Tinsel star, Damilola Adegbite, who was married but divorced from Ghanaian movie star, Chris Attoh, has a word for you as you prepare to enter the New Year today.
The Nollywood actress, who is also a mum of one, encouraged persistent prayers as we are ushered into 2019.
Confessing to have wept at some point in her life in 2018, she gave a word on disturbing God with prayers.
Damilola, whose former husband is now married to another woman in Ghana wrote:
“I thought to share my biggest testimony of 2018 with someone somewhere who has lost hope.
I was fighting a serious battle for over a year. A battle I knew I could never ever have won by power nor by might. So instead, I decided to pray HARD about it. Oh dear, I disturbed God on this matter. I would sing, dance, cry, praise,worship; day and night.
A whole year passed and nothing happened. But I refused to give up.
On the 17th of May (a day before my birthday), I went to a mid week service. I dragged myself to church that day. I was overwhelmed. I had no strength left in me. My head kept telling me to give up, but my heart and spirit said NO
There was an altar call in church that day for people who desperately needed God to show up for them. I joined about a hundred other people. I tried to control my emotions. A few tears escaped and I would quickly wipe them away but at some point, I let go. I showed my father, how much pain I was in. For those few minutes, I couldn’t care less which blogger, friend or foe was watching. Damilola Adegbite?! Crying like a baby in church? Me I was ready for the jist to be everywhere by the next day, but I was even more ready to risk it all for a breakthrough. Little did I know, that my day had come.
After the prayers, we got up. My face was a mess so I bent my head and was walking back to my seat. I had taken a few steps when someone touched my shoulder so gently. I turned around and it was my pastor’s wife. Prior to this, I had NEVER met her. She looked at me so kindly and pulled me into her arms, right there in front of the whole church. That was it, I burst into tears like a baby. Before I could even figure out what was happening, I was taken into the pastor’s office and asked to wait to see my pastor and his wife after service. Small me!! To cut the long story short, hmmm, words can never explain. God gave me a MASSIVE ARMY. Spiritual, financial, emotional, every arsenal that I could ever need to fight and win this battle.
Here’s to you my friend. Keep pushing! Don’t loose hope! Refuse to be intimidated! If your hopes and dreams didn’t manifest in 2018, DO NOT GIVE UP! Your time is almost here. Keep holding on ❤️
