There was no apparent reason to be grateful to God; however I had to think deep and eventually found the following reasons for my midnight praises:
***There was perfect health in my family; [b]no medical emergencies [/b]that will necessitate going about to borrow money from friends/family.
***We lived in a very large, well furnished 3-bedroom apartment; such that any one visiting us could never imagine the hard times we were going through.
***That God kept our secret that we were in extreme lack. These were the 3 major reasons for my midnight praises; there was no other thing to be grateful for.

STEP 2:
I continued to give out of the little I had. There was a time all the money on me was four hundred and twenty naira; a neighbor approached me that the family had not eaten for days, and needed four hundred naira only to buy a paint of garri to feed the family. I released that money and was left with only 20 naira. I did it willingly, grateful to God that inspite of my lack, I was still able to meet someone else's needs. There was a time also after buying small food stuff, I divided it into 2 and gave an extremely needy person I knew. These 2 instances are few out of several other instances I gave to other people in need. I guess their heartfelt prayers after receiving, also worked for me one way or another.

Step 3:
I changed my prayer points. I am an addicted tither; however during this time, I could not pay any tithe (for over 1 year) 'cos no money was coming in, and the little coming in was not even enough to feed on. My only prayer became, "God bless me, so that I can start paying my tithe again". Bless me, so that I can give towards the development of the church again; Bless me, so I can be a blessing to others again. Nothing else mattered. I had seen it all. The worst had happened. I forgot about myself, my needs, and started focusing on the needs of the kingdom. Eventually, I discovered that the more I sought God, the more money looked for me. I didn't have to look for money. Money is now the least of my problems (Matt 6:31-33.."[b]Seek ye first the kingdom of God"...) Indeed, other things were added unto me.

Step 4:
I started experiencing spiritual attacks and victories in my dream. There was a resistance from the devil to prevent me from being delivered out of penury (Matt 11:12). He tried all sort of terrible things, but I always overcame in the dream, and so I wake up to pray and enforce my victory. 1Jn 4:4. The devil is truly a toothless bulldog. He can't attack any true child of God; however, he devises different means to instil FEAR, without which he has no access, except you allow him through fear.

I'll find time to continue
the bolded is d only truth and b only Principle of God dt pple don’t know. Proverb 29:13 it must come from d heart. He knows your heart if truly u are seeking Him. i applied d one n only principle of God and it worked just like Law of Gravity will always work.
pple are not applying ds principle.
i am glad u found ds big secret of God and it worked for you

I want to conclude with this post 'cos no time to be going back and forth on NL.

Step 6: I prayed the word of God. I remember my father telling me, while growing up that I must make the Bible my friend in order to fulfil my destiny. Hence I changed strategy such that whenever I study the word, the Holy Spirit gave me insight to prayer points to apply personally and pray from that scripture, which I always prayed immediately like a wounded lion 'cos I was desperate for a change. For instance, once I read the experience of the Israelites where they were stranded whilst being faced with the red sea, God commanded Moses on what to do and to MOVE FORWARD; My prayer point became: The Lord has commanded me to move forward, therefore, I am moving forward in life, no more stagnation.. Hebrews 4:12 has the reason why the word of God always works in any situation.

Step 7: Sacrificial giving towards the work of God. I have too many instances to even describe any. I read an article that any money which is not enough to meet my needs is a SEED that should be sown; while any money that is sufficient to meet my needs is a BREAD that I can eat and use for myself. This became my guiding principle and so, I sowed a lot of seeds as sacrificial giving. 2Cor 9:10. I didn't eat my seed, and also didn't give my bread. As expected, when seeds are sown, there is harvest at the appropriate time. No harvest without sowing of seeds 'cos God is not a magician. He is a rewarder.

Step 8: Honoring God in the way I lived my life. It is God that giveth the power to get wealth (not mere riches); if you want him to honor you with wealth, Honor him first. (1Sam 2:30). Think of personal ways you can honor God in your own life, and start doing those things. He will reciprocate. Also be sensitive to any specific thing He requires you to do, and do it. I remember honoring God with something I had reserved to use for myself; It was a sacrifice and my prayer was: "Father, because I have honored you with this, special honor, reserved for special people, let it begin to locate me. It indeed located me because the job I got is reserved for special people and should have taken me not less than 20 years of experience in my career. He gave me what I was not qualified to get, without knowing anybody or having any connection.

Step 9: Spend time praying in the Spirit. The wisdom and power to get kingdom wealth comes through the Holy Spirit. Zech 4:6

Step 10: I started thanking God for what He was about to do in my life; I had unwavering faith that He will change my story 'cos all my focus was on how to please him. I forgot about my needs, and I know He is faithful to fulfil the promises in the scripture for me. This became my reason for the midnight praises. I had deep joy and was expectant of what He would do, even though I wasn't experiencing changes physically, I never stopped thanking Him for what I believed He was capable of doing in my life, especially after he gave me the scripture: 1Cor 10:13.

Step 11: Take Action 'cos faith without works is dead.
I applied for a job in Jan 2018, 3 weeks later, I received a regret mail that I was not selected for test; one month later, I received another mail apologizing for the previous error and inviting me for test. One month later, invitation for interview; on my way to the interview, the Holy Spirit started telling me the questions that will be asked, to which I started preparing answers for. Hence I was able to answer the questions effortlessly, as if I had the experience, for a job I was not qualified for. God gave me the power to get wealth- I was the only one selected out of over 1 thousand applicants, without any connection whatsoever. The position was created for the first time in the history of that organization, after 58 years in existence. The position was created 'cos God wanted to set me up for greatness. This is the kind of kingdom wealth I'm encouraging you to seek after, not the inferior one that man made books will deliver to you.

In conclusion, I sought God, (not any pastor) with all my heart, and I found him as He promised in His word.

God is no respecter of persons; what worked for me will work for you if you've given your life to Christ.

I hope to read your testimony soon

Gracias!

In the year 2017, I PRAYED, fasted, etc like I've never done before. I was determined to get out of that financial quagmire. However, there was no observable difference in the situation. Consequently, my new year resolution for the year 2018 was to change strategy and not expend energy in praying, fasting, etc like I did in 2017. I still engaged in praying/fasting in 2018, but not as intensively as I did in 2017. 3 months into the year 2018, God started moving, and before the end of that same year, my story changed forever. God MOVED.

The book: "Move that mountain", can't remember the name of the author (Nigerian) opened my eyes to certain realities which propelled me to take certain steps.

1. I stopped focusing on the challenges and started focusing on God. This was after I came to the realization that for every challenge, there is a glory/huge blessing God wants to release. The devil knows this and doesn't want the glory revealed; hence he prefers for us to focus on the problems; cos the more we fix our eyes on what's going on around us, the more blinded we are from the unlimited possibilities from above.

2. I came to the realization that dwelling on the problems means that I focus less on the mightiness of God; while focusing more on what the devil is capable of doing in my life. Worrying about the challenges meant that I didn't trust that God could solve the problems and I was subconsciously ascribing more power to the devil because I was focusing on the challenges.

3. I realized that because the devil has been, and is always an enemy of a Christian home, his plan was to frustrate me out of my husband's house, using lack as a weapon.

4. I realized that no one likes to stay wherever his enemy is being praised; no one likes to be ignored; no one likes to be treated as if he doesn't exist. Consequently, I started ignoring the devil by not worrying about my problems again, I started giving QUALITY praises to an enemy of the devil-God. I made it a sacrificial praise, such that my midnight prayers were replaced with midnight praises. I stopped midnight prayers. I started engaging in midnight praises.

5. I started having spiritual encounters where I was shown the source(s) of the challenges, including how to get out of it.

I'll find time to continue my piece tomorrow. However, I hope you've given your life to Christ. The approach I took can only work for those who are truly born-again, not just church goers. Because I remember having a dream where I was called My first name, and JESUS CHRIST was pronounced as my surname; after which I was given my benefit as His HEIR in that dream. This was what manifested in a series of life changing events in the physical realm.

I realized that the spiritual controls the physical. But more importantly, I can alter what happens in the spiritual by my physical activities. Once I alter the spiritual in this way, then this spiritual (that I have programmed) will manifest physically. Therefore, the physical steps I took worked in altering the spiritual atmosphere to work in my favour, which eventually translated in the physical.

STEP 1: Aggressive, Quality, Deep, Heart-felt midnight praises and dance to God. I started doing this for 20 minutes, later I progressed to 30 minutes, then 45 minutes, then 1 hour, etc. The more I engaged in it, the more I was able to spend more time in it.

I'll continue much later. Thanks
Honestly, I missed this earlier.
Wow! Thanks so much for this.
Am definitely taking the steps.
Thank you

Great steps. Thanks dear.
God will continue to bless you greatly, Amen!

Wonderful testimony.

Am born again though my financial stagnation is discouraging me, now I know it's for a reason.
I need to fully surrender all to Him and do as you have said. My husband actually told me some days ago we should give our lives all over to God then this has confirmed this what God truly desires. And you have given me the encouragement to do so.

Thanks so much for taking your time to explain these steps. I really appreciate them.

You are a blessing to nations.

Yes, I will give my testimony soon.

Don't sow anything yet. What work for A might not work for B in this sense. What you need to be praying for now is Mercy. Just spend 3 midnights praying and singing praises unto God. Ask the holy spirit to join you and give you directions.

Mercy will overshadow sowing anyday. When mercy comes. It holds grace along. I don't sow that much but lack is not in my dictionary. Op it's better since you guys are two. Just sacrifice part of your sleep for midnight sessions with your creator. For the first night anoint yourself and sing praises. Praise and worship marathon that night. Don't do much prayer for that night. The next night sing praises but pray more. The third night just start giving thanks.
