TODAY’S PRAYER POINTS BY MIKE PRAH

Begin with praising the name of the Lord “for He is merciful and compassionate, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love”. 

Today’s prayer is based on the prophet Joel’s Prayer from Joel Chapter 2.

“12 The Lord says, “Turn to me now, while there is time. Give me your hearts … 13 Return to the Lord your God, for He is merciful and compassionate, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love … 19 The Lord will reply, “Look! I am sending you grain and new wine and olive oil, enough to satisfy your needs. You will no longer be an object of mockery among the surrounding nations. … 25 The Lord says, “I will give you back what you lost … 26 Once again you will have all the food you want, and you will praise the Lord your God, who does these miracles for you.  Never again will my people be disgraced. 27 Then you will know that I am among my people, that I am the Lord your God, and there is no other. Never again will my people be disgraced. 28 “Then, after doing all those things, I will pour out my Spirit upon all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy.  Your old men will dream dreams, and your young men will see visions. 30 And I will cause wonders in the heavens and on the earth … 32 Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved” (Joel 2:12-13, 19, 25-32, NLT)
