TODAY’S PRAYER POINTS BY MIKE PRAH
Begin with praising the name of the Lord. God instructs Him with thanksgiving and praise.
Today’s prayer is based on the Prophet David’s prayer from Psalm 3
“You, O Lord, are a shield around me; You are my glory, my wonderful God, the One who holds my head high. 4 I cried out to the Lord, and He answered me from His holy mountain. 5 I lay down and slept, yet I woke up in safety, for the Lord was watching over me. 6 I am not afraid of ten thousand enemies who surround me on every side. 7 Arise, O Lord! Rescue me, my God! Slap all my enemies in the face! … 8 Victory comes from you, O Lord. May you bless your people.” Psalm 3:3-8 (NLT)
