Today's bible teaching:His enemies will I clothe with shame: but upon himself shall his crown flourish.

A Prayer for Blessing on the Sanctuary

Psalms 132 


A Song of degrees. Lord, remember David, and all his afflictions: 2  How he sware unto the Lord, and vowed unto the mighty God of Jacob; 3  Surely I will not come into the tabernacle of my house, nor go up into my bed; 4  I will not give sleep to mine eyes, or slumber to mine eyelids, 5  Until I find out a place for the Lord, an habitation [1] for the mighty God of Jacob. 6  Lo, we heard of it at Ephratah: we found it in the fields of the wood. 7  We will go into his tabernacles: we will worship at his footstool. 8  Arise, O Lord, into thy rest; thou, and the ark of thy strength. 9  Let thy priests be clothed with righteousness; and let thy saints shout for joy. 10  For thy servant David's sake turn not away the face of thine anointed.

11  The Lord hath sworn in truth unto David; he will not turn from it; Of the fruit of thy body [2] will I set upon thy throne. 12  If thy children will keep my covenant and my testimony that I shall teach them, their children shall also sit upon thy throne for evermore. 13  For the Lord hath chosen Zion; he hath desired it for his habitation. 14  This is my rest for ever: here will I dwell; for I have desired it. 15  I will abundantly [3] bless her provision: I will satisfy her poor with bread. 16  I will also clothe her priests with salvation: and her saints shall shout aloud for joy. 17  There will I make the horn of David to bud: I have ordained a lamp [4] for mine anointed. 18  His enemies will I clothe with shame: but upon himself shall his crown flourish.

Sierra Leone Mudslides:Bishop Oyedepo visits Sierra Leone, prays for Sierra Leone turn around,donates foodstuffs to victims(PHOTOS)

    Following the devastations caused by flooding and mudslides on the outskirts of Freetown at the beginning of this week, President Ernest Bai Koroma continues to receive not only condolence messages but also high powered delegations from countries across the sub-region and beyond.

   This morning, Friday 18 August, the president received at State House a high level delegation led by Bishop David Oyedepo of World Mission Agency commonly called Winner’s Chapel. According to Bishop Oyedepo, the visit was to console and pray for Sierra Leone following Monday’s tragedy. He prayed that such predicament would not repeat itself in the nation and that there would be a turn around.

   For victims of the flooding and mudslides, Bishop Oyedepo pledged assistance of food items and general provisions, including 250 bags of rice, 250 liters of vegetable oil, 250 bags of onions, 250 blankets, clothing, washing soap among others.

   President Koroma thanked the Bishop for his quick response, describing the visit as a source of great hope. He lamented about the incident, narrating that a particular church was observing all-night prayers when the unimaginable and unprecedented tragedy occurred, and consequently claimed hundreds of lives. He also bemoaned the story of six innocent children who went to study in the home of one of their brightest colleagues, and the young man who was due to get married today, saying that they all had their plans for the next day but were swept away from their sleep onto untimely deaths.

  The president pointed out that Sierra Leone’s economy was apparently doing well when Ebola struck and reversed every gain. Even though the country is faced with another huge challenge in the aftermath of a successful recovery process, he however expressed hope that there is light at the end of the tunnel.
