TODAY’S PRAYER POINTS BY MIKE PRAH
Begin with praising the name of the Lord. God instructs Him with thanksgiving and praise.
Today’s prayer is based on the Prophet David’s prayer from Psalm 146.

The Lord frees the prisoners. 8 The Lord opens the eyes of the blind. The Lord lifts up those who are weighed down. The Lord loves the godly. 9 The Lord protects … but He frustrates the plans of the wicked.” Psalm 146:5-9 NLT
