I am perhaps the most insignificant human who came out of Your Word. I hope I am not disturbing Your busy schedules, but I have somethings bothering me and there is no one to ask, but You. Pardon me if I called on You at the wrong time. I ask for Your forgiveness.
My Lord God, some people are presenting themselves as Your mouthpieces here on earth, maintaining that they are special and holy and set apart by You and made to stand out among men as Your chosen ones. In fact, they even say, they usually come to You in Your Heavenly Kingdom to recommend to You how You must administer affairs here on earth.
They keep saying that You said this and that, but more often than not, they contradict themselves, making we the sinners, Samarians and Gentiles, get confused. To be honest, sometimes we are force to believe that… No, I cannot say this about You. I remove what I was about to say from my mouth, in Jesus’ Name. So let me go on with what I have.
My Lord God, there are three of such prophets – Owusu-Bempah, Nigel Gaisie and Badu Kobi – in this blessed homeland of ours called Ghana, who seem to stand tall, saying things they claim You said, but many, including I, believe You did not.
Every last day of December, or first few days of January, they will come and say that You have decreed to end the lives of some prominent persons, among many others. My Lord God, everything they say is so gloomy that I want to stand on behalf of all mankind, and on my sinful behalf, that if we have wronged You in anyway, please forgive us and speak, longevity, prosperity, success, peace and tranquillity into our lives, small.
My Lord God, two years ago, in November 2019, a certain disease called Coronavirus entered into the world. My Lord God, even though during that ending of 2019 the new disease did not seem harmful, You should have told us that it was like a green snake under green grass waiting for the opportunity to strike.
My Lord God, You see, when Your chosen ones were telling us about all the glooms that will occur in 2020, including those to lose the General Elections here in Ghana and the USA, they never gave us any message from You about this disease.
My Lord God, it was after it started devastating the world that one of Your anointed prophets, Owusu-Bempah, raised his hand on point of order and said that You did mention something like that. However, due to the fact that the name Coronavirus, COVID-19, was a mouthful to him, he could not remember how to pronounce it and so decided not to give us Your message on that. Can You imagine?
My Lord God, we lived the greater part of last year under this pandemic, which, for the first time, exposed the White Man as someone who cannot manage things after all.
My Lord God, now we hear that this virus has started a second wave and even started mutating to become seventy percent more deadly than before, we were very eager to hear something from You. What is Covid-19 and did You allow it to do what it is doing to us?
My Lord God, all Your anointed prophets spoke about what You have for us in 2021, but again they said nothing about Covid-19. At least, we all assume that Owusu-Bempah can now remember how to pronounce the name, but he was silent. Is it that You have decided to tell us nothing about this pandemic? Lord God, please tell us something. We want to know more about this disease and how to curb it, please.
My Lord God, for example, what does 2021 have in store for us so far as Covid-19 is concerned? We hear of some vaccines to combat the virus which were produced within a year. How safe are these?
Lord God, allow me to use my infant mind here, because, if HIV was discovered in 1920 and one hundred years on no vaccine has been found, how come Covid-19 has a vaccine within a year after it entered the world You created?
My Lord God, please just whisper into our minds all that Covid-19 is up to this year, because those false prophets have not mentioned the pandemic in their prophetic homilies.
My Lord God, please we need to know why You allowed this pandemic to descend upon us. I know the world is moving towards the other side – to the enemy. We have now decided that it is wrong to mention Your Name to children in school; we have now decided that same sex relationships is permitted by You, since it was You who made some people to desire same sex; we are now saying that the human mind you gave us must be respected, especially when it decides that we are not the sex we appear to be, so we can go under the knife and change our sexes; we have also decided same blooded siblings can have sex and even marry; even parents can have sexual relations with their children, and we even believe that so far as You created humans and the beasts to inhabit this world, man and beast can live together and have sex and even get married.
Lord God, I know that all we are doing today are seriously frowned upon in Your Holy Book called the Holy Bible or Holy Scriptures. However, the same people who introduced You to us are now saying You made a typo error when typing the Holy Bible, which You have now amended.
Lord God, I know You must be very angry by now, but please hold Your breath, for it is said about You that You are very slow to anger, but over abundantly rich in forgiveness. So do forgive us; please find it in Your Heart to forgive us.
However, my Lord God, do me a favour. Can You find some appropriate jobs for all these so-called prophets, who do nothing but ridicule Your Holy Name by prophesying falsehood and claiming You directed them to. Just find some other jobs for them, anything but politics, because that department is choked. My Lord God and raise good prophets from among us, like You used to do in those ages, long gone past.
Before I forget, my Lord God, Your prophet Nigel Gaisie said the other day that You have relocated Morocco from North Africa to North America. My Lord God, if I had known of Your plans earlier, I would have humbly requested that You relocate Ghana to North America. If it is not too late, please relocate us to the Canada area, so that we learn to conduct our lives well in the midst of cold and freezing temperatures. We will need that change of climate and living conditions, so if it is not too late, grant me this my request.
Thanks for Your attention.
From Your Most Wretched Servant.
