lord God
For His ways are not my ways and his thoughts are not my thoughts
I will endure and be faithful in waiting
For the Lord God honours the faithfulness of His saints

Adoration for God on Father’s day

God, you are the world’s greatest, The greatest of all time.
You are the worlds legend, The first of all firsts.
You are the national treasure
The Lord God we all admire
You are filled with exceptional qualities we all desire but can never acquire

You are greater than the greatest, Greater than father Abraham, the father of our faith
You are higher than the highest, Higher than the generals of all time
All fathers get their names from you

Your love for us is deeper than we can ever imagine
Your love for us never dwindle, it never diminishes, it never changes
Your love for us is unquenchable.
Your love for us is unconditional,  immeasurable and pleasurable
Your deep compassion for us is deeper than the earth
You never reject in spite of our failures
You never withdraw from us in spite of our errors and mistakes
You never scold us beyond what we can handle
You always correct us in love and you bring us back to your loving arms

You love us beyond ways any other father could love us
You care for us more than our earthly father could ever love us
You are always there, you are never changing, never shifting, never moving
You stand by us like a rock
When our father’s and mothers forsake us you are there to carry us in your loving arms

You are the lead above all leaders
You choose the humble at heart and you reject the proud and the boastful
You make and you break leaders
Leaders of all leaders bow before you
They consult you for wisdom and counsel
You are the Leader of all leaders
You are the greatest in heaven and on the earth
You are the greatest leader above the greatest ever lived
There is no end to your leadership

You are the greatest hero of all time
You are the hero whose fame never end
You don’t need anybody’s approval to be a hero
You don’t need anybody’s permission to be a hero and
You don’t need anybody’s acceptance as a hero
We can’t stop talking about you and we can never get rid of you
Nobody can stop you from being a hero

Heroism is in your nature, there is no end to it
You sweep in whenever we’re in need
You come to the rescue when we’re stuck in a rut
You deliver from the oppressor and you fight the cause of the helpless
You watch over us and protects us from the enemy
You save us whenever we call on you
Those who accept you receive the light
Those who reject you grope in darkness

You are the head above all heads
You are the first before all firsts
You preceed all precedents
You preside over all Presidents
You reside over all residents on earth and in heaven
You exist before any other existents
You are God before any other gods, all other gods bow and tremble before you
You rule above all rulers
You reign above all
