PRAYER POINTS BY MIKE PRAH
Begin your prayer time by worshiping God and thanking Him for all He’s done for you.
Today’s prayer is based on King Jehoshaphat’s prayer from 2 Chronicles 20.
“12 O our God … We are powerless against this mighty army that is about to attack us. We do not know what to do, but we are looking to you for help.” 14 the Spirit of the Lord came upon one of the men standing there 15 He said … This is what the Lord says: Do not be afraid! Don’t be discouraged by this mighty army, for the battle is not yours, but God’s.” (2 Chronicles 20:12,14-15, NLT)
