This prayer is powerful, and prayer is one of the best gifts we receive.
There is no cost but a lot of rewards. Let's continue to pray for one another.
The prayer:
Father, I ask You to bless my friends, relatives and those that I care deeply for, who are reading this right now. Show them a new revelation of your love and power. Holy Spirit, I ask You to minister to their spirit at this very moment. Where there is pain, give them Your peace and mercy... Where there is self-doubt, release a renewed confidence through Your grace...
Where there is need, I ask You to fulfill their needs. Bless their homes, families, finances, their goings and their comings. In Jesus' precious name. Amen.
