TODAY’S PRAYER POINTS BY MIKE PRAH
Begin your prayer time by worshiping God and thanking Him for all He’s done for you.
Today’s prayer is based on Psalm 46

The Lord of Heaven’s Armies is here among us; the God of Jacob is our fortress. 8 Come, see the glorious works of the Lord … “Be still, and know that I am God! I will be honored by every nation.
