ADAURE NEEDS YOUR PRAYERS

Immigration Matter, Divine Matter
The past two days have been rather interesting and this weekend will either be the worst yet to come in my entire life or the one where I put the most faith in God and believe that He will never fail in his promises to me. The blog entry I had planned was going to be something totally different as I was driving back on Thursday night. But my jubilation ended very quickly on Friday morning. I was thinking that wow things worked out after all, in spite of all and despite all. However it all seemed to good to be true and although I have not cried blood yet, it is as good as that . Anyways I know there are prayer warriors out there and right now I need all your prayers. This 'Immigration Matter' has gotten some major 'K-LEG' and as it stands only God can intercept the devil that is hard at work. For any haters, please take a vacation, go to the beach and erase Addy from your mind or just hit pause on your hateration for the next few days. My hustle will not be in vain and in my thirst and hunger God will not present me with a feast that is a mere mirage. My enemies will not prevail because God is on my side. When Jesus lifts you up, no man can bring you down, When Jesus says YES and has given you what HE says belongs to you, BELIEVE that no matter what road blocks or obstacles that may stand in your way it will be yours. If it will take an Iranian or North Korean missile to get it out of your way, HE will do all it takes to give you what is yours. I just have to BELIEVE and speak by FAITH. I will not be blogging for the next few days until this whole thing has been prayed and sorted out. I am too distraught to think or be funny, more like I am in a different zone. I will be logging in to approve your comments and no I am not asking for a pity party, I just need you to pray along with me. It is a SEEEERIOUS MATTER like the AKA's would say.

Meanwhile I have been accused of plagiarising someone's blog in my last ANTM Season Premier post where I mention receiving Chimamanda Adichie's book 'Half of A Yellow Sun'. At first I laughed and rained abuses on the anonymous person because I thought it was a joke but turns out it is not. I take such accusations seriously and there's nothing funny about false accusations or plagiarism. (By the way due to the nature of the immigration situation, I am reading my Bible this entire weekend instead and not the novel as I had planned)

For any who is wondering, I did miss John Legend on Oprah. I thought it was on at 4pm but turns out it was on at 3pm in LA. Argh.. the stupidity. I will be getting TIVO. Meanwhile if anybody saved the show, please holla at me. If you haven't bought ElDee's new CD, you should. Just got it in the mail as well and 'ME LIKES'. Will update you sometime next week on the situation. Have a good rest of the weekend and THANK YOU for all your prayers.

Adaure,
May God see you through and give you a triumphant testimony to the glory of His Holy Name in the Almighty Name of Jesus Christ our Lord, Saviour and Messiah. Amen.

Pray Psalms 40 to 45. Pray sincerely. And as you believe so you shall receive.

I have sister Dee in the US who can also support you. See her link on my latest post on Kisses & Roses.

You keep on praising and thanking God.

Addy,

Trust me i feel ur pain.. i've walked in the shoes u're in now so i know how it feels.(btw i came into the country legally :), na 2 change status, na im kata kata bust o!
However the Lord who made a way for me when there seemed to be no way will make a way for u as well.
My God who answered my prayers in my time of need will surely show himself mighty once again in ur own life.
Please wait on the Lord if u can and use this bible passages as well.
My mum gave them to me when i was waiting on the Lord for mine and i'm more than happy to share them with you.
1) Ps 124: 1-8 (stand on verse 8)
2) Matt 7: 7-8
3)Jeremiah 1:19
4)II corinth 12:9
5) Ps 37:4-5
6) Ps 4:1
7) Ps 34:19
8) Phil 4:6
Dont forget to give thanks
9)Ps 34:1
10)Isaiah 25:1

I pray in the Name of Jesus that is greater than any other name,that every tongue that rises up against u will b condemned.
I speak the favor of God concerning ur life and concerning this issue, u will find favor not only in the sight of God but also in the sight of man.
The Lord God almighty who is ur srenghth and ur shield and ur ever present help in time of need, will hear ur cry and he will answer out of his holy hill.
He will not send u an angel, he will come himself and visit ur situation personally.
My God who is able to do exceeding, abundantly, more than we can ever ask or think, will do just that for you.
He will turn your captivity around according to his word in Ps 126:1, and you will be like they dreamed.
Has he not said it, will he not do it.
His word concernig your life and ur future will not retun to him void until it has accomplished that which he has purposed it to do.
I pray the peace of God that passeth all understanding upon this situation and i trust and i believe that he has done it already and it is settled.

Don't worry, smile, and stay strong. God is on the throne and he is working it all out 4 ur own good.
Sorry 4 taking up too much space!

JJ said...

As i'm all too familiar with 'immigration matter' myself, you'll definitely be in my prayers tonight. Stay strong it'll be fine, He wouldn't bring you this far to back down now.
As per the plaigarism accussation, that person must be smoking some detergent because the phrase "...all 434 pages of it" is a fact and i don't see how many ways you can express it other than that. Pls pay them no mind.

Adaure said...

Thank you for these wonderful prayers

@T... WOW!!!those verses were really powerful and spoke to my situation. I am not very good with knowing what verses to pray with but I meditated with these. Thanks so much for sharing them with me.

By the way, 'Immigration Matter' is code language o. So don't worry about Addy being deported, I am very legal.

Adaure, all will be well in Jesus mighty name.

Whatever the problem, it is never to big for the Lord to solve.
I know that you are a strong woman and you know God does not send what we cannot handle our way.
He knows that it will be well and no matter the result of this situaton....all will go according to his wonderful life plans for you, in Jesus name AMEN..
Please continue to rely on the Lord for strenght and guidance.

Please along with the other suggested passages and verses read Proverbs 3. It talks about trusting in the Lord! Chapter 5 says 'Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not depend on your understanding'
He will handle it for you.

Take care girl and hola anytime.
God Bless.

Adaure, the INS misplaced my application to remove the condition on my green card and I want to be home in december so I totally understand where you are coming from. I will pray for you, keep this anonymous sister in yours too. When God is in control, there is no problem. Take your issues to him, and LEAVE it with him.

Amen and Amen to your prayers.

what exactly is the nature of this immigration matter? r u not a citizen or r u trying to get ur relatives hooked up? or did ur passport get stolen/expired? give a general scope so that ppl can let u know wot u can do practically- best wishes?

Nneka's World said...

All will be well Addy,
You are in my prayers
AMEN

didi said...

i wish u wot u wish yourself.may God answer ur prayers

mide said...

The Lord will make a way where there seem to be no way in Jesus Name. Amen

Adaure said...

Yes it will be well my people. I am awaiting word from the person God will use in this difficult situation. I should know by this afternoon what the deal will be. Again it is not really an 'immigration matter'...that is just the 'code' for the situation as I stated before, but it is still ok to pray for an immigration matter for the future.
Anyways God's plan will take place. Let me drag myself to work, even though I really don't feel like it.

Tutsy said...

Wish you the best on this one -as for the plagiarising - if the person has to hide behind anonymous then that in itself says a lot.

On another note we are holding the 1st Carnival of African Women and I am hoping you will be able and willing to participate - the details are over at
