Child of God may Almighty God give you wisdom to do the right thing at right time always in Jesus name.
As you step out

Blessing be upon you.

Today is a dawn of blessings.Your cup will run over with good tidings.
Whether it’s convenient or not as long as the sun remains light for day.in blessings you shall be blessed.
In favor I pray you into favour.

i pray for you as Joseph got a great job in a strange land.let mercy open a door of gainful employment for you.any curse projected into the sun to darken the glory of your day, let the sun reject bewitchment for your sake.

The brothers of Joseph mocked him and said here comes the dreamer let’s kill him.

i stand firm on the word of God and I declare every announcement of evil into your day to terminate good dreams I command their voices and their declaration to swallow them all.

As no one born of a woman can naturally stare into the sun for long any group of people staring into your glory for evil today after the order of babel , let confusion set into their mist, in the name of Jesus.

Healing,restoration,marital breakthrough ,promotion,divine announcement,
Whatever your request may be receive the touch of Jehovah God almighty in Jesus name amen .
You are blessed.glory to God.
