TODAY’S PRAYER POINTS BY MIKE PRAH
Begin with praising the name of the Lord. God instructs us to enter His gates with thanksgiving and praise.
Today’s prayer is focused on God’s promises from Psalm 18.
“1 I love you, Lord. You are my strength. 2 The Lord is my rock, my protection, my Savior. My God is my rock. I can run to him for safety. He is my shield and my saving strength, my defender. 3 I will call to the Lord, who is worthy of praise, and I will be saved from my enemies. 25 Lord, you are loyal to those who are loyal, and you are good to those who are good. 26 You are pure to those who are pure, but you are against those who are bad.27 You save the humble, but you bring down those who are proud. 28 Lord, you give light to my lamp. My God brightens the darkness around me. 29 With your help I can attack an army. With God’s help I can jump over a wall.” Psalm 18:1-3, 25-29 (NCV)
