Today, I Pray…

Dear God,

Thank you for the gift of being born female in a male dominated world. Thank you for the gift of my hair, eyes, lips, skin, curves, ability to multitask and be a fertile land for growth. Thank you for my beauty that’s fully backed up with brains…

Thank you for the gift of virginity and the struggles we have to go through as women in preserving, struggling to keep and belong, crying when all we desire is pleasure and suppressing all the mushiness that catalyzes our wetness… Thank you for the seal you placed on the door of every woman and thank you still for the pains we have to go through before, during and after the process of losing our virginity… Thank you for those who still don’t have the courage to endure the pain and let go and for those who are campaigning to wait till marriage and for those shouting ‘purity’ everywhere, but who are secretly watching porn, sexting, masturbating or enjoying the pleasures in kisses, romance and foreplay…

Thank you for everyone who had a premarital affair and ended up with infections, unwanted pregnancies, mental, physical, emotional and psychological changes… Thank you for those who enjoyed the pleasure and still came out ‘okay’… Thank you for the ones who didn’t have the courage to keep the pregnancies, but had the option to abort and live with the pain and guilt forever. Thank you for those who kept the pregnancies and had to put a stop to their lives, get shamed and all just to keep the child who is walking beautifully and handsomely, shouting ‘mummy’ as they go…

Thank you for those of us who are in love with someone, but are not loved back the way we want, buh have someone else who is head over heels in love with us, buh we care less about… Thank you for those of us who are single and searching, but can’t find and haven’t been found either and cry secret tears, endure the pain and comfort ourselves for what we don’t know if it is a misfortune or blessing… Thank you still for those who have been found and have options in men to choose from…

Thank you for those of us who desire deeply the warmth and touch of a man, but can’t go out and ask for it and for some of us who feel same way and have the nerve to reach out regardless of how he’ll see us… Thank you for some of us who want to be married, buh are scared of marriage itself and for those of us who just can’t wait to be married and are so excited about it…

Thank for those of us who are married without kids and others with kids of a particular gender and some with kids from both sexes… Thank you for those of us who have marital pains we want to share and talk about, buh dunno who to talk to or what to say and for those who are happy and fulfilled with stories to share too… Thank you for those of us who are loyal and faithful in marriage and some of us who can’t be because of this or that…

Thank you for those of us who have been broken by men, taken advantage of, used and dumped, lived in and endured toxicity, raped, abused and have come out stronger with healing in our heart, but can never forget the experience… Thank you for those too who haven’t healed from this pain and don’t know how to or don’t want to heal either…

Thank you for those women doing this and that, experiencing this and that with virginity issues, esteem issues, daddy issues, relationship issues, marriage issues, rape, abortion, single parent issues, gender inequality issues, body shaming and just all the different dimensions of women issues…

And today I pray, for every born, yet to be born and living girl, lady and woman out there- that Daddy you preserve your own, protect her, give her reasons to smile each day, reasons to know that she is still valued, appreciated, the light of the world, the salt of the earth, a city on a hill that cannot be hid, a royal priesthood, a peculiar people, the apple of your eyes and beautiful. Today, I pray that you comfort her, give her people to be there for her, bless her and give her a shoulder to lean on, a platform to be herself regardless of her baggage and insecurities. Today, I pray that you bless her, give her good health and grant the desires of her heart. Today, I pray that you engrace and encompass her with your goodness and peace which passeth all things… Today, I pray that as she prays, you hear her and be her Father, Friend, Boyfriend, Husband, Shuga Daddy, Role Model, Mentor, Mother, Sister and all… In Jesus most precious name I pray…. Amen!☺️
