Years ago, I was preparing to go home from work when I came upon a Facebook post by Fela Durotoye. In response to that post, I submitted a write up tagged "The Nigeria Of My Dreams" and I was pleasantly surprised to learn that as the winner, I had been selected to share the day with Fela at the Eagle Square on October 1st, 2010.

Adebayo Martins and Fela Durotoye 

When we met, besides praying heartily for me, I received my copy of a presidential invite that gave access to the venue for the independence day celebration. The event of that day inspired another write up: Granny's Diary.

One of the reasons I believe someone would be honored to receive such an invite might be because scarcity increases value and obviously, not too many people get to be invited by a president or king. This event occurred about a decade ago and only recently, I began to ponder on that event in the light of this scripture:

37 On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. 

38 He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.”  

John 7:37-38 NKJV

Here we see Jesus the King, give an "open-ended" invitation in a way that no earthly king would. His call was to “anyone”. Kings and presidents on earth would most likely give an invitation to a banquet or feast with strict security for selected guests and a few reserved tables. Not Jesus. His invite was and still is to us all.

1 “Ho! Everyone who thirsts, Come to the waters; And you who have no money, Come, buy and eat. Yes, come, buy wine and milk Without money and without price.

2 Why do you [a]spend money for what is not bread, And your wages for what does not satisfy? Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good, And let your soul delight itself in abundance.

3 Incline your ear, and come to Me. Hear, and your soul shall live; And I will make an everlasting covenant with you—The sure mercies of David.

Isaiah 55:1-3 NKJV

Trust me, I don't know Him as much as I desperately desire to yet. But with the very little of Him that I know, I can tell you with all certainty: He's a wonderful Father.  

If you don't know God for yourself, I highly recommend Him to you. Please note, this is not an invitation to a religion, it’s a call to a relationship; a true relationship with God.

To further this discuss, I would like to recommend this note to you: An Evening To Remember. If this post blessed you, kindly share with someone or post a comment below.

God bless you.

Psalms 59

1 Deliver me from my enemies, O my God;

Defend me from those who rise up against me.

2 Deliver me from the workers of iniquity,

And save me from bloodthirsty men.

3 For look, they lie in wait for my life;

The mighty gather against me,

Not for my transgression nor for my sin, O Lord.

4 They run and prepare themselves through no fault of mine.

Awake to help me, and behold!

5 You therefore, O Lord God of hosts, the God of Israel,

Awake to punish all the nations;

Do not be merciful to any wicked transgressors. Selah

6 At evening they return,

They growl like a dog,

And go all around the city.

7 Indeed, they belch with their mouth;

Swords are in their lips;

For they say, “Who hears?”

8 But You, O Lord, shall laugh at them;

You shall have all the nations in derision.

9 I will wait for You, O You his Strength;

For God is my defense.

10 My God of mercy shall come to meet me;

God shall let me see my desire on my enemies.

11 Do not slay them, lest my people forget;

Scatter them by Your power,

And bring them down,

O Lord our shield.

12 For the sin of their mouth and the words of their lips,

Let them even be taken in their pride,

And for the cursing and lying which they speak.

13 Consume them in wrath, consume them,

That they may not be;

And let them know that God rules in Jacob

To the ends of the earth. Selah

14 And at evening they return,

They growl like a dog,

And go all around the city.

15 They wander up and down for food,

And howl if they are not satisfied.

16 But I will sing of Your power;

Yes, I will sing aloud of Your mercy in the morning;

For You have been my defense

And refuge in the day of my trouble.

17 To You, O my Strength, I will sing praises;

For God is my defense,

My God of mercy.


Psalm 121

1 I will lift up my eyes to the hills—

From whence comes my help?

2 My help comes from the Lord,

Who made heaven and earth.

3 He will not allow your foot to [a]be moved;

He who keeps you will not slumber.

4 Behold, He who keeps Israel

Shall neither slumber nor sleep.

5 The Lord is your keeper;

The Lord is your shade at your right hand.

6 The sun shall not strike you by day,

Nor the moon by night.

7 The Lord shall preserve you from all evil;

He shall preserve your soul.

8 The Lord shall preserve your going out and your coming in

From this time forth, and even forevermore.


Psalm 126

1 When the Lord brought back the captivity of Zion,

We were like those who dream.

2 Then our mouth was filled with laughter,

And our tongue with singing.

Then they said among the nations,

“The Lord has done great things for them.”

3 The Lord has done great things for us,

And we are glad.

4 Bring back our captivity, O Lord,

As the streams in the South.

5 Those who sow in tears

Shall reap in joy.

6 He who continually goes forth weeping,

Bearing seed for sowing,

Shall doubtless come again with rejoicing,

Bringing his sheaves with him.



1. Every power spending the night to pull me down, o sun, through them away in the name of Jesus.

2. O day, arise and give me my portion, in Jesus name.

3. O day, arise and curse any power stealing my portion in the name of Jesus.

10. Thou power of polygamous witchcraft, die in the name of Jesus.

11. Affliction of the day, die, in the name of Jesus.

12. Every negative flying power delegated against my destiny, the angle of God shall pursue you in the name of Jesus.

14. Oh Lord let the wicked be shaken out of my heavens in the name of Jesus.

15. O sun, as you are coming out today, uproot every wickedness targeted against me and my family, business etc. In Jesus name.

16. I program blessings and breakthroughs into my life today in Jesus name.

17. Every dark power hidden in the heavenlies against me, I pull you down in the name of Jesus.

18. Thus saith the Lord "let no principality, power, ruler of darkness, spiritual wickedness trouble me, because I bear in my body the marks of the lamb of God in Jesus name.

19. I destroy every satanic connection between the heavenlies and my place of birth in Jesus name.

20. I recover all my properties dedicated to the sun, the moon, the stars and traditional gods by the power of darkness in Jesus name.

21. O lord give me the ability and the wisdom that is equal to my opportunity in Jesus name.
