Interview with Ezekiel Benson

When did you first start writing?
I started writing in the year 1989. My passion then was to inspire and motivate people to achieve greatness in whatever field of endeavor they find themselves
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
To see people inspired, motivated and driven to achieve greatness and succeed in life through the written pages of my books.
What do your fans mean to you?
My life revolves round them. They are the reason why I brain storm, stay up at night, researching and digging very deep into every available resources I can find with one aim and objective in my mind: "How can I help them achieve success and move from one level to the other?"

I love my fans and I appreciate the fact that they take time out to read my books. To everyone of them I say a very big "THANK YOU!" and I promise to continue developing life changing materials that will inspire them to achieve greatness.

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I love my wife and kids so much. I love taking them out or we just stay at home and have fun playing or sharing moments, experiences, watching movies or telling funny stories.
What is your writing process?
An Idea comes to my mind.
I think it through and play with some titles that will suit the idea.
I finally come up with a title
I Research extensively and pray for guidance
I make an outline which helps me in building the content of my ideas
I write as my ideas begins to take shape and form in my mind
I cross check with other authors and friends, running my idea by them
Then I finally develop the book and give out to other professional authors for proof reading
How do you approach cover design?
I have skills with graphics design. So I design all my covers myself. It might shock you to know that I use MS Power-point and Microsoft paint for all my book covers. And when designing my book covers I pay close attention to the clarity and sharpness of the title. Even if the book cover design is reduced in size, I make sure that my potential readers would still be able to make out and read the book title without straining their eyes.

If the title of a book is blurry, it makes no sales. Proper use of font colours, graphics and backgrounds is what makes the difference.
What's the story behind your latest book?
My latest book is titled:


Anyone raising children knows how difficult things can get but also what a blessing the children are. We all desire to raise God fearing, prayerful, obedient and intelligent children. But everything starts from knowing God personally which is achieved through prayer and study of the Word of God.

So many kids don’t know how to pray or what to say to God in prayer. Teaching kids how to pray and depend on God in faith will make great men and women out of them. It will also help to inspire them to follow the right course of life which is sadly missing in our society today. With a massive increase in acts of lawlessness, drug addiction, and all forms of vices among our youths today the need to get children back into the place of God should be given utmost priority. Kids the world over need God and they need to know how to pray and relate with him.

For this reason I have written this book "From Your Lips to God’s Ears - A Daily Prayer Guide for Children". This guide was written to provide children with scriptures – promises of God that they can use to pray. It also gives them prayer points for those scriptures. It also helps children to develop a richer fellowship with God. It contains prayers that are based on the Word of God. The reason is God desires that we remind him of his promises when we pray. Through this book Kid's will pray quoting God’s promises to him; they can be pray and be rest assured that their prayers are based on the Word of God.

In addition, daily use of this prayer guide will teach kid's how to use scriptures to talk to God and with time they would have committed the scriptures used in this book to memory which will further bless and enrich their life.

Let’s talk about the content of this prayer guide. From Your Lips to God’s Ears contains scriptures and prayers that should make up our daily devotion. The scripture and prayers points covers:

Opening Thanksgiving And Praise
Forgive Others
Ask For Forgiveness
Fresh Infilling Of The Holy Spirit And Anointing
Actions & Attitudes
Father And Mother
Brothers And Sisters
Obedience, Honour And Respect
Wisdom, Knowledge, Quick Understanding, Retentive Memory And Good Success In My Studies
Bright And Prosperous Future
Safety And Protection
Unsaved Loved One
Closing Thanks Giving
Bed Time Prayers
20 Minutes - Flash Prayer Points

Kid's using this guide can be a blessing to themself, father, mother, brothers, sisters, loved ones and nation. Spending time praying using this prayer guide will help them to make spiritual investments into their future that will lead to their success and prosperity in life.


Due to popular demand, I have added Bed-Time prayer in the guide. This is to help kids pray with assurance that God is with them and that he is going to watch over them as they sleep peacefully.

From Your Lips To God's Ears is a must for all Kids!
