Since I was young, my life was a living hell because of my father and his drinking and smoking habits. He would keep us up all night because he was quarrelling and drunk. I developed a hatred for him. In fact he was also very abusive to my mother as well. One day he even fought with my mother and I attacked him. I felt so bad having to fight my father in order to defend my mother. I used to pray and ask God to stop this vicious cycle in my life. I even questioned whether there was a God and why he didn’t put an end to my suffering.
I used to see the program of the church and turn off the television. I think I got fed up of seeing it over and over. One Sunday my friend invited me to the church so I decided to accept the invitation. When I went to the service a pastor came to speak to me. He prayed and advised me to do a chain of prayer and to be faithful. I was indeed consistent in my chain of prayer as I prayed and asked God to bring peace in my home and to change my life completely.
A little while after the Campaign Of Israel came around. I listened as the pastor spoke about giving your life completely to God. I thought a lot about my request to God. At first I thought about asking for money, house, car etc. Then I thought to myself, no its better I ask for peace in my home and to change the story of my family. When I approached the altar this was my prayer to God.
Four months later my mother came to the church, soon after my two sisters and even my father. My father no longer fights with us. We no longer have sleepless nights. There is peace in my family.
My advice to anyone out there is to use your faith completely to make that change and with God everything is possible. What God has done for me he can do for anyone else.
