Over the weekend I received an email from a friend who said:
We need your prayers, all hell has broken loose in our lives. The devil has attacked me on my job, in our finances and upon my ministry. Please keep us in your prayers we need a breakthrough.
It occurred to me that in these uncertain economic times, when so many are losing their jobs and when times are tough and getting tougher, many people probably feel the same way. Here is the prayer I wrote for my friend. Perhaps God may use it to encourage you to pray this way for yourself or for someone you know.
So I pray for my friend. Deliver him. Come to his aid. Touch his work. Touch his finances. Touch his ministry, his marriage and his family with your Holy Spirit power. Pour out upon him new faith and new joy and new courage in these tough days. Help him so that when the day is done and the battle won, he will still be standing strong for you. May he not be blown away by opposition. Put a seal on his mouth, Lord, when he is tempted to let loose and say something dumb. Encourage him with signs of your grace. May my friend be renewed in his spirit.
