Dear Heavenly Father,
I thank you for waking me up this morning. I give You praise for being the head of my life. Thank you for covering me with Your grace and tender mercies. I thank You for making me whole and giving me a sound mind. No one could ever grant me the covering and divine protection that I need to make it through this journey. Thank You for covering my children and everyone coming through my bloodline. Lord, continue to walk with me. I need You in my life. You are my everything. Penetrate my soul. Infuse the Holy Spirit throughout every fiber of my being. Father, on my weak days, give me strength. My strong days allow me to remain humble. Lord, destroy every plot and attempts the enemy has with my name on it and the names of everyone in my bloodline. Lord, You are a God of miracles; move through my life showing Your face. Lord, I desire to please You. I repent for anything that doesn't match my desire to please you. In Jesus' name, I pray, Amen.
1 John 5:14-15
14 This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.
2 Chronicles 7:14
14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
27 You will pray to him, and he will hear you, and you will fulfill your vows.
Celebrating Women/ Facts
As a young girl of 11, the Pakistani student wrote an anonymous diary about what life was like under the rule of an extreme group called the Taliban in north-west Pakistan.
In the diary, she talked about how she wanted to stay in education and about how girls should be able to go to school. The Taliban wanted to ban girls' education. Lots of people read the diary all over the world and she became well-known for fighting for her right to an education.
But the Taliban didn't like this. Because of what she said in her diary, in October 2012, she was shot by their soldiers - but she survived the attack.
The world was appalled by what happened to her and Malala quickly won the support of millions more people.
At 14, she became the youngest person ever to win the Nobel Peace Prize. When she received it, she joked that she was probably the first winner who still fought with her younger brothers!
She has gone on to win more awards, and continues to campaign for girls' rights all over the world and inspire many generations.
