About Hotel Adonai

The Story Behind The Vision- A Christian Hotel
The Prophecy, the Vision and the Assignment

Several years ago, the Lord spoke to me to build Him a house where Preachers, Missionaries, Evangelists and Pastors traveling to Ghana would have a place to stay that was filled with His presence. It was to also be a place for local pastors and preachers who needed secluded time with the Lord away from their homes.   I saw the vision vividly, but considering the financial constraints of building such a house I thought it nearly impossible.  Nevertheless, I obeyed.

For months after the vision, I was so overwhelmed, pressured, and burdened to build “the house”.  At the time, my situation wasn’t conducive for embarking on such Vision ---trying to establish my family, and stresses from every side were coming against me.  The Lord led me to do several days of intense prayer and fasting.  That’s when I heard Him speak saying, “Attempt great things FOR GOD, and expect great things FROM GOD.”

In 2004, New Year’s Eve, my pastor, Pastor David Carter (New Life Assemblies of God in Virginia, USA), asked me to organize and lead a prayer for our New Year’s Eve Watch Night Service.  During the preparation of my sermon, the Lord spoke instructing me not to research or read my message from any source. I spent the whole day in my little closet praying to the Lord for a message. At 7:30 p.m. that evening, I still did not have a message or a topic to stand on for the service. I started crying out loud saying, “I want to hear from you, Lord.  Please speak to me”.  Then the Lord instructed me to read the Gospel of Mark, chapter 11. 

1As they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage and Bethany at the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two of his disciples, 2 saying to them, “Go to the village against you, and just as you enter it, you will find a colt tied there, which no one has ever ridden. Untie it and bring it here. 3If anyone asks you, ‘Why are you doing this?’ tell him, ‘The Lord needs it and will send it back here shortly.’”  4They went and found a colt outside in the street, tied at a doorway. As they untied it, 5some people standing there asked, “What are you doing, untying that colt?” 6They answered as Jesus had told them to, and the people let them go. 7When they brought the colt to Jesus and threw their cloaks over it, he sat on it.  – Mark 11:1-7

After reading this scripture, it didn’t make much sense to me.  I didn’t understand how to apply a “tied colt” to a New Year’s Eve sermon.  Then the Lord revealed His word to me.  Through divine wisdom He revealed that the tied colt represented my glory, honor, favor, power, anointing, and salvation.  He told me that the colt was my blessings; my riches and prosperity.  But that they had been tied.  He instructed me to, “go through opposition and difficulty (“Go to the village AGAINST you…) and untie and take possession of your ‘LOST TREASURE,’ and if anybody comes and questions you as to why you are loosing your blessings and taking possession just tell them that the Lord is in need of my blessings and prosperity for the advancement of HIS kingdom.”  I heard it loud and clear that the Lord needed the riches He had given me to build a Hotel in HIS honor---HIS HOUSE. 

During my ministration, I felt that it was raining all over me, like I was being showered with blessings upon blessings.  Then the Lord told me to ask HIM for financial blessings to accomplish this mission.  I was again obedient.  Hotel Adonai is the result of simple obedience. 


I truly believed that I had made a covenant with God just in an attempt to build an edifice dedicated to Him.  On the basis of that covenant, and the promises associated with it, I had found a name for the hotel.  The hotel was to be called Emmanuel Redeemer Hotel, Emmanuel being my birth-given name.  However, as confident as I was with the name, it didn’t sit well in my Spirit. 

Five days prior to the hotel’s grand opening, the Lord gave me a new name.  One that corresponds with the fulfillment of a promise only our Sovereign God can honor.  And He has truly honored His promise. 
One day, I was meditating on 1 Chronicles 17:16 where King David said, “Who am I, O Lord God, and what is my family that you have brought me this far?”  I meditated hard on this scripture and began to cry.  This story is actually a reflection of the story of my twin brother, Ebenezer, and me in carrying out this assignment.  However, for King David, God had brought him far---leading me to believe that perhaps God was WALKING with him.  But for me, the Lord is actually CARRYING us, considering the magnitude of His Blessings. So I am not surprised how this hotel was built because I know that HIS promises are Yea and Amen. 

During the building process, I knew it took only a SOVEREIGN GOD to do what He did for me in attempting, completing, and maintaining a hotel dedicated to His Name and to His Glory.  Fully understanding and accepting this, I changed the original name to its current name ADONAI, meaning our SOVEREIGN GOD, (Genesis 15:2-8). 

The Names Of The Rooms
Hotel Adonai was not just built by faith, but it is operated by Christian concepts.  However, Hotel Adonai DOES NOT discriminate against non-Christians.  Like any other hotel, we too welcome and appreciate our guests and offer top-notch services to ensure our guests are having a comforting stay. The only distinguishing factor between Hotel Adonai and other hospitality establishments is that we are a Smoke/Alcohol-Free environment.

Another feature which differs from other hotels is that at Hotel Adonai our rooms are names, instead of numbers. The instructions for naming, instead of numbering, was a result from hearing the Lord speak that every guest will feel His Presence and Power, and that His presence would inhibit the house.  I also heard Him say, “Let my people stay where My Spirit is…”  Thus the slogan was birthed“Stay Where The Spirit Is…” 

Hotel Adonai has 17 luxury rooms, all named after the 17 attributes of God.  Each room has been anointed so that the guests stay there will be surrounded by Peace and Serenity. A guest will stand on the name of the room assigned to him for his devotion and prayer. If you are assigned to room Ropheka, for instance, and you need healing, then you stand on that name to pray to the Lord your God who “Healeth Thee”. The names of the rooms are as follow:

  • Room Jehovah ADONAI… (Our Sovereign God, GEN. 15:2-8)
  • Room Jehovah JIREH… (Our Provider, GEN. 22:8-14)
  • Room Jehovah EL-SHADDAI… (Our Sufficiency, GEN. 22:17)
  • Room Jehovah ROPHEKA (Our Healer, EX. 15:26)
  • Room Jehovah NISSI… (Our Banner, EX. 17:15)
  • Room Jehovah ELOHEEKA… (Thy God, EX. 20:7, 25)
  • Room Jehovah MEKADDISHEEM… (The God who Sanctifies, EX. 31:13)
  • Room Jehovah SHALOM… (Our Peace, JUDGES 6:24)
  • Room Jehovah SABOATH… (Lord of Hosts, 1 SAM. 1:3)
  • Room Jehovah ROHI… (My Shepherd, PSALM 23:1)
  • Room Jehovah ELYON… (The Lord Most High, PSALM 47:2)
  • Room Jehovah HOSEENU… (Our Maker, PSALM 95:6)
  • Room Jehovah ELOHEENU… (Our God, PSALM 99:5, 8, 9)
  • Room Jehovah TSIDEKENU… (Our Righteousness, JER. 23:6)
  • Room Jehovah SHAMMAH… (Is Present, EX. 48:35)
  • Room Jehovah ELOHIM… (Our Eternal Creator, Gen.2:4-25)
  • Room Jehovah IMMEKU… (God Is with you, Judges 6:12)

If you are moved by our testimony, I humbly ask that you choose Adonai Hotel and encourage others to consider our hotel when coming to Ghana.  I personally promise to ensure their stay will be life-changing.  It is my fervent and humble prayers that for every blessing the Lord has given me to accomplish His Mission and to fulfill this Vision, the guests here will receive one thousand fold of the Lord’s blessings to fulfill His purposes for your life on earth. Amen.
