Father in heaven, as we thank You for this day, we touch and agree on the next person's behalf. There is someone in the midst praying for something we have no knowledge of; however, we all know You can and will bring their petitions to pass. Father, cover the praying person from the crown of their head to the soul of their feet. Ease their mind and spirit. Comfort and heal them. Hold their hand as they travel through a place where they had to call on Your name. Allow them to feel safe and feel Your presence. Give them confidence in knowing they will be the victor, and You have it all worked out in their favor. In Jesus' name, amen.
