Joyce Meyer Daily Devotional April 15 2022 : One of the most powerful prayers you can pray is a prayer for your enemies. If you want to see someone who is mighty in prayer, look for the person who will intercede for an enemy.
I believe that God blesses us tremendously when we intercede for those who have offended or betrayed us. Remember Job? He had to pray for his friends after they had really hurt and disappointed him. But immediately after he prayed, God began to restore his life. In fact, God gave him back twice as much as he had lost (see Job 42:10)!
Praying for someone who has hurt us is so powerful because, when we do, we are walking in love toward that person, and we are obeying the Word of God. We can hear God’s voice in the verse for today. What does Jesus tell us to do in this verse? He instructs us to pray for our enemies.
When you think about the people who have used you, abused you, harassed you, and spoken evil of you, bless them; do not curse them. Pray for them. God knows that blessing your enemies is not easy and that you may not feel like doing it. But you don’t do it because you feel like it; you do it as unto the Lord. Choosing to pray and bless instead of curse is very powerful in the spiritual realm, and God will do great things in your life as a result.
Prayer Starter: Lord Jesus, in Your name, I pray for and bless those who have used me, abused me, harassed or spoken against me. I ask You to shower them with blessings, rather than cursing them. I pray this in Jesus’ name, amen.

What is a prayer request?
Prayer request is a call for prayer assistance either to a man of God or a prayer group. It simply means requesting others to join you and pray for your desires. Kindly note that making a prayer request or asking others to pray for you does not relieve you of the need to engage in personal prayers. Prayer request is made to have others join their faith to yours and call upon the Almighty God on your behalf. So while you have made a prayer request, do not stop praying too.
purpose of prayer request
The purpose of prayer requests is to get more people involved in praying. Prayer is more powerful when lots of people are praying for the same things. It’s also an excellent way of showing support for other church members. Especially if you’re all praying for someone in the church – it makes them feel loved and cared for. As a result, this also builds your community and increases the sense of belonging many people have.
How to Write prayer request
Firstly, understand that this doesn’t have to be a long thing. There’s no need to write paragraph after paragraph – it should get to the point and ask for people’s support. Generally, prayer requests should follow this simple structure:
- A catchy opening line
- Detailing the problem/prayer focus
- Thanking people for the help
