This book, by Z.T. Fomum, highlights one of the Biblical models that made God her Eternal Bliss.

Anna the prophetess, after having known gratification from natural pleasures and desires, chose neither withdrawal, seclusion, the temple, nor a life of prayer and fasting. Instead, she chose God! God was her only choice. Living in total seclusion, she happily accepted everything that accompanied her only choice. She withdrew in an attempt to give Him endless praise night and day without distraction, from a life of worship.

This book is a cry from the heart of the author to raise in our generation many "Annas", lovers serving out of love and not servants who will do many things for Him out of duty.

Read this book and get yourself enlisted into the army of secluded worshippers.

The Author’s Prayer For Himself And For The Book

Lord, thank You for the life that the prophetess Anna lived.

Lord, receive honour for working out such high spirituality in a mortal.

Lord, thank You that You did not keep it all for Yourself but opted to share it with us in Your Word.

Lord, thank You for the encouragement that her life, ministry and glorification bring to me - that if I will only yield myself more fully to You, You can in our day work out the same in my life.

Lord, thank You for the encouragement that her life, ministry and glorification bring to me - that You can, You will in our day, raise many saints of unusual dedication and work out this same quality of spirituality in their lives for the glory of the Lamb.

Lord, thank You for the work You have done in me to take away most of the natural desires that characterized my life as an unbeliever and as a young believer.

Lord, as I have told You again this week, there is only one natural desire left in my life. Lord, it has persisted and I do not know if it is persisting because I am clinging to it or it is clinging because You have kept it there so that You may satisfy it. Lord, I offer it afresh to You. If You do not intend to satisfy it, if You will not be exalted in its being fulfilled, take it away now, O Lord.

Lord, I give You my heart. Own it and never allow it to have any room for any natural desires any more.

Lord, You can bless me in the natural realm since I continue to have a spirit, a soul and a body, but I pray, Lord, that I should not desire any fulfilment in the natural. Lord, grant that all my being be bent, bent in such a way that it cannot be straightened out, in the direction of spiritual desire.

Lord, grant that the salvation of my soul, will, mind and emotions be perfected.

Lord, I know spiritual desire and that desire is twofold: It is to know You, to love You and to live in Your presence and minister unto You. It is also to labour to ensure that all over the world, one billion people come to Your Exalted Son and render total obedience to Him in all things. Lord, as far as I know myself, the ratio of my desire to love You and to labour for You is 1:4. Lord, with that ratio, I am a servant who loves and not a lover who serves. Lord, I do not want to be the servant who loves. I want to be the lover who serves. I want to find all my joy and all my fulfilment in being at Your sight, seeing You, beholding the glory of Your beauty and being lost in worship. I want that to be my constant position from which I will withdraw to go and serve You only at Your command and to return to my place in Your presence immediately when the service is over. Lord, I pray that my heart, my soul and my all may find their home in You, that You be the dwelling place of my total being.

Lord, teach me how to co-operate with You so that the servant-lover will be transformed into the lover-servant.

Lord, I sense that I must spend more time in Your presence in prayer, praise, worship, adoration, thanksgiving, waiting and reading the Word than I spend in ministering in the labour to see people come to You and render an implicit obedience to You in all things. Lord, enable me to discipline myself to withdraw from the presence of man. Thank You that You have recently shown me during my trip to Britain that I can be fully fulfilled in Your presence alone. Lord, O for more of it.

Lord, since the ratio at the moment is 1:4; help me in the next two months to raise it to 1:3 and grant that by the end of the year, it should be 1:2, i.e out of the 18 hours of working each day, 6 will be given to You and 12 spent in Your service.

Lord, grant that I faithfully and honestly record all the use of time so that I will face the figure squarely.

Lord, grant that at the end of 1989, should You tarry, the ratio should be 1:1

Lord, grant that by December 1989 I shall have reached the place of Your call on my life to redeem 20 hours every day for work.

Lord, grant that throughout 1990, should You tarry, I should spend 10 hours in Your presence every day.

Lord, continue to work in me so that some day I shall spend 4 hours in Your presence for every hour that I spend in Your service.

Lord, in order that the work that You have called me to do does not suffer, I pray Lord that You bless everything that I do. I pray that You promote me into the plane of blessing so that the work of serving You one hour will produce fruit that abides one millionfold.

Lord, work in me so that You become and increase as my one Satisfaction and not merely be my one source of satisfaction. I pray, Lord, that what You provide should meet my need but that Yourself satisfy me. Lord, grant that the purpose that You had in creating me be accomplished.

Lord, teach me how to worship You.

Lord, make my life an unceasing source of thanksgiving to You for all that You have done, are doing and will do for me, in me and through me.

Lord, grant that each message that You give me to proclaim be clear, specific, authoritative and effective.

Lord, let me have the audience that You have for me each time: the lowly, the poor, the ignorant, the wise, the rich, kings, presidents, rulers, etc, and grant that I be faithful to You and to each in proclaiming what You have in store for me and for them.

Lord, grant me to know in each case when my ministry to a person or persons is over, and give me the courage and discipline not to say another word but to retreat into Your presence.

Lord, teach me how to say goodbye to people, things and places that have been useful in the past.

Lord, grant me to distinguish temporal from permanent relationships, and give me the grace to establish the permanent and dismiss the temporal when its time is over.

Lord, give me power to reproduce in my life the life of the Lord and to impart to all my spiritual children a life that satisfies God.

Lord, grant that I be so malleable in Your hands that I shall be at home in hiding as in exposure. Lord, let me know clearly when it is Your time to withdraw and when it is Your time to come to the public.

Lord, grant me to labour with the day of glorification in view.

Lord, grant that I be faithful in all things, so that I shall be crowned and enthroned with You.
