A BIRTHDAY PRAYER: I SURRENDER TO SERVE YOU

I called the LORD and He heard me
He sent His Son and He saved me
He delivered my soul from oppression
He anointed my head with His unction
Now He fits me up to do His bidding
To daily bring His word to the living

I thank You, LORD, for my new year
You gladden my heart with Your goodness
My soul and my spirit I surrender
My body in tow to Your harness
To pull the chariot of Your good news
Inspiring, correcting and edifying
To discharge, by grace, my own dues
And fulfill the terms of my calling

Amen in Jesus’ name.

Ⓒ Edith Ugochi Ohaja 2018

Knowing and serving the LORD is the best thing that can happen to anyone. It starts with making peace with God through our Lord Jesus. If you would like to live like this but you have not accepted Jesus as your Lord and Saviour, do pray this short prayer:

PRAYER FOR SALVATION
Almighty God, I repent of my sins and ask you to forgive me. I receive the work Jesus did for me by shedding His blood for my sins. Write my name in the Lamb’s Book of Life and send your Spirit to live in my heart and teach me your word. I receive the grace to live a life that honours you henceforth in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Now, you are born again. Join a Bible-believing group of believers to help you learn, through studying the word of God and prayer, how to live and practise your faith. You are blessed in Jesus’ name.

  27. An epitome of beauty you are, a jewel of inestimable value, the woman with the golden smile, a lecturer with a difference, a mother to all, who is that student that has come in contact with you and wouldn’t have anything beautiful to compliment about you, am yet to see that person, you are indeed a woman of God, words of truth will always remain in your tongue Ma, wishing you a happy birthday and many more fruitful and grace filled years to come.

  30. If you’re course in the university, I will offer it first. If you are the rain, I will come out of my house to feel it because I know it will wash away my sorrows. If I get provoked and you’re the tear in my eyes, I will save it for future purposes. Your smile alone is worth more than thousands folds. God will continue to bless your days, months and years and make them more simple/easy and provide your daily needs and bread. Happy birthday teacher, tutor, Mrs Lecturer, wishing you many more years ahead. All the best for you, MA, for only your articles make me feel happy.

  31. Though this is past your birthday, I pray your life be filled with celebrations from now on. And also this poem is wonderful and indeed God sent his son according to John 3:16 to die for our sins and indeed we have salvation through faith in Christ Jesus and the forgiveness of sins.

As you are stainless, young, beautiful and healthy, so shall you be in the next 100 years of your life… You are an epitome of beauty. Even without makeup, u still look extremely beautiful, more than those who do makeover. I’ve been wondering the secret but I think I now know. When you are a real believer, you’re always radiant and glow like the Angels and that is exactly the way you are. I have decided to be a true believer so that i can shine like Aunty Edith Ohaja.
    I pray for you with the deepest part of my heart that the good Lord you cling unto will always be your armour and shield all the days of your life. All those who hate you for no reason will see the power of God in you and give their lives to God. You shall be strengthened beyond limit so that you can change lives positively with just a smile.
    i love you, ma! Once more, happy belated birthday!

Just few like you.A lot of christian blogs have been converted today. it was through this blog that my life changed and I got closer to God. I will keep saying it,’YOU ARE A BLESSING TO THIS GENERATION’. More rewards are coming to you because God loves those who diligently seek him.you are indeed a humble woman of God. God bless you ma

  36. Happy birthday to the one and only faithful christian hero.Ma you are yet to see God’s Goodness in your life.love you ma. once again Happy birthday and God bless you ma

  37. May God’s blessings ,wisdom, mercy and love never depart from you ma. ..happy birthday and God bless you .

  38. Quite inspiring! Good for Easter meditation. Christ died for us – for the atonement of our sins. But sadly, many of us have neglected this unquantifiable love of Christ. We have so gone astray that we no longer remember our primary objective to Christ,to God. Hence the need to turn back. The need to go back, and surrender to our creator. He promised to forgive all our sins and make us all as white as snow. If only we believe in HIM.

  39. All to Jesus, I surrender;
    All to Him, I freely give.
    He will never forsake me;
    He can never abandon me;
    No matter where I go…

    Thanks be to God, who gave us His only begotten son, Jesus to die for the atonement of sins. Glory to Jesus, who chose to die that we might live; He chose to be poor that we might be rich; He chose to be destroyed, that we might be redeemed. Thanks to the Lord of hosts…

  40. Congrats ma, we wish you successful new age and may God continue to enrich you to the highest dimension and Grant you Divine upliftment so that the world will know how unique and special you are in crafting your writings and I also pray that God will give you Divine wisdom, knowledge and understanding to touch and convert lives. Through your expertise in both oral and writing. The Lord will be your safeguard against any plans of the enemy, they shall not see because the Lord is your shepherd according to Psalm 23 and he will fight those who fight against you according to Psalm 35, the Lord is your shield ma. I pray for long life and everlasting in your life and family. I pray for peace, unity and the divine touch of the holy spirit in your family.
    Amen.

  41. Thank you for the prayers ma. You are a blessing to our generation. Each word you post here have affected me positively. Happy birthday

  88. This is an amazing prayer and also it a good thing to pray such a prayer. In our world today we don’t always see people who make commitment to God. The consciousness of this prayer is that one had to continue to live for the lord at all times, since He was there for us, you should also be there for Him and make sure His biddings come first

  89. May the good Lord always give you the strength to continue the good job u are doing in the life of your students.. U are one in a million.. Thank you for always being there for us.. Happy birthday in arrears MA!

  91. It is a great thing to be born again because even the bible made us to understand that heaven rejoices when a soul is converted…..so brethren, one with God is majority, he does not disappoint if u make him your personal lord and saviour…….accept christ so that you will have life and have it in abundance. tanz for the wonderful post, it really touched me and happy birthday in arrears.

  92. Happy birthday mum.Your new age is without sickness and struggles. You are blessed with all spiritual blessings in the heavenly by Christ Jesus. Gods grace is upon you ma.

  93. Happy birthday ma. It is obvious that your life is in sync with the plan of God for you. May God continue to be with you and bless you just as you bless everyone around you.

  94. Wow!! So short but weighty words that one should reflect upon… This is one of d best birthday prayer.. Knowing d purpose and plans God has for you and fulfilling them is one thing.

  103. A birthday prayer: I surrender to serve you .she is more than just a teacher, a role model,a motivationist ,an inspiration to many indeed, nice poem

  104. “The person with fortitude is the one who perseveres in doing what his conscience tells him he ought to do. He does not measure the value of a task exclusively by the benefit he derives from it, but rather by the service he renders to others.”
    St Josémaria Escriva
    Josemaria Escriva captures an aspect of my lecturer’s quality I want to write. She is one who perseveres to what God directs her to do through her conscience.. as such she listens to her conscience as can be seen in her way of doing things. She is such an ever smiling one which I sometimes asks if she must ever had an enemy because she welcomes all with her smiles and this I believe God gave her as a way to draw people near to him.
    Happy birthday Ma, more blissful years ahead Amen.

  105. I am glad you have been using your wisdom to arrest young fellas to God Almighty. To cap your genuine effort, l admit that total submission to God is the only way one can know what is hidden in the sacred scroll of life. Thanks a lot
