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

The Forgiving God

Heavenly Father you are forgiving,
You do not forsake nor do you cast away in our weaknesses,
You do not condemn in our lowliest state,
Neither do shun nor disown us, not in our darkest moment at the least,
You do not turn us over to the enemy
Neither do you make us a prey for the devils.

You are not a man that you would hold grudges against anybody,
You are not a man that you would pay evil for evil,
You are not a man that you would not answer us when we call on you even in our sinful state,
You are not a man who would ignore the request of a loved one,

You are not easily angered
You are not easily frustrated
You are not easily irritated
You are not easily offended
You are not impatient with us

You are long-suffering, forbearing and uncomplaining
You give us long ropes to pull
You are patient and you are kind
You are full of mercy and you are compassionate

You see beyond our actions and you deal with us according to our motives
You look into our hearts and you reward us accordingly
You have mercy upon whom you will have mercy and
You judge the contentious

You see our inadequacies and you love us more
You see our weaknesses and you judge us less
You see our failures and you calm our fears
You see our state of mind and you cover us with your everlasting love
In all our miserable self you cast us not away

You choose to shine in us and through us
You turn our shame into fame
You turn our mess into a message
You turn our passion into flame
You break the stony heart and you give a heart of flesh
You turn over our weaknesses and they are made perfect in your strength
Heavenly Father great is your forgiveness towards us

God, The Generous Giver

God, you are great and you are kind
You are the great gift who keeps giving
You are the generous giver who never gives up
You are the gracious General who never gets weary
The kind who never relents in kindness and always cares
The precious provider who never pretends

You are never tired of giving and never weary in sowing
You never retire from pruning and never take a break from providing
You are never weary of weaning us and you never worry of winter or summer
You never withdraw your supply from us in any season
You are the all-rounder and always kinder than the kindest with your great gifts that reveal your riches

You are rich in kindness
You are great in generosity
Your gifts are unquantifiable
Your grace is matchless
You give gifts no man can fathom
You give grace nobody can comprehend
You give offers nobody can match
You give lifetime riches and honour
They are all part of your generosity

You are kind and you are generous
You are great and you are gracious
Everything I have you have given me
Every breath I breathe you have gifted me
I am alive because you supported me
Your generosity is what I live on

Friends I have you have given me
Food I eat you have provided
Faith I muster you have filled me with
Wisdom I share you shed on me
Grace abounds me because of you
I embrace your generous showers over me

May I not treat your gift with contempt
May I not treat your grace with too much comfort
May I not treat your wealth with weariness
May I not treat your riches with rags and rage
May your grace abound to me, my generous giver
God, You are the greatest giver

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
