The last episode of our story saw Tonye acknowledging that she had misbehaved and crying her eyes out. Unfortunately, she was unable to reach Obinna to tender her apology. One wonders why Obinna did not answer her knocks on his door. Tonye recalled how angry he was and wondered if he would forgive her. This episode offers us some clues to these puzzles. Enjoy!


After Titi left Obinna’s room with the jollof rice he asked her to send to Tonye, he hurriedly changed and left for a worship event he had been invited to in a church in town. An upcoming a capella trio called Bethesda, after the pool where the Lord Jesus healed a paralytic, had been invited. Miracles took place under their anointed singing. Obinna saw a man with swollen legs, caused by a kidney infection, healed; a staff of the university who had been paralysed from a stroke recovered the use of her limbs and lots of other clear manifestations of divine power. It was such an awesome experience and he wished Tonye were there.

He told himself that line of thought didn’t mean anything, but his mind kept going back to Tonye throughout the service. He wished things were different between them. How could they move from harmony to acrimony in such a short time? One minute Tonye was cuddling him, the next minute they were exchanging bitter accusations. He wondered if there was anything he could have done differently. But after much reflection, he did not see how he could be blamed for their present estrangement.

When the hosting pastor came to give his closing remarks and make the altar call for salvation, Obinna went over to the smaller and parallel half-wall building that served as the Children’s Department of the church. It had less people inside and he went to one of the back benches to talk to God about the blowup between he and Tonye. Unknown to him, Tonye was also deep in prayer, having called on him and received no response.

Obinna prayed that God should forgive him in every way he had made mistakes in his relationship with Tonye. He admitted that he had received calming words from God like, “Just be patient” and “All things work together for good …” while Tonye was away. He, however, complained that from the time she arrived, all Tonye had done was aggravate him and make him feel he had made a terrible mistake in proposing to her.

He reviewed their relationship pre and post his unexpected proposal of marriage. He remembered the almost tangible connection to her he had felt that day he proposed and when she came to his room earlier today. He had no doubt that his move to ask for Tonye’s hand in marriage had been inspired, but he was afraid that today’s events were just a taste of the disagreements he and she would have in future. He, therefore, told God he was handing Tonye over to him to deal with. He had no intention of discipling an unwilling soul.

And much as he still loved her, he wanted to maintain his distance and call off the engagement. If Tonye wished to marry Boma, he wanted her to be free to do so. If she felt her current lifestyle was okay, he didn’t want to argue with her about it. He only wanted peaceful relations with her and everyone else, just as the Bible demanded. No more talk of marriage, no ties to each other.


By the time he reached this point in his prayer, the service was over. He wasn’t sure what God’s response to his demands was but he joined the crowds spilling out of the church premises and sought transportation back to the lodge. He felt some inner peace as he jostled with other commuters for a taxi and thanked God for it even though he didn’t know what it meant with regard to he and Tonye. The tricycle taxi he joined dropped him at the beginning of his street about 9:45 p.m. It had been a long day. He would finally eat and go to sleep. He hoped that the next day would be more serene than that Saturday had been.

Tonye stirred due to the buzzing of a mosquito near her ear. She slapped her cheek instinctively in a bid to kill the fly. It escaped and came round again. Tonye cursed and sat up. She was surprised to see that the time was almost 11 p.m.. She had drifted off during her tear-soaked prayers due to exhaustion. She must have slept for several hours. Her plan had been to try Obinna’s door again around 8 p.m. Her earlier attempt in the late afternoon had yielded no response. But thanks to her dozing, it was too late to go to him.

Still, she was determined to contact him that night. She tried his line. Unfortunately, it was switched off. As she was wondering how else to reach him, the pangs in her stomach caught her attention. She had been ignoring them while she prayed. She wondered if the food Obinna sent her was still fresh. She thanked God he had put it in a warmer. The food was not only warm, it was very tasty and too much. She scooped out what she needed and transferred the rest into a plastic bowl for refrigeration.

After eating, she remembered that she and Obinna were friends on Facebook. She wanted to pour out her heart to him via a private message (PM) but a look at his account was not encouraging. His last post was a few months’ old. She knew he hated WhatsApp (considered it too obtrusive). She decided to go back to sleep and see him the next morning.

But try as she might, sleep refused to come. So at 2 a.m., a weary and anxious Tonye left her room to knock on Obinna’s door. At first, Obinna didn’t know that the knock that woke him up from sleep was on his door. But as the sound continued and got louder, he got up and was surprised to see Tonye through the peephole. What is she up to this time? And why knock on my door at such an improper hour? Although he didn’t know exactly what time it was, he figured it must be the wee hours of the morning. He decided to answer the door before she woke up the whole lodge.


Thankfully, he was wearing pajamas and a pullover because of the cold weather and Tonye’s shapely body was draped in a floral patterned dressing gown. The moment he opened the door, Tonye, whose face seemed red and puffy (apparently from long weeping), sank to her knees.

“Obi, I beg you in the name of God to forgive me. You can flog me or punish me anyway you like, but don’t push me away.”

Obinna was speechless. Then they were both startled by some hand clapping from the direction of the lounge. Apparently, they had an audience. Some guys who were watching a movie in the lounge had been alerted by the persistent knocking and had been looking through the windows to see what would follow. How embarrassing, Obinna thought. He hadn’t meant to let Tonye into his room. He had just intended to find out what she wanted. But with the unwanted audience, he grabbed her hands and pulled her up. The claps intensified and then turned into cheers and roars as he drew Tonye into his room.

“Lord, have mercy! This is not how I planned to live my life,” Obinna silently prayed.

Hi! Do stay for a chat.

Obinna is saying one thing in his prayer while his heart is saying something else. When your heart and your head are moving in opposite directions, which do you follow?

Some people feel prayer is not complete unless we hear clearly from God on our petition. Do you agree?

Do you hear from God? If yes, through what means do you hear from him?

Are you easily accessible to those who want to reach you or are you often incommunicado? If yes, why?

  • Nnamani Nnenna

    I like the fact that in every thing that has happened to Obinna, he always goes back to God through prayers. I feel Tonye has learnt her lesson and wants to change for the better and save their relationship.

  • Jibulu Ngozi

    Obinna did the right thing by putting this matter into the hands of GOD though throughout the program he thought about himself and Tonye,it takes a strong man to let go of someone he loves sincerely, Tonye finally sought God’s presence in the situation and has fully admitted her mistake from the story so far.
    The suspense is increasing. Can’t wait for the next episode.

    • Edith Ohaja

      And that will be a bumper episode, and the last. Coming up soon! Meanwhile, may God grant your heart’s desires in Jesus’ name.

  • Kelly Tiffany

    This was an inspiring story, it has really taught me to pray about my problems and have faith. I think Tonye made d right decision by going back to apologize.

    • Edith Ohaja

      I think so too. Arrogance in a relationship so serious would be disastrous. May you find favour daily in Jesus’ name.

  • Erilem Happiness

    What I do is pray but allow God’s will to be done….
    The story keeps getting interesting…

  • Joe Odo

    Having followed this story from onset,I come to realise that what is written is written,no matter what happened.If Obinna and Tonye are meant to be one,there is no disagreement or misunderstanding that can halt it. Obinna should forgive her and go ahead with the engagement b/c nothing good comes easy and one must have a story to tell for every achievement.Thank you ma for this educative and didactic platform.

    • Edith Ohaja

      Praise the Lord! I don’t know if that “what is written is written” always holds true. Good advice you gave though. You are richly blessed in Jesus’ name.

  • Okere Jovita

    No matter what you do in life, always remember to go to God in prayer, which is one thing I love about this story; Tonye went back to God.

    • Edith Ohaja

      Yes, she thought she was smarter than Obinna, but on second thoughts she saw that she had messed up. I pray that God gives us the humility to take the first step to rectify things when we have done some damage to our relationships by our words and deeds. And may you be splendidly blessed in Jesus’ name.

  • Nnamani Ruth nnenna

    Wow, what a twist! I hope Tonye stays for good. If after all his prayers Tonye still came back, then I think it’s simply an assignment from God. God wants Obinna to make Tonye a better person. I love this, ma.

    • Edith Ohaja

      Okay! I think you’ll love the next episode even more. Abundant grace in yoyr academics in Jesus’ name.

  • Ezema Maryjane

    Tonye is really so sorry for offending Obinna and becuase she messed up her chances, she is trying to right the wrong. But I doubt she has confessed her sins before God…infact i dont believe she is born again. She needs to be in the same spiritual level with Obinna. I hope to see her get born again in the next episode.

    • Edith Ohaja

      The next episode will be the last. It will be like a double episode. I believe you will enjoy. You are lifted in Jesus’ name.

  • I’m so happy how this story ended – the fact that Tonye went back to seek God’s face.
    It’s always good to remember that God is the only way out of any situation in life and that He alone is the provider of light.


    God is the only help we have. It was wise for Tonye to seek God’s help.

    • Edith Ohaja

      And it will be wiser if she settles into a steady relationship with God. That way, she will learn good speech and conduct. Cheers!

  • Nkwocha chibueze innocent

    Love is not something we can jump into there should be mutual understanding and we should also pray to God for the right person and also reduce jealousy as was seen in the case of tonye

  • Dominion Eze

    I need to see Tonye confess her sins before God…we need to hear that she now born again in the next story

  • So far, everything is coming together.i feel Obinna should accept Tonye

  • Thomas Rebecca

    Wow! Obinna has done much, it isn’ t easy to put up with someone like Tonye. And he is indeed a Child of God; his prayer life is worthy of emulation. Knowing that prayer means talking to God, we should learn to pray about everything and anything

    • Ugwoke ifechukwu melvina

      Seek God’s help and guidance in your time of need and he will answer. Obinna ran to God for help and his prayer was answered. I love the way Tonye handled the situation by apologizing and not allowing her pride to interfere. A lot of relationships these days don’t last because they make pride the third person in the relationship. We should endeavor to always be prayerful because prayer is the key to a successful relationship.

  • OMG! That was one clear manifestation of the power of prayer. I’m happy for the duo. I wish them luck. Please keep on with the story Ma, we are waiting. This episode has taught me that God is interested in every aspect of our lives and prayer is one route to getting God intervene in your situation.

  • Ogidi Gift Uzoma

    Obinna did the right thing by seeking God’s advice in the place of prayer.

    God bless you ma

  • Nnakee Chisom

    What a nice peace my able lecturer, this story is so familiar I just pray Obinna forgives her and tty to lead her to Christ.

  • When we think God isn’t hearing our prayers…he is!

    Indeed no problem is bigger than God.


    How things work sha…. Tonye is praying for Obinna and Obinna is also praying for Tonye.

    This is true love jare.

    I love this story!

  • Nwanze Josephine Chidera

    God really took control of the relationship. Thank God Tonye ruminated over Titi’s words to her and retraced her steps before it was to late. When God approves a thing, nothing can disapprove it.

  • Nwanze Josephine Chidera

    God really took control of the situation. Thank God Tonye listened to Titi’s advice and retraced her steps before it was too late. Though Obinna said a thing to God in prayer but desired another thing in his heart. But God knew the best for him because he sought his (God) face.

  • Okoli Ezinne Juliet

    One perculiar thing I like about Obinna is that he is prayerful. Once there is any problem, he is ever ready to put God first.

  • Ejiofor Emmanuel

    Why is Tonye always lucky? Her grace is too much

  • Chah ugochukwu

    Humility is the key to all in this world. I admire that in Tonye. Some people would have felt too big to apologise. I also admire her persistence too. Hopefully she is really ready to lead a new and improved life.

  • Oleighibe Oluebube Tessy

    Wow, what a bold step! How many of us (ladies) can try or do what Tonye has done? I doubt if I can do it, lol. I really applaud Tonye. I keep wondering if Obinna’s prayer has anything to do with Tonye’s recent action. It really pays to trust and serve God.

  • Ochei Anthony Arinze

    Prayer is the key to solving every problem that you find yourself in and I admire it in the life of Obinna.

  • I learnt one thing from Obinna , and that is to always put God first in all you do and to always have the spirit of forgiveness.

  • Ozukwe Mirian chisom

    No matter the problems or unfortunate circumstance we face or find our self in life, we should always remember that we have a living father up there who is willing and ready to listen to us and come to our aid. Also we should learn to forgive and lead people to God. Thanks Aunty Edith. I can’t wait for the next part.

  • Joana ushie

    Now am loving this. Nice one

  • Kenneth Ebuka

    Divine arrangement! Maybe Obinna would have driven Tonye out of his room save for the applauds from the “unwanted audience”. Forgiveness is always the right path.

  • Iroegbu Chinatu Amara

    Awwwn… What a touching apology. These lounge mates self always behaving like a peeping Tom. Let’s see what will go on in the other room. Will the engagement continue or not? Tonye and Obinna what a hilarious couple.

  • Ugwu Chizoba Janet

    One thing I have been taught so far is that a relationship wax stronger and is being resolved in conflict when there is a heart to always accept wrong and apologizes when he/she must have done a wrong. I must commend Tonye for being humble.

  • Oma

    We should always seek Gods directions before anything and also go to him In Prayer if things go wrong .
    Asking for forgiveness by tonye is a bold step which I know most lady won’t try because of pride.
    And from the look of things Obinna is ready to forgive her , if not he would have asked her to go back to were she is coming from or not answer the door.

  • Abonyi chisom E

    Wow this episode is amazing,prayer is the master key and solution to any problem. I just hope that what am thinking will happen in the last episode.

  • Kat

    Lol. I’m surprised Obinna hasn’t died of embarrassment from his lodge mates all this while. I know he is going to forgive Tonye and as much as I dislike the idea of him accepting to continue their relationship, that may be the right thing to do, forgive her. Can’t wait to read the next episode

  • There is nothing as always going to the Lord on prayer . Thank you ma

  • Nnamani Eunice chidinma

    I know Obinna is going to forgive tonye, he just love her so much, I always like the fact that he always run to God for help??

  • Ezeh Blessing

    Wow! With thinking about her and having prayed he should forgive her, and I pray Tonye learn her lesson to be faithful and mind the words she utter with her fiancée. Can’t wait for the next episode.

  • Nnamani Oluoma Esther

    Sometimes our head tells us a different thing from our heart. In his situation We can only trust God to lead us in the right direction. We should pray and seek God’s help and he would surely guide us to do the right thing.

  • Agu Ginika

    Wow… I can see reconciliation
    coming…indeed prayer works all things and I believe Obinna will be willing to forgive. I just wish Tonye learns her lesson on the need for faithfulness to prevail in a relationship.

  • Afiadigwe Nnedinso Rita

    I love the fact that Tonye acknowledged her fault and Obinna on the other hand always ask God for direction before he takes any action.
    It really ended in love.


    Wow! This episode was very funny and i am beginning to really like this couple, (obinna and tonye). I can’t wait to read the final episode to see how their story ends.

  • ifunaya

    forgiveness is everything, Ma i don’t know whether to say it was Gods way of answering their prayers or what but i guess we would find out in the next series bless you Ma

  • Nnaka Chiagoziem Prince

    To begin with, I can say that God can never be morcked, Obinna loved him first before loving Tonye, and by that I know God is love so He’ll do everything to moake his son Obinna happy. I know God can never let his own who has been faithful and dedicated to shame, God has answered obinna’s prayers. The moment Obinna handed her and their issues over to God, I knew he has gone to the right source.

  • Okoro nneoma

    Ma you are so creative. this is such a sweet piece. I love the fact that they just left everything in God’s hands and that Tonye acknowledged her wrong deeds and apologized. Finally, there’s light once more in this tunnel.

  • Anekwe Paschaline

    Well, seems like Tonye is really remorseful but then she needs stability. She ran to God when she was in need, I wonder if she would continue after she’s got it. When my head and my heart are at odds, I don’t think I’ve actually paid attention to the one I follow but I’m sure I always follow the option that seems most viable.


    When you think you have lost something inside, prayer is everything. The two birds are a bit dramatic and i believe Obinna will forgive her as she has learnt her lessons

  • Uchechukw Felix Ibeziako

    Its really emotional and exhibits Love.
    Obinnas head might have willed for another thing but the heart for me always take the lead. If he followed his head and locked the door he will have reasons to regret his actions but as he followed his heart, it feels much easier for him.
    Meanwhile for the medium God speaks to us through I would say its through what we feel in our heart.

  • Clifford Ndujihe

    Hmm am happy for Tonye, wow never expected her to plead that way but all the same their lodgemates have a problem oh

  • agbo jude

    Obinna always pleases me with his action, I love the fact that he puts everything in prayer, and thank God tonye had realized her mistake, to make some mistakes is sure but to realize it and make an amendment is another thing.

  • Ugwoke Victor Nnabuike

    Obinna’s has been inspiring me from the beginning of this series to this point. He has always proven himself worthy of emulation, by anyone who is a true Christian. He has not only put God first in every situation he found himself, but also accommodative. The pains he’s passing through, notwithstanding. We should learn from Obinna, while we continue to ask God for grace in dealing with situations like this.
    Thank you Aunty Edith.

  • Chioma Agbaraka

    I am glad Tonye finally did the right thing. It’s not just okay to sit and feel remorse, seek for forgiveness too.
    Obinna is indeed a good man, Tonye is really lucky.

  • Ugwu Chika Samson

    It is good when one misbehave, he or she should accept the fact. It is a good start for the two love birds, am happy obinna forgive Tonye even when Tonye do not deserve his mercy but wrath.

  • Chukwunwenwa Chinenye

    There’s light at the end of the tunnel. It’s good to know that Tonye felt remorseful and went as far as going down on her knees to apologize.

    Well, I think she actually needs to continue keeping in touch with God so he’ll direct her path.

    Both of them deserves peace of mind.

  • Okonkwo Goodness Chiamaka

    One good thing tonye did is asking for forgiveness. When we retrace our step the best thing to do is to plead and go down our knees and plead for mercy.

  • Onyejekwe favour kosisor

    We don’t necessarily have to hear the words from God directly before we know what’s right and wrong, that’s why he gave us a conscience that guides and shapes us but we have crushed it. Obinna had better be careful with his actions, sometimes love is not enough!

  • Ajibo Chioma Blessing

    Sometimes what our head and heart tells us is really confusing but when backed up with prayers something good well result because God will always direct us. Prayer was really needed in this situation as Obinna did and Tonye to

  • Blessing Udeobasi

    Awwwn! Love is strange.
    When love happens, even the most hardened heart becomes as soft as Lion Bread ?.
    I know God is in charge of Obinna and Tonye’s case…. Everything seems to be working out fine now.
    I pray God completes what he started.

    Nice story MA… the suspense and graphical illustration is killing.
    I have so much to learn.

  • Onwusonye Promise

    Wow! This is the first good thing Tonye has ever done since this story started.
    At least she overcame her pride and went to seek forgiveness.
    Nice move from her…Obinna is a brave man too, with a free Spirit and a kind heart. I pray things work out fine between them.

  • ogbodo somtochukwu

    i tink i understand this obinna’s situation , the decision on love matters is not an easy one to make
    to me , i will fellow my heart oooo…just dt i will drag my brain with it..
    and no, sometimes ,evn the silence is a sign from God
    when dealing with God , u need to following him diligently ,he can
    decide not to speak , u need to listen to that silence .

    yes , i hear God in my heart ….its comes clear in my ear
    sometimes ,he speaks and its comes to me like an idea.

    about being accessible, yes , i am
    i feel its one way i can be of help to people
    i love giving a listening ear to people …help them find solutions to any problem they have.

  • Agbo Onyekachi Obumneme

    When your heart is saying one thing and the head is saying another, the truth most time is what your heart is saying but we often times ignore the one our heart is telling us because what we needed at that time is the one that our head is telling us. God may not necessarily speak aloud to you before you know He is speaking, some times He speaks through His word, His prophet, dreams, trance or through another individual etc.

    I think this relationship is becoming interesting and I just hope they keep it pure free from immorality.

  • Agbo Onyekachi Obumneme

  • Onyia Queendalene Ngozi

    Everything that happens in our life happens for a reason. You should follow your heart when it comes to things that are positive just like Tonye who thought of her actions earlier and knew that she has annoyed Obinna, she lowered herself to beg Obinna for forgiveness not withstanding the presence of their lodge mates.

  • Enobong Daniel

    “The path you thread should not contradict the convictions of your heart.” Obinna should use his instinct this time around. As for tonye, it’s a good thing she realized how selfish and immature she is.

  • Ibe favour kalu

    When it comes to taking decisions,we should follow the heart not the head,that’s what I do: I follow my heart. Secondly, prayer is aways complete even if u never got a reply directly from God. God answers us in different ways. Lastly, I hope Obinna forgives Tonye.

  • Obinna is such a calm and prayerful gentleman and I admire his relationship with Tonye.The way Tonye accepted her mistakes and went back to Obinna to ask for forgiveness was a nice act.

  • Ogbu Gloria

    Awwwn this their lodge mates are always there to cheer them as if they are the ones in the relationship.
    Obinna and Tonye should keep up with seeking God, I know his will, will surely prevail and they should both learn to follow their hearts and be ready to help each other in their weakness

  • Ozioko Glory Oluchi

    Hearing from God whenever we pray is not the only way to assertain whether God heard us. Jesus Christ told us that anything we ask, we should believe that we have received. And also that anything we ask in His name, we shall receive. Therfore, God hears us whenever we pray in Jesus name. One may be spiritually deaf to hear from God, but God is not dead to hear us whenever we pray to Him.

  • Eze Blessing Ada

    For one, I love the Obinna personality. I mean, how does one decide to always do the right thing without much hassle? Obinna always goes back to God through prayers, moreso, leaving everything in God’s hand. This comes as something to learn from: always let God take control.

  • Ugwu Amarachi Matilda

    I think Tonye Is truly remorseful for her actions and thank God she took a bold step in going to apologize. I just wish Obinna will forgive her though he might find it difficult but I think he will forgive her and take her back regarding his love for her. I just wish that Tonye won’t make this same mistake again. Nice story!

  • Ezeh Onyekachukwu c

    This episode is so touching. I pray Tonye stays for good this time. Prayer always have a way of doing things, who believed that proud Tonye can go as far as kneeling down to apologize to Obinna. I can’t wait to enjoy the last episode.

  • Joy emeka

    Awwwn, obinna should just forgive her, she is so, so sorry,just look at how she knelt down, I am beginning to imagine this story in my head

  • To err is human and to forgive is Divine, we all make mistakes and seek for forgiveness yet not all mistakes are forgiven. Thank God for the bold step Tonye took, on the other hand Obinna is such a free spirited young man, not everyone will forgive Tonye due to her attitude remember pride goes before a fall

  • Agugbua chisom

    This goes to the lenght of showing that every relationship needs prayer for it to work. Am actually surprised that Tonye did the right thing. Thank God she knew what to do and how to do it. I hope she doesnt change after this.

  • Ukpai-uma Lucy

    Very well. First, you get to trust God in prayers. Secondly, you humble yourself to apologise.

  • Oba Cindy biobele

    Yayyy. I’m happy for them. Yes, Tonye is truly sorry. I believe Obinna wull find 8t in his heart to forgive her. They’ve really been through a lot and deserve a happy ending. I just hope she doesn’t mess up again.

  • Nwosu chinwedu favour

    Wow! Am happy for them , I pray Tonye stays for good

  • Grace ugwuaneke

    Love is truly wonderful and God answers a sincere prayer. thank God she apologised and they are back.

  • Immanuella Uwa

    Praying about problems is always the right way to go. i admire it in all that Obinna did. I also feel Tonye has learnt her lesson and wants to change for the better.

  • Ajibo lovelyn onyedikachi

    Waooo, obinna really have a good heart indeed, his type is rare to find this days. I have really learnt a lot in this story , to always commit my problems into God’s hand. Obinna’s character and way of putting God first in all his situation is an epitome of emulation


    Indeed there’s power in prayers as it reflects in Obinna’s attitude of consulting God through prayers which reminds me of the fact that I serve the God of all flesh and nothing is impossible for him to do

  • Akuma Victor

    I probably should have started this story from the very first episode to grasp the reason behind Obinna’s annoyance but whatever be the case, I know he still love and cares for Tonye for him to have beckoned on God to help their union and Tonye feeling sorry for actions show she still cares about being with Obinna. Hence, we are called on to be both loving and forgiving irrespective of who offends us.

  • Ugwuanyi Collette Mmesoma

    I really admire Obinna’s action, though he never planned to let her in but knew how embarrassing it will be to ignore her,changed his plan. Tonye is really sorry to the extent she had sleepless night and had no other choice but to beg for his forgiveness as early as possible, not minding the uncomfortable situation that moment.

  • Okemiri Ifunanya Diana

    Sometimes when I pray and my heart moves from it, i stop for a moment or sometimes I start again, I ask God to help me focus because we all know we can’t do two thing at the same time, for the story we know forgiving is divine,thank God both made amend.

  • Izuogu Ozioma Precious

    Thank God that she had an understanding and apologize him. And from this post,it is clear that prayer is the key to all!

    It’s good Tonye has realised it’s her fault. Obi really did good by forgiving. It means he had made up his mind to forgive before she surfaced. Well, when the head and the heart say different things, I think that of the heart should be followed because a prayer of the heart is of faith.Moreover, being always available is too good to be compared to the attitude of incommunicado.

  • Okere Jovita

    Obinna takes prayer seriously and that is very good of him
    God is really on his side
    Thank God Tonye listened to Titi’s advice

  • iheanyi ugochi Elizabeth

    This piece really thought me alot. Whenever we are perplexed we should go back to God in prayer as obinna did because HE is always interested in every little case in our life.

  • Asogwa chidera promise

    This story is becoming interesting?? …I like the fact that obinna is always putting everything in prayers. And tonye too is still prayerful despite all her wrong doings. But those their lodge mates sef??…they like amebo o??

  • Amadi Sandra

    Prayer aswerwth all, and one thing I learned from this piece is to always pray to God no matter what just like Obinna did. He is the God that answereth by fire. Also, I feel Tonye has learned her lessons too. Thank you ma.

  • Ossai Chidimma Linda

    The best apology so far! I am team Tonye and Obinna.

  • Favour Nnaemeka

    Wow, I see a reconciliation coming and I hope it all ends well. I really like the strategic placing of the neighbours as an audience in a way that serves as comic relief too. This is a very good read!

  • Chimezie Goodness Adimchinobi

    Wow!!! Am loving this.Humility,loyalty and fotgiveness i’ve realised are enough to calm the raging storm.

  • Onovoh Adaeze Jennifer

    Obinna should just let things flow naturally.If God has said yes to their relationship,then so be it.

  • Omaga Chiagozie

    Irrespective of what he is going g through, Obinna still loves Tonye and that’s is why he presented everything to God in prayer. Prayer is the solution to our problems. Tonye on the other hand did a good thing by asking for forgiveness the way she did. God! Am so loving this story can’t wait to read the final episode.

  • Ugwu Ogochukwu A

    There is nothing prayers can’t do. The fact that they both presented the situation to God made it work that way. God answers one in so many ways. It must not necessarily be through a direct message. So, Obinna thinking he haven’t gotten any response from his prayers was mistaken because Tonye’s apology to him was totally God’s doing.

  • Obi-eze Adaobi

    Obinna should have listened to Tonye instead of leaning on his own understanding, he should have known that God has answered his prayers through Tonye. In essence, when we see anything good after praying to God concerning any issue we should learn to flow with it instead of leaning on our own understanding.

  • Nwata Blessing Chinyere

    In times of trouble, talk to God in prayers. Prayer is the route of peace to the troubled soul. Obinna always run to God when trouble blows, and God comes in to calm everything. He has the answers to all questions

    I love the fact Tonye finally apologized. Yeah!! Love wins.
    What happens next?
    Wait, let’s see.

  • Ani Fabian chukwuebuka

    I really love the fact that obinna never hesitated in always taking his problems to God through prayers.this piece have made me to understand that amidst pressures, problems and circumstances beyond our control we should always learn to consult our maker and creator. Nice piece ma

  • Ochekwu Caroline Ene

    Am so glad that Tonye finally realized her mistakes and also went as far as apologizing the way she did. I really hope she learnt her lesson time. Obinna really has a good heart, even tho they don’t end up together but still remain friend that alone is enough but Tonye would have lot a good Man that should have been in her life.

  • Uko Iniobong Anthony.

    Wow! Tonye you did well by seeking God’s face. He will bless you for Obinna. You both meant to be together.

  • Idika Uloma Sophia

    Love is the greatest, and love surpasses all.They are truly in love with each other.Prayer is the key to every of our problems. Go to God in prayers, and see things working out perfectly. I love this….

  • Godwin Grace

    Hmmmmm, so, what is Tonye up to again? Hope this repentance is genuine?

  • Enwerem Chiamaka

    God is always ready to welcome us back if truly repentant. Let me see how this love burds end up

  • Uzoma chidera

    Laying your matters to God is very important, this story is a good example of God being involved in your matter and I pray that as tonye has realised her mistakes obinna will accept her wholeheartedly and new stories will manifest.
