I would have made this post on the 4th of July, but I figured that you were still eating your 4th July, Turkey and Meat. And I was waiting for the celebration to wane so that you don’t see a mail from me, and say, doesn’t brother Pius Knows that today is 4th July? But I forgive you. You ate your turkey and did all celebrations without remembering your brother, Pius.

Well, the above is for all those brothers and sisters in America. Happy Independence once. Now to the rest of us, I hope you are having a great 2nd half of the year. No. 7 represents perfection. I pray that God perfects all that concerns you for the remaining part of the year.

Now to the central focus of this email? Have you prayed? Follow me closely I have something to tell you. I was reading my Bible, and the Lord opened my eyes to something I hadn’t considered. There was a plan in the Land of Shusan to kill all the Jews. But Haman couldn’t execute that plan alone. He needed the consent of King Ahasuerus for that to work. And you know what Haman did? He did so much incantation and witchcraft for 12 months, every day they cast lots. What was Haman doing? He was looking for favour and a way to charm the King. It seemed to me that Haman understood the fact that the heart of Kings needs to be with you before you can achieve anything. So He began his subtle plot. And did so much witchcraft so that when he appears before the King, his request would be granted. Tell me, what is ten thousand pieces of Silver worth to a king who controls the entire wealth of the nation? It wasn’t the money. It was the charm that Haman did that was working on the King.

The Certainty of God’s Promises

Esther 3:7

In the first month, that is, the month Nisan, in the twelfth year of king Ahasuerus, they cast Pur, that is, the lot, before Haman from day to day, and from month to month, to the twelfth month, that is, the month Adar.

Haman didn’t say anything to the King. At the end of the Lots which they cast, he opened his mouth and spoke to the King. Of course, the King couldn’t say NO to Haman!

Esther 3:8-9

And Haman said unto king Ahasuerus, There is a certain people scattered abroad and dispersed among the people in all the provinces of thy kingdom; and their laws are diverse from all people; neither keep they the king’s laws: therefore it is not for the king’s profit to suffer them.

9 If it please the king, let it be written that they may be destroyed: and I will pay ten thousand talents of silver to the hands of those that have the charge of the business, to bring it into the king’s treasuries.

Esther was a highly spiritual woman! Although she was in the palace, she hasn’t forgotten the days she had fasted. So when the time came and knowing that Haman wasn’t an ordinary man, she decided to take it from the realm of the spirit and battle it out from there. She told her Uncle, Mordecai:

Esther 4:16

Go, gather together all the Jews that are present in Shushan, and fast ye for me, and neither eat nor drink three days, night or day: I also and my maidens will fast likewise; and so will I go in unto the king, which is not according to the law: and if I perish, I perish.

So the moment she fasted, the grip of all the charm Haman did on the King broke. She went before the King and found favour. And then prevented a genocide that would have happened.

Friends, before you do that business, submit a business proposal, make that presentation, that endeavour, that Job interview and several other things. Have you prayed? There are several Haman that would come on that day that had made incantation, voodoo to swing the minds of those who will be approving whatever you want to do. And if you came to that place empty, you would be surprised. May that never be your portion in the name of Jesus? Take nothing for granted. The children of the devil and all his agents aren’t taking anything for granted. Why should you?


Job 5:12

He disappointeth the devices of the crafty, so that their hands cannot perform their enterprise.

1 John 5:14-15

Isaiah 7:7

Thus saith the Lord God, It shall not stand, neither shall it come to pass.


Lord, I make demands for the grace, and strength to always be serious with my prayer altar in the name of Jesus.

Holy Father, release upon my life at this moment the spirit of prayer and intercession in the name of Jesus.

Gracious Father, any charm, witchcraft, voodoo, and incantation that has been made towards the works of my hand, or anything that relates to me, in the name of Jesus I annul them

Father, every Haman that is standing in my way, let the fire of the Holy Ghost be released on him now in the name of Jesus.
