What to pray for that’s on your heart

Making this a “prayer week” is a great way to open yourself up to answering “all” of your “prayer requests”. I love to start this “prayer week” by asking God to show me what he wants me to pray for. From there, we can work together to create a plan for what to pray for specifically.
