Every day is a day of prayer for believers, but it is especially a good day to pray even more on this National Day of Prayer.
Prayer is powerful because our God is all powerful and we are commanded to always pray as part of God’s will. Jesus reminded us to always pray and never give up (see Luke 18:1).
Prayer brings peace.
Prayer brings release.
Prayer stirs up hope.
Prayer changes us before it changes any other thing.
Prayer transforms hearts where every issue of life starts.
Prayer is communicating with God.
Prayer is listening.
Prayer is free therapy.
Prayer is faith building.
Prayer brings answers, opens and closes doors, shifts our focus and so much more.
Prayers offered in great expectation and believing will result in bountiful blessings and riches often beyond our capacity of receiving.
Prayer is what we keep doing until our earthly journey ends and our lungs are no longer breathing.
A Prayer using The Lord’s Prayer as a guide:
Creator and Lord of Heaven and Earth,
We worship and Honor You and Your Holy Name above all other names,
May Your Kingdom of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit come in us, in our hearts, and in our homes.
May Your kingdom come and Your will be done.
May Your divine will, Your prophetic promises and higher purposes and plans bring light, love, truth and freedom to the nations of the world and all across our homeland.
Thank You for meeting our daily needs, and for forgiving our many sins, as we are forgiving of all others who have hurt and wounded us, and we pray a blessing on every child, woman and man.
Thank You for empowering us by Your Holy Spirit to escape temptation, and to live free from the power of the evil one until the very end.
All this we pray to the glory of Your name, amen.
