TODAY’S PRAYER POINTS BY MIKE PRAH
Begin with praising the name of the Lord. God instructs us to enter His gates with thanksgiving and praise.
Today’s prayer is focused on the Prayer of Jabez.
“Jabez was more honorable than any of his brothers. His mother named him Jabez because his birth had been so painful. He was the one who prayed to the God of Israel, “Oh, that you would bless me and expand my territory! Please be with me in all that I do, and keep me from all trouble and pain!” And God granted him his request.” 1 Chronicles 4:9-10, NLT
