Read Story: SEASON 1 EPISODE 10
THE PROPOSAL (1)
I decided to personally go on a three day dry
fasting and praying before going to propose to her.
I was determined to posses my possession.
The first day, I prayed.
“I must possess what belong to me. Father, give
me this Canaan Land. It belongs to me and no man
can take it away from me”
I passionately prayed that night.
I had a dream. In the dream, I saw that same man
I’ve always seen. I was praying in the dream. I saw
as he walked and passed me shaking his head in a
negative and pitiable manner at me. I was
surprised. He just looked at me and left without
saying anything, still shaking his head.
I woke up, but didn’t understand what the dream
The second day, I prayed even more fervently,
though physically very weak.
“That which is mine is mine. I claim it by fire. I
resist every rival and competitor. I stand my
ground. I crush every Egyptian Army trying to hinder
me. I command every red Sea on my way to divide
right now. I will walk on dry ground. This Canaan
Land is mine in the name of Jesus” I prayed.
That night, I had the same dream. He was just
looking at me and shaking his head in pity.
I woke up again. This time I prayed for the meaning
of the dream, but no answer.
The third day, I was terribly weak, but I still won’t
give up. I prayed again and again and again and
The dream was still the same.
I got fed up. The next day, I broke the fast and
determine to go ahead and propose to Esther, no
So, the day came. Bro. James was with me at
home. He saw the way I was dressing up. I
selected my best shoe and suit outfit. I made sure I
appear “take away”.
“Ehm…..GC, do you have a ministerial
appointment?” Bro James asked me.
“Yes…..this appointment is more than anyone I
have ever gone to” I said. “Please, help me check
my tie, hope it’s properly set?” I asked him as I
tried to adjust the tie well.
“So, GC, where are you going? I can follow you
there, at least to help you” He said.
“You may not bother. I’ll tell you when I get back” I
said as I pick up my Bible and head down the road
leading to sister Esther’s house.
Sister Esther was at home when I came.
She was surprised to see me. I have never visited
any sister alone before. That day was my first. I
“Ha…..GC…..in my house?” She exclaimed and
quickly rushed to get me a chair to sit outside. She
sat on another chair opposite me.
“Good afternoon, my sister. How are you doing
today?” I greeted her with a ministerial smile.
“I’m fine, sir. It’s a surprise seeing you here. You’ve
never visited me before. Anyway, how’s everything?
Studies and the Ministry?” She said.
I was feeling really happy at her welcoming attitude.
“Would you like something to drink?” She asked
“No….you don’t need to bother yourself, my sister” I
said with a broad and confident smile.
“So, what brought you here” she said politely.
“Actually…….ehm…” I cleared my throat.
“Let us pray” I said.
She went inside to get her scarf.
“Father, whatever we are going to discuss, let your
Spirit guide every statement”
She said “Amen”
“Let your power control this atmosphere right now”
“Holy Ghost, charge everywhere up right now” I kept
She said “Amen”
“And I command by the power of God, that every
forces of darkness that want to mitigate or militate
or orchestrate any distraction, be crushed in the
name of Jesus” I almost spoke in tongues, but I
cautioned myself that it’s not a prayer meeting
“Amen” she shouted
“Give me Divine utterance….Father, Spiritual
wisdom that cannot be resisted, so I can freely
communicate this wonderful revelation to your
daughter. In Jesus mighty name I have prayed”
“Amen” she said.
“My sister, I have been praying” I started. “And the
Lord has been speaking to me with various
revelations, inspirations and confirmations” I said.
She was very attentive.
“I need a prayer partner” I said
“What about bro. Paul? That brother can pray ooo.
Hmmmmm, I believe he can be of great help to
you” she said.
The way she said it made me afraid.
“Has she accepted bro. Paul’s proposal?” I said
“Notwithstanding, let me keep shooting my arrows.
It may touch her heart and make her change her
mind even if she has said “Yes” to him” I said
within me and continued.
“Hmmmmmmm….I need one who will join me to
win souls for God” I continued.
“Bro. Caleb can assist you in that area. He’s very
zealous when it comes to soul winning” she said.
“Chai…! This sister…hope she didn’t accept bro.
Caleb’s proposal? I must possess my possession
today” I told myself.
“I need one who will help me to bear my burden” I
“Jesus Christ is our burden bearer. You can always
carry all your burdens to Him. I know the Ministry
work has not been easy, coupled with the fact that
you are in your final year. I believe the Lord will
help you, sir” she said to me.
“This sister is not understanding my spiritual codes.
Is she not supposed to at least discern what I’m
trying to say? What do I do now? How do I put this
proposal?” I was deep in thought, when her voice
jolted me back to reality.
“GC…. hope all is well? You’re not saying anything”
“Hmmmmmmm…. sister Esther, let me just be
plain, I came here to ask if you…..ehm….” I couldn’t find the strength to say it out as I
scratched my head.
“Ehm…..what I want to say is….ehm.. will
you….ehm…. Will you marry me” I eventually spoke
She kept quiet for sometime, then looked at me.
“GC…..NO!” She stood up and went inside leaving
me alone outside.
I have been hearing of heart break before, now I
know what it truly means, because I just experience
one. My heart was not only broken, my confidence
and hope was shattered.
