TODAY’S PRAYER POINTS WITH PASTOR MIKE PRAH
Begin with praising the name of the Lord. God instructs us to come before Him with thanksgiving and praise.
Today’s prayer is based on the Prophet David’s prayer from Psalm 67.
“May God be merciful and bless us. May His face smile with favor on us. Look on us with kindness 2 May your ways be known throughout the earth, your saving power among people everywhere. 4 Let the whole world sing for joy, because you govern the nations with justice and guide the people of the whole world. 6 Then the earth will yield its harvests, and God, our God, will richly bless us. 7 Yes, God will bless us, and people all over the world will fear Him.” Psalm 67 (NLT+GN)
