TODAY’S PRAYER POINTS BY MIKE PRAH

Begin with praising the name of the Lord. Jesus taught us to begin our prayer with “Hallowed be Your God”. The word “hallow” means to honor, to bless, greatly revere or respect. Click the hyperlink at the end of this page for a list of God’s names to worship.

Today’s prayer is based on the Lord’s Prayer from Matthew 6:9-13

“In this manner, pray: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your Name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. Forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. Do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen” Matthew 6:9-13, NKJV

Seek, receive and thank God for these six promises from the Lord’s prayer

 

1. PRAY FOR GOD’S PRESENCE

“Our Father in heaven”

 

2. PRAY FOR GOD’S PURPOSE

“Your will be done on earth as it is heaven”

Pray for the Church specifically as follows:

(v). Pray that our church would receive God’s direction and vision. That the congregation gets nourished from the teaching of His Word

(vi). Pray for the Pastor & his family and the congregation that we will have the strength and endurance to serve by the power of the Holy Spirit

 

8. PRAY FOR YOUR CHILDREN & DESCENDANTS

“I will pour out my Spirit into your children and my blessing on your descendants.Your children will grow like a tree … beside streams of water.” Isaiah 44:3-4 (NCV)​

(b). Pray for God’s covering on your children for the school season

(c). Pray for those seeking to have children
