Although he was born in Libreville, Gabon, Franck Olivier Houngnikpo is actually a young man from the Republic of Benin, where he studied and obtained an A Level certificate in Arts. In college, his love and passion for writing were fully realized, and naturally, he began to pursue this ambition. By 2009, Frank Olivier traveled to Ghana, where his interest in languages led him to pursue studies in English, Spanish, Italian, German, Chinese and Portuguese. However though, French is his natal language.
Currently, Mr. Houngnikpo teaches in a number of language schools and institutions in the Republic of Ghana. As an editor at Corporates Magazine, he also functions as a translator of various languages. His last book, ‘De Sa Deception a l’Engagement’ won the Pan African award of excellence in Ghana, in August 2014. He is also the author of ‘Margarita’s Dress’ (2011). In 2012, Mr. Houngnikpo served as General Secretary of the Association of Benin Students and Trainees in Ghana. And, 2014, he was elected President of the very same Association.
This book explores how people, dissimilar in needs, ask for God’s favor, for God’s grace. Prayer (Message) is an intimate conversation with our God, a perfect and holy God who welcomes pleas, complains, thanksgiving, gratitude… from everyone. We do ask, either we are right or wrong; whether we understand or not, we only need to ask. But, how does the Almighty God perceive our messages; how exactly does he feel about them? How can anything perfect comes from an imperfect being?
In Message To God, Houngnikpo plunges into human minds, filters their hearts and narrates their emotions with sensitivity and humor.
