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 Paul’s prayer from Ephesians 3.

“I pray that from God’s glorious, unlimited resources He will empower you with inner strength through His Spirit. Then Christ will make His home in your hearts as you trust in Him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep His love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God. Now all glory to God, who is able, through His mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. Glory to Him … forever and ever! Amen” (Ephesians 3:16-21, NLT)
