Pastor dropped the bomb; you will have to go back to your home. No battle is won
from afar. Soldiers must be on ground to take over the territory.
No president can effectively rule a nation from a distance, when there are other
contenders for the position.
No right-thinking person leaves the bag full of money that you worked hard for,
outside just because others wanted the same bag.
I was defeated, I had no excuse. I collected the diary and decided to go home.
Pastor Emma asked us to pray. The prayers were sounding distant to me because I
was lost in thoughts until I started hearing Pastor saying something like curses. I open
my eyes to check if Pastor Mrs. is still connecting to these curse-like prayers. I saw
she was saying big amen and vibrating…
That’s when I know I’m in deep trouble. How do I escape now, why did I come to
Pastor’s house? I shouldn’t have come here o. I have made mouth and that useless
husband of mine would not take me seriously if I go back home.
Pastor was busy praying and I heard him saying….
Father, make sister Joy blind…. Ahhh I can’t say amen ooo
Father, make sister joy deaf….ahhh if I say amen and I suddenly lose my eyes and
ears with a very promiscuous and dangerous husband, it means I’m in trouble….I
didn’t say amen.
I was just shaking my head, but in my mind, I was cancelling it in Jesus name. I never
blind, he has many girls, what if I blind, he will be having sex on top of me. God
Pastor was still vibrating and the wife also was bursting in tongues. As the owner of
the issues, I don’t think I can pray with all that seriousness… But the next set of
prayers made me know he was praying from experience…
Father, the grace you gave me to be blind to my wife’s reckless lifestyle, give sister
Father, I was deaf to rumors, let her be deaf to rumors.
Trust me, I still didn’t say amen. I just kept shaking my head.
Finally, the prayer finished and as a good member I thanked them. Pastor wrote
something on a paper and asked me to open it when I get home.
I left their house and started walking about aimlessly, I didn’t plan to go home, it will
be a total disgrace upon all my bragging. Ige will laugh me to scorn.
I was walking absent mindedly when my leg hit a stone and I looked up. What I saw
made me grow cold.
