Why Beyoncé never 'genuinely liked Kim Kardashian'

beyonce-kim-main

Just a week ago it emerged that Jay Z 'cannot stand' Kanye West . And now it appears their wives aren't that fond of each other either.

The feud between the rappers stems back to Beyoncé 's dislike of Kim Kardashian West - and that's why Blue and North have never had a play date, according to Page Six.

A source close to the Kardashians told the website: "Beyoncé has never genuinely liked Kim.

"She’s mostly tolerated her because of their husbands’ friendship and [their] mutual friends, like Jennifer Lopez.

"She is always a little icy to Kim. The last time they hung out, the minute Beyoncé could leave the conversation, she did. They always have lots of awkward pauses."

The source claims that proof of the feud can be found as far back as 2014, when Queen Bey and Jay Z were invited to Kim and Kanye's wedding but didn't show up.

The power couple apparently liked 'the old Kanye' before Kim, and give him stick whenever he appears on Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

Sex tape of beauty queen leaked to the internet(Video)

                  Chidinma Okeke denied being the one in the video but a new video shows otherwise

Just when we thought we have seen the end of this ridiculous, embarrassing show involving the crowned winner of Miss Anambra 2015 competition, Chidinma Okeke, pointers are that we are not yet done.

Some days ago, we posted a video showing the beauty queen engaged in lesbian acts with one of her close friends, a lady known as ‘Ada’. Chidinma was shown in the video using a cucumber to penetrate herself  before Ada came over to help out by smooching and caressing her vagina while she continued the ‘cucumber action’. Ada is said to be a beauty queen too, she was the 3rd runner up of the Queen of Democracy 2014 and she also doubles as Chidinma’s personal assistant.

After the video had been trending online for a while, Chidinma came out to deny she is the one in the video. She insisted it was photoshopped and her face was super-imposed into the existing pictures. She wrote:
My attention has been drawn to a concocted photograph/ video being circulated in the social media wherein my face was superimposed on an existing picture of persons engaging amorous conduct through the art of photo shopping.This act is perpetrated by hodlums who are out to blackmail me or tarnish my image and promising career by presenting me in bad light. I wish to say that the said image is certainly not mine by any stretch of imagination.    
                                          
I am a highly responsible person who was brought up in a family with impeccable reputation. I can therefore not subscribe to such act how much more engage in same . Meanwhile I have referred the matter to my lawyer for possible prosecution of the culprits and civil claim. Please be advised to discountenance the said photograph/ video and regard it as handiworks of detractors. Thank you. Okeke Chidinma”

But lots of her followers won’t have any of it as they think she was playing on their intelligence. Well, the blackmailer is unknown yet and the reasons behind him/her releasing the very private video is not known yet. Olofofos claim that the blackmailer is someone from Chidinma’s close circle of friends. And the blackmailer has released the part 2 of the video which is very clear, shows the face of the beauty queen and her PA. The video is about 59seconds long.

Give President Buhari Time To Implement Policies - IYC tells Militants

Tags
PMB and Militants
The umbrella body of Ijaw youths, Ijaw Youth Council Worldwide, has asked militants operating in the Niger Delta area to embrace peace and allow President Muhammadu Buhari to implement his developmental projects in the region.

The IYC also expressed delight at the recent letter the President sent to the National Assembly seeking increased funding for the Presidential amnesty programme.

The President, IYC, Mr. Udengs Eradiri, who spoke in Yenagoa on Wednesday, said the request for additional funds for the PAP portrayed Buhari as a listening President.

He observed that although Buhari’s action came later than expected, it (the action) would go a long way in calming frayed nerves in the region.

Eradiri said that Buhari’s action was in tandem with the position of the IYC and urged the President to show similar commitment to the institutions created to develop the Niger Delta region such as the Ministry of the Niger Delta Affairs and the Niger Delta Development Commission.

While asking militants to give Buhari a chance, he said, “Yes, the militants should give the government a chance. But the government needs to be proactive and not falling into this stereotype attitude.

“The President may be doing the right thing but when there is delay, his body language may be misinterpreted. For instance, if this current step of the President had come earlier, l don’t see any sane agitator going against him.

“The President has taken an action. But did we have to lose all these lives, economy and all the constraints and emotional crisis before such a letter should be transmitted? Sometimes, when you do something late, it has repercussions. If the actions Mr. President is taking now had been taken earlier, we wouldn’t have got to this point where the economy will be lying prostrate. We need more proactive steps from the President.”

Eradiri also urged the President to ensure discipline in the utilisation of the allocated funds and prudent management by people who understood the problems in the region.

He said, “We want to also state that while approving funds for institutions like this, the anti-corruption drive must be activated to ensure that the institutions live up to their expectations to ensure that funds are not diverted.

“Those in the position to manage the amnesty office and other institutions addressing the issues of the region must be people who have knowledge of the issues. If he doesn’t have the right people to address the issues, even the funding will be misplaced.”

PATHETIC: Kevin Gates sentenced to 180 days in Jail for kicking fan in the chest

                                    Kevin Gates sentenced to 180 days in Jail for kicking fan in the chest

Rapper Kevin Gates has been sentenced to 180 days in jail after being found guilty of kicking a female fan in the chest in August 2015. The incident which took place at Rumours Nightclub in Lakeland Florida went viral after a fan shared the video online.

In the video, Gates kicked 19 year old fan, Mranda Dixon in the chest while he was on stage.

Gates initially argued his innocence claiming that the girl kept pulling on his shorts as he performed on stage. Adding that he did it in self defense. He used the Florida's "Stand Your Ground" law in attempt to have the charges dropped. "I kicked them, I wanted them off me," he said during the previous hearing.

The judge sentenced Gates to 180 days in Polk County jail, with credit for any time served, and fines and court costs. He was convicted by a jury of six women after just two hours of deliberation.

Dixon admitted to having tugged on Gates' pants during the concert at Rumor's Nite Club on Aug. 28, 2015. She said during the trial:

"I was trying to get his attention for my friend." Dixon's friend Teremal Redding testified as well, saying she had asked Dixon to grab Gates to get his attention "because he is a famous rapper."She said that the entire front row had been grabbing at Gates and that the first time Dixon grabbed him, he kept performing, but the second time he got violent, kicking her with force. She said she fell backwards and blacked out.

Gates' defense attorney Jose Baez cross-examined Redding about Dixon's injuries, pointing out that Redding had stayed for the rest of the show after her friend left following the incident.

President Buhari's Ministers accused by judges should resign, says Afenifere

Ministers accused by judges should resign, says Afenifere

The pan-Yoruba socio-cultural organisation, Afenifere, has said the ministers who have been accused by some judges of attempting to interfere with the course of justice in the past should resign.

Afenifere stated that any political office-holder involved in act of corruption should be made to face the wrath of the law.

This was contained in the communique issued at the end of the monthly meeting of the group held at the residence of Pa. Reuben Fasoranti in Akure, the Ondo State capital, on Tuesday.

The communique was read by the Publicity Secretary of the organisation, Mr. Yinka Odumakin.

The group said minsters, currently serving in the cabinet of President Muhammadu Buhari, who had been mentioned for allegedly attempting to pervert justice, should resign and face prosecution.

Afenifere added, “For the ministers, who have been mentioned for attempting to pervert the course of justice, we are asking that such ministers should step aside immediately as ministers of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“After that, they should go through the due process of the law to either ascertain their innocence or not; they should be punished according to the laws of the land. So, we cannot be saying only judges, who have been accused, should be investigated. Ministers too, who have been accused, should step aside and face prosecution.”

In the communique, Afenifere also frowned on the recent raids on the homes of some judges by the operatives of the Department of State Services, saying it was not the duty of the DSS to investigate corruption.

                                              Nigerian nanny arrested for killing eight-month-old baby who she force-fed two bottles of milk after the baby woke her up from a nap

A Nigerian woman Oluremi Oyindasola, 66, of Glenarden, Maryland working as a nanny has been arrested and has been charged with second-degree murder, first-degree child abuse resulting in death and other offenses after police said she force fed an eight-month-old baby girl who then later died.
Prince George's County Police said Wednesday, a home surveillance system recorded Oyindasola taking a nap when the crying infant, eight-month-old Enita Salubi, approached her in a toddler walker.

According to Police, Oyindasola unsuccessfully tried to feed the child, then when she got frustrated with the infant not wanting to eat, she 'proceeded to pour a large amount of white liquid directly inside the victim's mouth'.
Col. Harry Bond with Prince George's County Police said:

'She forcefully poured the two bottles of what looks to be milk down the baby's mouth, causing her to not be able to breathe, suffocating her, and eventually she died at the hospital.' The Police also released a press statement which read:

'On October 24th, at about 4.10pm, the baby had been rushed to a hospital after she became unresponsive at home. 'She was pronounced dead a short time later. An autopsy on Tuesday revealed the baby’s cause of death was asphyxiation. The manner of death was ruled a homicide. 'The preliminary investigation revealed the injuries to the baby occurred while in the sole care and custody of Oyindasola.' Oyindasol 'is in the custody of the Department of Corrections,' the release said. Oyindasola, is being held on $1million bond.

Multinational oil companies sack 3,000 oil workers

                                     Oil Workers on Strike
The travails of the the Nigerian economy as taken on a sad note as the Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG), on Wednesday, October 26 issued a 21-day ultimatum to the federal government, to prevent international oil companies operating in the country from sacking oil workers.

Mr Igwe Achese, the national president of NUPENG, gave the ultimatum at the end of a meeting of the central working committee of NUPENG, which held in Effurun, Uvwie local government area of Delta state.

Speaking at the meeting, Achese said many oil companies, including Chevron, ExxonMobil, Pan Ocean and Ground Petroleum, were leaving the country due to the recession, which has led to the sacking of about 3,000 oil workers.

The national president said that if the federal government fails to stop the ongoing mass sack in the oil sector, many more would lose their jobs.

Achese said: “It is painful to say as I address you, Chevron has wound up in the East and their offices closed.

A total of 1,500 workers were sacked without their entitlements and nobody is saying anything. As we speak, many companies have left and many others are winding up to go.

“Many oil companies are winding up, including ExxonMobil, Pan Ocean, Sapiem Ground Petroleum, and Hercules Offshore Nigeria Limited. About 3,000 workers have already been sacked by the various oil companies.

 “The Federal Government should act fast to avert further loss of jobs. There is too much redundancy in the oil industry, which needs urgent action from government to salvage the situation.”

Meanwhile, the headquarters of the Nigerian Customs Service (NCS), has been thrown into crisis over the leakage of a list containing the names and rank of some sacked senior and junior officers of the service.

Italy earthquakes: Strong tremors shake central region

                                People walk past rubble as rescue operations begin in Villa Sant'Antonio village, near Visso, Marche region, Italy, on 26 October 2016

Two strong earthquakes have hit central Italy, damaging buildings and sending scared residents into the streets.



A 5.5-magnitude quake struck at 19:10 local time (17:10 GMT) near Visso in Macerata province, officials said.

It was followed two hours later by a 6.1 magnitude tremor in the same area. Several people were hurt, but there were no immediate reports of deaths.

The quakes come two months after a powerful earthquake struck slightly to the south, killing 298 people.

The 6.2 magnitude quake, on 24 August, toppled buildings in Amatrice and villages in the mountainous region around the town, which is just 70km (45 miles) from Visso.

Wednesday's earthquakes were felt across central Italy, including in the capital, Rome, where buildings shook and doors and windows rattled.

"Tens" of people were reported hurt, but only four people suffered serious injuries, Italy's civil protection chief Fabrizio Curcio said.

The BBC's Katya Adler, in Rome, says that emergency services in the affected areas are still assessing the situation.

The second earthquake was considerably stronger than the first and numerous smaller aftershocks have occurred. One witness told Italian TV he saw part of a building collapse in front of him.

The town of Camerino is thought to have been badly damaged, although the full extent of damage will not become apparent until after the darkness lifts on Thursday morning.

One resident told the BBC: "Everyone is leaving Camerino by foot or car to seek safety. Two churches are destroyed and many houses [have] fallen."

In Campo, near Norcia in the Umbria region, the late 15th century San Salvatore church collapsed. It had been weakened by the earthquake in August.

There are also reports of downed power lines, damage to historic buildings and a landslide on a main road north of Rome.

"It was a very strong earthquake, apocalyptic," Marco Rinaldi, mayor of Ussita to the east of Visso, told Italy's Ansa news agency, referring to the second earthquake.

"People are screaming on the street and now we are without lights."

Schools in the region will remain closed on Thursday, our correspondent reports.

Prime Minister Matteo Renzi is on his way to Rome, local media (in Italian) say.

The first earthquake, 7km southwest of Visso, was relatively shallow, at a depth of 9km (nearly six miles).

The second, at 21:18 local time, was 2km northwest of Visso, at a depth of 10km.

These tremors were linked to the August earthquake, Italian officials said.

"Aftershocks can last for a long time, sometimes for months," AFP news agency quoted Mario Tozzi of Italy's National Institute of Geophysics as saying.

Policeman killed at Venezuela protests against President Maduro

Tags
                                         A mass of people take a highway during a protest against President Nicolas Maduro in Caracas, Venezuela, Wednesday, Oct. 26, 2016.
One policeman has been shot dead and dozens of people injured during anti-government protests in Venezuela.

At least 20 people have been injured and 80 detained nationwide, a local rights group has said.

Images circulated on social media of injured people on the ground. There are reports at least three were shot.

Hundreds of thousands of people took to the streets to protest against President Nicolas Maduro's government.

In Miranda state, a police officer died and two others were injured, the government said, blaming opposition activists.

Opposition leader Henrique Capriles is the governor of the state. Police there confirmed the death but did not blame protesters.

The mass demonstrations came after a recall referendum process - an attempt to remove Mr Maduro from power- was suspended.

Opposition activists had gathered about 1.8 million signatures petitioning for a recall referendum, 400,000 of which were validated by electoral authorities.

But the process was halted last week after officials said the signature collection process has been marred by fraud.

The country's opposition-led parliament voted on Tuesday to open a trial against Mr Maduro, whom MPs accuse of violating the constitution.

What's behind Venezuela's turmoil?

Protesters clashed with security forces across the country, particularly in the western cities of San Cristobal and Maracaibo.

"The referendum was our constitutional right, and they have denied it. What are they scared of?" said Grimaldi Lopez at the rally in the capital, Caracas.

Using the hashtag #TomadeVenezuela or "Venezuela takeover", people shared images of injured and bloodied protesters.

Alfredo Romero, leader of a human rights NGO, tweeted a picture of an injured 79-year-old woman, and said more than 20 people had been injured in the city of Merida alone.

Mr Maduro addressed a rival rally of supporters in Caracas, saying: "Let the people decide."

Opposition leaders have called for a mass walk-out on Friday. After the general strike, if the government continues to block the recall referendum process, the opposition threatened to march on the presidential palace - something it has not been allowed to do since a march there in 2002 started a short-lived coup against the former President, Hugo Chavez.

Mr Maduro, a former bus driver and union leader, is blamed by the opposition for Venezuela's dire economic situation. The oil-rich country is facing widespread food shortages and spiralling inflation.

In turn, he has accused the opposition of having links to foreign states, the US in particular, and of seeking to overthrow him to "lay their hands on Venezuela's oil riches".

Under Venezuela's constitution, a recall referendum can be held once a president has served half of his term in office and the requisite steps are met.

So far, the opposition has completed the first step of the process.

Shocking: Four arrested for claiming deceased’s N35.7m shares

                                              Four arrested for claiming deceased’s N35.7m shares
Four members of a syndicate of suspected fraudsters have been arrested on the Lagos Island by the police for allegedly forging documents to claim the ownership of shares worth N35.7m, which belonged to one late Amarvi Rowland.

The suspects are a stock broker, Olufemi Oyewunmi, a pastor in Ibadan, Oyo State; Benjamin Ogunlusi, an estate agent, Omoola Ayodeji, and one Olayinka Adisa.

The alleged fraud was reportedly coordinated by one Kola, Oyewunmi’s colleague, who is still at large.

It was learnt that Central Securities Clearing System Plc on Customs Street, Marina, Lagos, had handled the shares for Rowland.

Our correspondent gathered the firm had made a publication in a newspaper (not The PUNCH) sometime in September, where details of the deceased were published.

PUNCH Metro learnt that Ayodeji, in company with the pastor, on Friday, October 21, presented a forged national identity card bearing the deceased’s name to the firm.

Ayodeji was also said to have affixed his passport photograph on a biometric form containing Rowland’s details and tendered it to the company to facilitate the transfer of the sum into a bank account opened in his (Rowland’s) name.

It was gathered that after carrying out some verifications, the firm found out that Ayodeji was an impostor and alerted the Lion Building Police Division, leading to his and Ogunlusi’s arrest.

Ayodeji, who hails from Osun State, led policemen to a firm on the Lagos Island, where the stock broker and Olayinka were apprehended.

Ayodeji told the police that the pastor introduced him to the deal, with a promise that he would collect 10 per cent if they succeeded.

He said, “I met Pastor Benjamin (Ogunlusi) in Ibadan last year through one Tunde. I met the pastor again in August, 2016 and he said he had a deal for me. He introduced me to Kola. Thereafter, a bank account was opened in the name of the deceased.

“I was not told the amount involved, but I was promised 10 per cent as my share.”

Ogunlusi, who is an indigene of Ekiti State, said, “I got to know about the deal through one Samuel. I introduced Ayodeji to Kola. The business was discussed, but I don’t know how much it involved. Olayinka (Adisa) was also aware of the deal.”

However, Olayinka and Oyewunmi, denied involvement in the alleged fraud.

“Kola is a colleague. I don’t know Ayodeji. I met Olayinka through Kola. The police arrested both of us,” Oyewunmi said.

A police prosecutor, Inspector Philip Osijale, brought the suspects before a Tinubu Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday on four counts bordering on forgery and stealing.

The charges read in part, “That you, Omoola Ayodeji, Benjamin Ogunlusi, Adisa Olayinka, Olufemi Oyeromi and others now at large, on or before October 2016, on the Lagos Island, in the Lagos Magisterial District, did forge one biometric system application form and one Nigeria National Identity Card in the name of one Amarvi Rowland.”

The defendants, who appeared before magistrate M.B. Folami, pleaded not guilty.

TOPIC: The Product of Quality Character

SCRIPTURE: Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid…Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. Matthew 5:14-16

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Those who possess quality character magnetise favour.

Some years ago, my mother told us of a marriage custom that was in vogue in her youthful days. She said that when a man wanted to marry a lady, they would send the lady on a visit to the fiancé’s family house for character assessment. One of the tests was for her to sweep one of the rooms in the house. Unknown to her, they would scatter some money under the bed and at some hidden corners of the room.

In the course of sweeping, the lady would see the money, and if she was of a questionable character, she would steal the money thinking that they were lost and forgotten money or that God had favoured her. Afterwards, the news would go around the village that she was a thief and not marriageable. But if she was able to overcome the test, she would be married.

There are people who have closed their destinies on the frequency of character bankruptcy. But those who possess quality character magnetise favour.
Beloved, struggle for quality character and favour will struggle for you.

Remember this: Those who possess quality character magnetise favour.

ASSIGNMENT (S):
1.Make a personal assessment of your character and change where necessary.
2.Let the Word of God be your guide in every action you want to take.
3.Always dwell in the atmosphere of God’s Presence so you can assimilate His Nature.

PRAYER: O LORD, help me to walk in Your precept and make me a person of quality character. Grant me favour in Your sight and in the sight of men, LORD, in Jesus’ Name.

Don't Depend on Guesswork - Kenneth Copeland

TOPIC: Don't Depend on Guesswork 

Key Verse: Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not. -Jeremiah 33:3

MESSAGE:
Who do you turn to when you need help, when you need an important answer to an important question? Do you ask God first?

So many believers fail to do that! They'll stand around wringing their hands and talking to each other all day. They'll inquire of their pastor. They'll inquire of their friends. They'll inquire of their husband or wife. But do they inquire of God? No.

Don't make that mistake.

Instead, follow the example of King David. In 1 Chronicles 14, the Bible tells us he was about to face a battle with the very powerful Philistines who had all come out against him. The Philistine nation had been an enemy of Israel for years. David probably could have guessed that God would tell him to go to battle against them. But he didn't guess! He went to God and inquired, saying, "Shall I go up against the Philistines? and wilt thou deliver them into mine hand? And the Lord said unto him, Go up; for I will deliver them into thine hand" (verse 10).

Don't depend on guesswork. When you encounter a problem, seek the Lord through the Word and in prayer and ask Him what the solution is. No matter how much scripture you learn, no matter how fully you perceive who you are in Christ Jesus, you'll never outgrow your need to do that.

Go to the Lord and find out exactly what He wants you to do. Don't decide your course of action and then ask God to bless your plans. Go to Him and say, "Lord, what are Your plans?" His plans are already blessed. If you follow them, your victory is guaranteed.

TOPIC: Divinely Protected 

Bible Text: 2 Kings 6:8-12

Key Verse: "And one of his servants said, None, my lord, O king: but Elisha, the prophet that is in Israel, telleth the king of Israel the words that thou speakest in thy bedchamber" (2 Kings 6:12).

MESSAGE: 
Testimonies abound of God's divine intervention in the lives of people through the prayer ministration and words of prophesy by genuine men of God. Many have testified of how they were restrained from embarking on a journey or taking certain decisions through the utterances of these generals of God.

Some also recounted how they had got delivered from attacks after encountering these servants of God in their dreams, telling them to take certain steps. These are some of the numerous things the children of God enjoy by coming under His protective umbrella. In our text, a terrible evil had been determined by the king of Syria in the secret against the king of Israel and his people. But the all-seeing God is alive and would not allow His people to come to halt. He sent His prophet to "spill the bean", which caused a great confusion in the camp of Syria. The king of the enemy nation wondered why the king of Israel had refused to cross the line, a trap he had set for him, as planned in the secret.

He never knew that He that keepeth Israel never sleeps nor slumbers. Believers need not to fear. The angels of God are always on standby to deliver us. When danger is ahead and in front of us, the angels restrain us from going there; and when it is behind us, they propel us to move quickly forward. Surely, the rod of the wicked will never rest on the righteous.

Thought for the day: He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

Cost of Discipleship - Pastor E.A Adeboye

TOPIC: Cost of Discipleship

Memorise: And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple. – Luke 14:27

Read: Luke 14:25-27 (KJV)

25 And there went great multitudes with him: and he turned, and said unto them,

26 If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.

27 And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.

Bible in One Year: Zephaniah 1-3, Haggai 1-2, Psalms 89:1-14

MESSAGE:
Children of God are to decide wisely what they want to do with their relationship with Him. Jesus, in Luke 14:27 said;

“And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.”

A Cross is a symbol of responsibility, to say the least. It is a pointer to the fact that the path of discipleship is rugged and demanding. It demands a high level of determination to follow without looking back when faced with sufferings and temptations. This is why Jesus said in Luke 9:62; “…No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.”

The cost of discipleship is also found in the blessed call of Jesus Christ in Matthew 11:28-29:

“28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.”

It is costly to follow Jesus Christ for many reasons. Firstly, He has a yoke and whoever wants to follow Him must bear that yoke with Him. An example of this yoke is found in John 4:43 where Jesus said;

“…My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.”

Whoever fails to share this burden with Jesus cannot be His disciple. Secondly, the one who wants to be a disciple of Christ must learn of Him, he must pattern His life after Christ’s life and one major way to pattern one’s life after Jesus Christ is to be meek and lowly in heart.

Philippians 2:5-8 says:

“5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: 6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: 7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: 8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.”

Beloved, you have to know that discipleship has its price, but it is highly rewarding. Jesus Christ said, “… and ye shall find rest unto your souls.”(Matthew 11:29).

Prayer Point:
Father, help me to pay the cost of discipleship, so that I can gain the immeasurable blessing of a genuine disciple.
