PRAYER POINTS WITH MIKE PRAH
Begin with praising the name of the Lord. “Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever”.
Today’s prayer is based on the prophet Daniel’s Prayer from Daniel 2.
“Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever; wisdom and power are His. 21 He changes times and seasons; He deposes kings and raises up others. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning. 22 He reveals deep and hidden things; He knows what lies in darkness, and light dwells with Him. 23 I thank and praise you, God of my ancestors: You have given me wisdom and power, You have made known to me what we asked of You” (Daniel 2:20-23, NIV)
Pray, receive and thank God for His character and blessings He shares from the above scripture.
1. PRAY FOR GOD’S KNOWLEDGE & WISDOM

2. PRAY FOR GOD’S POWER
“Power are His … You have given me power” (vs. 20, 23)
